In a bid to restore the confidence of candidates appearing for JEE Main and other national level examinations, Government has distributed 2.7 lakhs computers to the students for JEE Main Test Practice Centers. The move has come in wake of doubts creeping among aspirants concerning CBT mode and MHRD & NTA’s joint effort in allaying any fears among candidates by providing ample platforms for candidates to prepare for the upcoming examination.
It is done in order to facilitate the students who do not have computers or smartphones of their own. National Testing Agency(NTA) has launched 3,404 test practice centres (TPCs) in 662 districts on Sep 16, 2018.
The practice centres enables a candidate to register and take practice computer based test (CBT) for JEE Main and UGC-NET free of cost. Candidates can register for the test practice centers on the official site of NTA , i.e., nta.ac.in using their Google or Facebook Account.
Besides, NTA has also provided the link for online mock test on their own website to facilitate students with access to computer and internet connections to prepare for the examination at their preferred location. Another prominent effort in this direction is to upload the lectures from various IIT Professors for JEE Main 2019 on the official website.
