CBSE, JEE Main, NEET, CTET Exams 2020: Due to the ever-increasing coronavirus infection in the country, many big examinations going on in July are under threat. The matter of proposed CBSE 10th 12th examinations between July 1 and 15 is pending in the Supreme Court. The apex court has given time till June 23 to consider the request to release the result on the basis of internal assessment by canceling the remaining examinations by CBSE. Today, the CBSE Board or the Ministry of Human Resource Development will make it clear that the exam will be postponed or canceled. If canceled, on what basis will the marks be given to students?
It is not that the impact of cancellation or postponement of CBSE exams will be limited to that only. This will also affect the dates of NEET and Engineering Entrance Examination JEE, to be held in July. The JEE Main Exam is scheduled between 18 and 23 July, while the NEET is scheduled for 26 July. CBSE and National Testing Agency (NTA) had set the schedule of JEE and NEET examinations in such a way that students can easily take the engineering and medical entrance examination after the exam ends on July 15. In such a situation, if the CBSE 12th examinations are postponed or canceled, then the dates of JEE and NEET examinations are also scheduled to be moved forward. Both these entrance exams also give lakhs of students. Just as parents do not think it safe to send children to the examination center for board exams, similarly they should hardly send for NEET and JEE Main.
Apart from 10th and 12th, CBSE also conducts the Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET) which is going to be held on July 5 in 110 cities of the country. CBSE has not yet issued the admit card of this exam. Millions of candidates who want to become teachers sit in this exam. Increased cases of coronavirus infection may also shake the schedule of this exam. However, the board has made it clear that every candidate will get admission only by putting a mask on the center. Apart from this, there will be a sanitizer system at every center. Candidates will enter the class only after using sanitizer. The distance between each candidate is to be kept from four to five feet.
