Sikha Verma, from Bhagalpur, said that COVID-19 has made it difficult for her to attend the exam. She said: “I had to report at 11 am Left house at 3 am. I got tired due to the journey and the lengthy process to enter the exam hall.”

NEET 2020 Students Reactions – Chronology
Initially, the exam was scheduled on May 3 but 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 on how they would 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 access 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 COVID-19 cases were rising rapidly in the country. 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 put pressure on the Ministry of Education and The Prime Minister’s Office to postpone the exam. Twitter was trending with #satyagrahagainstexam #modijipostponeneetjee
However, NTA released the admit card for NEET on August 26 confirming the schedule of the exam.
Though the candidates were not ready to budge from their demand and the whole matter was politicized. Chief Ministers from six states filed a review petition on NEET 2020 which was finally rejected on September 4, putting at rest all the controversies on the conduct of NEET 2020.
