24 Lakh Students Prepare to Give JEE and NEET 2020 Exams During COVID-19

Across India, students are protesting the decision to conduct entrance and final-year examinations despite the surging COVID-19 case count.

In the coming two weeks, more than 24 lakh students are expected to appear for JEE (September 1st - 6th) and NEET (September 13th).

At the same time, as per UGC guidelines, colleges and universities are required to conduct final-year examinations by September 30th.

Needless to say, the spectre of hundreds of thousands of students taking tests offline amidst a raging pandemic is one that has discomforted many. Most of all the students.

And the conundrum of how to ensure educational continuity during an age of lockdowns and social distancing has been playing out for some time now.
