It seems that NTA is planning to restore the requirement of obtaining minimum marks in Inter for JEE Main and Advanced exams. In the past it is mandatory to pass the intermediate with at least 75 percent marks along with the rank obtained in JEE. For SC and ST students, 65 percent marks is sufficient. Before Corona, admissions were provided in the same manner. However, during the corona epidemic, many states declared ‘Allpass’ without conducting inter examinations. Due to this, the minimum marks norms have been lifted in 2020, 2021 and 2022. Irrespective of the marks, all the passers have been given the flexibility to get admissions in NITs and IITs based on the entrance exam rank. It is reported that NTA has decided to re-implement the old rules for next year’s JEE Main and Advanced-2023 as the Corona virus has subsided and normalcy has prevailed.
Although the NTA thought that the JEE Main would be conducted in January and April, there was confusion among the students as the first round of notification was not given so far. Actually there should be a minimum period of 40 days between notification and examination. If JEE Main is not conducted in January, if the exam is conducted in February or March, there will be problems due to academic exams. While the CBSE Class 12th exams will start from February 15, the practicals will start in February and the inter exams will start in the month of March. But as NTI has not given any announcement regarding JEE, there is no clarity on when the exam will be held.
