Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’, in his live webinar on December 10, hinted that there may be changes in the way questions are framed for JEE Main 2021. The changes were being discussed to facilitate those students who have studied under different state boards that may have altered their syllabi due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. So, the National Testing Agency (NTA) has framed the questions in a way that would cover both the boards that have reduced their syllabus and those that haven’t.

To aid the aspirants in these difficult times, NTA has decided that the question papers of JEE Main exam will have choices. Candidates will now have 30 questions in each subject, divided into two sections – Section A and Section B having 20 questions and 10 questions respectively. Further, the candidates will have to answer only 5 out of 10 questions from Section B. However, the total number of questions to be attempted will remain the same as before, i.e., 25 questions in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics each.
