JEE Main, NEET: Supreme Court to hear postponement case on Aug 31

The Supreme Court will conduct hearing on the review petition filed by six States ruled by Opposition parties seeking postponement of JEE Main 2020 and NEET 2020 on August 31, 2020, Monday.

JEE Main will be held from September 1 to 6 in online mode and NEET will be held in offline mode on September 13 across India.

The Supreme Court is expected to deliver its judgement on whether JEE Main, NEET should be postponed or not on August 31, 2020, Monday itself as the JEE Main is scheduled to begin the very next day on September 1, 2020.

However, the lawyers involved in the case have urged students and parents to not rely much on the review petition as the exams are just two days away and Supreme Court may not favour postponement of exams at this stage in the last minute.

Advocate Sunil Fernandes made it clear that the mere filing of review petition does not mean the exams will be postponed. Don't be misled, he said. 

Advocate Anubha Shrivastava Sahai, also the chief of the India Wide Parents' Association, also asked students to focus on their studies and not rely much on the petition filed in the apex court. "Students I request you all to focus on studies and don't rely much on the petition filed in SC. Until there will be any stay from SC. which I feel is difficult, exams will be conducted. So focus on your studies," she said.
