JEE AND NEET ASPIRANTS
BY- Sushmita Mukherjee.
The most stressed out and depressed in these tough times are the aspirant students. First, exams like JEE and NEET are very tough competitive national level exams and students prepare for 1-2 years to crack these exams. Syllabus is very hectic with high cutoffs. Now, the pandemic, COVID-19 has affected many aspirants mentally and socially.
At first, they decided that they will conduct exams like JEE and NEET in April. These Exams were now rescheduled for August. However, the Government finally conducted the exams in September. But again, how is it possible to take up exams in September when the corona cases are at their peaks?
Supreme court has taken up this case . Now , exams they postponed the exams to September. However, lack of satisfaction prevails amongst students for many reasons. Transport facilities in India are still closed with increasing cases, and it is difficult for the students to attend the exam in other cities.
States like Jaipur, Assam and Bengal are going through a lot of flood conditions. Now it has become a challenge for the students to prepare or attend the exam in these tough times. In addition, after the decision of supreme court, many students committed suicide just because they have no means of transport.
Many politicians around India tweeted and requested the Supreme Court to postpone the JEE and NEET exams to November. Many students started the hunger protests, and they have been going on for 3 days. Despite that, the supreme court has not changed its decision and has allotted the exam dates.
Conduction of exams in September poses a high risk to the lives of students. They must appear for larger gatherings. Let’s all wish, pray and hope for the best thing to happen.
