NEET-UG, CUET exam dates clash; Students demand postponement of entrance test

New Delhi: Thousands of students are demanding the postponement of NEET-UG 2022 which is scheduled to be conducted on July 17, 2022. Aspirants across the country are running an online protest on social media, especially on the microblogging site Twitter with the #postponeetug2022. The whole online movement by students is being run citing that the NEET-UG is scheduled too close to other entrance examinations, specifically CUET. Asserting that NEET is closely scheduled to CUET-UG 2022 and the JEE Main 2022 exams, students said that it is very difficult to prepare for all these entrance examinations in such a short gap between two exams and it is a traumatic experience for all aspirants.

Students are also stating that the counselling of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (Undergraduate)-UG 2021 ended just in March, and the 2022 edition is scheduled on July 17 and questioning the NTA how are they supposed to revise such a vast syllabus in just 3 months.

“How are we to revise such a vast syllabus in just 3 months? Moreover, other important exams like the Board Exams, CUCET, JEE Mains are also scheduled around the same time. Imagine the trauma and pressure we students are having to go through with all these significant exams scheduled one after the other. Is this a fair decision?” the online petition by students states as per PTI.

“Please understand the situation of the students.90 days is never enough to cover the vast syllabus of 98 chapters.We need at least 4 more weeks to get properly prepared for exam,” said a Twitter user. ALSO READ- Agnipath Recruitment: Registration for IAF begins, direct link and more here
