JEE Main 2021 : Students make BIG demands ahead of engineering entrance test


The student body also wrote a letter about the same to the newly appointed Minister of Education Dharmendra Pradhan on Twitter.

After months of waiting, the Education Ministry recently announced the dates of the engineering entrance examination - JEE Main 2021. 

Notably, this time around, the gap between the two attempts of the engineering entrance test is reduced to just two days. This is a big change for students as usually there is a month-long gap between the two attempts. 

However, this time the gap of two days has started a debate where one side thinks there has already been too much delay, the other says that the negligible gap defeats the purpose of having two attempts at all.

Several students have now come forward and have demanded postponement of the fourth attempt beginning from July 27. The third attempt will be held from July 20 to July 25.

Writing to the newly appointed Minister of Education Dharmendra Pradhan on Twitter, a student body said, "This gap is crucial for students to analyze their previous mistakes and then rectify them, so as to prepare again and have required confidence to appear in the next attempt. Though it is understandable that in order to cope with the academic calendar the gap has to shrink but doing so at the cost of students’ future is no logical explanation, hence we demand to change the gap period from two days to at least 15 days."

They further claim, "Exam dates are clashing with various other exams of different levels. It will create a sense of disturbance and confusing situation for the aspirants and as a result, students might not be able to prepare and focus on the respective topics."

Many experts have also decided to back students, while others have made it clear that they do not support the demand.
