Date of New Joint Engineering Test on April 7, 2013

            The first Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Mains for engineering admissions will be conducted in online and offline modes in early April 2013. A Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) release said the offline JEE (Mains) will be held on April 7 and the computer-based test later that month.
            The All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE), being replaced by JEE (Mains), is usually held on the fourth Sunday of April to give Class 12 students a breather after their board examinations. In 2013, CBSE and state board Class 12 exams finish by March-end, leaving students with just a week to prepare for the test.
