There were speculations that the first phase of JEE Main is expected to take place in February. However, there are certain chances that JEE Main January 2021 is expected to be delayed till the end of February or the first week of March if board exams of CBSE and other states are not scheduled in the same month.

Dear Student,

No, you cannot apply for JEE Main if you are still in class 11th. As per the JEE Main eligibility requirement, the candidate must have passed class 12th in Science or must be appearing for the final examination. You can apply for the exam next year.
