#ChaloJantarMantar is a go. Permission granted to organise protest against NTA for technical glitches during NEET, JEE, CUET.

The Maha Andolan against the National Testing Agency (NTA) and the technical glitches faced by the students during the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET), Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) and the Common Universities Entrance Test (CUET) will be held at Jantar Mantar in Delhi tomorrow, August 17, after permission was granted for the same.

Thousands of students have been flooding Twitter with the hashtag #ChaloJantarMantar in an attempt to rally protests against the NTA. The students are now demanding that the NTA conduct an extra attempt for all three exams this year, due to the fact that technical and administrative glitches caused the last-minute changes in the schedule for the students, leading to many of them missing the exams in the process.

The protest is allegedly being organised by student activist Pawan Bhadana. Meanwhile, the UGC Chairman, M Jagadesh Kumar has said that the issues during the CUET this year were not “setbacks” but “lessons”, and added that the UGC’s proposal to merge the NEET and JEE with the CUET will not be fazed by these issues.

While the Chairman added that time is required to formulate the plans for the merger, the move will come to the aid of students, preventing them from writing multiple entrance exams.

Why are students protesting?

The call for protest comes after the University Grant Commission (UGC) reportedly proposed merging NEET UG and JEE main with CUET. One joint examination will be conducted in Computer-based Testing (CBT) mode which will happen twice every year, as per the proposal. The proposal was met with mixed responses and triggered a debate on social media platforms. The reason for opposition to the proposal, students say, is difference in pattern of NEET and JEE papers as well as the level of difficulty for subjects.

Meanwhile, demands have been persistent from NEET aspirants for a second attempt citing irregularities in the exam and reports of paper rigging. On the other hand, groups of JEE Main aspirants have been demanding a third attempt claiming exam performance of several students was affected by technical issues, the report said.

One Nation One Exam: NEET UG, JEE Main, CUET Merger

Meanwhile, the University Grant Commission (UGC) has sent out a proposal to merge the NEET UG and JEE main exams into the Common University Entrance Test (CUET). As per the proposal only one entrance examination for all the JEE NEET and CUET will be conducted in CBT mode, twice a year. If accepted, students might have the chance of appearing for the examination once in say May – June (after the boards) and another in December.
