There is good news for Punjab public school students, as the National Testing Authority (NTA) has decided to take the joint (main) entrance exam in more regional languages, including Punjab, starting next year.
The secretary has issued a letter in this regard and it has been said that interested students from class 12 can take the competitive exam in Punjabi. The exam will take place in four sessions from February to May 2021.
This step from the NTA will help many Punjab students to take this competitive exam in their native language. In order to get the maximum number of students from class 12 to appear in the competitive exam, the secretary of school education, Krishan Kumar, ordered the principals to inform students about the science stream to apply for the exam online.
The exam, which is also a JEE-Advanced eligibility test for admission to IITs, is currently offered in English, Hindi and Gujarati. Students will have the option of taking the test in Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi, Malayalam, Hate, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu.
District education official Rajinder Kaur Elementary, which handles the DEO High School additional charge, said: “Science mentors have been asked to motivate students to take this exam, which will allow them to earn admission to IITs “.
This year, 104 public school students passed the Ludhiana JEE Main and more than 600 took the exam in January and September. Of those, 44 students were from a worthy school run by the state government.
Varinder Pathak, Government Senior High School Chemistry Teacher, Multi-Purpose, said: “This government step will help many students to perform better on the competitive exam, as several students who had a phobia of English did not appear in the exam”.
