The NTA had mentioned that a candidate can attempt JEE (Advanced) a maximum of two times in consecutive years irrespective of whether or not he/she has passed the qualifying examination (JEE Main). The first attempt for the national engineering entrance test will be conducted from February 23 to 26.

  • The aspirants must appear in Bachelors in Engineering (BE) or Bachelor in Technology (BTech) of JEE Main 2021. Based on their performance in the entrance test, they will be allowed to appear for JEE Advanced 2021.
