To facilitate NEET applicants, the Medical Income Test – National Cum Income Eligibility Test (NEET) is conducted twice a year. According to the New Indian Express report, the Department of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) agreed to take the entrance medical exam twice a year. However, the schedule for admission to MBBS, BDS, AYUSH, and other medical courses has yet to be announced.
An anonymous official told the New Indian Express that there are a large number of students who do not want to enter the online mode for the national medical and dental entrance exam. Therefore, there is unanimous agreement on how to conduct the NEET review twice a year for the 2021-2022 meeting. NEET 2021 helps students rank for the top two scores twice a year when they show up for both sessions. It is the same format as last year for JEE Main. An anonymous NTA official told the New Indian Express that the idea of doing NEET twice a year would reduce stress and help medical professionals perform better.
Previously, the Ministries of Education and Health held a meeting with officials from the National Testing Agency (NTA), the governing body, to discuss the possibility of conducting NEET online twice a year. In 2021 Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal said in a live interaction that the Department of Education plans to run NEET more than once a year in 2021.
According to the press release of the Ministry of Education of January 19, 2021, the NEET program in 2021 will remain the same as last year. However, the internal option to answer questions is provided to aspiring physicians.
The application form for NEET 2021 is expected to be published soon on the official website. Only eligible candidates can complete the NEET application form to take the entrance exam. The NEET 2021 exam will be held across India for admission to 91,367 MBBS, 26,949 BDS, 52,720 AYUSH and 525 BVSc seats.
