According to reports, JEE Advanced 2020 and NITs is likely to be held around 12th July 2020. The report also stated the start of the new academic year at IITs and NITs will also be pushed to September 2020.
According to media reports, the JEE Main Exam 2020, which was scheduled to be held at the start of April, has been delayed due to the national lockdown. The JEE Advanced Exam 2020, which screens and selects students for admission to premier technology institutes of the country i.e. IITs and NITs, has also been delayed.
JEE Advanced Organising Chairman Siddharth Pandey said in an interview, NTA is trying to conclude the JEE Main 2020 Exam latest by 20th to 22nd June 2020. This means that engineering aspirants can expect the JEE Main 2020 results to be declared only after 20th June 2020.
Typically, the top 2.25 lakh rank holders of JEE Main 2020 exam are selected to participate in the JEE Advanced 2020 exam through which admissions are granted to IITs and NITs.
With the delay in JEE Main 2020 Result and the subsequent holding of JEE advanced 2020 exam, the academic session 2020-21 is likely to be postponed. Although the new academic calendars have not been issued, looking at the sequence of events, in all likelihood the new academic session will only commence in September 2020 onwards.
