Union Human Resource Development Minister Shri Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank had recently launched a new mobile app called the 'National Test Abhyas'. The App has been developed by NTA to enable candidates to take mock tests for upcoming NEET 2020 exam under the NTA's purview.
The app has been launched to facilitate candidates' access to high-quality mock tests in the safety and comfort of their homes since there was a demand for making up the loss to students due to closure of educational institutions and NTA's Test-Practice Centers (TPCs) due to the continuing lockdown.
