NEW DELHI: The first round of the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2021 for admission to engineering programmes may be conducted in February 2021. The second JEE Main 2021 examination date is likely to be in May instead of April.
JEE Main 2021 exam likely to be conducted in February and May, according to the Careers360 latest reports.
The JEE Main is typically held twice a year to allow candidates two attempts and that is not likely to change despite the disruptions created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Conducting the first JEE Main 2021 in January as is the norm would be “almost impossible”, the official said.
They added that they will “hopefully” conduct it by the end of February. The second round of the exam is typically conducted in April but “that is less likely” as well, said the official.
“We are speaking to all the boards, but the local factors and issues that states have to deal with because of the pandemic make it difficult for any state to commit on a firm basis,” said the official.
