JEE Mains 2020: 75% candidates in Bengal could not write exams on Tuesday because of Covid-19 situation, says Mamata – education


JEE Mains 2020: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said that 75 per cent of the state’s candidates could not take JEE on Tuesday while only half of them managed to turn up in exam centres in other states because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation.

She said that her government had made the entire arrangements for the students, but only 1,167 wrote the test though 4,652 candidates were scheduled to seem for it on Tuesday, the first day of the examination.

“The students are in great trouble. They were not ready to attempt the JEE examinations. In other states, more than 50 per cent of the students were not ready to seem for it on account of the pandemic situation,” Banerjee told reporters.

The chief minister had earlier requested the Centre not to hold the JEE amid the pandemic situation.
