National Testing Agency (NTA) successfully conducted the JEE Main 2022 session 1 exam from June 23 to 29, 2022. The test was held in selected centres across 501 cities in India and 22 cities outside the country. After the successful conduction of session 1, the provisional answer key is likely to release on or before July 03, 2022. This date has been predicted based on past-year trends. The agency is yet to announce the exact date for answer key release.
Provisional Answer key for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2022 session 1 will be release in the PDF format on jeemain.nta.nic.in. Candidates will also receive an objection facility to raise issues against the provisional draft.
JEE Main 2022 Answer Key Release Date
Based on past 5-year trends, it is evident that the JEE Main 2022 session 1 answer is likely to release within 3-4 days of exam conduction i.e., by July 03, 2022. Although in 2018 and 2017, provisional answer key was published after 10-16 days, it is better to consider the events of past-3 years for a more accurate prediction.
Following is a table that summarises the past 5-year trends. It is important to note that the system of conducting two sessions of JEE Main was introduced in 2019. Prior to that, the test was held in a single session, through the offline mode.
|Exam Year||Exam Date||Answer key Release Date||Difference of Days|
|2022 (Session 1)||June 23 to 29, 2022||June 02-03, 2022 (Tentative)||3-4 days|

JEE Main 2022 Objection Facility
While releasing the JEE Main 2022 session 1 answer key, NTA will also provide an objection facility. This facility may remain active for 2-3 days i.e., till July 06, 2022. Using this facility, candidates can raise objections against any incorrect question, option or answer specified. They are also required to pay a certain fee to avail this facility. Based on last year’s information, the fee is likely to be Rs.200 for each objection.
NTA will consider objections which are supported by a valid reason or justification. The objection fee may be refunded to a candidate whose issues were valid.
The JEE Main 2022 session 1 final answer key will be curated by incorporating all valid objections in the provisional draft. The final key will then, be used to determine the exam scores. Release date for final answer key and scorecards shall be notified subsequently.
