New Delhi: NTA NEET Exam 2020 that was scheduled to be held on 3rd May has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
NEET is an undergraduate level exam that is conducted to streamline the process of admission of students in MBBS and BDS courses.
Union Minister for Human Resource Development, Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, tweeted out the update about the NEET exam on Twitter.
He twitted, “Since Parents and Students have to travel to different examination centers, to avoid any inconvenience to them, I have directed National Testing Agency @DG_NTA to postpone NEET (UG) 2020 and JEE(Main) till last week of May. “
The Admit cards of NEET that were going to be released on the 27th March 2020 will be rescheduled only after the 15th of April.
All the candidates who are going to appear in the NEET exam 2020 are also being informed about the same through emails.
This decision came as an effect of the lockdown situation that is going on across India as a measure to prevent the spread of the COVID-19.
The decision came after a meeting between the senior officials and the ministries of human resource development and health and family welfare on Friday.
NTA has also advised students to keep visiting the website for regular updates and to get any information related to the exam date.
As of now, we know the NEET exam 2020 has been postponed to the last week of May. The exact date has still not been released.
The JEE Mains exam that was scheduled in the first and second weeks of April will also be postponed due to the current lockdown situation across India.
The dates of the JEE Mains exam have also not been released yet. We are expecting an update regarding the same soon.
