Students getting ready to appear for Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main exam may note
that examination dates have been changed by the National Testing Agency (NTA). The exam
that was earlier scheduled to be held from April 3 to 9, will now be held on April 5, 7, 9 and
While the application forms have also been released, the last date to apply is March 7. Those
looking to apply may do so at official websites jeemain.nta.nic.in and nta.ac.in. Candidates
may note that email address for the JEE Main applications has been changed. While
previously, the Website was jeemain.nic.in, it is now jeemain.nta.nic.in.
Those who attempted in January may apply again for improvement. It will not be considered
as a second attempt as the exam will be held in the same year. Only the higher marks of the
two exams in January and April will be considered. NTA will come out with the list of the
final rank along with the JEE Main April examination results, which will also include
January and February candidates. In January, close to 11 lakh candidates applied. Of the 9
lakh applications, most were only for B.Tech programmes.
However, if a candidate has already appeared for JEE 2019, appearing for either of the JEE
2020 exams will be counted as his or her second attempt.
