In the wake of pandemic, JEE Advanced 2020 or IIT JEE exam dates have been postponed. The examination for admission to various IITs would now be conducted on September 27, 2020 instead of the earlier proposed date of September 23, 2020. Students can check the revised schedule at jeeadv.ac.in. The examination would be a computer-based test and would be conducted in two slots – morning and afternoon for B.Tech and B.Arch courses respectively. Indian Institute of Technology, IIT Delhi would be conducting the JEE Advanced 2020 this year.
As per the schedule provided, the seat allocation process is likely to be completed by November 9, 2020. This year, due to delays caused by the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, the process of admissions to IITs has been delayed. The classes in IITs are expected to begin after the seat allocation process is complete. Whether the classes would be online or offline is still not clear.
The students who qualify the JEE Main 2020 examination would be eligible to appear for the IIT JEE entrance examination. This year, due to many board examinations getting cancelled, the criteria for minimum qualifying marks in Class 12 has been relaxed. Students are required to only be qualified as ‘passed’ in their Class 12 or equivalent examination.
