NEET 2021: Education Ministry to soon decide on MBBS entrance test
New Delhi: The Ministry of Education is expected to soon decide on conducting the remaining editions of the medical entrance test NEET 2021 in August, according to officials.
"The situation is being reviewed to decide on the schedule of the pending editions of JEE-Mains and whether NEET-UG can be conducted on August 1," a senior official informed PTI.
While no further decision was taken on NEET-UG, the registration for the exam, which was supposed to commence from May 1, was kept in abeyance.
Medical Dialogues had earlier reported that NTA, operative under the Ministry of Education, the government of India, had informed that the NEET (UG) 2021 would be conducted in 11 languages, through Pen & Paper mode on 01 August 2021 (Sunday).
The notice by NTA had further informed that the Information Bulletin containing detailed information regarding the Test, syllabus, eligibility criteria for age, reservation, categorization of seats, examination fee, cities of examination, State Code, etc. would be available shortly on the official website after the commencement of submission of Application Forms.
However, this uncertainty has surely taken a toll among the students making them anxious about their future.
Uncertain over the conduct of NEET 2021, MBBS aspirants are waiting for the National Testing Agency (NTA) to release the application form and information brochure for MBBS entrance exam. Although the website got activated a couple of days ago, students are yet to get answers to their queries related to the examination which is scheduled to take place in August this year.
Anxious and stressed, students have started demanding the immediate release of the application form and clarity regarding the matter. NTA has not yet released any information on its official website neet.nta.nic.in
Earlier, the students started raising their voices and demanding for the deferment of the undergraduate medical entrance examination till October 2021.
