Now of course it is natural to worry about how to reach center on time and not get late. Latecomers will not get entry to exam hall.
We suggest you to visit JEE Main 2017 exam center at least one day before exam. By doing that you will,
- Know exact center location and mark it in google maps.
- Get an idea of how long it would take to reach there on day of exam.
Candidates are advised to leave early from home on day of exam so that they can beat the traffic and reach center on time. If your center is in a remote location with narrow roads leading upto it, keep a lot of buffer time in hand since at the same time several candidates will be commuting by cars and public transport on that very day and cause delays on roads.
Things to take to exam center on day of JEE Main 2017
Two things are most important on day of exam which are Admit Card and Identity proof.
