New Delhi: The National Testing Agency (NTA) has revealed the dates on which it will release the admit card or hall tickets for Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main and National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET). This announcement comes as an addition to the previous announcement where the NTA had announced the revised dates for the college admission exam for admission into engineering and medical colleges. The candidates who have applied can check the official notice on the official website. The complete schedule along with the guidelines is still awaited.
The NEET examination will be held on July 26 from 2 pm to 5 pm across India, according to the NTA. The exam conducting body announced that the admit card will be released 15 days prior to the examination. This implies that the admit card for the NEET exam will probably be available from July 11 or in the second week of July.
The JEE Main exam will be held from July 18 to July 23 in two shifts. The timing of the morning session is from 9 am till noon and for the afternoon session, from 3 pm to 6 pm. According to the notice issued by the NTA, the admit card for the JEE Main exam is likely to be released somewhere around the first week of July.
The JEE Main exam was earlier scheduled to be held on April 5, 7, 9, and 11. Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ had announced earlier this month that students have dropped their plan to go abroad for studies due to the Coronavirus pandemic will get another chance to aim at their target. He ensured that the candidates would get a fresh chance to apply for the JEE Mains 2020 exam for which a new form had been released.
This also implies that the application process to these two examinations have ended. The candidates were provided several windows to edit the form and to choose the exam city center. A re-application window was also provided for JEE Mains. The last edit which was made by the candidates will be deemed final.
Nearly 16 lakh students will be appearing for NEET this year from 6,000 exam centers across the country. So far, 9.21 lakh candidates have applied for JEE Mains but after the opening of the re-application window, it is expected that at least 10,000 more candidates will have applied for the exam.
The result of both the examination are expected to be declared within a month. Since JEE Advanced is scheduled to be held on August 23and the selected candidates from JEE Main will appear for the Advanced Examination, the result for the Mains exam will be announced early so as to give enough time to students for the preparation of the next-level exam. The IIT-Delhi has proposed to announce the results of JEE Advanced within a week.
