Reason of Delay in JEE Main 2021 Dates?
There is not one, but many reasons that is causing a delay in the exam date of JEE Main 2021 attempt 1. These are:
Schools are shut since March 2020 and will remain shut till December 2020: The online classes have proven to be not effective in many parts of the nation. Hence, the syllabus and preparation of the students have been stagnant due to no physical schooling. This is one of the major reasons.
No defined syllabus and timeline: In a recent review meeting, HRD minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank has instructed the National Testing Agency (NTA) to provide a revised syllabus for competitive exams after assessment of the existing scenario in various boards. JEE Main syllabus is based on a 10+2 level syllabus that is generally followed by all state boards and the CBSE. However, the state boards and CBSE are not parallel right now in terms of the timeline being followed for the completion of syllabus and board exams. Hence, the confusion over the syllabus and dates.
Delay in preceding session in colleges: This year colleges are holding the first semester from December. So how can the 2021-22 admission will be done? Last year’s second JEE Main was held in September instead of April. The delay in the previous session has led to a delay in the dates of the entrance exams like JEE Main 2021.
