NEET UG 2022 Postponement Notice has been seen circulating in media and PIB Fact Checker has now warned students against it as the notice is FAKE. For now, NEET UG 2022 will be held as scheduled on July 17.

NEET UG 2022 Postponement Notice

NEET UG 2022 Postponement Notice: Given the buzz revolving around the issue of NEET UG 2022 Postponement, it was seen recently that a notice by the National Testing Agency (NTA) has been circulating online which states that NEET UG 2022 has been postponed from July 17 to September 04, 2022. This notice, however, is FAKE and no such announcement has yet been made by the NTA.

To address this issue and stop the spread of this misinformation, the fact-checking team of the Press Information Bureau (PIB) of India took to Twitter on June 21 evening and conveyed to all the NEET 2022 aspirants that this notice is fake and that NTA has not issued any such notice.

Check the tweet by PIB Fact Check here:

For many weeks now, it is being seen on all social media platforms that the NEET UG aspirants have been demanding the postponement of the examination, be it through Twitter trends such as #JUSTICEforNEETUG, #NTAdeferNEETUG, and #MODIJIdeferNEETUG or through more direct ways such as writing to NTA and PM of India. The unversed may check the reasons for postponement here: Why NEET UG 2022 Should be Postponed?

In a more recent action, the India Wide Parents Association has written to PM Modi to appeal for a postponement by at least 4 weeks while earlier, over 10,000 aspirants had written to NTA demanding the same. Through a recent statement, NTA has now acknowledged receiving demands for the postponement but the agency is yet to make any announcement regarding the change in the schedule of the examination.

Chances are, NEET UG 2022 will be conducted as scheduled on July 17 and it is our constant advice to the students that they focus on studying instead of leaning heavily towards the postponement fiasco. If the exam stays unpostponed, it will affect the scores of the aspirants and subsequently, their careers.
