Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a petition seeking postponement of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET)

The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed an application seeking to postpone the National Eligibility and Entrance Test (JET) and the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) to be held in September 2020. The postponement would endanger students’ careers, it said. The Supreme Court dismissed the application, saying that the authorities were confident that the tests would be conducted with adequate precautions.

“The student’s career will not be endangered for too long,” the court said, adding that the authorities are confident that the tests will take place with adequate precautions.

JEE Main will be held September 1 to 6 and NEET on September 13. JEE Advanced September 27th. The tests were postponed twice this year due to the coronavirus epidemic, however, forcing students to postpone further.

More than 9 lakhs have applied for JEE Main, while about 16 lakh people have registered for NEET. Candidates were given several options to choose the nearest exam center. The NTA claims the number of testing centers to ensure student safety.
