New Delhi: While scores of students have been demanding that the Centre defer the NEET UG 2022 exam to September, Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on Tuesday indicated that there would be no postponement.

Asked if there would be a postponement of NEET UG 2022, Pradhan said, “I think majority of the students are prepared for the exam.”

Pradhan was speaking at the India Today Education Conclave in New Delhi.

“Students are always anxious. Senior principals are here. Educationists are here. They face this problem every month,” he said.

“Every month, there is an evaluation. Every month, there is an exam. Students come to them and say they are not prepared,” Pradhan replied.

“They face this problem every month. I face it annually. I think majority of the students are prepared for the exam,” he said, hinting that there would be no postponement.

Pradhan also delivered the keynote address at the conclave on ‘Reimagining Education: The Future of Learning’.

The Minister spoke about the need to adopt innovative and out-of-the-box methods to enhance access to quality and affordable education.
