“Please shift JEE Main May attempt as I have Biology board exam in the same date,” a student said on social media.
“Sir, As the CBSE Class 12 exams are scheduled during May-Jun 2021, request reschedule JEE MAIN of May 2021 session to mid Jun 2021 as students will get one chance to appear JEE MAIN after their CBSE board exams,” one student wrote.

“I'm a PCM+Economics student and I will give the JEE Main exam. There is a possibility that the JEE main exam of the may attempt might clash with the economics board exam on 25th may 2021. This must be the case of many…” another student said.

National Testing Agency (NTA) officials told the Times of India that students who will appear in CBSE Biology exam on May 24 will not be given the JEE Main exam slot on that day.
“The roll numbers of CBSE students will be collected by May. Biology students will get an exam session other than May 24 so that there won’t be a clash,” NTA official said.
