JEE Main to start from July 18, NEET scheduled for July 26
Students can finally breathe a sigh of relief with the HRD Ministry announcing the dates for JEE Main and NEET. While the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main for admission to engineering colleges will begin from July 18, it will continue till July 23. The National Eligibility cum Entrance Exam (NEET) for admission to medical courses has been scheduled for July 26. Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank announced the new dates in a tweet after many anxious aspirants requested him for more details on the scheduling of exams.
Due to the postponing of the JEE Main exam, the JEE Advanced examination for admission to coveted IITs across India will be held in August. However, the HRD Ministry has not selected a date for the exam.
Many entrance examinations including NEET and JEE Main were postponed due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Now that the final dates for the exams are out, students can ramp-up their preparations for these competitive examinations. Due to the present lockdown situation, students cannot venture out to go to coaching classes for refreshers and tests. For this, aspirants can easily use online exam software for mock tests for easy and immediate self-assessment. While the D-day inches closer, students need to practice, practice and practice some more for the best results. Online exam software like MegaExams gives instant results to mock tests and lets the student know what subjects need more attention. This can save time while students gear up revisions.
Mr. Pokhriyal also announced that dates for the UGC-NET exam will be released soon, instating joy in many aspirants, who are pulling their socks up and constantly revising. The rescheduled dates for many other entrance examinations will be out soon. Hence, students will now need to get back to intense revisions and will need to take multiple tests.
In a major respite for many aspirants, Mr. Pokhriyal also stated that IITs, IIITs, and NITs will not be hiking their fees for the coming academic session.
