NEW DELHI: Early this month, the National Testing Agency (NTA) announced the date for the 2022 National Entrance cum Eligibility Test Undergraduate (NEET-UG) 2022. It is also the first week of April that NEET registration 2022 has started at neet.nta.nic.in, and the last date to apply is May 06, 2022.

The official NEET exam date for 2022 is July 17. Many students have raised their concerns on Twitter, calling for the NEET UG 2022 exam to be postponed as there are only a few months left for preparation, including revision. NEET 2021 AIQ counseling has just ended, while in some states, counseling is going on.

The NTA NEET 2022 on July 17 creates inconvenience for many students who want to prepare for both NEET and JEE. Since the CBSE mathematics paper will take place on June 07 and the CBSE board exam will conclude on June 13, there will be hardly any time left to prepare for NEET 2022. In the past, NEET-UG exams were always conducted 45 to 50 days after the CBSE examinations.

The NEET and JEE have also previously been conducted within a week gap, which is not the case this year since the JEE advanced 2022 is on August 28 after rescheduling. In addition to the JEE and CBSE exams, there are also the CUET exams, which take place between the first and second week of July, and preparing for all three exams simultaneously is not easy.

Himanshu Borah, a NEET aspirant, raised the issue for droppers on his Twitter account. “In NEET, the max percentage of aspirants are droppers. They will hardly get only 3 months for preparation as counselling has just finished or even going on in many states.” tweeted a medical aspirant.

Students have also brought to light the past trends of gaps between the dates of both NEET and JEE exams and approached the NTA authority stating NEET-UG & JEE (Advanced) are always conducted every year with a gap of one week. Now JEE (Advanced) is on August 28, then why NEET UG on July 17? Why so much partiality? “

Additionally, candidates are requesting the postponement of the NEET exam on behalf of other students.

Aspirants Nishu Arya expressed his request via Twitter that the NEET exam be postponed to August by mentioning the following points.: "Respected Sir/Ma'am, please help us postpone NEET-UG 2022. Following are our concerns"

Vivek Pandey, another candidate for NEET, also offered his views and prayers
