Due to technical glitches that plagued both of JEE Main 2022 sessions, held in June and July last year, the applicants have urged that it be made possible for them to reappear for the engineering entrance examination. These glitches prevented them from giving the exam with their best effort, which caused many candidates' scores and percentiles to significantly decline.

Technological problems plagued the JEE exams last year, including multiple computer breakdowns, questions that took too long to load, a frozen screen for many minutes, unfinished questions, and more.

Similar technical problems were experienced by students during JEE Advanced 2022. It was the last attempt for many of the students who faced technical issues.

Exam Date

The JEE Advanced Exam 2023 is set to be conducted on June 4, 2023. Paper 1 will be conducted from 9 AM to 12 Noon, and paper 2 from 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM.

The petition seeks relaxation for candidates who appeared in 12th Board exam in the year 2021 for the first time to appear for JEE (Advanced), 2023 provided they should have appeared only once for the exam, either in 2021 or 2022 or have not at all appeared in any paper in both years.
