To help needy JEE and NEET candidates who may require help in reaching the exam centres, students and alumni of various Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) have launched a portal, Eduride.
Acknowledging the present situation and talking about Eduride, V Ramgopal Rao, IIT Delhi Director,
“During COVID-19 crisis, one of the major concerns amongst students is regarding the difficulty in reaching the exam centres. Students and alumni of IITs have promptly come forward and launched a dedicated portal to connect with good samaritans who may want to help the needy candidates.”
V Ramgopal Rao added,
“After registration of alumni, volunteers and candidates, the portal will connect appropriate combinations of volunteers and candidates via exchange of contact details. The two can then coordinate to plan the travel to the exam centre. The donated money will help the organisers fund cab service for the exam-takers on the day of the exam.”
Deferred twice, the NEET exam is now scheduled to be held on September 13, and JEE-Main has been planned from September 1-6.
