NTA informed, “Only 178 candidates filled the application form and uploaded required documents and the number of candidates has hardly increased as of October 13, 2020. As applications are being accepted till 2pm on Tuesday." 

Since exam centre staff are barred from talking to the media so currently they are not answering to any of the query.

However, it is being informed that the same Covid-19 guidelines will be followed and candidates need to submit a health certificate to confirm their Covid-19 free status.
