NTA wants to conduct JEE Main January Session examination on its usual schedule however they also mention time problems and board examination of participating candidates.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>If such thing happens then it is possible that NTA release JEE Main 2021 January session Application Form in the Month of October or November 2020 and possible examination will get held in the month of February 2021.

Experts say that while there is no 'right' optional for the examination in general, there is always a right optional for the candidate—and the choice has a major impact on the total score of the candidate.</p> <p>Familiarity with the list of optional subjects and syllabus, and the candidate's area of interest are important while taking the decision, but there are also other variables to be considered seriously here. To help candidates in their choices and preparation, Manorama Yearbook Online is organising a free webinar on ‘Strategies for Choosing Optional Subjects’ on July 11, from 3pm to 4pm.</p> <p>The session, the fifth in the series of webinars hosted by YB Online, will be presented by Anupama TV IAS, director of Kerala State Department of Women and Child Development.</p> <p>To register, visit&nbsp;<a href="https://bit.ly/2Z20sDw"><u>https://bit.ly/2Z20sDw</u></a>&nbsp;or dial 8086654456.</p> <p><b>About Manorama Yearbook Online</b></p> <p>Manorama Yearbook Online is a platform exclusively for UPSC aspirants.
