    By the order of the Delhi High Court, on February 24, 2018, CBSE released a notification allowing students of National Institute of Open Schooling(NIOS) to fill the application form for NEET 2018. CBSE clarified that it is the duty of Medical Council of India to decide the eligibility criteria. 

    Latest News: NEET 2019 Result  will be declared on June 5, 2019.

    CBSE only acts as the convenor of the examination and implements the guidelines set by MCI.

    Following this, central government decided to allow NIOS students to appear for NEET 2018.  Medical Council of India earlier prohibited the students from open schools to appear for NEET 2018 citing that they cannot match the level of the regular school student and hence should not be allowed to appear for the exam. This decision of the government came as a relief to the such candidates.

    Technical Glitch!

    A huge number of applicants were unable to complete the online NEET 2018 application process as the website asked them to fill in details such as the year they passed Class XI and the name of the school and its address where they studied. Students of NIOS appear directly for Class XII examination and do not appear for Class XI due to which they faced a huge problem.

    To counter this glitch CBSE released a public notice on March 05, 2018, stating that all the NIOS applicants will have to enter the details of their Class XII in the application form for the asked Class XI details.

    NIOS students will also have to follow the same procedure as the regular students. All the candidates have to fill the application form in an online mode at the official website of NEET.
