JEE Main 2021: Candidates Who Apply For Multiple Attempts Can Pick Different City Each Time

While applying for the JEE Main 2021, the candidates will have to choose four cities from where they are willing to appear for the examination. On the basis of availability, candidates will be assigned the examination centre in one of the chosen cities. They must choose their most preferred city as Option 1 followed by less preferred choices. In case the candidates are opting for multiple examination sessions, they will be allowed to change their choice of cities in the correction window to open after the end of first session on February 26.

Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ said the administration will try to assign the most preferred city to each candidate but due to logistical reasons, some candidates might get a different city.

The Education Minister earlier conducted a live session on Twitter where he mentioned that the first round of JEE 2021 will be held from February 23 to 26 in multiple shifts while the subsequent rounds will be held in March, April and May.
