Here, Exam date of NIMCET 2020 is not extended but now the college exam date is extended. And that will crash the date of NIMCET exam - 31st May... How do we even suppose to take the exam?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 15th Apr, 2020

Chandani, at this point in time all these schedules are possible dates given the fact that lockdown has been extended until May 3rd. Now based on the Country's control of the pandemic the exams will be most probably rescheduled. NIMCET was scheduled for May 31st but again all dates are subjective to change based on the prognosis and control of the current situation. So do not worry about that.
