NEET UG 2022: Majority of students already prepared for exam, says Dharmendra Pradhan
Postpone NEET UG 2022: Amid growing demand from students and their parents to postpone NEET UG 2022, Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Wednesday made a big announcement and said students are already prepared for the exam. Replying to a question on postponing the medical exam, the education minister said, “I think, the majority of students have already prepared to face the exam.”
According to Dharmendra Pradhan, students are constantly nervous. He said, “All our senior principals are here, educators are here; they deal with this issue every month.
“Every month there is an evaluation, every month there is an examination, students come to them and say, Madam this not done, I have not prepared, please extend it,” he stated in reference to the postponement of the NEET UG.
“They are facing it every month, I am facing it annually,” the union education minister said at the event.
The statement from the education minister comes a day after the National Students Union of India (NSUI) wrote a letter to him for the postponement of NEET UG 2022.
In his letter, NSUI national president Neeraj Kundan said since lakhs of students are going to appear for the NEET UG 2022 examination, the process for the examination should not be started or concluded ‘in a hurry’.
The NSUI chief also alleged that the delay in the notice has also reduced the preparation time to a minimum and asked for NEET UG 2022 to be postponed for at least 45 days.
He said the counseling procedure for the previous academic session is already running late and with the minimum time left for preparation, it is difficult for a student to ace an exam with such competitiveness.
