A special registration drive held by the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE Mains) usually held in May, received applications from about 200000 students from all over India who have held off on their plans to study abroad India. With COVID 19 baffling the foreign universities, many aspiring engineers see themselves abandoned academically. And so, JEE Mains seems to be the best option right here at home, in India. The union human resource department stated that a very large number of parents and students have sent in requests for admissions amidst the deadline. It is ample clear that the JEE Mains have been given priority over admissions in universities abroad, thanks to the pandemic situation and the sheer uncertainty of it all.
This has certainly delighted officials and colleges as many aspiring students want to get into provincial colleges and universities and given up the option of studying abroad in favour of giving JEE Mains to remain in India instead. NTA director stated that by this time students would have already finalized their courses COVID 19 situations were a bit sluggish in the start and the students assumed that they could begin their higher studies by September of 2020. But now they prefer enrolling into engineering schools in India itself and so the opportunity to register into JEE Mains was opened all over again. Such a unique situation made authorities reconsider happily since more students will pass out from their own country, that is India. This also gives the country an opportunity to save its foreign exchange. In fact, a number of resources and portals have also made free study material available online so that students can also prepare for these kinds of exams that have a lot of competition involved.
