The second wave of coronavirus has hit India, with many students and aspirants demanding the postponement of examinations. Similarly, aspirants have been demanding the postponement of the JEE Main examinations 2021.

Several students have taken to Twitter and hashtags such as #postponejee2021 and #canceljeemains have been trending on social media.



According to reports, JEE Main 2021 for the April session is scheduled to be conducted from April 27 to 30 in online mode. Moreover, 2021 JEE Main is being held in 4 sessions which are from February 23 to 26 (Session 1), March 15 to 18 (session 2), April 27 to 30 (Session 3), and May 24 to 28 (Session 4). This will be the third session of the JEE Exam in 2021. However, even with the rise in cases of coronavirus, the National Testing Agency (NTA), which conducts the exam is yet to give any indication of the postponement of the examinations.

On the other hand, earlier on Wednesday, April 14, the Education Ministry, after consultation with Prime Minister Narendra Modi had decided to postpone the CBSE class 12 board examinations. According to sources, the ministry will review the situation on June 1 to decide fresh dates. In addition, the ministry has cancelled the class 10 board examinations.

In the past, the Maharashtra government had also postponed the state board examinations of Classes 10 and 12, which were scheduled to be held this month, in view of the rising number of COVID-19 cases. The state government further stated that it would not want to jeopardize the safety of the students by holding the examinations as of now. The government had earlier cancelled tests for Classes 1 to 8.
