The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main April session has been postponed. Several students and academicians are divided on whether or not it was a viable move considering there are four attempts offered this year. However, the delay would result in a deferred result. Since JEE Advanced is conducted based on Mains results, it too can face a ripple effect. As of now, the IIT entrance test – JEE Advanced is scheduled to be held on July 3.
While two sessions of JEE Main have seen the participation of over 11 lakh students, combined. The April and May sessions hold more importance for students who had skipped a year to prepare for the engineering entrances. Saurabh Kumar, National Director Academics, Vidyamandir Classes said, “For students who have dropped a year and preparing after class 12th, it as a blessing in disguise. Students need to use this time to practice more and revise their class 11th syllabus. Although the majority of students are happy with this decision, bright students who wanted to prove their mettle are disappointed. These students need to remain their focus.”
