The JEE Advanced 2021 is an eligibility test for admission to UG Engineering programs to 23 IITs in India. IIT Kharagpur was supposed to hold the exam on July 3, 2021. Now, IIT Kharagpur has rescheduled the exam due to the lockdown-like restrictions and the subsequent postponement of JEE Main 2021 (April and May sessions) to October 3. IIT Delhi along with the Joint Admission Board has also allowed candidates who qualified for the JEE Advanced in 2020 but couldn’t appear for JEE Advanced exam in 2021 to take the exam without having to take the JEE Main exam. Further, the Centre has also removed the criteria of a minimum of 75% marks for this exam.

Eligibility criteria to qualify for JEE Advanced 2021

Further, JEE (Advanced) 2021 candidates should have been born on or after October 1, 1996. However, SC, ST, and PwD candidates will get a relaxation of 5 years (born on or after October 1, 1991). The candidates can also only attempt JEE Advanced a maximum of two times in two consecutive years.

All candidates should have qualified for the 10+2 examination in 2020 or 2021 for the first time. However, if the result for the academic year 2018-19 came out after June 2019, the candidates qualifying Class 12 in 2019 can also apply for JEE Advanced 2021 if they also meet the other eligibility criteria. Further, candidates who successfully registered for JEE (Advanced) 2020 but were absent in both the papers, i.e. Paper 1 and Paper 2, of JEE (Advanced) 2020 can also appear for JEE (Advanced) 2021.
