- IIT Delhi has increased the number of exam cities for JEE Advanced to 212 from 171, adding 16 new centres in India.
- As per the previous notification, JEE Advanced will not be held in foreign exam centres this year.
- Joint Admission Board (JAB) has also removed the criteria of top 20 percentile in boards, for admission to Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). Candidates with a 12th passing certificate will be eligible for admission.

Conducting JEE Advanced could be a hassle as candidates qualifying JEE Main usually have to travel to a different exam centre city to take JEE Advanced. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, public transport options are limited and pose a huge safety risk. It is questionable whether the central government will assist students for this purpose.
