Speculations were rife that the Education Minister would make some important decision regarding CBSE board exam dates during his interaction with the teachers.
On the other hand, Pokhriyal on Wednesday released the schedule of the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2021. The entrance exam will be conducted in multiple sessions for the next academic session in February, March, April and May 2021.
The first session of JEE Main 2021 will be conducted by NTA between February 23 and February 26, in multiple shifts.
It is said that exams in multiple sessions will give multiple opportunities to candidates to improve their scores in the entrance exam if they fail to give their best in the first attempt without wasting their whole academic year.
