The second round of engineering entrance examination SRMJEEE 2021 has been postponed by SRM University.

The exam was scheduled to be held on July 25 and 26. However, as per the new timetable, the exam will be held on June 29 and 30, 2021.

SRM Institute of Science and Technology has campuses in Kattankulathur, Ramapuram, Vadapalani Campus – all in and around Chennai, and Modinagar, NCR, Delhi - offering a wide range of undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programs in six Faculties – Engineering and Technology, Management, Medicine and Health Sciences, Science & Humanities, Law and Agricultural Sciences.

The first round examination was conducted on May 23 and 24 in remote proctored mode and the result was announced recently.

SRM Joint Entrance Examination - Engineering (SRMJEEE-UG) for B.Tech is common for the SRM Group of Universities viz., SRM Institute of Science & Technology, SRM University AP – Amaravati and SRM University Haryana - Sonepat.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Education will soon review the situation to decide on conducting the two remaining editions of engineering entrance exams JEE-Mains and medical entrance exam NEET in August, sources said on Wednesday.

"A review meeting is likely to be conducted soon to decide on schedule of the pending editions of JEE-Mains and whether NEET-UG can be conducted on August 1," a source said.

The cancellation of class 12 board exams on Tuesday in view of the COVID-19 pandemic situation will bring more clarity and the schedule for the subsequent entrance examinations is expected to be decided soon.

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.

But they were postponed after an exponential rise in Covid cases during the second wave of the pandemic.

Last week, JEE-Advanced, which is conducted for admission to the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology and the National Institutes of Technology, was also postponed. The exam was scheduled for July 3.

While no further decision was taken about NEET-UG, the registration of the exam which was supposed to commence from May 1, was kept in abeyance.

The ministry is also yet to decide on the fate of the Central University Common Entrance Test (CUCET) and a decision in this regard is expected after the CBSE announces its alternative assessment criteria for class 12 boards.
