This year the JEE 2021 has undergone several changes. The national-level engineering entrance examination will be held in four phases as the BTech and BE candidates will get an opportunity to appear for the examination four times. The best of the four attempts will be considered for the final merit list. The exam will be held in 11 regional languages.
