Telangana bags the top spot with 8 candidates scoring 100 percentile. Top scoring 2.45 lakh candidates will be eligible to appear for the JEE-Advanced exam, which is scheduled to take place on September 27.
The Union Health Ministry has declared that symptomatic students will not be allowed to take exams. Universities are expected to make provisions for such students to appear for exams later, once they are declared asymptomatic.
Increasing the number of examination centres, alternate seating plans, fewer candidates per room and staggered entry and exit are among the steps the National Testing Agency has taken for safely conducting JEE Mains.
