The Union Ministry of Human Resource Development Ministry is likely to make an announcement regarding the conduct of JEE and NEET on Thursday.
The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) and the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) are scheduled to take place in the month of July. According to media reports, the HRD ministry might reschedule the entrance exams or give a green signal to hold the exams on a given date.
Students set to appear for the JEE and NEET have been asking the authorities to take steps and decide on a date as soon as possible. While some have said that conducting exams during Covid-19 is a risky affair, others want clarity on the date so that they can prepare well. Here are some of the tweets.

There are so many students out there who are suffering massively. Please for once think about others.#NoExamsInCovid #CBSE pic.twitter.com/piuxaf4c1m— Adit Reddy (@adit___7) June 23, 2020

To all those morons who are tweeting not the postpone the exams, I have two words - Shut Up. Shut up becoz you dont know what it's like, shut up because you dont understand our situation, most of all shut up becoz 99% of you aren't even aspirants. #NoExamsInCovid @DrRPNishank— Akankshya Kar (@kar_akankshya) June 24, 2020
