If the examination Board of Class 12 (or equivalent) declared the results for the academic year 2018-19 after June 2019, then the candidates of that board who appeared for their Class 12 exam in 2019 are also eligible to appear in JEE Advanced 2021, provided they meet all the other eligibility criteria.
In case, the examination Board of Class 12 (or equivalent) declared the results for the academic year 2018-19 before June 2019 but the result of a particular candidate was withheld, then the candidate will not be eligible to appear in JEE Advanced 2021.
Candidates who successfully registered for JEE Advanced 2020 but were absent in both the papers, i.e. Paper 1 and Paper 2, of JEE Advanced 2020 are eligible to appear for JEE Advanced 2021 and do not need to fulfil the criteria. However, they must successfully register for the JEE Advanced 2021 in the online registration portal and pay the registration.
These candidates would be considered in addition to and not as part of the total number of candidates who would qualify from JEE Main 2021 for appearing in JEE Advanced 2021. This is a one-time measure valid only for JEE Advanced 2021.
