The live interactive session/webinar with Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’, scheduled for addressing queries of students, has been extended to 10th December 2020. Dr Pokhriyal tweeted that this will help address “most of the concerns” of various JEE Main 2021 aspirants as well as those worried about exam dates for CBSE Boards.
There are concerns regarding delays in the academic year due to COVID-19 pandemic and absence of notification on reduction in JEE Main 2021 syllabus for students. However, CBSE had reduced the syllabus for class 10th and 12th by 30% in the month of August 2020.

Although, a statement from Dr Pokhriyal has suggested that NTA will soon come up with a revised syllabus for competitive exams such as – JEE Main & NEET 2021. However, it might take some time as consultations are ongoing with multiple educational boards and state education boards.
How To Raise Your Queries?
Students who have queries can tweet to Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal on his Twitter or post on his Facebook account. They will have to use the hashtag #EducationMinisterGoesLive. As the date for the webinar is extended to 10th December, students cannot expect the commencement of JEE Main 2021 Registrations any earlier.
If going by the usual schedule, CBSE releases dates for board exams around the month of December. Exams are conducted in February and March with a suitable gap for JEE Main aspirants, so the dates don’t clash. However, there are no dates released for any of the two. Moreover, schools have been shut down amid the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown for almost 8 months now. Students have lost classroom education which might have resulted in poor overall learning.
