    Year 2020 JEE main and advanced, NEET, NET likely to be delayed

    All 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.

    With over 30 school education boards either yet to complete their board exams or postponing their evaluation process due to the lockdown, the results will be further delayed.

    Central Board of Secondary Education

    (CBSE), National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) and Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) had to postpone their class X and XII exams, suspend their evaluation process and were supposed to take a call on April 15, post the 21-day lockdown. However, with some states already announcing the extension of period till the end of this month, sources said that boards will have to continue waiting till the lockdown is lifted.

    According to a 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.

    Under such a situation, according to a CBSE source, the board may even have to re-think the decision to conduct examination of even the 29 subjects. "There are three options left with the board - first being to conduct the remaining examination and the evaluation process post the lockdown period, which will delay declaration of the results. The second option is to conduct the exams and evaluate the answer scripts if allowed during the lockdown, in which case we may be able to declare the results by June 2020. The third option is to start evaluation for which exams were already conducted, cancel the rest of the exams and evaluate them based on internal assessment. The schools have already submitted the internal assessment marks and those were already uploaded. So marks will be granted based on the internal assessment, in which case we will be able to declare the results by June."

    According to a senior government source, the MHRD is likely to request state governments and HEIs to advance their summer break and reopen as soon as the lockdown gets over to conduct the pending exams. During this time the institutions will be asked to conduct classes online and leave the practical part for the post lockdown period.
