What’s new in JEE Main 2022?

JEE (Main) 2022 examination will be conducted in two Sessions before admissions in the academic session.

  • This will give two opportunities to the candidates to improve their scores in the examination if they fail to give their best in the first attempt without wasting their whole academic year.
  • In the first attempt, students will get a first-hand experience of taking an examination and will know their mistakes which they can improve while attempting for the next time.
  • If any candidate misses the examination due to reasons beyond control, then he/she will not have to wait for one full year.
  • Candidates are not required to compulsorily take the test in both the sessions though if a candidate appears in both Sessions, the best of the candidate’s NTA scores will be considered.
