JEE Advanced 2020: IIT Delhi suggests a reduction in counselling rounds, Check details

Due to the threat posed by the coronavirus pandemic, most educational activities in the country have been undergoing some major changes. This has been done to ensure the safety of the students and the teachers. The same has been the case with JEE Advanced 2020. As per latest information, Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi (IIT Delhi) which is responsible for conducting JEE Advanced 2020, has proposed a reduction in the number of rounds of counselling for this year’s admissions. The proposal from IIT Delhi has now been forwarded to the Joint Implementation Commissioner for the approval. Recently, during a live webinar, the HRD Minister, Mr Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, announced the revised date for JEE Advanced 2020. This year, JEE Advanced 2020 will be conducted on 23rd August 2020 across the country.

Now, as and when the proposal put forth by IIT Delhi is approved by other participating institutes, then the proposal will be shared with the Central Seat Allocation Board, which is responsible for coordinating the admissions to these top institutes. Now, as all centrally funded technical institutions have the same admission process, this proposal, if accepted, will influence the admission process for all these institutes as well.

JEE Advanced 2020: Proposal to announced results soon

Along with the change in the number of rounds of counselling, IIT Delhi has proposed another change as well. IIT Delhi has suggested that the results for JEE Advanced 2020 should be declared within one week of the completion of the exams. As of now, the organising institute for JEE takes around two weeks to declare the results for the exam.

The rationale given by IIT Delhi behind both these proposals is that reduction in rounds of counselling and quicker declaration of results will save valuable time. It will then enable the participating institutes to start the classes in the first week of October 2020 for the new students.
