Applicants of Indian Army Tes 46 2021 should note that Joint Entrance Exam Main is held by National Testing Agency every year and in the year 2021 NTA will conduct the exam in four sessions instead of two just for the candidates to improve their scores in the multiple chances in the mindset of the pandemic situation.

First two sessions have already been conducted in February and March 2021 and therefore TES 46 aspirants still have a chance to appear and clear the JEE Mains exam in the upcoming two sessions as April and May session was postponed by NTA because of the Covid - 19 Pandemic.
