New Delhi, India: The entrance examination for admission to IITs, known as JEE Advanced 2021, will be held on October 3, according to an announcement made by Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan (July 26).
In JEE Main, candidates who achieve a rank among the top 2.5 lakh candidates are considered eligible to compete for admission to IITs. Students who failed to qualify for JEE Advanced 2020 will be able to sit for the exam this year if they meet the eligibility requirements.
The JEE Advanced 2021 examination was originally scheduled to take place on June 3, 2021, but it was postponed due to COVID-19. Meanwhile, it is expected that the results for JEE Main will be announced much earlier than October to give students enough time to prepare for the two exams as well as time to submit an application for Advanced standing.
It is held for admission to various undergraduate Engineering, Science, and Architecture courses at the 23 Indian Institutes of Technology. JEE Advanced is a national level examination (IITs). Candidates for JEE Advanced must be among the top 2.5 lakh successful JEE Main candidates in order to be considered for admission.
Earlier, the JEE Advanced examination, which was scheduled to take place on July 3, 2021, was postponed due to COVID.
