Jawaharlal Nehru University Vice Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar said Wednesday that the joint entrance examination (JEE) and national aptitude test (NEET) exams should be held as planned in September to keep an eye on the future of students.
“Given the future of students, I firmly believe that the JEE and NEET exams should take place in September as planned. These two exams have been postponed twice in the past few months. The National Testing Agency (NTA), which runs these two exams, has made it very clear that they have increased the number of test centers and established standard operating protocols that students can follow to protect themselves in the test centers. Jagadish said.
“For example, recently in Goa 19,000 high school and high school students successfully passed their exams. The state entrance test for Goa was also successfully carried out, ”he added.
He said during these times when students are preparing for the entrance test they are already concerned. “We shouldn’t worry any more if we insist on postponing these entrance exams. When you see the number of students who have downloaded the admission cards from the portal, it is very clear that a large number of students want to write these entrance exams, ”said Kumar.
He said the educational institutions are ready to accept a new group of students and continue with their academic programs.
“I fully agree with the Supreme Court’s views that life should go on and that students cannot waste a whole year. We all need to make sure that both JEE and NEET take place on schedule in September, ”he added.
