Guidelines Issued For Students Appearing For JEE & NEET 2020


As the JEE, NEET 2020 examinations are scheduled to take place in the month of September, the regulator issued several guidelines for the candidates in the wake of the novel coronavirus pandemic. The fresh guidelines came after the National Testing Agency (NTA) issued admit cards for the two exams scheduled to be held in September. As per the public notices issued by NTA, JEE (Main) April 2020 is scheduled from September 1-6, while NEET-UG 2020 exam is scheduled for September 13.



Here is a piece of information on the guidelines issued for conducting and appearing for JEE, NEET 2020 exams during the pandemic -


  • Students need not mandatorily need to wear a face mask and hand gloves while giving the exams, but they are instructed to carry a personal bottle of water and hand sanitizer to the exam centre as well as maintain social distancing. Apart from these items, only the Admit Card will be allowed inside the examination centre.

  • The candidate will be required to remove the mask worn by him or her from home, and "use the mask provided at centre only".

  • To avoid the crowd at the examination centre entrance due to candidates reaching together, they will be given staggered time slots for reporting.

  • The staggering of time slots will be done to ensure uniform distribution of candidates across rooms during entry at the examination centres.

  • A prior communication on this process of staggered entry will be shared with the candidates through admit card and through SMS.

  • Candidates need to maintain a space of at least 6 feet from each other at all time.

  • For those candidates who have a temperature higher than 99.4 degrees Fahrenheit, they will be taken to the Isolation Room.

  • All processes of frisking and document verification will be done after a period of 15-20 minutes. In this time their temperature may become even normal, if not they will be allowed to take the examination alone in a separate room.

  • All processes such as frisking, verification of documents will be done inside the Registration Room.

  • The candidate will display the admit card, ID proof and other documents if any for verification to the Invigilator on duty standing across the table.

  • Post-verification, the Invigilator will locate the Candidate’s seat in the seat allocation list and inform the candidate about his/her room number. At any point of time, the exam functionary would not touch any document of the candidate.

  • Before entering the exam hall, each student will have to wash their hands with soap and water and hand sanitizers will be available at various locations at the centre.

  • 50% of the Invigilators will be assigned to work inside the rooms, and 50% will monitor the entry outside the gate and registration room until the last candidate has taken their place inside the examination room/hall.

  • On completion of the exam, the candidates should be permitted to move out in an orderly manner – One candidate at a time.

  • The gloves and masks should be disposed of in a pedal push covered bin at the Examination Centre and outside the examination room/hall only.

  • Volunteers will be present along the exit path to ensure the orderly movement of candidates.
