The Current Predicament
Lakhs of students look to this examination for an opportunity to be a part of the esteemed Indian Institute of Technology. High hopes and expectations tuned to confusion when the Human Resources Development (HRD) Ministry stated that NTA will be conducting JEE Main twice a year from 2019.
What do the reports say?
Some reports made the round that JEE Main will be conducted again in December of 2018. Such fake news adds fuel to the fire, leaving the aspirants biting their nails. There has been no official statement regarding the same and it’s highly unlikely for that to happen, so you all can relax.
Whatever the road to JEE Advanced be, the exam will still be conducted by IIT’s and not the NTA. The changes proposed are only for JEE Main and NEET exams. The IIT’s are also against the HRD Ministry’s purview of making the JEE Advanced easier.
