Long and full academic year cannot be wasted, keeping this in mind the government has decided to conduct; this National Eligibility-Cum Entrance Test and Joint Entrance Exam (Mains) 2020 exams as per the schedule i.e. in the first week of September 2020”.

They also state that in their opinion, the pandemic is really considerable but that doesn’t mean that life should be put on a hold. The career of the students cannot be left stagnant for a long time. A whole academic year cannot just go in waste.

They also added that the examination will be held and all the precautions as directed by the ministry of health and family welfare will be taken into consideration. And, there is no space for the further postponement of the exams.

This is one of the bold decisions made by the Indian government as there were several people and organizations against this decision of the government to hold NEET and JEE Mains examination 2020.

These are the guidelines laid by the ministry of health and family welfare:

  • Social distancing will be observed during the exams.
  • Mask and Gloves will be distributed at the examination center.
  • Thermal screening and Sanitization will be done before allowing the candidate to enter the examination hall.

On 13th September the admit cards for the NEET (UG) will be released. Plus, out of the total 15, 97,433 candidates; 99.87% of candidates are given their examination centers in the city of their first preference. This would help them in traveling safe as they won’t be needed to travel to a different city; which may cause a larger exposure to the COVID virus. Hence decreasing the risk of contracting the virus.

The admit cards for the JEE (Main) are already released by the National Testing Agency (NTA) and the exam is going to happen from 1-6 September.
