New Delhi, Mar 27: In view of the hardships faced by the parents and the students due to coronavirus disease (COVID-19) epidemic, the National Testing Agency (NTA) has postponed the ensuing NEET (UG) May 2020 examination scheduled to be held on May 3, 2020.
“We are hopeful that we would get back to normal situation relatively soon; but for now, various concerned Ministries and Examination Boards are examining the scenario to evaluate the situation that may necessitate any change in the schedule. As of now the examination is proposed to be held in the last week on May 2020. Exact date will be announced later on after assessing the situation,” said NTA Director General Dr Vineet Joshi in a letter.
Accordingly, the admit cards for the examination which were to be issued on March 27 will now be issued later on after assessing the situation after April 15 only.
“We understand that academic calendar and schedule is important, but equally important is well being of every citizen including students,” Dr Joshi further added.
The NTA would expect students and parents to not worry about the Examination. Moreover, parents are requested to help young students utilize this time for preparing for the Examination and focus on critical concepts in order to close learning gaps if any. NTA would keep students updated about the latest developments and would inform about changes with ample time.
