With less than 15 days left for the JEE and NEET exams, demands for their postponement have hit the skies on Twitter. #SATYAGRAH_AgainstExamsInCovid trends on Twitter as students from different parts of India speak against the conduct of exams. While some students demand postponement, others want their cancellation.

“Life moves on and despite the pandemic, a full academic year cannot be wasted”, said Supreme Court. About 25 lakh students are supposed to give the competitive exams. Despite the ongoing social media protests, the government has decided to go on with them. The JEE Mains will be held from September 1 to 6 and NEET will be held on September 13. For certain areas facing floods, accessibility is a pressing issue.
