The Supreme Court has struck down petitions seeking adjournment of JEE 2020 and NEET 2020 examinations. The Supreme Court commented that postponing the exams would jeopardize the careers of the students. It is learned that 11 students have approached the Supreme Court against the National Testing Agency for postponing the Joint Entrance Exam-JEE 2020, National Eligibility Entrance Test-NEET 2020 to be held in September in view of the corona virus epidemic.
These petitions have been heard several times. However, the apex court ruled that postponing the exams could jeopardize students’ careers. Justice Arun Mishra commented that students would miss the academic year if the exams were not conducted. Kovid, however, said that life should continue under 19 conditions and how can the tests be stopped.
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, who appeared before the Supreme Court on behalf of the National Testing Agency-NTA, explained that all necessary precautions would be taken to conduct the test. The exams will be held as per the schedule as the Supreme Court has struck down the petitions filed seeking adjournment of the examination.
It is learned that if NEET is conducted for admissions in medical colleges, JEE Mains will be conducted for admissions in Engineering Institutes. The JEE Main 2020 and Neat 2020 exams will be held across the country from September 1 to 6 and September 13 as per the previously announced schedule.
