The wait for a decision on JEE Main and NEET 2020 examinations seems to be nerve-wracking for students. While a decision was recently made on CBSE Board examinations, there is no word on many exams including JEE Main and NEET 2020 exams. Meanwhile, students are demanding the postponement of the JEE Main and NEET 2020 exams. While JEE Main 2020 is scheduled to be held from July 18 to July 23, the NEET 2020 exam is slated for July 26. As the exams are soon approaching in July, students are uncertain about their fate.
After CBSE canceled July exams for Class 10 and Class 12 this week, hopes of JEE and NEET aspirants too revived as they hoped for the postponement of their exams as well. Students are taking to social media and repeatedly seeking clarity on the holding of JEE Mains and NEET exams.
