NEET-JEE exam row: Greta Thunberg tweets in support of students

Aug 25, 2020 16:36 IST

Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg has tweeted in support of students protesting against Centre's decision to hold JEE and NEET examinations. Greta wrote it is was deeply unfair that students are being asked to take exams during a pandemic and amid extreme flood situation in some parts of India. Students are demanding postponement of the exams till the Covid-19 situation is under control and also saying that the pandemic has affected their preparation. The all-India entrance exams for medical and engineering colleges are scheduled for first and second week of September. Greta's message came a day after she herself returned to school almost after. She had taken a year off to raise awareness about climate change.
