Last month the Ministry of Education Thursday announced that the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main examinations will be conducted in more regional Indian languages. The announcement was made by Union Education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal who said that the decision was made in line with the vision of National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. Pokhriyal also said that the decision was taken after Prime Minister Narendra Modi pointed out that top-scoring countries in PISA examination use mother tongue as a medium of instruction. “The decision of JAB will help students comprehend questions better and score higher,” the minister said in another tweet. Currently, the JEE Main examinations are conducted in only three languages – English, Hindi, and Gujarati.
