During the January exam of JEE Main 2019, it is observed that some candidates abroad reported as per the local time of cities at their allotted examination centres, stated by the national testing agency (NTA). But, they were supposed to report at the venue as per the Indian Standard Time (IST) which was Indicated on the JEE Main Admit Card. As a result such candidates could not appear in the JEE Main 2019 January Exam. To resolve this issue, the national testing agency has released an important notice for abroad candidates at jeemain.nic.in for JEE Main 2019 April exam.
