According to the report, “The NTA officials have refused to comment anything on the tentative JEE Main exam dates 2021, however, it has been indicated that both the upcoming sessions will be conducted between a gap of 20 to 25 days.”

Various other sources and reports suggest that the NTA is at present reviewing the pandemic situation. Experts opine that the JEE Main 2021 upcoming sessions may be conducted in the third week of July and the second week of August. However, the exact JEE Main 2021 exam dates will be known when any official notification is released by the authorities.

The authorities will release the JEE Main exam dates 2021 on the official website - jeemain.nta.nic.in. As per the JEE Main 2021 May session postponement notice, candidates will be informed about the new exam dates at least 15 days before the examination.

This year, the NTA decided to conduct JEE Main 2021 in four sessions due to the pandemic situation; four sessions being February, March, April, and May. Of these, February and March sessions were successfully conducted as per schedule and April and May sessions were postponed.

Due to the postponement of JEE Main 2021 April and May sessions, IIT Kharagpur also postponed JEE Advanced 2021 exam which was scheduled to be held on July 3. This also shows that the remaining sessions of JEE Main 2021 will not be conducted before July, the report added.

It is likely that the JEE Main exam dates 2021 will be announced after the CBSE board exam evaluation criteria is submitted on June 17.

JEE Main is a national-level entrance examination conducted as a computer-based exam for admission to BE/ BTech, BArch, and BPlanning courses offered by NITs, IIITs, other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTI), Institutions funded by participating State Governments, and other institutions.
