Earlier, in a webinar on December 10, Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal had said that the dates for the board exams, the JEE and the medical entry test National Eligibility and Income Test (NEET) will be declared well in advance in 2021 to ensure that students do not face difficulties. However, it did not specify whether the decision to postpone them had been made. He also said that the Ministry of Education is monitoring the Covid-19 situation, which has interrupted the academic session. Issues such as whether it is necessary to reduce the JEE (core) curriculum can only be addressed based on how the pandemic situation unfolds.
