Will JEE Advanced 2020 Exam Pattern/ Format be Changed?

While the Paper 1 exam takes place in the morning session, Paper 2 takes place in the afternoon session. The duration of each paper is 3 hours. With the increase in the number of Covid-19cases, IITs are planning to conduct only one paper instead of two this year. The final decision with regard to the same shall be taken on July 17, 2020.

Will JEE Advanced 2020 Syllabus be Reduced?

JAB will also discuss on the reduction of the syllabus of JEE Advanced 2020 to reduce the stress on students. However, most students have already appeared for JEE Main and prepared full syllabus. Changing syllabus at this point of time may not help students according to experts. The decision on JEE Advanced 2021 syllabus will be also taken during the meeting.

Alternative Measures if JEE Advanced 2020 is Cancelled

JAB will also discuss alternative measures if JEE Advanced 2020 scheduled on September 27, 2020, is cancelled. The board will discuss the alternative admission process and academic calendar.
