Students preparing for the NEET-UG exam in 2021
Thousands of medical students have demanded that the NEET-UG 2021 be postponed due to the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. Physical examinations are currently being conducted in an unfair manner, according to students.
Meanwhile, several students have proposed that the NEET UG exam be held twice or three times this year, similar to the JEE Main 2021 exam. However, the National Testing Agency later stated that the medical admission exam will be held only once this year.
In light of the pandemic and the countrywide lockdown, the NEET exam was also postponed in 2020. After being postponed multiple times, the examination was finally conducted in physical mode in September 2020.
