Students of 11 States Move To SC Demanding JEE Main Postponement Amid COVID-19

In the wake of COVID-19 pandemic, around 11 students of 11 States have petitioned at the Supreme Court for rescheduling JEE Main 2020 beyond September. There has been constant resistance from students on Twitter and other social media platforms over conducting JEE Main and NEET entrance exams amid COVID-19. Meanwhile, there has been no response from the government over this issue.

Anubha Sahai, Chief of Parents’ Association spoke on the issue. “Students across India want deferment of JEE and NEET 2020 because of COVID-19 cases growing rapidly. 11 students from 11 different states have petitioned at the Supreme Court to provide some relief. We hope that the apex court will give justice to these students,” she said.

Fresh Opportunity To Fill Exam Forms

The petition was filed by Advocate Alakh Alok Srivastava, who is representing these 11 students. As per the petition, students want the ‘exams should be conducted only after normalcy is re-established in India post the COVID-19 crisis’. They also demand that the number of test centres must be increased and at least one exam centre must be established in all the districts of the country. Along with this, the petition also says that aspirants of JEE Main and NEET must get the opportunity to fill fresh application forms and choose exam centres once again.

Many students are providing reasons over the risks of conducting entrance exams at such huge levels. Students are citing reasons for KCET, where almost 60 asymptomatic students were found COVID-19 positive. Students are posting tweets with the hashtag #SaveJEE_NEETstudentsPM

The basis for postponement of JEE Main 2020 was that many other exams have already been cancelled or postponed indefinitely. CLAT 2020 has been postponed indefinitely, and major board exams have been cancelled amid COVID-19. This can be taken as valid grounds for cancellation of JEE Main and NEET exams too.

JEE Advanced Will Not Be Conducted In Foreign Countries Amid COVID-19

COVID-19 pandemic is not going to stop anytime soon. The daily cases are growing with each successive day and with lockdown in place, the travel is also restricted in many areas. As per the Ministry of Home Affairs ‘Unlock 3.0’ guidelines, foreign travel is still at halt. There are certain criteria for travel but issuance of a visa is still restricted and various countries have imposed travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to this, Joint Entrance Exam (Advanced) or JEE Advanced 2020, will not be held in foreign countries.

Preferred Exam City of India only

As per the official update posted on the official website, those candidates who are eligible for JEE Advanced 2020 can select their preferred exam centres in India when the JEE Advanced Application Forms are open. Only the top 2.5 lac candidates of JEE Main are qualified for JEE Advanced. Recently, the eligibility criteria for JEE Advanced, or say, for admissions to IITs was changed amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The top 20 percentile rule or the minimum aggregate of 75% in 12th boards was scrapped as eligibility criterion. This change was made by the Joint Admission Board (JAB) due to partial cancellation of 12th boards.

Now, all those who have a passing certificate in 12th boards will be considered for admissions to the IITs.

In addition to this, IIT Delhi, the conducting authority of JEE Advanced has ensured that social distancing at exam centres will be maintained. Arrangements will be made at entry and exit points and all throughout exam centres to ensure that social distancing is not broken by candidates. Masks and hand sanitizer will be allowed inside the exam halls.

Dates For NTA JEE Main 2020 and UPSC NDA (I) 2020 Clashing, HRD Minister Clarifies

JEE Main 2020 was rescheduled for the second time by NTA recently. The exam is proposed to be conducted from 1st to 6th September 2020. But many students are struggling as UPSC has set the date for NDA (I) 2020 as 6th September. To ensure that the dates for NTA JEE Main 2020 and UPSC NDA 2020 do not clash for candidates, NTA provided the option in JEE Main Form Correction Window, to let candidates update if they are appearing for NDA 2020. This window was recently closed on 20th July 2020. Now, many students who have not used this option are worried if their dates could clash.

As a quick response, HRD Minister, Mr Ramesh Pokhriyal, addressed this difficulty. He tweeted to aspirants that NTA will make sure that the dates do not clash for students appearing in both exams.

Could This Mean Further Postponement?

This does not mean that dates might be postponed any further. More than 9 lakh students have applied for JEE Main 2020 which is much higher than applicants of NDA exam. The second session of JEE Main 2020 has already been postponed twice giving additional time for students to prepare for the exam.

