He told students that there is enough time for JEE Advanced preparations. As COVID-19 crisis is still ongoing and schools have not re-opened completely, 75% eligibility criteria is being scrapped. IIT Kharagpur will be conducting the exam this year.

Who Can Directly Apply For JEE Advanced 2021?

As per the older rules, candidates who wish to take admissions in NITs or IITs or other JEE Main Participating colleges must have scored 75% or higher in their 12th board exams. This is also called the top 20 percentile criteria.

In addition to this, the students who were unable to attend JEE Advanced previous year (2020) due to COVID-19 restrictions, are directly eligible for JEE Advanced 2021. They will not be required to attempt and qualify JEE Main 2021 again.

When will JEE Advanced 2021 Application Form Open?

With this recent announcement, JEE Advanced official website – jeeadv.ac.in – is now being rebuilt for the 2021 session. The information brochure for JEE Advanced and other exam dates are expected to be available soon.

The registration process will undergo some or other changes as few students might be asked to provide specific reasons over why they were unable to attend JEE Advanced 2020. Consequently, it is possible that the application window for JEE Advanced 2021 might open soon after the JEE Main Results of May session. This would be tentatively around mid-June 2021.
