"In view of the recent unanticipated surge in COVID-19 cases throughout the country, with the exponential rise of patients in the last seven days, it has been decided not to defer this examination, as the peak of cases remains unpredictable. Considering the importance of the examination in admitting post-graduates in their respective subjects for further training, it is in the best interest of candidates to continue to hold this examination on the announced date. Therefore, it has been decided to add further protective measures for the candidates, towards the safe conduct of this examination," the NBE was quoted as saying by DNA India.
Applicants are advised to refrain from attending the examination if they are unwell and have COVID-like symptoms or are proven COVID-19 for their own well-being and for the safety of others. It will be mandatory for all candidates to adhere to these instructions as part of COVID Appropriate Behaviour.
According to the report, NBE has increased the number of test centres and testing seats across the country such that candidates who had chosen the option “OTHERS” have been allotted test centres within the state of their correspondence address, thus avoiding any inter-state travel.
All applicants will be provided with a protective gear safety kit comprising of a face shield, a face mask and five hand sanitizer sachets. It will be mandatory for all candidates to wear the face shield at all times and during entry & exit where crowding is anticipated. Face shield will be required to be taken off during registration process and whenever face ID is verified during the exam.
Upon completion of the examination, candidates will be directed to leave the test venue in a staggered manner which will be communicated by the respective centre in-charges in order to avoid crowding at the test venue exit. The exit process is likely to be completed over a period of 1 to 1:30 hrs. Hence all candidates are urged to exercise patience, the report said.
