The long-awaited JEE Main 2021 3rd and 4th phase exams are now scheduled to be held from July 20 and July 27, 2021, respectively, as per the latest directives of the National Testing Agency. While the last date to register online for the 4th phase exams is today i.e., July 12, 2021, admit cards for the third phase exam are expected soon on the official website.
After conducting the first two phases of the Joint Entrance Examination (Main), 2021 in February and March 2021 respectively, the NTA was pushed to postpone the 3rd Phase and 4th Phase exams on account of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in India. NTA has now released the revised schedule and the April and May session exams are now set to be held in July-August 2021.
Admit cards for the JEE Main 2021 3rd Phase exams are expected to release soon on the official website jeemain.nta.nic.in. The admit card releases through candidate login. Although the NTA has not committed to an exact date of release of the JEE Main Admit Card for the 3rd Phase exams, based on the schedule of events during the exams of the 1st and 2nd phases, it is being anticipated that the result will release before the end of this week.
In the previous session of the JEE Main 2021 exams, the National Testing Agency released the admit card 05 days before the exam date. However, in the first session, the admit card was released around 12 days before the exam date. This leads us to conclude that the NTA will not delay in releasing the admit cards of the 3rd and 4th session exams.
The NTA 3rd session exams were initially scheduled to be held in April 2021. However, they are now scheduled to be held from July 20 to 25, 2021. The 4th session exam of the JEE Main 2021 was earlier scheduled to be held in May 2021. However, they are now scheduled to be held from July 27 to August 02, 2021. The exam is held as a computer-based test in centres across India.
Owing to the pandemic, the NTA has increased the number of exam cities to 334 from 232. In addition, the number of exam centres has also been increased to 828 from 660 in every shift. Candidates have been notified about and directed to abide by necessary COVID protocol during the conduct of the exam.
Face masks will be provided by the NTA in all exam centres. All furniture, equipment including computers and seats will be sanitized before and after the exam, the NTA has declared. Candidates are advised to visit the official website for further updates.
