After several delays in conducting the engineering and medical entrance exam - JEE Main and NEET - students are fearing that any further postponement may affect their entire academic year. As several coaching institutes had informed indianexpress.com earlier, students are raising concerns over the delay and are finding it a challenge to stay focussed in the long-term.

The JEE Main, which was to be held in April, has now been postponed till September and NEET too has been deferred twice. It will be held in September. Several experts had also informed that with a higher delay and more practice, students have better chances of getting a good rank now. Since the competition is relatively high, the cut-off can also increase. However, there are students who have appeared for JEE Main in January and are now preparing for Advanced as they believe there would not be enough time left for it after Main.

However, many students are taking to Twitter to express their concerns over conducting the exams amid pandemic. Another section of students and academicians are demanding that the authorities should not postpone the competitive entrance exam any further. Students from disadvantaged areas or backgrounds believe that the online preparation would make it difficult for them to catch up as they lack proper resources.

No NEET-like single entrance exam next year for engineering 22-Aug-2017
New Delhi,Aug 22

The human resource development (HRD) ministry has decided against conducting a single entrance exam for engineering from next year and states will continue with their own examinations. HRD minister Prakash Javadekar on Sunday told HT that a committee formed by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) will submit a report on whether the single entrance exam will be conducted some time in the future. “The issue of single entrance exam is still pending and a committee will submit its recommendations. But no changes will be made next year for sure. So no single entrance exam will be conducted next year. Depending on the recommendation of the committee further decision will be taken,” said Javadekar. Officials said unlike the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET), engineering exams are different as there is an oversupply in the market.

India has more than 3,300 approved engineering colleges affiliated to universities, with an annual intake of an estimated 1.6 million students. But only about half of the seats are filled. “There are more institutes and courses than students so the scenario here is different. The experiences of NEET are being studied but no exam will be held next year,” said a senior official. NEET is conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for admissions to undergraduate and post graduate courses to medical colleges all over India except a few states. Once implemented, the single engineering entrance test will do away with the practice of multiple examinations conducted by central agencies, state governments and private institutions. The current admission process is dependent on performance these examinations. The CBSE conducts the JEE-Main for Centre-funded institutions. More than 1.3 million students write this examination every year. A number of states conduct their own tests while some grant admission based on class 12 marks. Several private colleges also have their own examinations.
