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.

JEE Main 2020: Rise in Number of Female Aspirants for April Session

JEE Main 2020 is all set to be conducted from April 05 to April 11 in online mode. JEE Main Registration for April session opened till March 12, 2020 and the numbers are slightly surprising. The number of applicants has dipped to 9.65 lakhs as compared to 11.5 lakhs last year. However, there is a positive rise in number of female applicants in JEE Mains this year.

Last year JEE Main saw 10.4 Lakh candidates appear in the exam. Only 24% among these candidates were female. The dip in number of overall registrations can be attributed to the fact that exam will be conducted twice this year and many aspirants are still in the final phase of preparation. Also the overlapping between JEE Main and Class 12 Board Practical exams is another decisive factor.

But the rise in number of female applicants is a positive reaction for the Government and officials.
