This year will there be JEE Main and JEE AdvancedIIT aspirants can breathe a little more easy, now that the Union HRD Minister has announced that the marks obtained in class 12 won't be a criteria for this year's admission to IITs. Otherwise, students had to earlier score at least 75% marks in class 12 or be among the top 20 percentile in their respective board. This will certainly bring relief as many of the boards were not able to finish their board exams due to the lockdown.
But, what I am wondering is, will it be at all possible to conduct this year's JEE Main, JEE Advanced or the NEET exam? Already their dates have been shifted twice and the way the virus is progressing in the country, things won't be favourable even in September, the next likely dates for conducting these exams. What will the authorities do then? Postpone it further or simply cancel it for this year? Or will it be combined with the next year's batch? It will be double trouble then for both the batches.
