Attention all students appearing for CUET, JEE Main (April session), and NEET 2024! The previously announced exam dates might undergo changes due to the upcoming Lok Sabha elections in India.

Here’s a breakdown of the situation:

  • The Election Commission has announced a multi-phase Lok Sabha election schedule starting April 19, 2024, and culminating in counting on June 4, 2024.
  • This schedule potentially clashes with the pre-determined dates for these crucial entrance exams conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA).
  • The official dates for CUET UG 2024 are May 15-31, NEET UG 2024 is on May 5, and JEE Main (April session) is from April 1-15.

Possible Changes:

  • NEET 2024: Currently scheduled for May 5, the exam might be pushed back to June 2024 to avoid any conflict with election processes.
  • CUET UG 2024: Originally planned for May 15-31, the exam might be rescheduled to begin in the second week of June.
  • JEE Main (April session): While a shift is less likely due to the earlier exam window (April 1-15), official confirmation is awaited.
