Frontlist | JEE Main May Exam Date Clash With CBSEFrontlist | JEE Main May Exam Date Clash With CBSE
on Feb 05, 2021 As per the recently announced Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 12 date sheet, the Biology paper is scheduled for May 24 – on the same day when the May session of the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Main will be held. Karnataka Class 12 students will also appear for their Physics paper on May 24. JEE Main May exams are scheduled for May 24-28 and CBSE Class 12 Computer Science (old) paper is scheduled for May 29, one day after the end of the Engineering entrance exam. Maths and Chemistry exams of Karnataka PUC are scheduled for May 27 and 31.
However, it should be noted that JEE Main, unlike previous years, is being held in four sessions this year-- February, March, April, and May.
The move will ensure that students don't miss out on opportunities due to clash of exams or due to the COVID-19 situation, Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ had said while announcing JEE Main 2021 dates and changes in the exam.
One student asked for a change in exam dates with the argument that someone may get an exam centre in a different city.
“Please shift JEE Main May attempt as I have Biology board exam in the same date,” a student said on social media.
“Sir, As the CBSE Class 12 exams are scheduled during May-Jun 2021, request reschedule JEE MAIN of May 2021 session to mid Jun 2021 as students will get one chance to appear JEE MAIN after their CBSE board exams,” one student wrote.
“I'm a PCM+Economics student and I will give the JEE Main exam. There is a possibility that the JEE main exam of the may attempt might clash with the economics board exam on 25th may 2021. This must be the case of many…” another student said.
National Testing Agency (NTA) officials told the Times of India that students who will appear in CBSE Biology exam on May 24 will not be given the JEE Main exam slot on that day.
“The roll numbers of CBSE students will be collected by May. Biology students will get an exam session other than May 24 so that there won’t be a clash,” NTA official said. Source: NDTV
