The decision of NTA to hold JEE Main and NEET amid COVID-19 pandemic has been opposed by many including Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh.
Amid a growing chorus for postponing the JEE and NEET in view of the pandemic, the Centre has maintained that the tests will be conducted in September as scheduled. While JEE Main is scheduled from September 1-6, NEET is planned on September 13.
The Supreme Court last week dismissed a plea seeking postponement of the two exams, saying a “precious academic year of students cannot be wasted and life has to go on”.
At least 950,000 students are expected to take the JEE (Main) at 660 centres from September 1 to 6, while nearly 1.6 million NEET candidates are likely to appear for the test at 3,842 centres on September 13.
