JEE Main Admit Card 2020: The admit card for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main has been released. The candidates can download the hall ticket from the website- jeemain.nta.nic.in.
However, despite delaying the JEE Main twice, the coronavirus cases are still rising and parents and students are demanding a further delay. Even as a section of students demands to hold exams worried about the delay in the new session, the case is still in the Supreme Court considering the health of students.
Other exams scheduled to be held in September include the National Defence Academy (NDA) — scheduled to be held on September 6 — have already released their admit cards.
LIVE UPDATES | JEE Main admit card released
For JEE Main, more than 9 lakh candidates have registered in the first attempt. Later, the application window was reopened to allow students who were to go abroad to apply for the same again. Those whose UPSC NDA and JEE Main exams were clashing on the same day, NTA also gave them a chance to intimidate the same so that their exam could be held on a different date.
The exam conducting body had also allowed students several chances to change their exam centre to ensure the least amount of commute.
Experts believe that with delay in JEE Main, the competition is expected to be tougher and cut-offs are likely to be higher than usual and students who could not remain focused might be at a disadvantage. Students who moved to remote areas claim that they are on an unadvantageous spot over others.
