Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, candidates this year were allowed to change their choice of examination. A total of 95,000 applicants had availed the facility and they have been accommodated against their revised choices.
Last week, the NTA released detailed guidelines for the exam where it stated that candidates will be given staggered time slots for reporting at the exam centre to avoid crowding.
Also, the staff members involved in conducting the examination and candidates will have to undergo thermal scans and anyone who displays COVID-19 symptoms will be placed in separate isolation rooms.
Examinees are permitted to carry a face mask, gloves, transparent water bottle, 50 ml hand sanitizer and exam-related documents.
A number of students, parents and political leaders have been demanding the postponement of the exam due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On 17 August, the Supreme Court of India dismissed a plea seeking the postponement of JEE Main and NEET UG exams this year. The apex court said the postponement of the exams will result in students losing an academic year and will put their careers in peril.
NEET is conducted for students seeking admission to MBBS/ BDS courses and other undergraduate medical programmes in approved/ recognised medical, dental colleges and institutes in the country.
The fee is non-refundable and the facility to raise objections against the answer key will be available till 12 October up to 7 pm.
