Further Details on Exam Centres

• Mode of exam:

There are 113 centres for taking the JEE Main exam in India and abroad. The above-mentioned JEE Main exam centres conduct the exam in both online and offline modes. While all the centres in India have the option of taking the exam in pen and paper-based mode as well as computer-based mode, the centres abroad do not have the option of pen and paper or offline mode, at least for Paper 1. In Colombo, Singapore, and Kathmandu centres, Paper 2 can be taken in pen and paper mode.

• The medium of exam:

Although all JEE Main exam centres have the options of English and Hindi as mediums of the exam, there is an additional option of Gujarati medium in test centre cities in Gujarat, Dadra and Nagar Haveli, and Daman and Diu.

• New additions and deletions:

While a few JEE Main exam centres were not present in this list over the last years, there are some that have also been removed from the previous lists. This year, there is an addition of one foreign test centre in Dhaka and one in India in Kota. Last year, there were 132 test centres in total but these are reduced to 113 this year.

• Centre selection:

Candidates have to choose their preferred JEE Main exam centres right when they fill the application form for taking the exam. During the form filling process, they can give four choices. However, they will only be allocated one centre. CBSE usually allocates a centre according to a candidate’s preference but has the authority to allot a different centre in a nearby town in unavoidable circumstances. Candidates also have to provide their preferred mode of the exam so they can be allocated the right centre.

Please note that after submitting your form, you will not be able to request a change of centre. Thus, we advise you to select your preferences carefully out of apt JEE Main exam centres. You may select your first preference as the centre that is nearest to your location so there is no delay reaching the centre on the exam day. It is also helpful to visit and check your centre in advance to avoid any delay reaching the centre or any last-minute confusion.

Finally, you must check the exam date, which may differ because of your chosen mode of exam. As per the latest available information, the pen and paper-based exam will be conducted on April 2, 2017, while the computer-based exam will be held on April 8 and 9, 2017. The final allocated JEE Main exam centres with venue details will be mentioned on the admit cards of students. The admit cards will be available online for download from the second week of March 2017.
