The postponement of the JEE Main 2021 April session final week due to the second wave of coronavirus has left a piece of college students in a quandary. Two sessions of JEE Main – one in February and the opposite in March – have already been carried out. A complete of 6,19,638 and 6,52,627 candidates had registered for February and March 2021 periods, respectively.
Most college students who took their first shot on the entrance exam carried out through the first quarter of 2021, nevertheless, appear to be relieved for a number of causes.
Utkarsh Singh, 17, from Madhya Pradesh, appeared for each February and March periods. His greatest of two scores was 99.96 percentile.
“Board exams have also been rescheduled and we are not sure under which circumstance we will have to take these exams. To appear for JEE Main amid all this confusion would have added to the pressure and hampered my performance. Since I am satisfied with my performance, I can focus completely on JEE Advanced preparations,” stated Utkarsh.
Shivashish Sharma,18, agrees and says that ready indefinitely for the exam schedule to launch leads to loss of motivation. He too appeared for each the periods and achieved 99.88 percentile.
“Though I will appear for all the four sessions, I am mentally relieved because I am confident of qualifying for JEE Advanced with the score I achieved. The major cause of concern is for those who were only eyeing the April session,” stated Shivashish, who’s a category 12 scholar at Pragati Public School, Delhi.
On the opposite hand, some candidates really feel that college students who’re planning to give their greatest shot in April can have issues working of their favour.
Shashank Shah, a category 12 scholar of Paramount International School, Delhi, believes that such college students will get extra time to put together and carry out higher.
“Since the April session and board exams are already postponed, students have a lot of time to master the concepts, practice more and revise all the topics multiple times. These students will have an advantage as class 12 classes have also been concluded and they can solely focus on entrance exam preparations. Preparing for board exams will also brush up their understanding for JEE Main,” provides Shashank, whose greatest of two scores is 75 percentile.
Amit Ahuja, profession counsellor, Allen Career Institute, Kota, says, “Aspirants put their efforts throughout the year or even a couple of years to prepare for JEE Main. Any extra time due to postponement does not impact the performance of diligent candidates. However, those who did not secure high marks can take this time to boost their preparations to achieve the desired score in April or May sessions.”
Gargi Jain, 18, from Vidisha district in Madhya Pradesh, feels that college students can have too many issues to deal with and it might probably adversely have an effect on their efficiency.
“Boards, JEE Main and JEE Advanced, candidates will have to appear for all these exams when the global pandemic is at its peak. Along with academics, students will also have a lot of psychological pressure,” she provides.
