HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal on Tuesday reassured the students who appeared in both the JEE Main and NDA exams that they shouldn’t worry, even if the dates of their two exams don’t match. On Twitter, the HRD minister informed the students, who appear on both the JEE network and the NDA, that the matter has been investigated and that the students do not have to worry.
“I have received explanations from many students about the collision of the data from #JEEMain with #NDA. The matter has been investigated. Students who appear in JEE (Main) and could not update to appear in the NDA exam scheduled for September 6th should not worry. @DG_NTA will ensure that the two exams do not conflict for candidates who appear in both exams, ”tweeted HRD Minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal.
