The reason for the dip in JEE Main registrations has been attributed to the increasing difficulty level of JEE Main as compared to state level tests, students increasing awareness and interest towards other programmes like management and law.

According to the official data, in 2014, a total of 13,56,000 candidates had applied for JEE Main, while in 2015, only 13,04,217 had registered for the national level test.
