The JEE exam is scheduled to be conducted between July 19 and July 23, whereas NEET exam is scheduled for July 26. However, more than 30 lakh students are still confused about whether the exams will be conducted as per the scheduled dates or not, since the number of Covid-19 cases in India has increased day by day and in some of the states the lockdown period has also extended till July.
A petition has been filed in the Supreme Court by the parents of NEET 2020 candidates from the Middle-East countries, seeking directions to the government to set up examination centres in Middle-East countries or postpone examination amid COVID-19 crisis.
