JEE (Main) April 2020 is scheduled from September 1-6, and NEET UG 2020 exam is scheduled for September 13. These two examinations conducted by NTA are crucial for undergrad courses in engineering and medicine respectively and were postponed owing to covid pandemic. As the rescheduled dates of these draw nearer, pandemic related concerns are being voiced by a large number of aspirants and others. They want these exams to be further postponed until pandemic situation is brought under control.
Support is pouring in from several quarters to this campaign. Rajya Sabha MP and BJP leader has thrown his weight behind such chourus and requested the Prime Minister to intervene.
Author Chetan Bhagat in his tweet also advised the government to postpone the two exams until early 2021.
A surprise support came from teenage Climate and environmental activist, Greta Thunberg
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Bangerjee has already written to the PM to this effect and so has Aaditya Thackeray. http://www.curriculum-magazine.com/aaditya-thackeray-suggests-to-pm-january-21-as-academic-year/
