NEET UG 2022: The National Testing Agency only recently announced the date for the NEET UG 2022 exam. The NEET exam, as announced by the NTA, is scheduled for July 17, and the application registration process is currently underway.
Postpone NEET UG 2022: Students who were upset by the announcement of NEET UG 2022 dates and the students are now demanding that the NEET UG examination should be postponed.
Many candidates, however, have reservations about the exam's announced date.
Many students also expressed their disappointment on social media, claiming that there is only one gap between the issuance of exam notification and the date of the exam. They are requesting that the NEET exam be postponed.
Furthermore, many students claimed in social media posts to back up their claims that the NTA had already postponed the engineering entrance exam JEE Main. In addition, engineering students have two chances to take the JEE Main.
On the other hand, the NTA provides only one chance to NEET students, with only two months to do so.
Important exams such as the CBSE, CUET, and JEE will be held during this time. It is difficult to prepare for NEET UG in such a situation.
As a result, the students are requesting that the NEET UG 2022 exam be postponed because they only have one chance to take the medical entrance exam.
At the same time, students have been asked to sign a change.org petition requesting that the exam be postponed until August 2022.
