NEET UG 2022: Aspirants are disappointed because Dharmendra Pradhan, the Union Minister of Education, rejected their request to postpone the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) for the class of 2022.
The minister has come under fire from candidates for what they claim to be “laughing at their struggles” and for equating a national exam with a bi-monthly school exam. Students are constantly concerned, Pradhan said in response to a question at the education summit that India Today organised on Tuesday. All of our senior principals and educators are present; they deal with this issue every month.
NEET applicants have stormed Twitter with complaints about his remarks:
Even if there are increasing calls for the exam to be delayed, PIB Fact Check recently shared a bogus notice about the delay and cautioned applicants not to believe it. Such a warning from PIB strongly suggested that the exam is unlikely to be postponed in the absence of a response from the authorities.
