NEET UG postponement demand: ‘Don’t compare with Unit test’, says Union Edu Min


Bhubaneswar: The National Testing Agency (NTA) is all set to conduct the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) (Undergraduate) 2022 on July 17. Since the announcement of the exam date, students have been demanding postponement of NEET UG to at least by September.

However, recently when Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan was asked about the demand of the students, he said ‘students are always anxious’. As part of his address during India Today Education Conclave, he said, “Students are always anxious. All our senior principals are here, educationists are here, they face this problem every month.”

“Every month there is an evaluation, every month there is an examination, students come to them, ‘madam this not done, I have not prepared, please extend that’. They are facing it every month, I am facing it annually,” the Education Minister said

These comments of Dharmendra Pradhan seem to have not gone well with the aspirants of the medical entrance examination who accused the Union Minister of ‘making fun of the genuine demand of the students’.

However, on any possibility of extension of NEET UG exam date, the Union Education Minister stated, “I think, a majority of students have already prepared to face the examination.”Those, who will qualify in the NEET UG 2022, will get admission to MBBS, BDS, BAMS, Bachelor of Ayurveda, BSMS, BHMS, BUMS, and BSc (H) Nursing courses.
