HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ said on Monday told that entrance test like NEET, JEE, CLAT and administrative exams will be organized only after the situation stabilizes.

The outbreak of Covid -19 has created a severe glitch in educational procedures. Even the highest reputed exam of the nation managed by Union Public Services Commission has been put on a halt.

The Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions has announced that it will undertake a systematic review of the dates favorable for the conduct of UPSC exams. As it is a national level exam and students need to travel, the administration has to keep social distancing and other aspects wisely.


Combined Higher Secondary Level Examination (Tier I) 2019, Junior Engineers (Paper I) Examination 2019, Stenographer Grade C and D Examination 2019, and Combined Higher Secondary Level Examination 2018 skill-testing, all these tests have high possibility to happen after 3rd May when the lockdown ends.

All the examinations were postponed since 24 March midnight, after the open declaration of lockdown.

The HRD ministry has confirmed that boards’ students of class X and Xll will be informed ten days prior to the conduction of remaining exams.
