A candidate took to Twitter urging the NTA, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan to postpone the exam citing several reasons.
One candidate tweeted, “#JEEAfterBoards if you had planned to take the exam in Jan, why did you not inform us back in Sept, why so late? And if this was a impromptu and unplanned decision, that too without considering student’s situation and just for the sake of normalisation, you are ruining our lives.”
