JEE Mains 2021: Starting from this academic session, the Centre decided to hold JEE-Mains four times a year to offer flexibility to students and a chance to improve their scores. The first phase in February was followed by the second phase in March, while the next phases were scheduled for April and May. These two sessions were postponed due to rise in the number of COVID-19 cases.

Moreover, the JEE-Advanced exam, which is conducted for admission to the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology and the National Institutes of Technology, was also postponed. The exam was scheduled on July 3.

NEET 2021: The NEET-UG is scheduled for August 1 and no further decision was taken on its cancellation or postponement. The ministry is also yet to decide on the fate of the Central University Common Entrance Test (CUCET).

Earlier this month, the CBSE cancelled class 12 board exams in view of the pandemic and has announced a marks tabulation policy. Following the same route, the CISCE and several state boards also cancelled the same exams.
