    UPSEE 2021- Next Year Plan

    While always in consideration, UPSEE 2021 has been scrapped. AKTU will not be conducting UPSEE from the next academic year. instead, JEE Main scores will be used for admissions in 1.40 lakh seats at 750 colleges. 

    According to Vice Chancellor of AKTU, Prof Vinat Pathak, the decision has been made to make it easier for students who had to separately prepare for UPSEE and JEE Main separately. he further added that many states have already been using JEE Main scores for admissions in respective colleges. 

    Students looking for admission in colleges in Uttar Pradesh can now focus solely on JEE Main. JEE Main is conducted twice a year- January and April. Studnets have an option to improve scores in April session if they are not satisfied with the January session scores.
