JEE Main 2020 and NEET 2020 will be both conducted in the month of September. JEE Main 2020 will be held from September 01 to 06, 2020. On the other hand, NEET will be held on September 13, 2020. JEE Main will be held in computer-based test format and NEET on the other hand, will be held in pen and paper mode.
Unlike JEE Main 2020, NEET will not be held in the exam centers abroad. Students in social media have demanded NEET exam centers in Dubai too. They have argued if KEAM 2020 can be conducted in Dubai, then why not NEET. For this NTA, have already justified in the court that NEET cannot be held in offline mode internationally, especially in COVID-19. This is because around 16.84 lakh aspirants are going to appear for NEET which is India’s biggest and only medical entrance exam.
