The National Testing Agency (NTA) is yet to announce the date for the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) 2021. As the NTA has announced dates for all 4 sessions of JEE Mains, students are now waiting for the agency to declare the dates for the medical entrance exam.
The entrance exam is usually conducted once a year by the National Testing Agency (NTA) on the first Sunday of May.
As per the report by TOI, the NEET UG exam will have no changes this year. Speaking to TOI, Amit Khare, secretary, higher education, stated that the exam will be conducted in pen and paper mode between June and July 2021.
Khare also stated that although there were demands for multiple sessions in the online mode, biology students might need more time to practise and get used to the computer-based exam. Thus, he added, before any such decision, they will give six to eight months’ notice.
He added that the exam dates will be announced soon.
In February, Pokhriyal, while speaking to Times Now, had announced that the Ministry of Education is considering conducting NEET 2021 more than once, just like JEE Main 2021.
Last year, NEET was conducted on September 13 amid strict precautions in view of the COVID-19 pandemic—over 14.37 lakh candidates had appeared for it despite the protest to postpone the exam amid the pandemic.
