  1. Hi,

    I have registered for all the 4 (February, March, April, May ) sessions of JEE for 2021
    But now, I do not want to attempt the exam in march and would want to withdraw the fee for the same.
    Can someone tell how to do this ?

    • The brochure says – Incase a candidate does not want to appear in the Session for which fee has already been paid, it will be refunded by NTA. For this, the Candidate will have to make a request only during the application process of the session for which he/she wants to withdraw.

      Which means, that when JEE Main 2021 application form opens for March session, you will have to submit request for withdrawal then.

    • Hi Shweta
      NTA has not clarified whether they when and whether they will update the status. I think you have made the requisite update, it will reflect when your admit card is released.
