A student said on Twitter, “Admit card before one or 2 day for a nation wide exam and the ongoing chaos in the nation is just unbelievable. There are people dying in floods and protest jam roads and cancelled trains. What else do u need? NTA please be responsible.”

A Twitter user said, “It is impossible for the students to reach the examination center in 2 days due to the closure of hundreds of trains and floods in many states. So give relief to the students by postponing the examination.”

Another student addressed Assam chief minister, talked about floods in the state and wrote, “Himanta Biswa Sarma Ji, your state is most affected by the flood, how will the children of your state go to appear in the examination, please help them by requesting NTA and Dharmendra Pradhan for postponing.”

Another Twitter user shared some numbers of officials and asked students to dial them for their demands.

“Jee main's first attempt can be conducted in july and second in august and advance in September. We are not saying to postpone it till 3-4 months. Just a few weeks, as we can’t risk our lives in these critical times,” another student tweeted.
