Amidst this globally crisis, CBSE and many state other boards have decided to postponed or cancel the board exams. This has been done keeping the safety of the students at priority.

The aspirants of these exams are majorly students of class 12. Due to COVID, the students have not been able to attend schools, coaching classes, or tuition. Additionally, the increasing number of corona virus cases has left students worried for their health.
“Respected @DrRPNishank ji , I request you to please postpone the JEE Mains April & May 2021. As the situation is not conducive outside and Covid-19 cases are surging daily. Please postpone the exam.” tweeted one student on Twitter.
The next JEE Main session is to be held between April 27 and 30. Apart from this, the NEET 2021 exam date is August 01 and NDA 2021 will be held on April 18, 2021. But, So far, no announcement has been made for the postponement of the exams. All of these are big national level exams for which lakhs of students apply. Though govt. SOP are followed while conducting the exam but still can be fatal for the candidates to appear for the exams.
