          NEET 2020 Application Form Correction

          NTA has again opened the facility of NEET 2020 Form Correction from Sep 23 to 30. The facility has been provided again because during the time of COVID-19 most of the candidates have faced difficulties in making corrections in the particulars in the Online Application Form.

          NEET 2021 – Next Year Plan

          • CBSE has decided to reduce the syllabus up to 30% from Class IX to XII. The syllabus has been reduced from all the subjects including physics, Chemistry, and Biology which are major subjects for NEET. This could affect the preparation of the candidates as they will not be able to understand the basics of the topics and will also not be able to solve the questions which are interrelated to curtailed topics. Read More Syllabus reduction impact on NEET 2021
          • With the reduction in the syllabus by CBSE, there are speculations that the syllabus for NEET 2021 could also be revised but no official announcement has been made yet by the respective authorities. 
          • The official notification of NEET 2021 is expected to release in the month of November 2020. 
          • As per the schedule followed by NEET in previous years, you can check the tentative dates for NEET 2021 below:
          EventsDate (Tentative)
          Release of application formNovember 2020

          Correction window availabilityJanuary 2021
          Availability of admit cardApril 2021
          Date of ExamMay 2021

          Reasons that could affect NEET 2021 Exam Date

          • Due to COVID-19 schools are closed and because of the high strength of students in the schools, we can expect that the school could be the last place to open after the lockdown is over. 
          • However, all the students are attending the classes in the online mode but still to complete the whole syllabus online is the biggest challenge. 
          • This may lead to the delay in the final exams of class 12 which could further lead to the delay of NEET 2021.

          NEET vs AIIMS MBBS

          Each year the NEET exam is conducted by the National Testing Agency whereas, AIIMS MBBS was being conducted by the All India Institutes of Medical Sciences, an autonomous body with its base in New Delhi. But just like all the other state medical entrance examinations, AIIMS MBBS was also quashed among other eligibility tests for admission into medical colleges across the country  

          Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan’s verdict on October 4, 2019 clearly stated that admission to all the MBBS courses including JIPMER and AIIMS must be done through a common entrance test known as NEET. AIIMS exam tests a candidate’s knowledge qualitatively but on the other hand, NEET tests quantitative knowledge of a candidate.  Major differences in the exam such as number of questions, mode of exam, etc. are mentioned below in a tabulated format -

          *transaction charges included separately.

          While the questions in NEET are predictable and mostly repeated, students applying for AIIMS did not even get to know any previous year questions. This made selection into AIIMS a difficult task, but not an impossible one. It is always a good idea to check the latest sample papers for NEET exam available at Collegedunia.com. Solving sample papers prior to the exam can turn out to be an asset for the students and might give them an upper hand in the exam. 

          NEET Helpline Numbers

          Considering the COVID-19 pandemic, for the help of candidates, NTA has come up with an exclusive helpline, candidates can contact the authorities regarding exam-related queries through text messages or SMS services. The helpline shall be operational from 9.30 AM to 5.30 PM. Read More
