Several changes have been introduced in the entrance exam this year. Each IIT will have the freedom to decide on the female-only reserved seats. The additional seats will be created to ensure at least 20 per cent of candidates are women in undergraduate programmes and in case the participation is lower, required seats will be added.
Students who could not appear for JEE Advanced 2020 but were eligible to take the exam this year as a one-time relaxation and will be allowed to take the exam this year as well without appearing for JEE Main 2021. This might increase the competition for the already tough entrance test.
