JEE Main 2021 official notification for January session exams is likely to be announced shortly. However, many students and parents are confused if JEE Main 2021 will be held once or twice. 

NTA holds the national-level entrance exam twice, that is in January and April every year. Although with the delay in the 2020 academic session, there have been speculations that holding the first phase of the JEE Main 2021 seems uncertain.

According to CBSE 2021 schedule for practical exams, there are chances that the Class 12th exams will be concluded by April or May. Due to this, holding JEE Main 2021 twice might be possible as of now. The practical exams for CBSE will tentatively take place from January 1 to February 08, 2021.
