Recently, many students have been demanding to postpone JEE Main 2022 as board exams are clashing with it. Many have taken to Twitter and are hoping for Education Minister to intervene

As per the media reports, amid different exam dates being announced, Postpone JEE Mains is the primary demand by many students. JEE Mains 2022 and its clash with the board exam has been taken to Twitter now. Students who are preparing for their board exams, as well as for the engineering entrance exam say the decision to conduct JEE Mains 2022 in between the board exams is subject to worry.

Revised JEE Mains Date 2022 

Earlier, in a revised schedule, the National Testing Agency (NTA) had announced the JEE Main 2022 will be conducted on 21st, 24th, 25th, 29th April and 1st, 4th May 2022. Board exams are also slated to be conducted around the same time - the CBSE Class 12 Term 2 exams 2022 will begin on 26th April 2022. 

The NTA had received a representation from several student groups and stakeholders, seeking changes in the JEE Mains exam dates. The representation was submitted to avoid a direct clash with the board exams. The NTA then decided to postpone the JEE Main 2022 by a week.

Postpone JEE Mains 2022 Demand By Students

Although there is no direct clash between the dates for JEE Mains 2022 and board exams, students believe writing the JEE Mains in between the board exams may lead to poor performance in both. Hence, taking to Twitter, students have been constantly requesting the concerned authorities like National Testing Agency, NTA and even Education Minister to intervene and #PostponeJEEMains2022. Along with this, many students have also been using #JEEAfterBoards, in an attempt to get their requests noticed and voices heard.
