Exam cities allocated to unpaid registered candidates
As per the press release, there are 5320 candidates who have not paid their fees and they may or may not be allowed to attempt JEE Advanced. However, out of these 5320 candidates, over 62% have also been allocated one of the top three examination city choices.
Out of the total 1,60,831 registered candidates, only 991 candidates have been allocated centers out of their preferred eight choices. These candidates are the ones who have not deposited the fee at the time of the registration and are assumed will not take part in the examination.
One of the reasons why some candidates have been allocated exam cities beyond their top three choices is due to shortage of nodes in some regions. However, most of the candidates have been given one of their top three preferences.
Process of exam city allocation
To make the JEE Advanced exam city allocation process fair, the authorities have used an advanced algorithm, to achieve the most efficient and random distribution. This year, due to COVID-19, the number of exam cities has been increased to 222 and the total number of examination centers will be around 1000.
JEE Advanced 2020 will be conducted on September 27th IIT Delhi. Total 1,60,831 candidates have registered for the examination after qualifying JEE Main 2020. IIT Delhi Alumni Association has informed that the transportation facility via Eduride portal will be available for the JEE Advanced candidates also.
