JEE Advanced exams on 3 July; 75% eligibility criteria...

 The Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) will conduct the joint entrance examination (JEE) Advanced on 3 July, the Union education ministry said on Thursday and announced the relaxation of the minimum board examination marks criteria for eligibility. However, the plan of taking the examination in regional languages is off the table this year.

“We have received feedback from students and parents. As the covid-19 crisis is not yet over, we have also kept aside the 75% score criteria (of Class XII board exams) in 2021," education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal said in a video message

Pokhriyal did not touch upon the language issue in his video message. However, the IITs have decided not to conduct the JEE Advanced examination in regional languages, at least in 2021, contrary to the education ministry’s stated intent last year to start some undergraduate courses in regional languages this year.
