New Delhi, April 18, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
The National Testing Agency (NTA) has postponed the April session of the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main scheduled from April 27 to 30.

The decision has been taken in wake of rise in COVID-19 cases.

NTA has informed those concerned that the revised dates for the JEE Main 2021 April session will be announced later on and at least 15 days prior to the examination.

“Looking at the present situation of the COVID-19 pandemic and also taking into account the safety and well-being of the candidates and examination functionaries, it has been decided to postpone the JEE Main 2021 April session,” reads the official notification.

It is pertinent to mention here that this year, NTA is organizing JEE Main in four sessions. Two of these sessions have already been completed in February and March. The number of candidates who have appeared in February session is 6,20,978 and in March is 5,56,248, as per the data shared by NTA.

“In the meantime, candidates can practice chapter-wise tests on the NTA Abhyas App from the comfort of their homes,” the official statement added.

Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ took to Twitter and said, “Given the current COVID-19 situation, I have advised NTA to postpone the JEE (Main) – 2021 April Session. I would like to reiterate that the safety of our students and their academic career are Education Ministry’s and my prime concerns right now”.

This comes after several JEE Main candidates requested to postpone the entrance exam due to rising COVID-19 cases and the curbs imposed across the states by using #postponejeemain2021.

The JEE Main candidates have been asked to visit the official websites of NTA www.nta.ac.in and jeemain.nta.nic.in for the latest updates.
