In previous years, the candidates remarked against the distracted environment in Kashmir on test centers due to some political reason and unrest between the citizens. After a discussion between the government and supreme court, Government had communicated to national board of education (NBE)  about the availability of infrastructure and facilities in further institutes for conducting the entrance test in Srinagar that had been considered for the safety purpose but NBE did not warm up the idea. The NBE further said that online exams have been conducted in past too in various technology parks in Kashmir. As a result, the action plan given by the NBE was not approved by state government to conduct examination in technology parks of Kashmir. Relevantly, this year, All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS), MBBS entrance test was also conducted in Srinagar at two test centers.
