If you are worried about not clearing the JEE Main exam conducted on February 23, 24, 25 and 26, then here is some good news for you! Given the present pandemic situation that we are going through, NTA has revised how the exam is conducted and how it is evaluated. In this article, we will be discussing all the revisions made to the JEE Main 2021.
Some Important Pointers About JEE Main 2021
Revision in the Number of Attempts
If you could not perform in the first session of the JEE Main exam that was conducted between 23 – 26 Feb 2021, you still get three more chances to improve your scores. The National Testing Agency (NTA) announced that it would hold subsequent sessions in March, April and finally, in May 2021. The next rounds’ application will only open after the results of the previously taken sessions are announced. The exam’s final result will only be announced after the May session, and NTA will consider the best of the four scores for candidates who appear for the exam more than once.
Change in the Question Paper
Keeping in mind the reduction in the syllabus of various boards due to lockdown, NTA has decided that the question paper will contain 90 questions, in which the candidate will have to attempt a total of 75 questions. There would be two sections in each subject; one section will comprise only MCQs, while the second section will require students to fill in a numerical value. The exam would be a computer-based test only. Candidates could go through the February session JEE Main 2021 Question Paper With Solution that is available online to get accustomed to the new question paper pattern.
The exam will be held in 13 different languages for the first time
This decision of conducting the examination in 13 different languages was rolled out after NTA’s emphasis on linguistic diversity. The option to write the exam in either Hindi, English and Urdu will be available in all the states. However, other regional languages such as Assamese, Gujarati, Bengali, Marathi, Kannada, Malayalam, Odia, Punjabi, Telugu and Tamil would be available in their respective States only.
These were some of the important revisions made to the JEE Main 2021 exam. There are still three more attempts left to improve your scores. Start preparing for the next session that will be conducted in March if you are unsure about clearing the exam in the February session. Many JEE toppers have repeatedly spoken about the importance of practising the JEE Main Previous Year Question Papers. Solving the previous year’s question papers teaches you effective time management and boosts your confidence significantly. Hence, you must go through the previous year’s question papers before attempting the next sessions held in March, April, and May. All the Best!
