This year, the IIT Bombay has allowed the aspirants who couldn’t appear for the JEE Advanced previously due to Covid-19 to reappear directly. However, there are fixed attempts to clear the exam. Hence, one should be aware of how many attempts for JEE Advanced are allowed so you can prepare accordingly.
