The National Testing Agency (NTA) has announced that the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) (Main) will take place September 1-6 and the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) (UG) will take place on September 13th.
“Today a lot of students are saying something. The Indian government needs to listen to the student Ke Mann Ki Baat about NEET and JEE exams and come to an acceptable solution,” the congress director said in a tweet.
His response comes amid calls from students and parents to postpone entrance exams amid the surge in Covid-19 cases.
On Saturday, the chairman of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Delhi’s education minister Manish Sisodia also urged the central government to cancel JEE and NEET. “The central government is playing with the lives of millions of students on behalf of JEE-NEET. My request to the center is to cancel both exams immediately and to make alternative admission arrangements this year. At this time of unprecedented crisis a unprecedented move to a solution, “tweeted Sisodia. On August 17, the Supreme Court dismissed a petition to postpone NEET and JEE due to take place in September 2020.
