There are fewer chances for the cancellation of JEE Main as admission to IITs and NITs is a serious matter. Check the impact on B.Tech aspirants and the admission process if JEE Main 2022 is canceled due to the worst Covid-19 situation in India post-July. 

Impact on B.Tech admissions if JEE Main is Canceleld

JEE Main- JEE Main 2022 exam will be conducted by JEE Apex Board from June 23 to June 29, 2022 for the first session and July 21 to July 30, 2022 for the second session. Covid-19 has changed the entire education scenario of the nation. The admit card has been for session 1 on June 21, 2022, and will be released separately for session 2 at the official website, jeemain.nta.nic.in. JEE Main 2022 is conducted for admission in NITs, IITs, IIITs, and other top government/ private engineering colleges across the country. Several campaigns are being run on social media platforms with regard to the postponement/ cancellation of JEE Main entrance exam. Before thinking about the cancellation of JEE Main 2022 entrance exam, we must have an idea or awareness of what impact will it have on the serious students who spend at least a year preparing for this exam. At the same time, we should know about the impact that will fall on the B.Tech admission process if JEE Main is canceled.

How will JEE Main Cancellation Affect Serious Students?

We all know that certain students prepare for JEE Main and JEE Advanced for at least a year in order to get admission to IITs. These students work rigorously to achieve their goals. The cancellation of JEE Main will affect these students as their preparation will go in vain. At the same time, students may go into depression if IIT/ NIT admissions are based on Class 12 marks. However, this situation will not arise and the government will consider all possibilities to conduct the JEE Main exam.

Recently, IITs have also opined that the cancellation of JEE Main is not the best option. As admission to IITs is a serious matter, it should be based on the JEE Main and Advanced only.

How will JEE Main Postponement Affect Students?

Postponement of JEE Main 2022 exam date will also have a negative impact on students who have been constantly preparing for the exam. The JEE Main exam dates have been rescheduled from June 20 to June 29, 2022 for the first session and July 21 to July 30, 2022 for the second session and most students have mentally prepared for the same. Postponing JEE Main again will influence students in such a way that they may lose interest in exam preparation and taking the exam as well.

How will JEE Main Cancellation Affect B Tech Admission Process 2022?

If the JEE Main exam is canceled for the year 2022, it will have a great impact on the B.Tech admission process for the academic session 2022-23. While IITs, NITs, IIITs, and GFTIs consider JEE Main rank for admission, cancellation of exams will lead to changes in the admission rules. If Class 12 marks are to be considered for admission, some students may not get admission to their preferred college.

For example, if a student scored 85% in board exams and 90 percentile in JEE Main, he/ she will be advantageous if considered JEE Main rank. If board exam marks are considered the same, the student may not get admission to college as per his choice or preference.

States that conduct their own entrance exams will also face this issue if exams are canceled. Therefore, cancellation of entrance exams cannot be the best option.

Is there a Chance for Considering JEE Main 2021 Percentile for Admission?

As of now, no decision has been taken on the consideration of JEE Main 2021 marks. To be precise, most students consider the January session of JEE Main as a practice test, and based on the percentile scored in the first session, students prepare accordingly for the second session. Therefore, considering JEE Main January 2021 session percentile may not be possible.

Student Safety vs Conducting Entrance Exam

Student safety will be the first priority for the government, and entrance exams will not be conducted if the situation gets works in July. At the same time, the government will look for alternative options of assessment. If the government goes ahead with conducting exams,

How will B Tech Admission Process Take Place if JEE Main Is Cancelled?

If the JEE Main entrance exam or any other state-level exam is canceled, the following changes are expected in the admission process for the B.Tech course.

Merit List

Tamil Nadu is one of the states where engineering exams are non-entrance based. Students are admitted based on Class 12 marks. The marks scored in main subjects such as Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics/ Biology are aggregated to determine the merit positions. If entrance exams are canceled, states that conduct entrance exams may follow the process adopted by Tamil Nadu for B.Tech admission. You can click on the links below for more details.

Online Document Verification

Unlike every year where students need to go to the helpline center for document verification, the admission process of 2022 will have changes where students will upload their documents online and the same shall be verified digitally. This process will be implemented even if exams are canceled or not.

Online Classes

It is most unlikely that face-to-face classes/ offline classes will happen this year. While some private universities are ready to start online classes after conducting online counseling, this year, we may expect only online classes.

Conclusion

It is not the right time to say that JEE Main exam should be canceled for the academic session 2022-23 and students must be admitted on the basis of merit. According to the latest updates, the JEE Apex Board will conduct JEE Main 2022  from June 20 to June 29, 2022 for the first session and July 21 to July 30, 2022 for the second session. We advise students to not give up their preparation for the entrance exam as there are fewer chances for the cancellation of the exam.

Stay positive. All The Best!
