Moreover, one link for the google forms is also seen being shared on Twitter in which students are asked if they are willing to participate in the protest.

Here’s what students say on Twitter:

The call for protest from the students comes after the University Grant Commission (UGC) reportedly proposed merging NEET UG and JEE main with CUET. As per the proposal of the UGC, one joint examination will be conducted in Computer-based Testing (CBT) mode which will happen twice every year. However, the proposal has received mixed responses and triggered a debate on social media platforms. The reason why the students oppose such a proposal they said, is the difference in the pattern of NEET and JEE papers as well as the level of difficulty for subjects.
