JEE Main 2023: Candidates have tagged the education ministry and NTA to convey their demands as the hashtag "postponeJEEMains" is trending on social media.
Many engineering students are calling for the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE)-Main, scheduled for January, to be postponed because it would occur just a fortnight before board exams and may interfere with practice exams. Except on Republic Day, the first session of the engineering admission exam is scheduled to run from January 24 through January 31, 2023.
Beginning on February 15, 2023, the board exams for class 12 administered by the CBSE will also include practical assessments.
The fact that thousands of children want to study engineering and become engineers causes their parents and teachers to feel deeply about this exam. However, due to the declaration of early dates, they have started to lose up on their goals, said Ritu, a JEE-Main candidate.
It would be a serious injustice if we weren't given a fair chance in the JEE Mains, according to Sarfaraz, a user of social media. So, please, make exams like JEE more equitable. Anubha Sahai, an attorney, and president of the India-Wide Parents Association stated that students are under stress and that this is dangerous. Three students committed suicide a few days ago as a result of stress in Kota, a city known for its coaching scene.
"The schedule for the May Common University Entrance Test (CUET) has now been available. So why can't JEE be handled the same way? All entrance exams ought to be uniform, in Sahai's opinion.
The JEE-Main 2 will be administered in 2023 on the days of April 6, 8, 10, and 12.
The practical exams for the Assam, Bihar, and Telangana boards will be held from January 24 through January 31, while JEE Main will begin on January 25. These dates don't clash with one another. How come the government can't see? questioned Aditya Jha, a prospective engineer.
