He also said an alternate method of approval should be used this year and the tests should not be conducted.
On Friday, officials from the Ministry of Education announced that the joint entrance examination (main examination) and the national entrance examination (NEET-UG) would be held in September as planned.
“The government is playing with the lives of student lakhs on behalf of JEE and NEET. I appeal to the centre’s government to cancel both exams immediately and introduce an alternate admissions process,” Sisodia tweeted.
“To think that just taking an exam is a way out of approval is an impractical and conservative thought. If other countries can get approval through methods other than exams, why can’t India do so,” he said.
Several students and parents called for entrance exams to be postponed further amid increasing coronavirus cases.
The Supreme Court on Monday rejected a motion to postpone the April 2020 JEE (Main) and NEET undergraduate exams, which are said to be wasted in September “and life must go on.”
The JEE (Main) is expected to take place between September 1st and 6th, the JEE (Advanced) on September 27th. NEET takes place on September 13th.
