  11. how many attempt in neet 2019

    1. there are not attempt limits in NEET

  12. How I can contact for test series conducted by NTA??

    1. It was supposed to release on 1st Aug, but its not yet available.

  13. As stated in this article “NTA decided to organize this exam in May 2019 and then again in December 2019.”
    Then why are the exams going to be conducted in February and May– it should rather be May and December.

    1. That was mistake in the article, it has been corrected. Exams will be conducted in Feb 2019 and May 2019. However as per latest information, ministry is reconsidering this decision and final details will be released soon.

  14. If maximum attempts at maximum time limit is unlimited, then you should not need to take a good test. You can enter all without exams because the maximum attempts at 3 time are not all Students will qualify properly and the 12th class or Those who are coaching new students in a year or two, your decision is five to six years and coaching because of those three Four students have passed exams in front of them, New students will not be able to perform any proforma Students who are poor according to your decision and further for five to six year All the students who have been 3 years and 4 years old will be easily selected and the poor new students will not be able to do the 6 in front of them Which sir Prakash jawadekar ji Has done that now there will be no maxim attempts for the neutral, it will be admission of all the old students. Will you post job for all these You will find that their status will be similar to the engineering students, the unemployed, the decision is wrong You should reconsider this decision. From 2016, students have already given their exams and they will be eligible for 2019 Due to Ineligible Declaration

    1. You are so wrong! Doctors save lives. Does engineer does that?! Don’t ever compare medical & engineering. they are two different paths & about decision jawdekar sir has made you are no one to point out whether it’s wrong or right. Do travel in rural areas where only 1-2 doctors are working & also there are places where there is no doctor/hospitals/clinics nearby and people have to go miles & miles in city for treatment.

    2. But there is age limit.

  15. I am 25 years; OBC candidate, am I eligible for NEET 2019? As it is not mentioned about any age relaxation for caste category?

  16. % requrement for neet 2019?

  17. Is up board private student can give neet exam??

    1. Final decision regarding private students is yet pending.

  18. Neet should be conducted 2 times as students will get more chance to score well and will get to know their weaknesses in first attempt. And exam pressure will minimise in 2nd attempt as already students will get a practice in first attempt.

    1. NEET 2019 was scheduled for Feb and May both, however as per recent information, Ministry is reconsidering their decision. Hope for best!!

  19. Neet should be conducted two times as this will give students more chance to do well.during first attempt students will get an exposure to exam and by working on their weak points they can give a 2nd attempt and don’t have to wait for a year. Some students also fear the exam so it will boost their confidence and they’ll be able to perform better in their 2nd attempt.

    1. NEET 2019 was scheduled for Feb and May both, however as per recent information, Ministry is reconsidering their decision. Lets hope for best decision.
