NEET 2020: NTA likely to release NEET Admit Card today. Here's how to download it
The agencies decision to conduct NEET, JEE and other entrances in September has created a lot of outcry among the students in the country
The National Testing Agency, the government body which conducts entrance examinations including JEE and NEET is likely to release the admit cards for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test today. The exam is set to be held on September 13 from 2 pm to 5 pm.
Even though the examination date was postponed initially, owing to the rise in COVID cases, the NTA was given the approval to go ahead with the examination, on August 17, by the Supreme Court. The top court on that day had dismissed a plea that sought a postponement of NEET, along with JEE.
The NTA has now asked the students and parents to keep checking its website ntaneet.nic.in for further information. The agency will also inform the candidate about their allotment of the city in advance. The NTA has also announced the dates of various entrance examinations, today. "Keeping in view the academic interest of large number of students, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has agreed to the proposal of MHRD for conducting various entrance examinations in the month of September 2020," reads its circular.
At the same time, student bodies have called for a virtual protest on Twitter, against the conduct of examinations during the pandemic. With a daily increase of more than 69,000 cases, India has more than 2.9 million COVID cases.
