 JEE Mains 2024: Updated Syllabus and Online Application Forms Released!

Are you an aspiring engineer, architect, or urban planner in India? 

Well, the National Testing Agency (NTA) has exciting news for you regarding the JEE Main 2024.

With the latest scoop on JEE Main 2024, let's delve into the essential details and information regarding this highly anticipated examination.

A Two-Session Affair

For the academic session 2024-25, JEE Main 2024 is planned to be held in two sessions: Session 1 (January 2024) and Session 2 (April 2024). This approach gives candidates more flexibility and opportunities to ace the exam.

Choice of Exam Sessions

Candidates have the flexibility to apply for either one session or both sessions (Session 1 and Session 2 of 2024) and pay the examination fee accordingly. To clarify, if a candidate intends to appear for Session 1 only, they are required to pay the examination fee solely for Session 1 during the current application period.

Should a candidate wish to participate in both sessions (Session 1 and Session 2), they can apply for Session 1 as mentioned earlier.

For Session 2 (scheduled for April 2024), the application window will reopen at a later date, as specified in the Information Bulletin.

Additionally, candidates will receive a separate notification through a Public Notice when the application window for Session 2 becomes available. This approach provides candidates with the flexibility to choose the sessions that suit their preferences and readiness.

Multilingual Examination

JEE Main 2024 is more inclusive than ever. It's being conducted in a total of 13 languages, including English, Hindi, Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Odia, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu. This move ensures that students from diverse linguistic backgrounds can comfortably participate.
