NEET 2019- only once in pen and paper Format

As for the twice a year or once a year debate, experts pointed out that the decision in the end is about the feasibility of the examination. “If the ministry was to consider pen and paper based format, the cost of conducting the examination twice a year could be an evident challenge.” Experts however are divided over the debate and believe that it would be a balancing act for the HRD ministry.

NEET 2019 would be conducted by the National Testing Agency, NTA as announced by HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar. However, instead of the proposed twice a year, the examination may be conducted once, in the month of May or June, as was the case under CBSE till this year. As per the announcement, NTA had planned NEET 2019 to be conducted in computer based format I February 2019 and then again in May 2019.

Though the reports have not been confirmed as yet, the sources have shared that Health Ministry has approached HRD to reconsider its plan to conduct the examinations in online or computer based format. The health ministry has also reportedly asked HRD to rethink its decision to conduct NEET twice a year.
