JEE Main 2024: The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main registration is underway and will continue till November 30, 2023. The engineering entrance exam, JEE Main, is set to be held in two phases. The first is set to be held from January 24 and February 1, 2024, while the next session will be held between April 1 and April 15.
The NTA has introduced a few changes in JEE Main 2024. From changing the host website address to the syllabus, these are the changes in the engineering entrance exam:
JEE Main New Website
The NTA has changed the host website address of JEE Main 2024. Now the official JEE Main website is jeemain.nta.ac.in. Earlier, it was jeemain.nta.nic.in. The new jeemain.nta.ac.in website also has a chatbox for assisting the students.
The new JEE Main website will make all information including JEE Main dates, notification, admit cards and results available.
Registration through ABC, DigiLocker
During JEE Main 2024 registration, the candidate has to create a Digi Locker account through the NAD portal or an Academic Bank of Credits ID (ABC ID). Those candidates who do not wish to register through the Digi Locker / ABC ID, will be required to report one hour prior to the entry time at the examination centre on the day of the examination.
Candidates can also use their passport number, PAN Card number or Aadhaar enrollment number to register for JEE Main. However, registering with these would require them to reach the exam centre early.
Number Of Exam Cities
The number of JEE Main 2024 exam cities has decreased to 300 in India as compared to 304 exam centre cities last year.
JEE Main 2024 Syllabus
The JEE Main 2024 syllabus has also been revised this year. While some chapters have been removed completely from this year’s JEE Main syllabus, a few sub-topics have been removed.
JEE Main Application Fee
The NTA has also decreased the JEE Main application fee. Last year, the male candidates belonging to the General, General-EWS and OBC (NCL) categories had to pay Rs 1,000 as application fee and female candidates under these categories had to pay Rs 800. Now NTA has reduced the General-EWS and OBC NCL application fee for the male candidates. The JEE Main 2024 application fee is Rs 900 for the male candidates belonging to the General-EWS and OBC NCL categories.
