After the recent postponement of JEE Mains April and May sessions, now JEE Advanced is also expected to get postponed. The examination is scheduled to be conducted on July 3, 2021, in two shifts — 9.00 AM to 12.00 PM and 2.30 PM to 5.30 PM.
“If JEE Advanced is to be conducted as per schedule, then ideally one session of JEE Main was to be conducted in May and the second session in June. However, now that the JEE Main exams have been postponed, it is very likely that the exam date for the Advanced exam will also have to be pushed forward,” said BS Murty, director, IIT Hyderabad, which is the South zone co-ordinating institute for JEE (Advanced) 2021, reports Indian Express.
However, official notification is awaited for the same.
