The Health Ministry has given the nod to conduct NEET Exam 2021 twice. Aspirants will be given the rank as per best of scores in two attempts. However, there is no confirmation yet on conducting the exam online. The NTA has permitted to conduct the exam two times a year, just like the JEE exam held four times a year. This means candidates can appear fit for the exam one or two times as per their choice. For those who appear for both the exams, the ranking will be based on the best of two scores.
The tentative date for NEET UG is in the 1st week of July. As per the official notifications, the exam syllabus has not been reduced. The Ministry still feels that students might not be prepared for the online exam and hence still have not come to any decision regarding the mode of the exam. Students will be notified soon regarding the mode of examination and other guidelines. Refer to the given table to check the important dates.
