Following the UGC chairman’s announcement of plans to merge NEET, JEE and CUET, Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has rejected the possibility of merging the three in the near future. Education Minister, while addressing the students at a top coaching institute in Kota, clarified that the merger would not happen for at least the next 2 years.
Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla also attended the event hosted by the institute on their Jawahar Nagar campus. Interacting with the students, the education minister said that Kota was a mini India, where students from all over came together to work on their dreams.
In response to questions about the proposal for the merger of NEET and JEE Main into CUET, the Education Minister clarified that this was not on the table for the foreseeable future. While he didn’t dismiss the idea, he assured the students that if there was one, at least the merger wouldn’t happen in the next two years.
Regarding the technical errors reported during the recent investigation, the Minister of Education put the students at ease and assured them of full cooperation and assistance. Asking the students to think about the bigger goals, Pradhan said: “Students should view positive choices not as a burden, but as an obligation. Keep your mind big, remember to become a master, not a servant. Think of working for family, society, country.”
