In the wake of the alarming rate of increase of COVID patients in India, health becomes an imperative factor to look at while stepping out of the house. This is an appeal to discard NEET/JEE 2020 in the fear of an adverse effect of the pandemic on the students appearing for these exams. Health should be our priority in such trying times and we must look for a safer alternative to the written entrance test. Therefore, the board results of class 12 can be counted as the basis for entrance to these competitive courses in our Indian colleges. This will prevent the students from contracting the lethal virus.

Instead of postponing the exams indefinitely resulting in unnecessary confusion, it is wiser to cancel them.

The nation must also realise the adverse impacts these entrance tests might have on the rate of spread of the pandemic in the country. Students in large numbers will be appearing and despite taking all precautions, the chances of spread will greatly increase as the parents’ of the students will also be at risk. This can cost India a lot. We already have a scarcity of beds in our hospitals and such a step can worsen the situation. It is a humble request to put your health and country first and get these exams cancelled for the betterment of everyone. Be safe. Be healthy.
