The government has decided to conduct JEE Main 2024 Four Times from February, March, April, May. National Testing Agency (NTA) conducts major examinations like JEE Main, NEET, UGC NET, etc. NTA is an autonomous body that conducts a few national-level examinations like JEE, NEET, GPAT. This decision has led to a lot of unanswered questions among some candidates. Among JEE Main candidates, one question is very common i.e. How many attempts in JEE Main? If you are also one of them then this post will help you in understanding the number of attempts in JEE Main 2024. Check the official site.

Check Eligibility For NTA JEE Main Exam

No. Of Attempts For JEE Main 2024

With the new structure of the exam under NTA, the Joint Entrance Examination Main is now taking place four times in a year (February, March, April, and May 2024). In a discussion with my friend Arun, I argued that the number of attempts is 6, keeping in mind the eligibility criteria that a candidate must have passed class 12th in 2020, 2021, or should be taking the final year examination in 2024. If this criterion is to be followed, then the number of attempts is 8 as the candidate will be able to take the exam 8 times in 3 consecutive years.

JEE Main Eligibility Criteria For Droppers

Candidates who are droppers can also fill JEE Main application form but there are some conditions. For appearing in the exam for the 2024 session, a candidate should have dropped out either in 2020 or 2021. This means if a candidate has passed the exam in 2020 then JEE Main 2024 attempt will be the last chance for him/her. On the other hand, if a candidate has qualified the exam in 2024 then the candidate is eligible for the 2024 and 2023 sessions examination. Those who had completed class 12th in 2018, 2017, or earlier, they do not fulfill the eligibility for JEE Main 2024.
