The National Testing Agency (NTA) revised the JEE Main 2023 exam dates for Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2023 on 18 January. As per the official notification released by NTA for City Intimation Slip, the exam dates have been changed from January 24, 25. 27, 28, 29, 30 and 31 January 2023 to 24 January, 25, 29, 30, 31 and 1 February.
The reason behind the removal of January 27 as the exam date is to ensure that JEE Main 2023 Exam candidates traveling from different cities do not face any problem. “Due to the January 26 restrictions, it may be inconvenient for students to travel if necessary. We wanted to make sure that the candidates do not face any such problem. NTA chief Vineet Joshi said that keeping this in mind, we have decided to change the exam date from January 27 to February 1.
As per the revised schedule, BE/B.Tech (Paper 1, Shift 1 and Shift 2) exams will be held on January 24, 25, 29, 30 and 31, and BArch and BPlanning (Paper 2A and Paper 2B) exams. Held on February 1, 2023 (2nd shift only). Meanwhile, the session 2 exam will be held in April. Candidates can appear in session 2 if they do not score well in session 1.
Joshi also said that since PM Modi’s Pariksha Pe Charcha 2023 is scheduled on January 27. “There may be some students who are enrolled in that too, and we wanted to avoid any clash,” he explained.
The NTA released the exam city information slip on Wednesday for the session 1 exam, which is scheduled to begin on January 24. Candidates who have applied for the exam can download the information slip from the official website – jeemain.nta.nic.in. National Testing Agency (NTA) will soon release the admit card/hall ticket for session 1.
