The IIT entrance exam – JEE Advanced – has been postponed due to the COVID-19. The revised dates are not yet announced. The JEE Advanced 2021 was scheduled to be held on June 3. The entrance exam is also postponed because the JEE Main exams have not been held. This year, four sessions of JEE Main were to be held of which only two have been conducted.
This year, the number of attempts were doubled for JEE Main as relaxation for students because of COVID-19. The second wave of pandemics, however, has put the exams on hold. Even though two sessions of JEE Main have been held, the remaining two sessions which were scheduled to be held in April and May, respectively were postponed till further notice.
While there is no final announcement for the JEE Main exam dates, reports suggest that it will be held in June or August. The JEE Advanced dates depend on JEE Main as only those who get a rank in top 2.5 lakh of JEE Main are shortlisted to appear for JEE Advanced.
