JEE Main 2020: What Is The Dress Code Of JEE Main Exam? Check Details Here

The National Testing Agency, or NTA, has not specified any specific dress code for JEE Main 2020 to be worn by students appearing for the exam. However, it has specified what items are not allowed -- be it on clothing or otherwise. However, candidates who are going to appear in the April exam may be given a JEE Main dress code considering the COVID-19 pandemic situation.

General JEE Main 2020 Dress Code

  • Candidates are not allowed to carry any metallic objects while appearing for JEE Main 2020. Thus, they should avoid wearing any kind of jewellery, ornaments, or any other gadget.
  • Watches are not allowed in the exam hall.
  • Candidates who wear kara or kirpan due to religious reasons have to report to the exam centre almost 1.5 hours before the gate closing time and intimate the officials or otherwise, they will not be allowed to appear for the exam.

Changes in JEE Main dress code on account of COVID-19

With the pandemic situation hovering around, it is vital that students will be expected to dress according to the guidelines issued by the health ministry. This will include face masks, gloves and other such items. Since candidates may be asked to report quite early to allow a phased entry, they may also be allowed to carry some food items too.
