Students appearing for competitive exams JEE (Main) and NEET this year will get more choice in answering questions, said Union education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’.
Pokhriyal said the syllabus for CBSE exams has been reduced keeping in mind the pressure on students due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
And this time, the students preparing for class 10 and 12 board exams can prepare from the revised syllabus, he said.
“Since the curriculum was cut by 30 percent this year due to Covid-19, in the competitive examinations like JEE and NEET this year, the candidates will have more options to answer the questions,” said the minister.
He was interacting with the students of Kendriya Vidyalaya during a virtual event on Monday.
In a statement issued on Tuesday, the Ministry of Education clarified that the syllabus of JEE and NEET will remain unchanged in 2021.
However, unlike previous years, this year the candidates will get more choice in answering questions.
