Exam Calender

Exam calendar:

A candidate has option to apply for one Session or more than one Session (February/March /April /May 2021) together and pay exam fee accordingly. In other words, if a candidate wishes to apply only for one Session, he / she has to pay examination fee only for that Session during the current application period and will have opportunity to apply again for the remaining March/ April / May Sessions. The application window will be re-opened briefly immediately after the declaration of the result of February / March/April Session.
Examination for the May session will be the last Examination for coming academic year. Fees can also be carried forward to another Session of JEE (Main) 2021. In case a candidate does not want to appear in the Session for which fee has already been paid, it will be refunded by NTA. For this, the Candidate will have to make a request only during the application process of the session for which he/she wants to withdraw. Multiple application forms submitted by a candidate for the same Session(s) will not be accepted at any cost.
