NEET aspirants also have been campaigning for the postponement of the medical entrance exam using several hashtags like #postponeNEETUG, #PleaseRescheduleNEETUG. Over the past few months, they have been continuously requesting education minister Dharmendra Pradhan and NTA to postpone, reschedule or cancel the entrance exam due to possible third wave of COVID-19 and less preparation time.
NEET 2021 is scheduled for September 12, 2021. Amid several exams scheduled in September, NEET 2021 exam date is very close to CBSE improvement exams 2021, MHT CET 2021, Karnataka’s CoMEDK exam, Odisha JEE, and MP Class 12 improvement exams etc.

Kindly take a decision to Postpone at least 18-20 days.”
