How Do Students Feel about Changes in JEE Main Exam Dates?

Here are some of the opinions expressed by JEE Main exam aspirants with regard to changes in exam dates -

Student Safety First: No doubt that student safety will be the first priority than conducting the exam. With the spike in the number of Covid-19 cases and non-availability of the vaccine will further increase the cases. In such a scenario, postponing the exam is the better option as lakhs of students along with parents travels to exam centres.

Mental Stress & Pressure: Some of the students preparing for JEE Main expressed that changes in exam dates and the current situation in India is affecting them mentally. When a student prepares for the exam perfectly and it gets postponed twice, it is nothing but a mental pressure & stress. In order to maintain track, students will have to do the revision constantly until September. This aspect is causing mental stress in them.

Losing Interest in Exam: Some students also mentioned that they have been losing interest in the exam now. When they got additional days to prepare for the exam after the postponement of April 05-11 exam, it was an additional benefit to boost the exam preparation. As the exam scheduled from July 18-23 has been postponed, the second postponement is making students lose interest. We suggest students to not give hope and keep revising the syllabus now and then to have a track.

Good Decision by Government: Some students expressed that the government took a good decision by postponing the exam till September. Due to the uncertainty over the exam dates, most of the students were not able to prepare for the exam properly. Therefore, the additional two months will be the right time to revise the syllabus.

Experts’ Reaction on Changes in JEE Main Exam Dates 2022

Experts opined that the government took the right decision by postponing the exam considering student safety. If the government would have conducted an exam from July 18-23, it would have become difficult to maintain student safety and social distancing. Recently, some students from Karnataka who appeared for SSLC exams have been tested positive for Covid-19. In such a scenario, conducting the exam is not a good move. Experts are advising students to not feel stress or pressure. This will get back to normal in a few months.

What is the Right Strategy to Prepare for JEE Main September Exam?

Yes. This is the right question at the moment, as we need to think about what strategy works for the September exam of JEE Main. According to the analysis done by CollegeDekho, the following strategy can be one of the options -

Do Not Study Long Hours: Students who had already spent one year for JEE Main preparation need not study long hours for the September exam. Note down some important points and formulas from different chapters on a paper. Stick them on a wall in your room. Whenever you get time, just go through that point or formulas so that you will always stay on track.

Apart from this, you can spend your time by listening to various lectures on YouTube, SWAYAM Portal or Abhyas App. Use digital resources to the full extent.

Give Importance to Practice Tests: Rather than sitting long hours revising chapters or syllabus, it is advisable to give more importance to practice tests. You can practice tests online or buying some books available in market or e-commerce platforms. Compete yourself in each practice test. If you marked 20 wrong answers in the first test, improve your preparation and make sure that your wrong count reduces in the second test.

Try to Make Your Weakness as Strength: As there are almost two months for the entrance exam. You can try to make your weakness as a strength. If you are not good at one subject (Mathematics/ Physics/ Chemistry), try to gain competency in that particular subject so that you can score better percentile in the entrance exam. Note that the exam postponement is not worrying you and it is giving you additional strength to score the best.

Maintain Good Physical Health: As all students are staying at home due to Covid-19 outbreak, there is no scope for maintaining Physical fitness. Therefore, spend at least 1-2 hours for physical exercise. You can also help your parents with household chores for at least one hour in a day so that you can maintain good physical health. This will help you in preparing for the exam effectively.


This will be the final change in the exam date of JEE Main, and the exam will be conducted as per schedule in September. So, we advise you to not give up and keep doing your best. Stay positive and get rid of any mental stress or pressure. Situations are going to turn normal in the coming days. These are just testing times for every individual and the way we cope up with the situation indicates our mental strength.
