In the view of Corona pandemic, Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ said students whose plans to study abroad have been affected due to COVID-19 will get a fresh chance to apply for JEE-Mains.
“In view of representations received from various Indian students who were scheduled to join colleges abroad but are now keen to pursue their studies in India due to changed circumstances arising out of COVID-19, the National Testing Agency (NTA) has decided to give an opportunity,” HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank” said.
The application window for Joint Entrance Exam (JEE-Mains), which opened today, will have to be completed by May 24, 2020.
The NTA director Vinnet Joshi said “students who were not able to complete their application form due to other reasons can also make use of this opportunity”.
The exam will be held across the country from July 18-23, 2020.
📢Students who dropped the idea to study abroad, here is your chance to pursue your studies in India.
