Several changes in JEE Main 2021
The academic year 2021 has been held virtually becuase schools were shut as one of the measures to curb the COVID-19 pandemic. This has made the Education Ministry announce several relaxations for the students. For instance, for admission to colleges for JEE result, earlier along with the JEE score, candidates had to attain a minimum of 75% marks, This minimum requirement in Boards has been waived-off, however, students still have to pass Baord exams.
For JEE Main students, this was the first time that internal choices were added to the exam. Stduents were to answer 25 questions out of 30 questions asked in each section of JEE Main. This was done to ensure synergy between schools and NTA. The state and central boards had curtailed the syllabys by about 30% for class 12 students/
This year, for the first time, JEE was held in regional languages. It was held in 13 regional languages. All though, English still remained the top choice followed by Hindi. This was in line with the new Education Policy introduced in 2020 which emphasises on offering education in mother tongue.
