NEET 2019: The National Test Agency (NTA) will release the application form of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2019 on November 01, 2018. Approximately 13 lakh NEET aspirants are expected to apply for the examination which is scheduled to be held on May 05, 2019.
Further, candidates can download their application forms which will soon be released on the official website cbseneet.nic.in. Since the exam is not conducted by the CBSE board, there is a high chance that the application form will be released on the old website rather than on nta.ac.in.
Notably, there is no change in the syllabus of NEET 2019. Thus, the candidates are advised to refer to the new NCERT Biology book as the old edition contains factual errors. The NEET exam will be conducted in pen and paper mode in 11 languages.
Following are the important dates to know:
1) Registration for NEET 2019 is open from November 01 to 30.
2) Admit card is available for download from April 15, 2018.
3) NEET 2019 results will be announced on June 05, 2018.
While many states are fighting for NEET to be conducted in the regional language, currently the exam is available in English, Hindi, Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi, Oriya, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu.
The exam pattern is the same as the last year with 180 questions which will be of 720 marks. Multiple choice type questions will be asked from Physics, Chemistry, Botany, and Zoology and each question carries 4 marks. For every wrong answer, one mark will be deducted from the total marks secured.
Since NEET 2019 is hard to crack, candidates are advised to take up crash courses available online.
