NSUI National Secretary Lokesh Chugh said: “When the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) began September 1, only around 65 percent of students showed up for the exam and many centers in the country reported low attendance less than 45 percent. ”
He said: “The NSUI is calling for a re-exam for those students who missed their chances to take the entrance exam because they hastily tried to run JEE and the government did not take the necessary basic precautions to allow the students Bring exam centers. ” in the midst of this pandemic, so that a vast majority of students don’t miss this academic session. ”
NSUI condemned the government’s move to conduct exams as part of the Covid-19 pandemic and condemned the imposition of JEE despite concerns and requests from the student community to postpone the exam in light of the pandemic.
“Although the government claimed that it had taken reasonable steps to ensure the smooth running of the exam and provided transportation facilities for the students, the low attendance indicates that it is the failure of authority that has prevented many students from taking the exam to appear.” “Said Chugh.
NSUI’s national president, Neeraj Kundan, had also asked the government to organize transportation for students, especially students from rural areas. Congress launched a nationwide campaign on August 28 to call for the postponement of NEET and JEE exams after the government decided to conduct exams in September.
