Hello, The window will open and you will be able to correct some fields. To help you, I am attaching a link that will give you information in detail about various aspects of correction and correction window that is provided by NTA to applicants. https://www.shiksha.com/engineering/articles/jee-ma...Hello, The window will open and you will be able to correct some fields. To help you, I am attaching a link that will give you information in detail about various aspects of correction and correction window that is provided by NTA to applicants. https://www.shiksha.com/engineering/articles/jee-main-correction-blogId-19439
Some fields of data are not correctable but some are. When the window opens, NTA will invariably announce it via news items in different newspapers about the same. You then need to log in using your existing id/ pw and go ahead with correction. It's very simple and user-friendly utility and I am sure that you will be able to effect changes they you desire. Best wishes to you.
