“Career of Students Under Jeopardy”, Says Supreme Court, No More Delay in NEET 2020

The students are worried and so are parents. But it seems that they have to move on. The Supreme Court of India rejected the plea demanding postponement of NEET 2020 and JEE Main 2020 exams till the normalcy is restored after the COVID-19 pandemic. Late night on 17th August 2020, the National Testing Agency (NTA) also released the ‘JEE Main April/September 2020 Admit Cards’ for candidates pretty quick after the final verdict of the Supreme Court. This could mean that NEET 2020 Admit Cards might be released soon enough.

“Students Could Lose The Academic Year”

The Supreme Court bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra was hearing the plea, who also announced the final verdict. Since the plea demanding postponement has been dismissed, the NEET 2020 will be held as per the revised schedule on 13th September 2020.

“Life should move on even during COVID-19. How can we just stop the exam? We must move on”, said Justice Arun Mishra over the plea demanding NEET postponement. He also said that not conducting the entrance exams will be a loss to the country. Students will lose the entire academic year and their career will be put under jeopardy.

NTA vs Students

Solicitor General, Mr Tushar Mehta, advocate for NTA, assured the SC bench that both exams will be conducted taking all necessary precautions to stop the spread of COVID-19.

While on the other hand, Advocate Alok Srivastava cited the Prime Minister’s 15th Aug speech that a vaccine for COVID-19 is coming soon. Hence, the exams need not be postponed indefinitely but only for some time until the vaccine is out.

But, the Supreme Court bench rejected the petition to postpone NEET and JEE exams. Justice Arun Mishra dismissed the plea saying that delaying the exams any further will put the ‘Career of students under peril’.

The petition filed on behalf of 11 students by Advocate Alakh Alok Srivastava has the following requests from students-

  1. Exams must be postponed as the COVID-19 cases are increasing rapidly.
  2. NEET exam must be conducted only after normalcy is restored post COVID-19
  3. Exam Centres must be increased and each district must have an exam centre to ensure students need not travel outside their city.
  4. Aspirants must be provided a fresh opportunity to fill the application form along with exam centre preferences from scratch.

NTA to double NEET Exam Centers to prop up Social Distancing

NTA will conduct the NEET-UG exam on 26 July. With this announcement, the National Testing Agency is at a crossroads to administer the pen and paper exam for around 15 lakh aspirants while conforming to the norms of social distancing amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

As NEET-UG is a pen and paper-based exam, it is conducted all around the country at the same time, unlike JEE Main and JEE Advanced, that are conducted online and in multiple shifts. To resolve this issue, NTA is planning to conduct the exam at around 6000 exam centers contrary to the 3000 centers for normal conditions. This plan will enable a minimum of 2 metres distance between two students. Usually, Kendra Vidyalayas, CBSE-affiliated schools, engineering colleges and state government colleges are chosen for the exam. It will be challenging for the agency to figure out additional 3000 exam centers in a limited time.

Furthermore, NTA is also planning on increasing the number of shifts and add around 200 more exam centers to maintain social distancing for JEE Main. As for JEE Advanced, the exam will be conducted in 600 exam centers as the number of students qualifying for the exam is estimated to be only 2 lakhs.
