New Delhi, Feb 5, 2024: The National Testing Agency (NTA) on Sunday announced that applications for the second edition of the engineering entrance exam JEE-Main are now open and will remain open until March 2.

The exam is scheduled to take place from April 4 to 15.

For candidates who have already applied and paid the examination fee for JEE (Main) – 2024 Session 1 and wish to appear for Session 2, they are required to log in using their previous application number and password from Session 1. They will then be able to choose the paper, medium of the examination, state code of eligibility, cities for the second session, provide educational qualification details, and pay the examination fees,” said Sadhna Parashar, Senior Director (Exams) at the National Testing Agency.

For candidates who have not applied previously, they need to apply again according to the schedule provided.

The first edition of JEE-Main concluded earlier this week with a turnout of 95.8% of the total candidates for Paper 1 (BE/BTech), which is one of the highest turnouts since the NTA started conducting the test.

The exam was held in 13 languages and in 21 cities outside of India, including Abu Dhabi, Hong Kong, and Oslo, where the exam was held for the first time.

Admissions to centrally funded technical institutions such as the NITs and IIITs are based on the JEE (Main) score. The top 20% of the merit list become eligible to sit for the JEE (Advanced), the entrance test for the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs).
