(NEETUG) may not be conducted twice


As per the sources-NEET which stands for National Eligibility cum Entrance Test is one of the most important and majorly competitive entrance exams for medical students in India. It is a combined national level medical exam for all the students appearing for medical admission either in Government College or private medical college.

NTA also known as National Testing Agency is the newly appointed government body for the NEET examination from year 2019.

After above article  :-NEW DELHI: The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test – UG (NEETUG) may not be conducted twice in 2019 as planned. Also, the Human Resource Development Ministry is discussing a proposal of the health ministry to continue with the offline mode at least for 2019.

From 2019 the NEET exam has been proposed to be conducted twice a year –February & March. Students who get clearance in the NEET-UG(Under graduation) Exams are given admission in undergraduate courses-MBBS or BDS.

NEET has been declared as the only entrance exam which will be valid for medical admission in government medical college or private medical college. There are number of changes which happened this year and a few are expected to be happening in 2019.

Let’s take a quick view at some of the fundamental changes that happened this year-

  • Earlier, students of Jammu & Kashmir, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana had to submit a Self Declaration form for getting eligible for the 15 % of seats which are under All India Quota also known as AIQ as these states were not the part of NEET’s AIQ scheme which means that those who qualified NEET could not seek MBBS or BDS seats in the medical colleges of these states under the All India Quota.

Now, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana have joined the AIQ scheme. Hence, no need to submit self declaration form anymore.

  • Earlier this year, CBSE announced that the NIOS (National Institute of Open Schooling) students or students of state open schools or private candidates would not be eligible for the NEET 2018 exam. It was also mentioned that a student will get a maximum of three attempts to crack the NEET exam and that the candidate should not be more than 25 years old to be considered eligible for the exam.

Thankfully, the court asked the CBSE to allow everyone to appear for the exam. Also, the official brochure did not mention any cap on the number of attempts in the NEET exam.

  • The CBSE used to prepare multiple sets of question papers in each of the ten languages in which the NEET exam takes place. On the Supreme Court’s directive, it agreed to have only one set of question paper in each language to ensure the uniformity of the difficulty level of the exam for all students.

Now, Students who choose English as their exam medium will get the NEET question paper in English only, while the students who choose Hindi, Urdu or any of the regional languages would get a bilingual NEET paper in which the questions will be published in English as well as the chosen language.
