However, the declaration has stirred anxiety among aspirants who went back to their hometowns due to the country-wide lockdown announced by the prime minister, Narendra Modi. A lot of aspirants had opted for centres in the cities where they were being coached for the exam. 

Students from across the country travel to coaching hubs like Kota in Rajasthan, delhi or capital of the states  to prepare for these exams and then write the exams at these places as well. Which is why, at the time of applying, they would have picked examination centres closest to these coaching hubs. However, the lockdown has upset these plans for hundreds. Fearing that the new schedule will be announced late and give them very little time to travel, aspirants are now requesting the HRD minister on social media to allow a change in the examination centre for entrance tests. Now confined to home, many candidates took to social media to express their concern.
