JEE Apex Board To Conduct JEE Mains And JEE Advanced Exam

JEE Apex board will now be conducting the JEE Mains and JEE Advanced exam instead of National Testing Agency (NTA).

By Topperlearning Expert 12th May, 2022 06:05 pm

According to the latest notification by the Department of Higher Education, Technical Section -1, JEE Main and JEE Advanced will now be administered by the JEE Apex Board (JAB) for the years 2022 and 2023. It will replace the authoritative position of the National Testing Agency for making the JEE Main and JEE Advanced examinations rules, policies, and regulations. The Hon'ble Education Minister has issued this notice to ensure smooth management of the JEE Main and JEE Advanced examinations.

As per the notice, the Department of Education will follow the following regulations from 6th May 2022 onwards.

● The National Testing Agency will have to provide a permanent secretariat to JEE Apex Board. Five representatives from IITs and the National Testing Agency and a senior official of the Indian Statistical Institutes (ISI) recommended by the JAB will assist the Board. The following members will now assist the JAB in their policy-making.

● The JEE Apex Board secretariat will work for the Board and the other Groups formed by the JAB. It will also be in charge of the Court Cases, Administration, Finance, RTI, and working of other departments.

● The JEE Apex Board of the IIT syllabus will take responsibility for the administration of JEE Advanced examination.

● The NTA will have to offer the financial resources and human resources as and when required by the Apex Board.

● The C-DAC will assist in back-end activities, technology-related support and others based on the requirement.

● The JEE Apex Board will follow the IIT system's transparency standards for JEE Main and Advanced.

According to the notice published earlier, the NTA scheduled the JEE Main Session 1 from 20th to 29th June and JEE Main Session 2 from 21st to 30th July. Again, the JEE Advanced was declared to be conducted on 29th August. However, the change in authority can result in a change in the examination dates. Thus, students must keep checking the official website notifications to stay updated on new regulations and policies immediately after release.

Conclusion

The decision has brought a jolt to the JEE examination operation as JEE Apex Board will replace NTA for 2022 and 2023. Nevertheless, students must continue preparing for the JEE Mains and Advanced to stay prepared for the revised examination dates (if any).
