The students preparing to appear for JEE Advanced 2021 are mentioning a relationship with the exam. This comes after Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank declared the eligibility criteria for admission to IITs and the date of JEE Advanced. The statement will be made by the Education Minister on January 7 at 6 pm.
JEE Advanced 2021 will give those who have qualified JEE Mains last year, but could not appear for the second exam due to a COVID-19 epidemic. The National Testing Agency (NTA) has permitted successive BTech students to appear directly for JEE Advanced 2021, as a one-time exception.
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 some relaxation. 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.
Currently, scores of candidates preparing to get admission in undergraduate colleges through JEE 2021 entrance examinations are requesting Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, Minister of Education to deduct the JEE 2021 syllabus or make several attempts for JEE Advanced 2021. Candidates are also informing the Minister of Education to scrap 75 percent of eligibility criteria for JEE Mains.
According to the JEE Main 2021 eligibility criteria, students should score at least 75 percent marks in the 12th board examination, or be in the top 20 percent in class 12 / eligible for admission to the qualifying examination conducted by the respective boards.
