The Supreme Court Bench, headed by Justice Arun Mishra and comprising Justices BR Gavai and Krishna Murari, said the careers could not be put in jeopardy and students may lose an academic year. Looking forward towards the decision of the Supreme Court, certain guidelines were passed for all the precautionary measures to be taken while conducting an exam on the National Level. But despite the announcement of dates for conducting examinations, many students took a toll on the internet and stood against the decision of the court, forwarded various hashtags, posts, memes, etc showing their anger and concern towards the decision. Even famous YouTubers came forward to be in favour of students but irrespective of all the situations, the Central government didn’t move a step back, seemed to be way too serious in conducting examinations. But one NEET Aspirant named Swati Tripathi, in a video questioned guidelines given on the admit card. Apart from wearing a mask, NEET aspirants are also required to wear hand gloves. But Tripathi, in her video that has now gone viral, slams the government for being absolutely blind to the difficulties the students might experience amid a pandemic. She explains just how inconvenient it would be to write the paper with gloves on, particularly in hot and humid weather and especially for the students who need to solve test questions while wearing gloves.
“Despite the floods and the pandemic, how will we reach the exam centre, many of our parents have lost jobs, you are forcing them to go out of their way to arrange transport,” she says. She even challenges the MHRD minister to wear gloves and write for 20 minutes.
The entrance exams would be conducted in September across the country for 24 lakh aspirants. Many state governments are making arrangements for students, including transportation facilities, reopening of hotels for aspirants who will appear for the exams among others. Meanwhile, IIT Delhi Director has appealed to their alumni to come forward and help needy students reach their examination centres on time.
