Millions of students are waiting for the announcement of NEET 2021 for admission in Medical UG i.e. MBBS and BDS courses. The examination for the first session of JEE Main has been completed, but the schedule of NEET has not been announced yet. Now information has come from the Central Government on the question of a change in the NEET exam pattern.
Thanks for tuning into our blog series. Read on to know what major changes are expected in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test or NEET 2021 pattern.
Will the NEET be conducted biannually?
The Ministry of Education wanted the Medical Entrance Examination to be conducted more than once a year, like engineering, and to shift it from pen-paper mode to computer mode. But there was no time agreement with the Ministry of Health. Although JEE Main exams are being four times a year and almost 28% of students in other attendants see their scores rising (based on 2020 results), such demand has started to increase for NEET-UG as well.
Higher Education Secretary Amit Khare added “we think NEET should be more than once a year. Because many times students are nervous due to an attachment and are unable to concentrate in the exam. Students will avoid getting spoiled for more than one exam. However, if the frequency of the exam increases, it will be shifted to computer mode. Because it will not be possible on pen-paper. ”
Will the pattern change this year?
Amit Khare has indicated that the pattern of NEET will be changed. But he also said that changing the pattern on short notice would be an injustice to the students. Changes in the pattern will be reported to students at least 6 to 8 months in advance.
When will the NEET 2021 exam?
Amit Khare said that the date of Neet UG 2021 will be announced soon. This examination can be conducted in June-July 2021.
