The first session of the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) Main 2022, to be tentatively conducted in February, is most likely to be delayed and rescheduled to March or April given the rising cases of Covid-19 and the assembly elections to be held in five states next month, experts have said.

Partha Halder, the centre head of FIIT JEE Punjabi Bagh in Delhi, said the National Testing Agency (NTA) is yet to release the official notification and students are unsure of how the four attempts will be scheduled.

“The provision of four attempts was introduced only last year, with the first session scheduled in February and then all the remaining sessions getting rescheduled in the Covid aftermath. This year, we are not even

sure if NTA plans to conduct the engineering entrance test in February or not,” Halder said.

“The third wave of Covid does not propose a conducive environment to go ahead with the exams,” he added.

Academics Director at Vidyamandir Classes, Saurabh Kumar, also hinted at a strong possibility of JEE Main 2022 not beginning in February.

“It will most likely be conducted in March, largely due to the worsening Covid situation and the assembly elections. Most exams scheduled before March 10 are expected to be postponed. Besides, the NTA usually releases the notification with enough time for candidates to apply, and the agency has not opened the registration window yet, ” Kumar said.
