The National Testing Agency (NTA) would be conducting both the entrance examinations.
The admit cards are expected to be released two weeks before the examination. However, given the situation, it may be delayed and issued days prior to the test. JEE Advanced exam will be held in August 2020, Pokhriyal said.
The ministry also said that the pending CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) board exams and answer sheet evaluation schedule will be announced in the next two days.
The delay in board exams further deferred the university entrances, given the coronavirus lockdown. Earlier, the JEE Mains and NEET exams were scheduled between April 5 to April 11 and May 3, respectively.
“Certain competitive examinations like JEE Mains require examinees to travel to other centers and in some cases even to other cities, to appear in the said examination. Also, the dates may clash with rescheduled CBSE and other board exams. Therefore, JEE Mains should be rescheduled and a new date will be announced on March 31, after re-assessment of the situation,” the ministry had said when the exams were deferred.
