NTA JEE Main 2021: Hours after the release, the NTA has pulled off the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2021 notification from the official website — jeemain.nta.nic.in. As per the brochure, from the next academic year, JEE Main will be held in multiple shifts- February, March, April and May.
JEE Main 2021 exam dates have been announced by the National Testing Agency (NTA). The JEE Main 2021 will be held from February 22 to 25 in online mode.
Also, given the extraordinary circumstances, all candidates appearing for JEE-Main next year will have to attempt 75 questions out of 90 – or 25 out of questions 30 in each section of Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. Students did not have a choice of questions until this year.
75% eligibility criteria in class 12 Board may also get relaxed for JEE 2021 because of the difficulty faced by students in COVID-19 pandemic. Candidates may not require a minimum score of 75% marks in class XII Board exams or rank among the top 20 percentile in their qualifying examinations
The Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development (now known as Ministry of Education), Government of India has entrusted the responsibility of conducting Joint Entrance Examination JEE (Main) to the NTA from 2019 onwards.
The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE Main) comprises of two papers. The Paper1 is conducted for admission to Undergraduate Engineering Programs (B.E/B. Tech) at NITs, IIITs, other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs), Institutions/Universities funded/recognized by participating State Governments, as well as an eligibility test for JEE (Advanced), which is conducted for admission to IITs.
The change in the question paper format is being introduced to accommodate school boards that have reduced class 11 and 12 syllabus and those that have not, NTA informed.
The JEE (Main) is being conducted in multiple Sessions (February/March/April/May 2021) for admissions in the next academic session. The candidates will thus benefit in the following ways:
- This will give multiple opportunities to the candidates to improve their scores in the examination if they fail to give their best in the first attempt without wasting their whole academic year.
- In first attempt, the students will get a first-hand experience of taking an examination and will know their mistakes which they can improve while attempting for the next time.
- This will reduce the chances of dropping a year and droppers would not have to waste a full year.
- If anyone missed the examination due to reasons beyond control, then he/she will not have to wait for one full year.
The student’s best of the 2021 NTA Scores will be considered for preparation of Merit List/ Ranking.
