JEE Main 2020: NTA Gives Another Chance To Change Exam Centres And Make Corrections
The NTA had previously permitted corrections in JEE Main 2020 application form from March 13 to March 16 and then again from April 1 to May 3.
The National Testing Agency (NTA) has allowed candidates to make corrections in their particulars and choice of centre cities in the online application form of Joint Entrance Exam Main, or JEE Main 2020.
This decision has been taken in view of demand from various candidates regarding correction in candidates' particulars and choice of centre cities in the online application form for JEE Main 2020 due to constraints faced by them due to COVID-19 lockdown.
“The facility to undertake the corrections will be available from May 25 to 31,” says the notification.
As per the notification, the NTA will make all efforts to allot the exam centre chosen by the candidates in their application form, subject to its availability. However, due to administrative reasons, the candidates may be assigned an exam centre in another city and “the decision of NTA regarding allotment of the centre city shall be final”.
NTA has also extended the application correction facility for National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET 2020) till May 31.
In an interview to Careers360 on May 16, NTA Director General Vineet Joshi had said that the application correction window for JEE Main 2020 will be opened soon.
