JEE Main 2021 Exam: The Joint Entrance Examination Main (JEE Main) is the first stage to secure a seat in India’s top engineering colleges. The exam is conducted by NTA (National Testing Agency). The JEE Main exam is considered as one of the toughest competitive exams in India. In the year 2021 it will be conducted in multiple sessions (February, March, April and May). A candidate has the option to apply for one Session or more than one Session (February/March /April /May 2021) together and pay exam fee accordingly. In other words, if a candidate wishes to apply only for one Session, he / she has to pay Examination Fee only for that Session during the current application period and will have the opportunity to apply again for the remaining March/ April / May Sessions. The application window will be re-opened briefly immediately after the declaration of the result of February / March/ April Session. Examination for the May session will be the last Examination for the academic year 2021-22. Fees can also be carried forward to another Session of JEE (Main) 2021.
The Examination will be conducted in 331 cities in India. Check out the JEE Main Exam Centers 2021 list here.
The JEE (Main) 2021 will now be conducted in 13 languages including Assamese, Bengali, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu in addition to Hindi, Gujarati and English.
The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE Main) comprises two papers. The Paper1 Iis conducted for admission to Undergraduate Engineering Programs (B.E/B. Tech) and the Paper 2 is conducted for admission to B. Arch and B. Planning courses in the Country.
The question papers will be separate for admission to B.E. / B.Tech., B.Arch, and B.Plan courses. All the exams except the drawing test for architecture will be through computer-based mode only.
Students can appear either of the four or in all sessions of JEE Main 2021 exam. If they write an exam for more than one time, the best score of all attempts of exams will be considered for the ranking. The candidates will thus benefit in the following ways:
1.This will give multiple opportunities to the candidates to improve their scores in the examination if they are not able to give their best in one attempt.
2. In the first attempt, the students will get first-hand experience of taking an examination and will know their mistakes which they can improve while attempting for the next time.
3. This will reduce the chances of dropping a year and droppers would not have to waste a full year.
4. If anyone missed the examination due to reasons beyond control (such as Board examination), then he/she will not have to wait for one full year.
5. A candidate need not appear in all the four Sessions. However, if a candidate appears in more than one Session then his/her best of the 2021 NTA Scores will be considered for preparation of Merit List/ Ranking.
The students must prepare well for all the sessions. As the score is a normalized percentile score, how well you do relative to other candidates, matters more than your raw score. Check out the detailed ranking procedure for the JEE Main exam 2021 here.
