Arjun, It is true that the MHRD has come up with a new schedule for JEE Mains, JEE Advanced and NEET 2020. JEE Main examination will be held between 1st-6th Sept, JEE advanced exam will be held on 27th Sept & NEET examination will be held on 13th Sept. At this point in time, this is the information we have. But NEET and JEE are National level entrance examinations conducted by NTA and KEAM is a State Level Entrance Examination. So we have to wait to hear from the State Education Minister as to how they want to take a call on this. There is no information regarding the admit card yet.
