What preferences should candidates provide in this situation?

It is understandable that a lot of students who were staying out of hometown have moved into their homes soon after the COVID-19 cases started growing. There could be multiple cases over what preference a candidate would have provided initially while filling JEE Main 2020 Application Form. Currently, these are the best suggestions to candidates who want to change exam city preference-

  • Choose the same city you are currently residing in, as your first preference as authorities might seal city borders.
  • If providing a second preference, do not choose a city out of state borders.
  • States are suggesting an extended lockdown and sealing borders, so make sure to choose a city only under the state borders.
  • You may choose public transport such as Railways as Indian Railways has assured proper sanitization and limited allotment of berths.
  • If urgent, write/request to the nodal officer of your current district to allow you to leave for hometown using personal transport.

Candidates are advised to keep checking the official website of JEE Main 2020 – jeemain.nta.nic.in – for important updates on the examination.
