The Central Board of Secondary Education decided to increase capacity by creating three new centre cities to conduct the computer based JEE (Main) examination.
This has been done to facilitate the JEE (Main) candidates who have enrolled to appear in the KEAM 2013 scheduled for 22 and 23 April 2013, and hence could not opt for the 9 or the 25 April at Ernakulam , the only online examination centre in the state of Kerala due to non availability of slots.
The three new centres are Kottayam, Thiruvananthapuram and Thrissur. The candidates who have enrolled to appear in both computer based JEE (Main) Examination on 22 and 23 April 2013 at Ernakulam and KEAM 2013 , were given the choice to appear for their computer based JEE (Main)examination at any of the centres and dates given.
The candidates who wish to change , have been allowed to do so till 28 February 2013, till 5 pm.
