It is to be noted that JEE Main 2020 is being conducted in several shifts in a span of 6 days i.e. 1st to 6th September. Many students have also reported that there was no social distancing at the exam centres even after COVID-19 safety protocols were released by NTA.
Due to this, many students have skipped the JEE Main on Day 1 and Day 2. Check State-wise statistics
