Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal will announce the date for JEE Advanced 2021 on January 7 via a webinar at 6.00 pm.

Along with the eagerly awaited exam dates, Pokhriyal will also announce the eligibility criteria for admission to Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs).

Pokhriyal on his official twitter handle writes, “My dear students, I will announce the eligibility criteria for admission in #IITs & the date of #JEE Advanced on 7th Jan at 6 PM. Stay tuned!”

This year, the JEE Main 2021 examination will be conducted four times. The first attempt of the examination will be from February 23 to 26, 2021. The last date to register for the engineering entrance examination is January 16, 2021.

There have been many changes proposed in the conduction process of the JEE Main and Advanced examinations this year, due to the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and the loss of academics for the students.

One of the changes this year is that the candidates who cleared the JEE Main 2020 exam but were unable to appear for the JEE Advanced 2020 exam due to the pandemic will be able to appear for the JEE Advanced 2021 examination directly.
