NEW DELHI, JANUARY 22: In the recent hearing, Supreme Court gave interim orders to remove the age barrier on appearing for JEE Advanced 2019 and JEE Main 2019. As per the order, candidates who are 25 years of age or older are eligible to apply for both the exams. However, the final outcome is still awaited so the candidates who will appear for the above mentioned exams shall consider the exams provisionally subject to the final outcome.

The court has also declared that the National Testing Agency (NTA) portal will remain active for one week providing the chance to such candidates to apply for JEE Main and JEE Advanced. With NTA taking over JEE Main from 2019, the age limit was removed as notified in the official brochure released in September.

JEE Main is being conducted twice this year. For January, the exam was conducted from January 8 to 12. The registrations for the April session will start from February 8 and the exam will be conducted between April 6 to 20 by NTA.

Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee will conduct JEE Advanced 2019 on May 19. Registrations will commence tentatively from the first week to the second week of May. JEE Advanced is a gateway for admissions into IITs. Candidates qualifying JEE Main 2019 cutoff will be eligible to apply for JEE Advanced.
