0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!

We urge the Government to postpone all exams at least till 2021 to ensure safety of not only students but also of the society, as a whole.

Postpone JEE, NEET, UPSC and other exams scheduled to be held in Sept-Dec 2020 by 6-8 months.

  • On appeal of Honourable PM, citizens of the nation took every possible precaution to stop spread of this deadly and dangerous virus. When called upon by the PM we restricted ourselves to indoors for months, so as to not put life of ourselves and our families in danger. But now we are being forced to appear in exams which will witness coming together of 200-2000 aspirants at one place. 
  • Official number for confirmed COVID 19 cases has already cross 20 lakhs! However, as per serological survey happened at Delhi, 23% have developed antibodies. On extrapolation this gives a figure of 60 lakhs cases in Delhi alone! (While the official confirmed cases were just 25,000 during the time). This shows how severe COVID 19 pandemic is! Conducting exams in such a situation can result in exponential explosion in number of cases.
  • Over 30 lakhs aspirants are expected to appear in these exams. Taking average family size of 5, it amounts to involvement of over 1.5 crore people in exam process. 
  • Past experiences in exams like KCET have shown how dangerous conducting exams can be in such a situation. 
  • Restrictions on offline coaching has put candidates with limited resources, at disadvantage. In such a time, conducting the exam would be violation of right to equal opportunities.
  • Chances of any vaccine coming by or Before AUG 15 are slim.

As mentioned in the plea filed in SC, "Conducting the aforesaid examination across India at such perilous time, is nothing else but putting lives of lakhs of young students at utmost risk and danger of disease and death. The best recourse at this stage can be to wait for some more time, let COVID-19 crisis subside and then only conduct these exams, in order to save lives of the students and their parents"
