Coronavirus (COVID-19) has forced a large number of students to reevaluate their choices of studying abroad in Europe or the USA. With a large number of representations received from students, NTA has officially announced that the Online JEE Main Application Form will be available for students on the official website – jeemain.nta.nic.in – from 19th May 2020 to 24th May 2020.
As per the official notification, Indian students who were scheduled to join colleges abroad had requested NTA with the proposal, as they were now keen to pursue studies within India due to the changed circumstances arising from COVID-19. Thus, they requested to appear for JEE Main 2020, and NTA accepted by giving one last opportunity to fill the JEE Main Application Form.
As in the previous windows, the Application Form window will be closed at 5 PM on 24th May 2020, with the final window to pay the JEE Main Application Fee being 11:50 PM. The payment can be made using Credit/Debit Card, Net Banking, UPI and PayTM.
The important point to note here is that the JEE Main Application Form is re-opened for each and every student who might have been unable to submit their application fee or might have been unable to complete the application process due to any reason.

As previously speculated by multiple sources, JEE Main Form Correction Facility will also be re-opened for all students, along with the scope of changing exam city preference. The Form Correction Facility will be open from 25th May to 31st May 2020. This facility shall be open for all the candidates, along with the latest applications received from candidates during 19th to 24th May.
The correction facility will be open for the 4th time now considering the ongoing pandemic of COVID-19 which has forced students to move to their hometowns. NTA has assured yet again that the authorities shall make complete efforts to allot exam city as per the preference provided but the same is subject to the availability of capacity in the desired city. It might also be possible that due to administrative reasons, a different city is allotted to the candidates. NTA’s decision will be final regarding this allotment.
Candidates will be able to submit corrections by 5 PM on 31st May 2020 and the final window for submission of the fee shall be 11:50 PM. Do note that additional fee shall be required only for corrections which have a different application fee. The fee can be paid through credit/debit card, net banking, UPI and PayTM.
