JEE & NEET 2020 : HRD Ministry Seeks Report from NTA on Holding Exams

The HRD Ministry has asked the National Testing Agency (NTA) to submit recommendations on holding the engineering and medical entrance examination, JEE Mains and NEET 2020.


NTA has been asked by the Human Resource Development Ministry to look into the prevailing COVID-19 situation as well as at requests received from students and parents appearing for JEE and NEET and submit their recommendation by Friday, 3 July.

"Looking at the prevailing circumstances and requests received from students appearing for JEE and NEET examinations, a committee consisting of @DG_NTA and other experts has been advised to review the situation and submit its recommendations to @HRDMinistry latest by tomorrow," the education minister has tweeted.
JEE Main and NEET exams are scheduled to be held on 18-23 July and 26 July, respectively.

With COVID-19 cases still rising in India, both ICSE and CBSE board examinations have been cancelled or made optional for students for when the situation normalizes. Students have been flooding Twitter with the "#RipNTA" to bring attention to the two major entrance exams scheduled for July.
