The HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal in his tweet mentioned that the agency was advised to extend the dates following several requests received from students as they faced hardships due to COVID-19 pandemic.

The application submission deadline of the examinations was earlier scheduled to close on April 30 which was then extended till May 31. The deadline now has been further extended. Candidates can apply through the official website- nta.ac.in.

The NTA had earlier postponed the JEE Main April session to be held in July. The medical entrance exam – NEET too was postponed to be held on July 26. The exams have been deferred to ensure that no large gatherings or commute are allowed amid the coronavirus outbreak in India.

The coronavirus pandemic has postponed the entire academic calendar by at least a month. The University Grants Commission (UGC) had informed that it is aiming at starting the new academic session by September 1. The admission process is likely to start by August.
