IIT JEE 2013 exam date forecast:
Some of you may be appearing in IIT-JEE 2013 - YES, you can appear in IIT-JEE only twice, that too in consecutive years. To be able to appear in JEE 2013, you must have appeared in JEE for the first time in 2013 or must have appeared in it only once before - in IIT-JEE 2012.

To help you know about the IIT JEE 2013 exam date in advance, I had carried out a trend analysis of IIT JEE exam dates for last 3 years from JEE 2010 to JEE 2012. I find that almost all of the dates (date of notification, form submission dates, exam dates & result dates) are fairly predictable. From the data given below, you can find exam dates of IIT JEE 2013:
IIT JEE 2013 Exam Date
As you can find from above JEE dates, the notification for IIT JEE comes out in the last week of October/First week of November. The JEE form becomes available from first week of November and the last date of form submission is sometime in the middle of December. Date of JEE Exam is always on the second Sunday of April while the result is declared in the last week of May.

Keeping these exam date trends in mind, following date for IIT JEE 2013 is forecasted:
Date of IIT JEE 2013 notification: 20/10/2012 (Sat)
Last date of receipt of IIT JEE 2013 completed form: 20/12/2012 (Thurs)
Date of IIT JEE 2013 Exam: 14/04/2013 (Sun)
Using the same analysis, you can also find the date of IIT JEE 2014.

Kindly note that above are only forecasted dates to help you know about the schedule of IIT JEE approximately. Nearer notification date (say from last week of October), please check on the IIT Websites (say this IITD JEE website) and also subscribe to leading national dailies and Employment news/rozgar samachar.

As I told you, I would look out for more info/prep materials for IIT JEE 2012 and post the same in this blog as and when I find them. So keep visiting me!
