    As per the latest reports, a whopping majority of more than 10 lakh candidates have downloaded JEE Main, and NEET Admit Cards so far. This majority only indicates the candidates’ willingness to write the examination and not let the precious academic year go in vain.

    On Wednesday, Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal’ Nishank’, the Union Education Minister, said in a video that a large number of candidates and parents are in favour of entrance examinations and that the examinations are being conducted on student’s demand. The reply came as a move of upholding the Supreme Court’s decision to conduct the examinations on set dates.

    What Now?

    As of now, the Supreme Court’s decision stands binding for the students and their respective states. However, protests against the verdict have gained momentum in the past few days. Candidates are still filing petitions and raising slogans on social media platforms.

    The NEET 2020 admit cards were released on 26 August 2020, while the JEE Main 2020 admit cards were released on 17 August 2020. NTA has further released a notification for the JEE Advanced exam, including the list of important dates. NTA further said that there would be no foreign centres for the JEE Advanced exam, keeping in mind the restrictions levied on international travel.

    JEE Main examination is scheduled from 1 September to 6 September 2020, while NEET will be conducted on 13 September 2020. Candidates are downloading the hall tickets, and the majority of the hall tickets have been downloaded. In any case, candidates will have to follow the Supreme Court’s verdict if they want to get admission for the current academic year.
