The Coronavirus pandemic has not only hit the economy of the nation but the education system to the core. Every now and then some schools or colleges are recruiting the students to either in new classes or year. Even the governmental and other prestigious competitive exams for engineering and medical are suffering from the situation. The JEE Main exam was scheduled to be conducted in the month of April first and NEET UG exam was to be held on 3rd May. But both examinations were postponed in view of the coronavirus lockdown.
Since the National Testing Agency (NTA) has not shared any new information about JEE Main and NEET Exam. The students are concerned about their future. Will these exams be conducted or not and if so then when will it happen? There are certainly the questions growing up in everyone’s mind.
Here, Union Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal; Nishank all set to discuss the students from across the country on 5 May through a webinar, in which he will answer the questions that were arising in their mind during the Corona crisis period and will also announce the dates of JEE and NEET exam. So that the doubts about the examinations will be cleared to the students and they can resume their preparations.
Apart from answering the questions of the students, the Union Minister will make everyone aware about the various campaigns and schemes for online education run by the Ministry of Human Resource Development and motivate them to make maximum use of it. Earlier, Mr. Nishank had communicated with the parents on April 27 through a webinar in which more than 20 thousand parents from all over the country took part.
Sharing information about the webinar, Minister Nishank said on Sunday, “This time is very important for us, where we have to take care, where not only we have to avoid the loss of student’s studies, but we have to consider that they are also mentally healthy. In this regard, the Ministry has run many schemes and students have been made aware of them from time to time. I will once again appeal to all the students and parents to take advantage of these schemes and continue to perform their duties in the interest of the country for a few days with the patience with which they have followed the lock-down so far.”
