Low Attendance for JEE Main 2020, Check State-wise Statistics

Last updated on September 3rd, 2020 at 04:21 pm

The risk of spread of COVID-19 has forced many students to skip the JEE Main 2020 April/September session. Even though NTA has not released the official statistics yet, the trends at various exam centres show that more than 40% students have skipped the entrance exam in the current session.

Attendance for the April/September 2020 session has been low at almost all exam centres. The numbers are contrary to the claims from the Education Ministry or NTA, who said students want to take the exam as more than 80% of the students have downloaded their JEE Main Admit Cards.

Statistics for Day 1 and Day 2 from various states-

  1. Gujarat – For Day 1, 3020 students were registered for B.Arch and B.Planning Papers. However, 1664 (55%) took the exam, while 45% candidates skipped. The centre’s coordinator for Gujarat said that 25-30% students skip the exam every year, but this year it’s 15% higher.
  2. Odisha – The attendance at Odisha has been better than most. Around 3,600 candidates appeared for the JEE Main exam on Day 1. Total of 38,200 candidates have registered who will be appearing in various shifts from 1st to 6th September.
  3. Assam – Attendance at Assam for JEE Main 2020 was only around 50%. Assam only had 6 exam centres allocated state-wide. As per an NTA official, in Guwahati, only 200 students took the exam out of 600 registered candidates. 12,803 candidates have registered for JEE Main in Assam. The flood situation on top of COVID-19 has made it worse for residents of Assam.
  4. Punjab – Ludhiana, the largest city in Punjab, also had a poor response. The number of attendees were only 178 out of 388 registered candidates. For the January 2020 session, the number was much higher at 1400.
  5. Rajasthan – According to reports from Rajasthan, 1079 students were present (62%) and 667 students were absent (38%) in 1st shift. While for the 2nd shift, 681 were absent (43%) and 897 were present (57%). Overall, 1348 (68%) students skipped the exams in Rajasthan.
  6. West Bengal – The CM of West Bengal, Mamta Banerjee said that 75% students skipped the JEE Main exam, even after all necessary arrangements as per central government guidelines. She said, “Out of 4,652 candidates, only 1,167 could appear for JEE Main.” Mamta Banerjee had been against conducting JEE Main and NEET exams amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
  7. Uttar Pradesh – As per the stats from Lucknow, UP, only 56% could appear for JEE Main amid the fears of COVID-19. Out of 1065 applicants, 597 appeared for the exam on Day 1. Read More

BJP’s Subramanian Swamy has taken the side of students on this issue. He had recently tweeted that Ministry of Education must release the info of how many students attended the JEE Main exam.


The statistics from all other states of the country have been similar with low attendance from students. Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh government have pledged to provide free conveyance to students who are unable to travel to their exam centres. IIT Delhi and IIT Bombay Alumni have also launched EduRide portal to help students reach exam centres.

On the other hand, COVID-19 has taken more than 67,000 lives in India so far. The most deaths have been among the older age groups of 50+. Usually, young individuals are prone to becoming carriers of COVID-19, as they are asymptomatic for quite a long time. This is the major reason, students are skipping various entrance exams this year.

Candidates who appeared at exam centres in Lucknow were from nearby districts such as Unnao, Rae Bareli, Barabanki. They said that many fear the risk of COVID-19 spread during travel. Hence, they decided to skip the exams. Students who attended the exam centres were also concerned on coming, but felt much satisfied due to proper management and following of COVID-19 Safety Protocols at exam centres.

A candidate named Anupriya Gupta said, “I travelled from Hardoi to Lucknow. The exam centre is in the outskirts of the city which is difficult to reach easily. However, outside exam halls there was not a heavy crowd and COVID-19 guidelines were being followed strictly. I was pacified.”

“I was in panic while travelling to the exam centre. I was asked to walk through a sanitization tunnel similar to other candidates. The examiners were wearing PPE Kits after which I was relieved,” said Akshat from Rae Bareli.

Many students were fearing the spread of COVID-19 due to improper management at various exams like KCET and the entrance exam of BHU. The pictures showed heavy crowds with no social distancing outside exam centres. Till now, no such report has come out for NTA’s exam centres for JEE Main 2020.

NTA Likely To Announce New Exam Dates for Flood-Hit Areas in Maharashtra, JEE Advanced 2020 Might Be Postponed

Last updated on September 2nd, 2020 at 11:26 am

The Nagpur Bench of Bombay High Court yesterday decided not to stay the conduct of JEE Main 2020. However, the bench said that students residing in the flood-affected parts of Vidarbha region of Maharashtra, who were unable to take the JEE Main exam, can request NTA for re-examination.

Due to the critical situation of floods, the court had asked Union government, State government, NTA and Collectors of the flood-hit districts, to review this situation and postpone the exam for candidates who could not take the exam.

Undertaking Accepted by NTA

The National Testing Agency accepted an Undertaking before Bombay High Court. It said that many students who were unable to reach the JEE Main Exam Centres due to flood in Maharashtra will be allowed to send their representations.

Hence, affected candidates can file a plea to NTA through their local agency. After the representation is received by NTA, an enquiry will be made to the centre coordinator and district collector and a final decision will be out in 15 days.

The Education Minister of India, Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal, said that further postponement of the entrance exams will disrupt the entire academic year for lakhs of students. Although, he acknowledged that the flood situation in Maharashtra has been disastrous and students would be allowed to take a re-examination.

What about JEE Advanced?

The decision made by NTA poses another question. When will JEE Advanced 2020 be conducted? Will it be postponed further? Many students would send their representations for conducting a re-examination. This could also delay the results of these candidates. On a similar note, JoSAA Counselling could also be delayed.

Another solution to this could be conducting all exam activities for flood-hit areas separately. This way, the regular dates might not get affected.
