With the sudden rise in COVID-19 cases in the country due to the second wave, all the entrance exams in the countries were postponed. The medical entrance examinations were also postponed.

Here are the latest updates on NEET PG, NEET UG, NEET SS, NEET MDS, INI CET, and DNB PDCET

On October 21, the top court had asked the Centre whether it would like to revisit the limit of rupees eight lakh annual income, fixed for determining the EWS category for reservation in NEET admissions for medical courses.

Thus the admission process which was halted will resume after November 16.

The NEET PG was conducted on September 12 and the provisional answer key was released on October 15, 2021. Around 16 lakh students have appeared for the examination this year.

NEET UG 2021
