The Supreme Court this year asked the authorities to allow students who want to take NEET to come in Vande Bharat Mission flights. This year, no exam centres will be set-up abroad. Further, no quarantine relaxations were announced for students and hence those who come for an exam might have to fulfill a 14-day quarantine requirement.
Even as the authorities are making arrangements for the exam, several students, academicians, and politicians are against holding of competitive exams with such a high number of students amid a pandemic. Another section of academicians debates that a further delay might lead to loss of a year for students.
