NEET 2021 exam date, application form date, and other details are still awaited from NTA. Education Minister is going to announce the same details for the JEE Mains exam today, at 6 PM. However he has not clarified whether any such announcement will be done for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET UG) also.
NEET 2021 Exam Date, Application Form Date Announcement Possibility by Education Minister Today
Medical aspirant across the country are anticipating that the Education Minister may give some hint on NEET 2021 also, when he makes the critical announcements pertaining to JEE Mains. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank has tweeted:
Why we think there will not be any announcement on NEET 2021 today: Chances that he will announce NEET 2021 details today are less. This is because the Education Minister has only mentioned the engineering entrance exam in his tweet. Also, JEE Mains exam date is nearer (February), and NEET is later (most probable exam date till now is 2nd May 2021). Moreover, the recent issue of JEE Main 2021 exam dates being accidentally announced then withdrawn has caused some concerns among engineering aspirants, which are expected to be tackled first.
Why we think there WILL BE some announcement on NEET 2021 today: Even though the exam date of NEET is farther than JEE, the application form was expected to be issued in December 1st week. Also, the number of students waiting for NEET is significantly higher (JEE is taken by ~9-10 Lakh students, and NEET by ~15 lakh). A large number of queries to NTA, and Education Ministry are on NEET. Thus, there could be some announcement on NEET 2021 also today.
The latest available updates on NEET 2021 are as follows.
NEET 2021 Exam Date, Application Form Date Latest News
Neither NTA nor the Education Minister has made any announcement on NEET 2021 application form or exam date. The application form of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test was expected in the first week of December. However until now, there is no update on the matter. The delay in registration is because of several reasons, including the fact that counselling for MBBS seats is still going on in most states, and that the exam date for the NEET 2021 has not yet been decided.
Will NEET 2021 also be held 4 times like JEE Mains?
Unfortunately, no. NEET 2021 will be held only on a single date.
The Education Minister, in his last webinar had announced that there will not be any change in the syllabus or type of NEET exam.
Ever since NTA took over the JEE, NEET exams, NEET aspirants have been unhappy as to why NEET is held only once whereas JEE Main is held more than once. Until last year, JEE aspirants got two chances, and now they will get four. NEET aspirants on the other hand will have to focus all their efforts on a single exam date.
Will NEET 2021 be held online or offline?
Even though Ramesh Pokhriyal said that other aspects of NEET will not change. However he did hint that NTA is considering whether to hold the exam online or offline.
Also, the official press release says, “In terms of mode of conduct of examination – online and offline; the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and National Medical Commission (NMC) are being consulted in this regard, he added.“
Therefore whether NEET 2021 will be held online or offline will be clear as soon as NTA releases the NEET UG 2021 details.
