While students are continuously requesting to cancel or postpone the JEE Main 2020, the government seems unaffected. However, CBSE and ICSE cancelled their board exams due to the rising tension of parents and students amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, NTA or Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has not issued any statement regarding the JEE Main 2020 or NEET (UG) 2020. This could mean that the JEE Main Admit Card will be released soon. Or maybe even in the first week of July 2020. The best explanation for this could be the removal of image correction window at the official website of JEE Main (see image below). This could mean that NTA is not accepting any other changes that could reflect in your admit card.
Expected Date for JEE Main Admit Card
In a previous notice issued by NTA, it was stated that the admit cards for JEE Main shall be issued 15 days prior to the examination. Considering the exam is scheduled from 18th to 23rd July, the admit cards can be issued much likely around 3rd July 2020. Thus, candidates and parents are advised to keep themselves posted by visiting the official website of JEE Main 2020 – jeemain.nta.nic.in. Make sure all the prerequisites are ready such as Registration Number, Date of Birth, Password for Login Portal. Candidates must also have access to their registered email address and mobile number in case of any emergencies.
JEE Main Exam Centre Guidelines amid COVID-19
NTA Director, Vineet Joshi, has already assured that all the important precautions will be taken by the authorities at the exam centres. Candidates will be communicated with proper guidelines on social distancing and other measures. Along with this, the new guidelines will also be printed on the JEE Main Admit Card. Both students and parents will be required to follow the guidelines.
Many are still hoping that the second session of JEE Main 2020 will be postponed or cancelled. Unlock 2.0 guidelines have been issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs. According to the guidelines, any large gathering remains prohibited. Schools and colleges are also to remain closed until 31st July 2020. The outcome of any decision has a much bigger impact on the lives of students. Use our comment box below to discuss more on this topic!
