The Director of Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi has mentioned that there might be a slight delay in the exam dates of JEE Mains 2021. Due to the ongoing pandemic and disruption of life, the JEE Main 2021 maybe conducted a month later.
He added "This is difficult to predict but looking at things, I feel it may be pushed back by a month. The reason is that JEE Main 2020 admissions will be after the exam in September and they may take a month or so. There may not be enough time to plan for another exam on this level so immediately. So, I think it may be delayed by a month or so".
JEE mains are conducted in 233 test cities and 9 test cities abroad. It is a computer-based test for admissions into B.Tech, B.Arch, and B.Plan courses. The entrance test is also a screening test for JEE Advance for admissions in 23 IIT's.
