Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Joint Entrance Examination Advanced, or JEE Advanced 2020 will not be conducted in foreign examination centres, an official statement by the Indian Institute of Delhi said.
“Due to the current restrictions imposed on foreign travel and visa issuance, it is decided not to conduct JEE Advanced 2020 in foreign centres,” the statement stated and added, “All eligible candidates staying abroad may select their preferred choices from the list of exam cities in India for taking JEE Advanced 2020”.
JEE Advanced 2020 is scheduled to be held in September. Students, concerned about health and safety amidst rising number of COVID-19 cases, have been demanding a further postponement of engineering and medical entrance exams, including JEE Advanced 2020.
However, the authorities have not announced any change in the exam schedule. JEE Advanced is likely to be conducted on September 27, this year.
