NEET UG, JEE Main Exam Dates: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in the country, it has become almost impossible for hundreds of people to sustain their day to day life.

In India, the pandemic has started rising and is expected to reach on the peak within a few days or month.

In such a situation, it has become difficult to conduct NEET UG, JEE main exams that are likely to be conducted from the next month.

one of the reasons why the government has to push back the dates of the commencements of the entrance tests for the admission to medical and engineering courses is due to the pressure from the students and parents.

A lot of chaos is currently being built not only to analyse the situation but also to conduct examination. Even if NEET UG, JEE main exams are to be conducted on their scheduled dates, it would become difficult under the current pandemic that most of the students and parents are worried.

After a constant pressure from the students, the government is thinking to take the right step forward as it is the question of the career of hundreds of students.

At the same time, the government is also to ensure the health of each citizen of the country as well.

For now, the update says that the HRD Ministry is in the consultation with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare for the postponement of NEET UG exam.

Earlier, a petition was filed in the Supreme Court by some parents to cancel the pending class XII Board exam conducted by CBSE.

The center is likely to take the appropriate action after Supreme Court gives its verdict on this today. You can always find the updated information regarding this on govt job hiring page.

Right now, the problem is growing bigger, especially after the dates of the NEET UG JEE main exam dates are approaching fast.

This is the reason why the parents are demanding to postpone the dates of these exams due the ongoing pandemic situation.
