Competitive exams such as JEE main and advanced, NEET UG 2020, UGC-NET, among others which have already been postponed will be further delayed and likely to push the undergraduate and postgraduate admission schedule beyond July-August 2020, that too if the lockdown is lifted in May. This came after a number of state governments extended the lockdown for another fortnight, and with more states likely to follow suit.
According to an MHRD source, “Now the examinations will have to be further postponed. Earlier this month, CBSE had already decided to cut down the number of subjects for which class X and XII board exams are to be rescheduled.” CBSE announced that it will conduct exams for only 29 of the 41 pending subjects.
