Earlier, the HRD minister Mr. Prakash Javadekar has also announced that the syllabus, difficulty level and pattern for all the exams will remain the same just the mode of exam will be changed to online.

A senior HRD official told that any changes in exam pattern or syllabus at short notice will be difficult for the students as they are also preparing for the board exams.

It is expected that the NTA will also publish the dates for UGC-NET, JEE-Main (January cycle) and NEET- UG (February cycle) on 1st September 2018.

Why will NTA conduct the JEE Main and NEET UG exams only in online mode?

As per the NTA officials, the students will be benefited by the computer-based exams in following ways:

  1. The computer-based exam will minimize the risk of paper leaks and cheatings as the software will be picking the questions randomly.
  2. NTA will use international assessment standards in computer-based exam which will decrease the role of rote learning and intensive coaching.
  3. The processing of exam will be easier and the declaration of result will be much faster.
