    The Supreme Court on Monday rejected the plea seeking postponement of NEET and JEE examinations 2020. A three-judge bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra said that “life has to go on” despite Covid and the court cannot put career of students in peril by interfering with the decision of the National Testing Agency.

    “Career of students cannot be put in peril. We find no merit in the petition. The petition is dismissed”, the bench which also comprised justices BR Gavai and Krishna Murari said.

    Petitioner’s lawyer Alakh Alok Srivastava said that vaccine for Covid is on its way and he is not seeking an indefinite postponment of the exams. But the bench found no merit in the case.

    Another petition praying that NEET and JEE should be held as per schedule, was withdrawn by the petitioner after the court rejected the plea seeking postponement.

The plea sought quashing of National Testing Agency’s (NTA) July 3 notice, to hold of JEE and NEET entrance examination in September.
