As we can see this year, the schooling as well as the coaching of students get affected due to the lockdown and curfew implemented in the country for a couple of months seeing the existing global pandemic.
Looking at the same and In order to provide the students sufficient attempts to clear the JEE Mains and JEE Advanced exam, the Union Ministry of Education has decided to conduct the JEE Mains and Advanced exam four times in between February to May next year. That means In each month in between February to May next year, the JEE Mains and Advanced exams will be conducted.
The candidates can appear in one or all these four examinations, however, the highest marks in any attempts will be counted. That means the rank of the candidate will be decided based on the highest marks he/she gets in any of these four attempts.
Well, this is the first time in the history of Joint Entrance Examination for Engineering and Architecture candidates that it is conducted continuously for four times in a spree in four continuous months.
The syllabus of the JEE Mains 2021 examination will remain the same as the previous year. That means that even though the CBSE has decreased the syllabus by 30%, JEE Mains still follow the last year syllabus.
The Ministry, however, is considering giving the student the option to attempt 75 out of 90 questions in the examination. That means this year, if the ministry accepts this proposal then the JEE Mains exam will have 90 questions and the students can attempt 75 out of these 90 questions.
Currently, the JEE Mains exam asks 25 questions each from Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, that means a total of 75 questions.
Let see whether this new proposal will be accepted or not.
