National Testing Agency (NTA) is currently conducting the registration process for the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2021 May or Session 4. The registration process is open till July 12, 2021, up to 9:00 pm and the last date to pay the application fee is July 12, 2021, up to 11:50 pm. Interested candidates willing to pursue courses like B.Arch., B.Planning, B.Tech. or B.E. still have ample time to complete the registration formalities on the official website jeemain.nta.nic.in. Here are 5 mistakes that candidates must not commit while filling the application form.
#1 Submitting multiple online applications
According to the information bulletin released by the NTA, each candidate must submit only one fully-filled online application form. The form must be submitted on the official website jeemain.nta.nic.in. Sometimes, due to uncertainty, candidates submit multiple applications forms with the same details for the same session. In case such a deed is found during the May session 2021 registration process, NTA will summarily reject all these applications. The candidature of the respective student will also get cancelled. Hence, with a calm composure, candidates must fill only one JEE Main 2021 application form and submit it within the deadline.
#2 Forgetting to check the confirmation page
After paying the JEE Main 2021 application fee, a confirmation page shall get generated. This page indicates successful payment by the aspirant. Many a time, candidates pay the fee and forget to check this page, leading to the cancellation of their candidature. To prevent this, students must ensure that the page is generated. If not, they must contact the concerned bank or payment gateway to check whether the transaction happened or not. If not, they must apply for a refund and pay the prescribed fee again.
#3 Filling the application form through offline or other unreliable websites
JEE Main 2021 registration process for all previous sessions took place through the official website jeemain.nta.nic.in. The fourth or May 2021 (postponed) session is no different. Hence, candidates are instructed to not apply for the exam through any other website or through the offline mode. NTA shall not be accepting any application forms sent to them via post or fax, under any circumstances. This advise is especially, directed to those candidates who are going to register for JEE Main 2021 for the first time this month.
#4 Waiting for the correction window to make changes in application form
NTA has made it amply clear that it shall not be providing any separate correction window to candidates after the registration process. This is due to the limited number of days left for the exam. Hence, candidates must not remain under the delusion of getting a separate correction window. They are advised to carefully fill their JEE Main 2021 application form, check all the details entered before finally submitting it.
#5 Sending corrections by various mediums to the NTA
Few candidates also tend to send corrections to the NTA authorities via email ID, post, fax or WhatsApp. These correction requests will not be accepted by the NTA under any circumstances. Any correction requests after July 12, 2021, will not be entertained as well. Hence, candidates are advised to fill the application form with utmost care and vigilance. These small notes and advices can go a long way in helping aspirants get their candidature accepted by the authorities.