However, clashing of dates could mean a slight change in schedule of either of the two. It is more likely that NDA 2020 dates might get shifted further due to less participation in comparison to JEE Main 2020. Or, NTA might also open the JEE Main correction window again for students to update their participation in NDA 2020.

NTA has made several changes such as doubling the number of exam centers in order to ensure social distancing. Along with this, NTA also decided to release the JEE Main 2020 Results within 5 days so that the academic calendar is not delayed too further.

NTA’s National Test Abhyas App Delivers 30 Lakh Free Mock Tests

A few months after the COVID-19 halted the second session of JEE Main 2020, NTA launched their newly developed android application ‘National Test Abhyas’ for free online mock tests of JEE Main 2020 and NEET (UG) 2020. In a new record, the National Test Abhyas has reached a new high of 30 lakh sessions taken by JEE Main and NEET aspirants, in just 55 days.

NTA’s application was launched since there was no more possibility of running NTA’s Test Practice Centres (TPCs) for JEE Main aspirants amid the country-wide lockdown, imposed to curb the spread of COVID-19. The Ministry of Human Resource Development has also asked schools and colleges to opt new ideas for assessment such as this, in case the lockdown on schools and colleges is extended in future. He appreciated this milestone in a tweet.

Better Performance by App against TPCs

As per a detailed report, 7.67 lakh JEE aspirants have taken the JEE Main Mock Tests on the National Test Abhyas App. 33.9 lakh hours have been spent by test takers on the NTA’s application with an average of 7 JEE Main tests taken by each candidate.

Compared to the NTAs Test Practice Centres, the performance of National Test Abhyas has been outstanding within less than 10% of the time period. Only 5.4 lakh study hours were spent by students in 558 days at test practice centres set up by NTA since September 2018. This could be due to the registration process and other requirements which are not necessarily required for National Test Abhyas.

NTA is also looking for the opportunity to introduce other online mock tests on this application as the demand is rising. Meanwhile, MHRD is also looking for allowing the schools to utilise this platform as a replacement for classroom learning.

Currently, NTA JEE Main 2020 has been postponed by over 5 months and is scheduled to be conducted from 1st to 6th September 2020. Keep checking our website JEEMains.in for the latest updates on JEE Main and JEE Advanced 2020!

JEE Main January 2021 Might Be Delayed, Says IIT Delhi Director

Mr Ramgopal Rao, Director of IIT Delhi, has said in an interview that the dates of JEE Main January 2021 could be delayed due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic. The number of cases are growing continuously with the daily cases reaching a new high of 34,000 cases. He said that there could be a month or more delay in the JEE Main 2021 January session.

The question was asked to the Director on whether JEE Main 2021 could be conducted on time. On which he replied that, “It is difficult to predict anything as of now, but I feel the exam dates might be delayed by a month. This is because the JEE Main 2020 admissions might take a month or so after the exams are conducted in September this year. Considering this delay, it is not possible to plan and conduct another exam at national level with more than 10 lakh applicants, within this time gap.”

Unavailability of Classroom Education

Usually the JEE Main Application Forms are started during the month of September for the January 2020 session. This is to ensure all the formalities before the exam are completed within the stipulated time period. There are various errors that students make during registrations which have to be corrected. Moreover, due to the pandemic, there is very little opportunity for classroom education in the coming few months. This has hampered the learning process of students which cannot ever be equivalent to the quality of education imparted online. However, NTA has introduced their own JEE Main Mock Tests Application for continuous learning of students.

There has been no announcement of reduction of syllabus in JEE Main or JEE Advanced as of yet. However, CBSE has announced a revised syllabus with 30% reduction in all the subjects of class 12th. Many are expecting NTA or JEE Advanced authority, Joint Admission Board (JAB) to announce a reduction in the syllabus.

JEE Main 2020 April session is delayed by over 5 months and is set to be conducted by NTA from 1st to 6th September. Soon after, IIT Delhi will conduct JEE Advanced 2020 on 27th September 2020. The probability of conducting the exams of these dates is very low as the pandemic situation is still not under control by the government.

JEE Main Exam Day Instructions and Guidelines: Documents to Carry

Keeping in mind the safety for the candidates in this pandemic of COVID – 19, Union HRD (Human Resource Development) Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal announced that the JEE Main exam will now be held between 1st – 6th September 2020.

