The National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) is an undergraduate entry exam in India for all students who want to take a medical course in college. Whether you want to join a private or public institution of higher learning, you have to sit for this test.
The examination is usually conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA), which means it’s the same body that announces the results. The exam date for 2020 has already been announced to be on the 3rd of May. The examination is usually a pen-and-paper undertaking, and the applicants are required to complete the exam in one sitting.
This is a yearly undertaking that ensures only qualified students venture into the medical field. India tries as much as it can to uphold professionalism in this field because medics are responsible for people’s lives. The country’s Ministry of Health and Family Welfare usually oversees the admission of medical students.
If you’re passionate about medicine, you have to prepare for NEET because if you don’t pass, you miss your chance to join college. Even though it’s an exam like any other, you should treat it with the seriousness it deserves. Use all the resources at your disposal to ensure you ace the paper.
