The IIT entrance exam – JEE Advanced – will be held on July 3, informed Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay – the exam organizing institute. The registration process for the same will begin on June 8 which means the JEE Main results will be announced before the same. Thus, it is very likely that for JEE Main only two attempts – March and May – will be held. The National Testing Agency (NTA) has launched a new website for JEE Mains, however, the official exam dates are not out yet. Those who obtain the top 2.5 lakh rank in JEE Main will be eligible to take JEE Advanced.
