NEET Student Reactions 2020 – Chronology
Initially, the exam was scheduled for May 3. Still, the ongoing lockdown in the country and delay in the notification about the postponement of the exam had increased anxiety among the students. Aspirants were under pressure to give the exam and reach the exam centre as there was lockdown across the country.
On May 22, a notification was released to postpone the exam to July 26, which provided relief to students and a sense of clarity. However, when the date to release the admit card came close, a section of aspirants and their parents started demanding the postponement of the exam due to the COVID19 situation.
The Ministry of Education took up the matter and set up a task force to assess the situation and provide recommendations on the exam. As recommended, the exam was postponed and scheduled for September 13.
Again, in August, as the date to release the admit card came close, students started to demand further postponement of NEET 2020 as the country’s COVID-19 cases rose rapidly. NTA was not ready to accept the demand of the aspirants, so 11 students from 11 states filed a petition in Supreme Court to postpone the exam citing pandemic situation, however on August 17, the plea was dismissed by the Supreme Court, and a section of aspirant was not happy about the decision.
From August 17 onwards, the section of students started to pressure the Ministry of Education and The Prime Minister’s Office to postpone the exam. Twitter was trending with #satyagrahagainstexam #modijipostponeneetjee
