National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test was being conducted today, across its 154 Indian cities. It has just been wrapped up! As per the student’s reaction, it was seen to be of “moderate” difficulty level. All the questions in the exam were totally NCERT based. Surprisingly, Physics was easier than the last year’s paper and mostly, the questions came from Modern Physics section. As per the NEET 2019 Exam analysis, Chemistry was a cakewalk for most of the candidates. This year, the paper codes were P1, Q1, R1, S1 and so on.
CM OF KARNATAKA tweets…
Around 4 PM, Chief Minister of Karnataka had tweeted an unfortunate event of some candidates missing out on their opportunity to appear for the exam today. Due to a 7 hour delay in the arrival of Hampi Express, these candidates had reportedly missed their NEET exam from various North Karnataka districts. This chaos arose due to change in the exam centre, the very last minute and improper communication of the same.
Late By Two Minutes, A Candidate Wasn’t Allowed To Enter The Exam Hall
The exam was conducted by NTA in offline mode between 2 PM to 5 PM. All the candidates were advised by National Testing Agency to report before 12:00 noon at their respective centres. Further, a candidate was clearly notified about the gate closing time to be 1:30 pm. Still, one of the candidate was reported to reach the centre late by 2 minutes than the exact gate closing time. Parents and the gate keepers got involved in a verbal spat to decide whether or not, this candidate should be allowed to appear for the exam.
The candidate’s parent claimed that in an unfortunate event of vehicle broke down, this delay had occurred. Otherwise, they were to report at the centre, well on time. Other parents at the centre also spoke in favour of the candidate and constantly urged the guards to allow the student to enter the exam hall. But, the guards were even undeterred in their decision, as part of their duty demands! 15 minutes had passed and the chaos was still on, outside the exam centre.
So, police was called to make the decision. Similar situation was witnessed at one of the CAT 2019 centres, as well. And that CAT aspirant wasn’t allowed to enter the exam centre, even after requesting ample number of times. This was the reason, a candidate is always asked to go through the instructions mentioned on the admit card and make a note of it.
