Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS) is soon going to release the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Selection Test (JNVST) 2020 for class 6 admissions. As per the official notification that was released with the application form, the date of release of admit card was supposed to be December 1, 2020. However until now, NVS has not made any separate announcement regarding issuance of hall tickets.
A login link is active at navodaya.gov.in on the class 6 admissions page that is nvsadmissionclasssix.in/nvs6reg/homepage, which is the official website for JNVST 2020. However students have confirmed that they cannot see any admit card download link after logging in.
It is expected that the samiti will release admit card soon. Download link will either be provided separately on the website, or download facility will be activated within the same login that is available right now. Either ways, candidates shall need to use their usernames and passwords in order to obtain the document.
