Fake News Claims
The fake notice claimed that the NTA has removed the 75% criterion to appear in the exam for candidates and the JEE Main exam dates for the April session 2023 will be notified soon by NTA. However, there is no such official notification issued by the National Testing Agency on the postponement or the scrapping of JEE Mains 2023 75% rule.
Meanwhile, the Bombay High Court will hear a petition seeking postponement of the engineering entrance exam today January 10, 2023. MP Omprakash Bhupalsinh in an official letter urged Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan to relax the eligibility criteria for the JEE Main 2023. He also requested the Union Education Minister to give allowance to all students who passed Class 12 in the year 2020 and 2021 to appear in the entrance exam.
As requests for withdrawing the 75% criteria for droppers and postponing the JEE Main January 2023 attempt were flooded everywhere on the Twitter handles, it is to be stated that the National Testing Agency (NTA) has not announced any changes in the JEE Main exam dates of relaxation in criteria. According to public notice, the JEE Main 2023 first attempt is scheduled to begin on January 24, 2023. The deadline for submitting the application forms for the first session is January 12, 2023.
