What is NEET?

The National Testing Agency (NTA) conducts NEET for admission to MBBS, BDS, AYUSH, Veterinary and other medical/paramedical courses in India. The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) is the sole entrance test for admission to MBBS and BDS courses in India. The exam is conducted annually. NEET 2021 will be held at around 155 test centres in India. With approximately 16 lakh test-takers, NEET is the most important medical entrance examination in India for UG admissions. NEET 2021 Registration forms are expected to be released anytime soon in the last week of February. Notably, AIIMS and JIPMER MBBS exams have been discontinued, and now the admission to both these institutes also happens through NEET.

On February 2, 2021 CBSE released the datesheet for class 10 and class 12 board exams. It was speculated that NTA along with education ministry may announce notification regarding NEET 2021 dates. But no such announcement was made by the NTA. Earlier, it was expected that education ministry might provide some clarity on NEET 2021 dates and syllabus in the first half of February but nothing has happen yet.

Earlier in January NTA has announced the dates for JEE mains which had led to the anticipation among the NEET aspirants that NTA will soon announce the NEET 2021 dates. It is now expected that the NEET 2021 dates can be announced in the second half of February now. According to the regular schedule of NEET it is also expected that NEET 2021 exam will take place in the last week of June after the class 12 board exam concludes.
