NEW DELHI: IIT Delhi director Ramgopal Rao said that students can expect a slight delay in the exam dates of JEE Main January 2021. Attributing the cause to the COVID pandemic this year and subsequent disruption of life in general, he said that JEE Main 2021 may be conducted a month later.

Answering to a question in a chat with Careers360 on whether JEE Main 2021 January exam will be held as scheduled, Rao said,” This is difficult to predict but looking at things, I feel it may be pushed back by a month. The reason is that JEE Main 2020 admissions will be after the exam in September and they may take a month or so. There may not be enough time to plan for another exam on this level so immediately. So, I think it may be delayed by a month or so.”

JEE Main is held in 233 test cities of India and 9 test cities abroad. It is a computer based test held in multiple sessions for admissions to B.Tech, B.Arch and B.Plan courses as well as intergrated engineering courses in the NITs, IIITs, GFTIs and many states as well. The entrance exam is also a screening test for JEE Advanced which is held for admissions to the 23 IITs.
