June 25, 2021

New Delhi: The Union Government is planning to conduct the first of the two pending JEE (Main) in the last week of July or first week of August, followed by the second within 10 days.

However, the Government is going to take a final call on NEET-UG on whether it will be conducted in August end or September after reviewing the Covid-19 situation across States/UTs.

The Ministry of Education in 2020 announced that the National Testing Agency (NTA) will conduct the engineering entrance test four times a year. However, after conducting the February and March exams, the computer-based test had to be postponed in April 21, 2021 due to the second wave of the pandemic and  subsequent lockdown. 

Over 6.2 lakh candidates appeared in February exams while 5.5 lakh candidates appeared in the March session of the exams.

The NEET-UG, the entrance exam for MBBS and Dental courses as of now, had been scheduled for August 1, 2021. However, the registration is yet to commence as many parts of the country are still under the COVID-induced lockdown.
