New Delhi: National Testing Agency likely to release admit card of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) on 26th August.
Earlier, NTA made it clear that NEET will be held as scheduled on 13th September, while the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) will be held from 1st to 6th September.
The NTA cited Monday’s Supreme Court order: “We find that there is absolutely no justification in the prayer made for postponement of the examination in question relating to NEET UG-2020 as well as JEE (Main) April 2020. In our opinion, though there is a pandemic situation, but ultimately life has to go on and the career of the students cannot be put in peril for long and full academic year cannot be wasted.”
