New Delhi: The third and fourth phases of the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Mains will be held back to back, from 20 July to 2 August this year, Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank announced Tuesday. 

This is the first time that the government is holding four phases of JEE (Mains), and this gives aspirants four shots to appear for the exam. The first and second phases of the exam for the academic session 2021-22 have already been held. Dates for the third and fourth had not been announced so far because of the second wave of Covid-19. 

The minister, in an online address to students, said the third edition of JEE Mains will be held from 20 July to 25 July, and the fourth from 27 July to 2 August. 

He added that students who have been unable to register for the exam so far will be given time ahead of the third and fourth editions to do so. Students can register for the third edition from 6 July to 8 July and, for the fourth, from 9 July to 12 July.

“This is the first time that four phases of JEE Mains are being held by the NTA (National Testing Agency). It is a very good opportunity for students and I urge you all to not miss it,” Pokhriyal said.

For student safety

Pokhriyal added that if a student has appeared in all four phases of the exam, the one where they have the best score will considered for admission. 

“Apart from organising four editions of JEE Mains, we are also going to organise the exam in 13 regional languages so that students from rural areas, those who have studied in regional languages, can also become engineers,” the minister added. 

He said students will be allowed to choose an exam centre of their choice, which they can change within three days of application. The number of exam centres has been doubled for the exam so that Covid-19 protocols can be followed, the minister added, as he sought to assure students of their safety.
