NEET 2021 Exam Dates – Students Demand Update From the Education Ministry

Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal’s twitter handle has been recently flooded with tweets from students demanding an update on the NEET 2021 exam dates. The tweets poured in instantly after yesterday’s LIVE webinar conducted by the Union Education Minister regarding the exam dates and eligibility for the JEE Advanced 2021. The official twitter handle of Dr. Pokhriyal has been receiving such tweets most likely due to the fact that the Ministry has still not informed much about the NEET 2021 examination, which is the most prominent medical entrance exam in the country.

Candidates have shown outrage on why “NEET 2021 is being sidelined by JEE Main, JEE Advanced and even Board exams 2021”. An aspiring candidate tweeted – “What about NEET dates? “Say something about NEET dates, it is as important as that of JEE”. Another NEET aspirant, while emphasizing his concern over the preparation strategy, tweeted- “How can we prepare when we have no idea about what’s going to happen. We don’t know if the NEET 2021 Syllabus would remain the same, or if there would be any change in the examination pattern. It wouldn’t be surprising if, at the last minute, we get informed about some major changes”. Yet another student showed his disappointment at the Ministry for already being too late to disclose the crucial updates on NEET 2021. The student tweeted – “It’s too late already. You did not decide anything on NEET 2021 while JEE candidates are heaving a sigh of relief. Please confirm the date of syllabus of NEET  for this academic session. A different student requested the Ministry through a tweet to  “Please give relaxation to NEET aspirants too like JEE aspirants and please announce the dates as soon as possible”.
