Postpone NEET UG 2021: Thousands of Students Sign Online Petition, Urge Govt to Change Exam Date

Mounting pressure on the central government and the National Testing Agency (NTA) to postpone the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for undergraduate (NEET-UG) 2021, over 1400 students have signed an online petition on change.org to demand the postponement of NEET 2021. On the other hand, the NTA has said that the exam will be held as scheduled.

Signing the petition, the students said that the undergraduate medical entrance exam date is clashing with many other state and national level UG entrance exams and the CBSE private exams. To avoid this clash, and to have sufficient time in hand to prepare for the NEET-UG 2021, they are urging the government to postpone the exam to October from September 12. 

The online petition said that the NEET UG 2021 should be postponed till October. “We request the Education Minister and the NTA to take the wise decision of postponing the NEET exam to October for the sake of students’ mental stress and safety and so that every neet aspirant gets an equal chance in performing well during this tough time,” the petitioner said.

Apart from this online petition, many other online campaigns are running on social media platforms with one complaint that the date is clashing with other exams.
