JEE Main 2020: Over 3.40 lakh candidates appear for exam in 3 days

The Central government has released the data of JEE Main 2020 which shows over 3.40 lakh students appearing for exams across India in three days from September 1 to 3.

This data assumes significance at a time when the Supreme Court is set to hear review petition today, September 4, 2020, seeking postponement of JEE Main, NEET exams due to corona pandemic.

UMHRD minister Ramesh Pokhriyal released this data in support of central government's claim that students are keen to take JEE Main exam despite corona pandemic and students are not in favour of postponement of exams as demanded by some quarters and the huge attendance for JEE Main in three days is a proof for this.
