Students across the country have been citing the sudden increase in the COVID-19 cases as reason for their demanding the postponement of JEE Main 2021. Lockdown in several states due to the spike in cases has also been a major concern for many students.
Although the National Testing Agency (NTA), which conducts the exam, has not given any indication that it is even considering a postponement of JEE Main 2021 exam, the announcements CBSE Class 10 exam cancelled and CBSE Class 12 postponed by the education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ has given applicants hope.
