To answer all the primordial queries regarding the JEE, NEET, and Board exam dates, the Union Education Minister, Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ was to hold a live stream on 3 December 2020. However, the live session has been postponed and will be held on 10 December 2020.
The Union Education Minister tweeted,
“Students, we know you have tons of questions related to upcoming competitive/board exams! In order to make sure that we cover most of your concerns, we have decided to extend the date of the webinar to Dec 10. Till then keep sharing your concerns using #EducationMinisterGoesLive!”
With the current academic session coming to a turn and the new academic session in line, many students, as well as the stakeholders, have a plethora of doubts regarding the exams. Many students and parents have raised questions regarding the conduction of the board examination, engineering and medical examination date clarification, syllabus reduction, and its feasibility, and changes in the paper pattern.
Dr. Pokhriyal has asked the students, parents, guardians, and other stakeholders to tweet their queries, using the #EducationMinisterGoesLive on his official Twitter handle. Students may raise any query related to the next academic session. The students hope that, like previous live streams, this one will indeed clarify most of their doubts.
JEE and NEET 2021 Examination Date
Out of the many apparent queries related to the academic changes and the new normal in education, the question which has garnered the most attention is the finalization of the Joint Entrance Examination for Engineering or JEE 2021 and the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Examination or NEET 2021 dates. The students appearing for the board examination in the current academic year and aspiring to qualify for these prestigious entrance examinations are confused about when and how to begin their preparation.
Another potential thrust is the reduction in the syllabus by two of the Central Boards, i.e., CISCE and CBSE. The question continually being put up is how will the decrease in the syllabus affect the entrance exam and paper pattern. Most of the entrance examination question papers are based on the syllabus of class 12 board.
