Will NEET-UG 2021 get postponed ?


NEET is an all-India exam and is conducted in pen-and-paper mode. It is one of the major medical entrance exams in India. Every year, more than 20 lakh medical aspirants appear for the same.

Although the NEET 2021 Exam date is announced and has been scheduled for August 1 and the registration was extended to 14th May, an announcement regarding the release of NEET notification is still due. Once NTA releases the NEET application form, students can check out the official website to get more details regarding the form and application process.

Considering the rise in COVID-19 cases amidst the coronavirus pandemic and several board exams and entrance tests being postponed, students are curious to know whether NEET will be postponed this year as well as done last year.

Last year, NEET was conducted on September 13 first and once again was conducted on October 14 for all those students who were infected by COVID-19 or could not appear for the exam due to some reason. Both the sessions last year were held amongst the Coronavirus restrictions and adhering to the protocols associated. Candidates had to face several problems such as traveling to the examination centre in the absence of proper public transport and wearing gloves and masks throughout the exam. In 2021, the situation remains the same due to the covid-19 outbreak.

Last year the dates for the examination were declared on May 5 following a lot of confusion regarding the mode of the exam. There was a lot of confusion going on regarding the cancellation of the exam due to rising cases but after repeated requests from the aspirants to hold the paper, the dates were finally announced.

As per the final dates aren’t released till now, everyone should remain calm and focus on the exam preparation. Government definitely declare dates on the favour and for the benefits of students.

Stay healthy and safe.
