In view of the ongoing pandemic situation, INI CET aspirants are now anxious and worried. Because some of the doctors are serving in COVID wards as COVID- warriors and frontline workers. This is a tough time for aspirants because taking exams without prior information during the pandemic is a hurdle for them. And some states are in lockdown or near lockdown situation and each and every state has its own guidelines for the pandemic like a number of days for quarantine etc. The aspirants are already burdened with the pressure of serving the country and saving the lives of Covid patients and taking the exam on such a short prior notice is tough. Due to rising pandemic cases, day by day aspirants vary in taking risks.
Commenting on the same, Gaurav Tyagi, Founder - Career Xpert said, “This is really a surprising decision for all the aspirants. Aspirants are also astonished at knowing about the date of the exam. Because already the government gave time in regards to NEET PG so aspirants were thinking all such exams like INI CET etc. will also be held somewhere in the month of July or August".
