The National Testing Agency will soon announce the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Main 2021 dates. The Engineering entrance exam is conducted twice every year, in January and April. The official notification, mentioning the JEE Mains 2021 complete syllabus, exam pattern, registration process, and other information, will be released on the official website, jeemain.nta.nic.in.
Under normal circumstances, NTA would have started JEE Main registration by now -- last year, registration for the January session was conducted in September -- but the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted the schedule this year.
Demand To Reduce JEE Main 2021 Syllabus
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, during the 57th General Council Meeting of NCERT, suggested that the syllabus for all classes should be reduced to 50% and JEE Main 2021 and NEET exams should be held on the basis of the reduced syllabus.
Earlier, in July, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) decided to reduce the syllabi of Classes 9 to 12 by 30%, to make up for the academic loss during the "Extraordinary Situation" of COVID-19.
CBSE’s move was soon followed by state boards as they announced a reduction of syllabi. Many state boards will conduct Class 10 and 12 board exam in 2020-21 based on reduced syllabi.
The National Testing Agency, or the Education Ministry, has not confirmed any such move to conduct JEE Main and NEET exams based on the reduced syllabus. The agency is yet to announce JEE Main 2021 exam date.
