  • Prof. Arun K. Pujari, (Chairman, Steering Committee, Central Universities Common Entrance Examination)
  • Prof. Sushma Yadav, (Vice Chancellor, Bhagat Phool Singh Mahila Vishwavidyalya)
  • Sushil Chandra Tripathi, (Former Secretary, Ministry of HRD, GoI)

Topic Description:

In the wake of Covid-19 risks, the National Testing Agency has issued detailed advisories for exam centre invigilators and candidates for the Joint Entrance Exam Mains and the National Eligibility and Entrance Test, set to be held next month. For admission to engineering colleges, JEE Mains is scheduled from 1 to 6 September, while the NEET, which is for admission to medical colleges, is to be conducted on 13 September. Looking to minimise the risk of infection, the NTA in its advisories has called for separate isolation rooms for candidates showing Covid symptoms. It has also directed the use of fresh masks, to be provided at the centre, apart from guidelines on social distancing, use of sanitisers and thermal screening. The agency has issued two advisories for candidates and invigilators over the last two days. The move came even as students have urged the Ministry of Education to postpone the exams amid rising Covid cases in the country. However, the NTA, which functions under the ministry, has already clarified that the exams won’t be postponed.
