Hold JEE Main, NEET exams in September - Gujarat Parents Association moves Supreme Court

Hold JEE Main, NEET exams in September – Gujarat Parents Association moves Supreme Court. The Gujarat Parents Association has moved the Supreme Court, looking for directions to the National Testing Agency (NTA) to conduct the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) and National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) in September as the revised schedule notifies.

The Petition states that, “These exams are so important that they determine students’ career and also the entire life. As such, the Respondent Authorities must take into consideration as a relevant factor, the fact that any further deferment of the examination will further add to the stress levels of the students resulting in further traumatising the students with the uncertainty of their future and thereby severely impacting their academic performance in the ultimate examination to be held in future”.

The plea states that the process of admission is unique in as much as it contemplates a 3-tier structure to be followed in a statutorily regulated time-frame.

JEE is scheduled to be held from September 1 to 6 and NEET is slated for September 13. The JEE score is the basis for admission to engineering institutes like the National Institute of Technology and Indian Institute of Technology. Similarly, admission to medical and dental undergraduate courses is through NEET.

Earlier eleven students filed a plea before the top court. They had claimed that conducting JEE and NEET during such a perilous time will put lives of lakhs of young students in danger and had, therefore, sought directions to be issued to NTA to hold JEE and NEET after normalcy was restored post Covid-19 crisis.
