NEW DELHI: The National Testing Agency (NTA) will conduct the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET 2021) for admission to undergraduate medical courses on Sunday (September 12, 2021).
The NEET-UG exam will take place between 2 PM and 5 PM in 202 test cities today. NTA, which conducts the exam, had recently received approval from the Supreme Court of India to conduct it as per schedule.
The top court had earlier rejected a plea filed by some students that said that NEET was clashing with other exams and called for rescheduling it or deferring the exam.
The NTA has taken adequate precautions for the safe conduct of the exam amid COVID-19 pandemic. The students need to follow the COVID-19-related guidelines and other safety measures introduced by the agency.
Before entering the exam hall, students will be provided with N95 masks and they are allowed to bring hand sanitizer bottles.
Mandatory frisking and dress code are among measures taken by the agency to ensure no student can adopt any unfair means (UFM) to clear the highly competitive exam.
