Students constantly demand NEET-UG postponement; here's what Union Education Minister comments |

The National Testing Agency (NTA) is going to conduct the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) (Undergraduate) 2022 on July 17, Sunday. Since then, candidates who are going to give the test have been constantly asking to postpone announced date to September.

When recently the Union Education Minister, Dharmendra Pradhan, was asked about this during India Today Education Conclave, he said that students always worry. He said, "All our senior principals are here, educationists are here, they face this problem every month. Every month there is an evaluation, every month there is an examination, students come to them, 'madam this not done, I have not prepared, please extend that'. They are facing it every month, I am facing it annually.”

These statements of the Minister have not settled well with a lot of candidates. They have set up Twitter on fire by tweeting how unhappy they are as the Minister 'making fun of the genuine demand of the students'.

However, about postponing NEET-UG 2022, Pradhan said that most of the students are prepared for the exam and they are ready to face the challenge. He further added that the students who qualify in this exam will get admission to MBBS, BDS, BAMS, Bachelor of Ayurveda, BSMS, BHMS, BUMS, and BSc (H) Nursing courses.
