    NEET Photograph Attachment Guide

    Guidelines to Attach Photograph in NEET Application Form

    During registration, it is quite natural to make errors while choosing the photograph. Candidates often upload photographs which are not in accordance with the instructions and hence, such images get rejected. The common mistakes committed by the candidates and the correct sample of the photograph are given below:

    • Upload a photograph taken by a professional camera. Avoid using a cell phone to click a picture as the image might get distorted. Photographs with a coloured background (light/dark) are not accepted.
    • Look straight into the camera making eye contact for a clear image. Also, avoid wearing scarfs/muffler. Do not use it to cover your face. The face must cover more than 75% of the total area of the photograph. The photo clicked in improper lighting or flash must not be uploaded in NEET Application Form.
    • The photo with shadow on the face is quite unclear and not accepted by NTA. The face should be clearly visible in the photo. Check that the image uploaded must not be of poor digital resolution (100 x 75).
    • Wearing spectacles in the photo is acceptable but avoid wearing tinted glasses or goggles in the photo. The photo with too much glare or light on the spectacles will not be accepted.

    Note: The scanned image not meeting the photo requirements can be changed during NEET Form Correction. Candidates can upload an appropriate photo in the form and submit it again. The correct photo will be updated immediately in the form.
