NEW DELHI: Once again students are campaigning on social media, appealing to the National Testing Agency (NTA) to postpone NEET 2021. The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET-UG), the single medical entrance exam in India, is scheduled for September 12. But the NEET exam date is very close to a number of other national and state-level entrance tests and board exams. Students are now asking education minister Dharmendra Pradhan to postpone the NEET 2021 exam.
