JEE Mains 2023: While hearing a petition on Tuesday, the Bombay High Court denied a request to delay the JEE Mains 2023 exam.
“Any orders issued to delay may have a domino effect. If a student performs poorly on the JEE in January, he can compete in April. There appear to be no extraordinary circumstances. The court stated during the hearing, as reported by Livelaw, that it would not be appropriate to prevent the respondent from conducting a pan-India examination.
Anubha Sahai, attorney and president of India Wide Parents Association, filed a petition against NTA on this issue on December 26 in the High Court.
The majority of state boards have scheduled their pre-board and board exams for January 2023. Therefore, it will be difficult for students to sit for the Main Exam,” stated the PIL.
The PIL also requested that the High Court examine the possibility of removing the ‘75% marks in board exams’ criterion for admissions to IIT and NITs, which was reinstated by the National Testing Agency for JEE Mains in 2023.
While hearing the PIL, the bench of Acting Chief Justice SV Gangapurwala and Justice Sandeep V. Marne stated, “Your issue today concerns the date. At the time of June admission, eligibility requirements will be considered. Therefore, please limit your discussion to the issue of date today.”
The National Testing Authority has recently released the exam schedule for the first session of JEE Mains in 2023. Exam dates are January 24, 25, 27, 28, 29, 30, and 31, 2023.
Aspirants began flooding Twitter with requests to postpone the JEE Mains 2023 exams to April due to scheduling conflicts with state board exams, pre board exams, practical exams, and entrance exams such as CLAT (Common Law Admission Test) and NDA (National Defence Academy).
