Jalandhar, February 23

As the first attempt of JEE Main is to commence in the city from Wednesday, Class XII students (non-medical) are set to appear in the exam to be conducted by the National Testing Agency.

Since the exam is to be held in online mode, centres have been set up at places where there are several computer terminals. In Jalandhar, Saffron Mall, which houses the testing centre for Tata Consultancy, is the only centre which has the capacity for seating 1,000 students. One centre each has been set up in Phagwara, Hoshiarpur and Amritsar.

JEE coordinator in Jalandhar and Hoshiarpur, Principal Deepa Dogra of Cambridge School, said, “Since the JEE Main has been split into four chances, there will be lesser number of candidates which will be known only after the exam gets conducted. Exams will be held in two shifts for the next three days. We will be spacing them out properly. Today, candidates for B.Arch appeared for the entrance”.

Deepak Sharma, a parent, said, “My son is to appear for the test day after. The exam is to start at 9 am but we have been called at 8:20 am so that students can be sent in maintaining proper social distancing.” — TNS
