Along with boards, many competitive exams including NEET, JEE Main, UGC NET, UPSC Civil Services have also been put off.

The Union Ministry of Education on Monday had directed to postpone all offline examinations scheduled in May 2021 due to the steep rise in the Covid 19 cases. This decision will be applicable to all central higher educational institutions across the country.

However, the online examination may continue.
