JEE Advanced 2021 HIGHLIGHTS: The IIT entrance exam – JEE Advanced will be held on July 3, the Minister of Education Ramesh Pokhriyal announced through a live interaction today. The exam has been deferred as a consequence of the postponement of the JEE Main exams.
Just like last year, this year too the board exam criterion has been relaxed. Apart from clearing JEE Main, students also have to secure at least 75 per cent marks in the class 12 exams to be eligible. This criterion was relaxed last year and this year as well, the minister announced. Students, however, will have to pass the board exams.
As per the rule, students have to clear JEE Main every year to be eligible for the Advanced exam of the subsequent year but due to the pandemic, students who cleared JEE Main 2020 but did not appear for JEE Advanced 2020 will also be allowed to appear for Advanced 2021. This is a one-time option.
