The admit cards for the third session of JEE Mains 2021 will be released soon by the National Testing Agency (NTA) on its official website- jeemain.nta.nic.in. The application window was reopened on July 6 and closed on July 8. With the dates of the test nearing, the agency is expected to issue the hall tickets shortly.
The Joint Entrance Exams (Mains) 2021 will be conducted from July 20 to 25 and from July 27 to August 2. The third edition of the exam will be conducted from July 20-25 while the fourth will be held from July 27 to August 2.
The registrations process for the fourth session of the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main began on July 9 and is still open.
However, the gap between the two pending sessions is only two days this year, which has created unease among the aspirants.
Niharika Lalwani, a student told The Free Press Journal, "Initially, the sessions were scheduled a month apart for a reason so that we get time to prepare and improve in the next attempt. But now, how are we supposed to improve in just two to seven days after we appear for one session?"
Rahees Zainab, another student said, "It seems like the Centre and NTA want to finish conducting the exams in a hurry. But JEE Main is a competitive test for which students prepare for more than two years. We cannot rush with such exams. Students need to be given sufficient time to prepare, analyse, rectify mistakes and improve their scores in the next attempt."
From this session, the JEE-Mains is being conducted four times a year to offer flexibility to students and a chance to improve their scores. The first phase in February was followed by the second in March, while the next phases were scheduled for April and May. However, they were postponed after an exponential rise in COVID cases during the second wave of the pandemic.
