The National Testing Agency (NTA) has said that it has made elaborate arrangements to comply with Education Ministry’s guidelines for conducting the NEET and JEE examinations. The JEE- Main exam will be held from 1st to 6th of September, while NEET will be conducted on the 13th of September. The NTA said, the examination centres will be sanitised both before and after the examination and the candidates can also ask for fresh masks and hand gloves at the centre. The NTA has also sought support of the state authorities to ensure proper law and order condition, power supply, crowd management in front of exam centres, and facilitation of movement of candidates and exam functionaries. The agency has issued along with the admit cards, ‘Important Instructions for Candidates’ as well as ‘Advisory for Candidates regarding COVID-19’.
NTA has informed that over 75 per cent JEE candidates have already downloaded their admit cards. It further said that over 99 percent of the candidates appearing both for NEET and JEE have been allotted their first preference as examination centres in order to avert instances of inconvenience.
