JEE Advanced 2020 has been postponed by the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi) and will be rescheduled after JEE Main 2020 is conducted. The decision to postpone JEE Advanced 2020 has been conveyed by IIT Delhi in Twitter. The exam was initially supposed to be held in May 2020.


“IITDelhi, the organizing institute for Joint Entrance Examination (JEE-Advanced) 2020, has postponed the entrance examination that was scheduled to be held on May 17, 2020,” tweeted the official handle of IIT Delhi.

“JEE (Main) 2020 April examination has been postponed due to COVID-19 outbreak. JEE (Advanced) 2020, which was scheduled to be held on May 17, 2020 (Sunday), thus stands postponed and will be rescheduled after JEE (Main) 2020,” added the institute.

The National Testing Agency (NTA) announced yesterday that JEE Main 2020 examinations, which were scheduled to be held on 5th, 7th to 9th and 11th April 2020, had been postponed to the end of May 2020.

“We are hopeful that we would get back to normal relatively soon; but for now, we are closely monitoring the scenario to evaluate if the situation may necessitate any change in the schedule. Accordingly, the Admit Cards for the Examination will now be issued after 15th April 2020 based on the situation at that time,” said NTA.

NTA also said that admit cards to JEE Mains would be issued after 15 April 2020. The ongoing lockdown of 21-days to contain the Coronavirus outbreak in India has led to several competitive examinations across the country being postponed as the curfew restricts citizens from leaving their homes.
