As previously assured by Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal, Education Minister of India, the worries of candidates are now addressed. Those candidates who are appearing for both JEE Main 2020 and UPSC NDA (I) 2020, now have the option to use the NTA JEE Main Correction Facility to inform NTA about their candidature for NDA (I) 2020 exam. This correction window is open only till 31st July 2020.
The date for the UPSC NDA Exam has been set for 6th September 2020. And those candidates who have applied for both JEE Main 2020 and NDA 2020 might be unable to attend both exams as the dates for both could clash. JEE Main 2020 was recently postponed to be conducted from 1st to 6th September 2020.
Thus, to benefit the candidates, NTA has re-opened the correction facility for JEE Main 2020. Candidates of NDA 2020 exam can update “YES” in their Online JEE Main Application Form in order to mention if they are appearing for UPSC NDA (I) Exam. This must be done until the correction window is open, as this option is provided for the second time to JEE Main candidates.
Once the candidates have updated this option, NTA will ensure that the JEE Main exam slot & dates allotted to candidates does not fall on 6th September 2020.
Previously, the facility was provided in the extended correction window from 15th July to 20th July. But many aspiring candidates were unable to utilise this option and were worried about their exam dates clashing. Hence, the window is now reopened for students until 31st July 2020.
As previously notified, no request for change will be accepted by NTA via any other means other than JEE Main Correction Facility. And no requests will be entertained once the correction facility has been closed. It is advised that students make all necessary changes before the release of JEE Main Admit Cards. Also, NIT admissions will no longer require a minimum percentage of 75% in 12th boards, as announced by Mr Ramesh Pokhriyal.
