The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare earlier on Thursday has released revised safety guidelines for conducting exams, according to which, exams are now not allowed to be held in containment zones. “Only those examination centers which are outside the containment zone shall be allowed to function. Staff/ examinees from containment zones shall not be permitted. Such examinees shall be given an opportunity to undertake the examination through other means or the Universities/Educational Institution/ Agency may consider appropriate measures in this regard,” the MoHFW Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) mentioned.
Nearly 16 lakh students applied to appear for NEET. The number of exam centres, claims NTA, have also been increased by almost double to ensure the safety of students.
