It is almost time for the entrance examinations to be held for students across the country. Usually, by this time, NEET, JEE Main, JEE Advanced and more already release their exam schedule depending on the annual board exams. But because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a delay in class 10 and class 12 examinations, and so for the national-level entrance exams. After a significant wait, Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ last month announced the JEE Mains 2021 exams, which this year will be held in multiple cycles to ensure a fair opportunity and much greater flexibility to the candidates. He took to Twitter recently stating that the announcement of JEE Advanced exam 2021 dates will be made tomorrow, January 7. With this, NEET aspirants got worried, as they eagerly wait for the NTA time table, which is yet to be announced. When is NEET 2021 exam—medical aspirants have surfaced the microblogging platform as they ‘need clarity’ over the entrance exam.
Education Minister Pokhriyal has been actively engaging with students over the past months, keeping them updated with the latest exam notifications. The CBSE board exams 2021 dates were also announced, which is scheduled to begin from May 4 and end on June 10. In addition, the first phase of JEE Main 2021 exam will start from February 23. To clear the air, he took to Twitter stating that the exam dates for ITT JEE Advanced will be announced tomorrow, at 6:00 PM.
