New Delhi:  Karnataka students, who missed the medical entrance examination — National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) — due to a train delay will get another chance, Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said on Monday.

The NEET for these students will be conducted on May 20, he said.

“Happy to announce that Karnataka students who missed the NEET exam due to a train delay will get another chance,” Javadekar tweeted.

The NEET for admission to Medical Colleges was held across the country on Sunday. But hundreds of students from Karnataka missed the exam as their train reached Bengaluru an hour after the scheduled reporting time for the exam.

Karnataka Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy had tweeted on Sunday highlighting the issue. He had tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his tweet. The National Testing Agency, which is conducting the NEET the first time, has announced exam centres will remain the same.

“The centres for the exam will remain the same as announced earlier,” the official said.

The exam was also postponed in Odisha in view of the cyclone Fani. It will also be   held on May 20.
