JEE Main 2020: 2.23 Lakh Students Did Not Appear for September 2020 Session

Last updated on September 10th, 2020 at 12:20 pm

low attendance in jee main 2020

The central government and education ministry has been facing backlash since they decided not to postpone the entrance exams. Amid the floods, with the already surging COVID-19 pandemic, the students had to travel to their exam centres thousands of kilometers away. Due to this, many exam centres reported low attendance with merely 50% students taking the JEE Main 2020.

However, Education Minister, Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal opened up on twitter to reveal the official statistics of the attendance. He also clarified what could be the reason that many students did not appear for the second attempt of JEE Main.


According to Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’, 6.35 lakh students appeared for JEE Main 2020 out of total 8.58 lakh applicants. This means 2.23 lakh or around 25% students did not appear for the exam amid COVID-19 pandemic, or among other calamities such as floods in Nagpur.

He also thanked the state governments and central government for providing assistance in conducting the JEE Main entrance with all COVID-19 Safety Protocols. Dr Pokhriyal also mentioned, “Students may have done well in January exams. Hence, they might not have felt the need to sit for JEE Main again.”


The attendance statistics previously revealed a low percentage of students appearing on Day 1 of JEE Main 2020, but the numbers grew with 80% attendance from Day 2 to Day 6. B.Arch and B.Planning Papers of JEE Main 2020 were scheduled on Day 1 (1st September), which usually have a low number of registrations.

For January 2020 session statistics, over 11 lakh candidates registered for JEE Main and more than 10 lakh students appeared for the exam.

With a low number of candidates appearing for exam in this session, it is possible that JEE Main Cut Off is likely to decrease. This will also affect the college cut offs that are decided by JoSAA during JoSAA Counselling for NITs, IIITs and GFTIs.
