Gear up for the revised syllabus for NEET and JEE main entrance examination 2021 as government is toying with the idea. Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ has directed the National Testing Agency (NTA) to create a new syllabus for these competitive exams for 2021 amidst Covid-19 situation.
As per the report, the NTA will assess the situation across different state and central school education boards before finalising the syllabus. “It was decided that National Testing Agency will come out with the syllabus for competitive examinations after assessment of the existing scenario in various boards. It was also decided that a campaign would be launched by the Education Ministry to seek views from students, parents and teachers on how and when to conduct the exams next year,” the Education Ministry said.
Usually, NTA conducts NEET UG in May. However, this year, the exam was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Official date of the NEET 2021 exam is awaited. Earlier this week, NTA officials told PTI that the first session of JEE Main 2021 is likely to be held in February instead of January. An official notification regarding JEE Main 2021 date is expected soon and the JEE Main application process will begin next month.
