JOSAA 2021: JEE Counselling

In this regard, the Joint Seat Allocation Authority (JOSAA-2021) has already announced the counseling schedule for admissions. JOSA will begin the admissions process once the JEE Advanced results are released. It is learned that the JEE Advanced Examination process started somewhat late in the wake of the severe delays in the release of JEE Main final phase results. Earlier, JEE Advanced registration process was from September 12 to 19. JEE has postponed the registration process to September 13 due to delays in the main results. The main results were released on the 14th. In this context, IIT Kharagpur has extended the registration deadline for the Advanced Examination till September 21. 2.50 lakh students with merit with the prescribed cutoff in JEE Main have applied for JEE Advanced. They will be tested on October 3. The test will be conducted in two papers in the morning and afternoon. Candidates' response sheets will be available on the website from the evening of October 5. The primary 'key' will be released on October 10. Objections will be received on the 10th and 11th. Advanced exam final results will be released on October 15. Counseling for admissions will begin on the 16th. Seats in 23 IITs, 31 NITs, 26 IIITs and 29 Government Funded Technical Institutes (GIFTs) will be allotted to the respective candidates on the basis of merit and reservation.


It is known that the National Testing Agency (NTA) has managed JEE Main from 2021 in four phases. 9,39,008 people applied for the exams, which were conducted online. 7 lakh people appeared for the exam in the last fourth session. The NTA considers students highest score in any of the four sessions. However, the fact that some of the scores in the last session were higher than the first session's has raised many suspicions. Those who wrote the tests at a center in Sonipat, Haryana, got the highest marks. Earlier, those who did not score above 38 and 40 scored 95 to 99 points. Following complaints, the CBI has launched an investigation and arrested six members of a private educational institution. It also withheld the results of 20 students involved in the scam. It also debarred them from being able to write these tests for the next three years.
