Examinations of CBSE and JEE Mains-2 have been postponed as a precaution against corona virus infection. After seeing the situation on 31 March, new dates are likely to be announced. The National Testing Agency has now clarified that in case of exam reschedule, there will be no conflict between the dates of both examinations. Both NTA and CBSE will decide the new date for the exams. About 12 lakh students are appearing in CBSE 12th and 9 lakh students in JEE. The students, who were preparing for the postponement of the examinations, feared that the dates of both the examinations might collide later. Eight papers of the 12th board are yet to be held.
If the NTA reschedules the JEE Mains examinations in April, then it will also face the challenge of the NEET exam to be held on 3 May. This is because now the gap in JEE Mains and NEET paper will be reduced. NEET paper will be in offline mode. Along with delivering the paper to the center, their security will also have to be done. JEE Mains will be online. For this reason, if the JEE Mains happens by the middle of April, then only the NTA will get enough time for NEET.
