JEE Main 2022 exam live updates.

JEE Main 2022 exam will commence from April 16 and will be held on April 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, and 21. Karnataka Class 12 board exams for some subjects are also scheduled for April 16, 18, 19, 20, and 21. Jharkhand board exams 2022 are also scheduled for some subjects on April 16, 18, 19, and 20.

Both parents and students are concerned about the clash and less time gap given to students for preparation of exams. They have requested NTA and union education minister Dharmendra Pradhan to look into the matter and reschedule the dates while also giving 4 attempts which has been reduced to 2 this year.

Meanwhile, Saurabh Kumar, director academics, Vidyamandir Classes said that keeping while there is clarity over JEE Main 2022 dates, the exam is coming in the way of CBSE board exams along with clashing with competitive exams and other board exams. Over a period of one month, students have now all the important exams and their life's decision depends on it, he said. It is a very hard time for students, he said.
