According to Ramesh Pokhriyal, conducting JEE in more regional languages will allow students to write the exam proficiently.
The Union Education Minister, Ramesh Pokhriyal, announced on October 22 that the Joint Admission Board (JAB) will conduct the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) in more regional languages 2021 onwards. Taking to Twitter, Pokhriyal said, “In line with the vision of #NEP2020, the Joint Admission Board (JAB) of #JEE (Main) has decided to conduct the JEE (Main) examination in more regional languages of India.”
The decision to add more regional languages was taken keeping in view the features of the new National Education Policy (NEP), which largely focuses on promoting mother tongue/regional languages in primary school education.
According to Pokhriyal, conducting JEE in more regional languages will allow students to write the exam proficiently. But the number or names of the additional languages have not been announced yet.
The examination will also be conducted in regional languages where entry to State Engineering Colleges is decided based on an examination (conducted in regional language). State language of States who admit students based on the #JEE(Main) will also be included under this.— Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank (@DrRPNishank) October 22, 2020