JEE Main is a gateway for admission to India’s eminent engineering colleges like IITs, GFTIs, NIT, Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology, Birla Institute of Technology, etc. according to all India rank.

JEE Main is also the qualifying exam to appear for JEE Advanced which is conducted for admission to IITs in India. JEE Main is conducted twice a year, once in January and again in April but due to the pandemic of COVID-19, it got delayed.

SRMJEEE 2020 Cancelled Amid COVID-19, 12th Results and JEE Main Scores To Be Considered

A lot of exams are being cancelled by a lot of exams conducting authorities amid the COVID-19 pandemic. CBSE and ICSE have cancelled the remaining 10th and 12th boards to safeguard students amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, the board is soon announcing the results for both the exams. Taking this as a precedent towards the safety of students, SRMJEEE 2020 has also been cancelled by SRM Institute of Science and Technology (SMRIST). The notification on the official website of SRMJEEE 2020 says that the admissions will now be conducted on the basis of 12th results, JEE Main Scores and SAT Scores (if available).

JEE Main Cut off for GFTIs – Seat Matrix

JoSAA provides seat matrices for all the IITs, IIITs, NITs and GFTIs. Let us see the seat matrix for GFTIs based on different categories.

S.No. Categories Number of seats
01 Open 2150
02 Open PwD 73
03 ST 358
04 SC 542
05 ST PwD 13
06 SC PwD 14
07 OBC- NCL 748
08 OBC-NCL PwD 21

These were the top Government Funded Technical Institutes under JEE Mains, any students who want to get admission should have qualified JEE Mains and should come under the cutoff ranks. One thing that the students should have in mind is that the candidate should score at least the minimum rank required for the GFTI. Also, the candidates securing less than JEE Main cutoff 2020 will have fewer chances of admission in GFTI than those who have ranks more than or equivalent to the cutoff for GFTI. Students should know that the eligibility criteria to apply in GFTI is that they must have appeared in JEE Mains and should have qualified the exam. Hope this will help the students.

IITs Might Reduce Syllabus For JEE Advanced 2020 With Changes In Exam Format

This year’s JEE Advanced has been postponed twice similar to the JEE Main 2020. The scores of JEE Main decide whether the student is eligible to attempt the JEE Advanced 2020. In lieu of the COVID-19 pandemic situation, Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) are considering reducing the syllabus for the JEE Advanced 2020 and also making changes in the exam format. The Joint Admission Board (JAB) will hold a meeting for reviewing these proposals. As per the reports, this meeting is going to be held in the next week.

IIT-Delhi is the conducting authority for JEE Advanced 2020. V Ramgopal Rao, the Director of IIT-D has confirmed that a review meeting is scheduled for the coming week. The proposals will be suggested for exam format, JEE Advanced Exam Syllabus, and various social distancing norms to be followed amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Once JAB agrees, the decisions will be made. All the proposals are for JEE Advanced 2020.

Previously, it was also reported that IITs are considering to remove the eligibility criteria of board exams or top 20 percentile criteria. Since CBSE and ICSE boards have cancelled their board exams, this proposal is more likely to be implemented for JEE Advanced 2020. As per the JEE Advanced 2020 Eligibility, students of class 12th must have scored at least 75% or must be in the top 20 percentile scorers of the board exams.

Why Propose Reduction in Syllabus?

CBSE has reduced the syllabus for their 2021 curriculum. This will be taken as a precedent and NTA might come forward with a reduction in the syllabus for JEE Main 2020 and NEET 2020 as well. Both the exams have syllabus based on the class 11th and 12th syllabus. However, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it is getting impossible for students to opt for classroom education due to the risk of infection. Moreover, the JEE Main Exam Syllabus is vaster than the CBSE curriculum even after a similar reduction. In order to cover major topics, students have to refer to separate study material for beating the competitive environment of JEE Main.

In such a case, it is better to reduce the curriculum along with changes in the exam pattern to make it convenient for the students to prepare for the exam with much ease. With the current scenario of online learning, it is getting difficult to convey the right kind of learning with proper response from the students. This is already hampering the quality of education.

JEE Main January 2021 is also likely to get postponed due to the shift in the academic calendar. Although, there is no official announcement from NTA yet. Currently, their main focus is on conducting JEE Main 2020 successfully.
