KCET 2020: The demand for postponement of Karnataka Common Entrance Test (KCET) 2020 is growing louder on social media platform Twitter, amid growing coronavirus cases in the state.The exam is scheduled for July 30 and 31 in Twitter

 Many Twitter users have started a hashtag #PostponeKCET2020 on Twitter. The hashtag has been trending with thousands tweets urging the authority to postpone KCET 2020.

The Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) released the admit card for the exam on July 17. Since the release of admit card a number of Twitter users (supposedly exam candidates) have been requesting the KEA to postpone the exam.

On Saturday, July 18, Karnataka registered 4,537 new cases, taking the total number of coronavirus cases in the state to 59,652, which includes 21,775 discharges and 1,240 deaths. State capital Bangalore accounts for more than 60% of all active cases in the state.

Tagging Ashwathnarayan CN, the minister for higher education, Karnataka, a twitter user wrote, “@drashwathcn Sir,On Sunday has 2208 cases and 75 people died till afternoon, the count will increase by the end of this day. Sir, it’s high time to consider postponement of KCET. Sir, our life is at stake, please sir. #postponekcet #postponekcet2020.”

 

Replying to a tweet of education minister S Suresh Kumar, a Twitter user wrote, “Sir pls postpone kcet, neet is in Sept what if we test positive after cet? how can we prepare for NEET. there are many droppers for neet if they can’t prepare in the last month it will ruin hard work done for years.U can’t even proceed counselling until neet is over #postponekcet2020”

Meanwhile, AIDSO Karnataka also launched ‘All Karnataka Protest Day’ on July 17 to protest against the Authority’s decision of conducting the exam amid the pandemic
