Status of JEE Advanced after the pandemic:
Due to the worldwide spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, many students faced issues in giving their examinations in 2020. Hence, some couldn’t appear for their JEE mains and some were unable to crack due to various reasons. Therefore, these students have requested for some relaxations. They even reached out to Mr. Ramesh Pokriyal and the IIT Delhi Director, as IIT Delhi was the conducting authority. Hence, these students have been requesting an additional attempt.
The Ministry of Education will attend to these requests and questions now. Many students from the batch of 2020 are hoping for an additional attempt this time.
Eligibility for JEE Advanced 2021:
Students who have appeared for their 12th Board Examination in the preceding year can sit for the exam. Hence, students who had appeared for the 12th Board Examination in 2019 cannot sit for JEE Advanced 2021. Also, two attempts will be given for JEE Advanced 2021.
