SoP violations at JEE exam centres worry students SC to hear plea regarding JEE and NEET exams

The ministers had claimed that the top court order failed to secure students' "right to life" and ignored "teething logistical difficulties" to be faced in conducting the exams during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The apex court also rejected the applications seeking listing of the review petition in the open court. Applications seeking permission to file review petitions are allowed.

The states which have approached the Supreme Court include Maharashtra, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Chhattisgarh, Punjab, and Jharkhand.

Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi previously said in a joint press conference of parties that the grounds on which their review petition had been filed has not been heard by the court so far and is different from those petitions which have been dismissed by the top court.

Demanding postponement of NEET 2020, due next week, a student and Twitter user by the name of Neha Dwivedi said, 'We are 16 lakh aspirants and will take the exam in a single shift in a single day, with alteast 32 lakh parents and staff.it will lead to a disaster. please save us'.

This review petition was finally heard today, however, the decision has been yet the same that JEE Main 2020 and NEET 2020 will be held as per schedule.

The review petition filed through advocate Sunil Fernandes, states that the August 17 order is "cryptic" and "non-speaking" and that it does not take into account the complexities involved and the risk conducting an examination of this scale in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. The review plea had also said that only two reasons given by the court - life must go on and students should not lose an academic year - do not constitute an authoritative and comprehensive judicial scrutiny of the issue.

JEE Main exams had started on September 1.

"Here is the attendance for the last 3 days for JEE Main". In Telangana, 55800 students will sit for NEET at 112 centers, whereas in AP 61,892 students will take the exam at 151 centers next week.

It must be noted that JEE exams will be held till September 6.

"It is rather ironical that at the initial stage when there were much lesser number of COVID-19 positive cases, the examinations were postponed and now when the daily spread of the virus is at its peak the examinations are directed to be conducted forthwith", the plea said.
