The COVID-19 pandemic is leaving a trail of disruption in the education space. Many exams have been postponed and many more cancelled. There is a growing demand for postponement of even the JEE Main and NEET exams for engineering and medicine, and rightfully so.
Today at 4 PM, a meeting is being held with representatives from the exam-conducting National Testing Agency (NTA), the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and, possibly, the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) too, to decide on postponement of these exams.
Union HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal has made an announcement on the conduct of the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main and National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET 2020) late evening today. The minister on Thursday announced that a committee has been set-up to review the prevailing situation of the Covid-19 pandemic and the safety of examinations which will deliberate when the much-awaited NEET and JEE tests can take place.
