NEET UG 2021 Entrance Exam: Students appearing for NEET-UG 2021 and JEE Main 2021 are eagerly waiting for a confirmation regarding the exam dates as speculations continue to grow that the exams conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) will be postponed again. The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET-UG 2021) is scheduled to be on August 1. However, the registration process, which usually starts 60 days prior to the exam date, has still not begun. Meanwhile, the JEE Main April and May sessions have been postponed and no new dates have been announced yet.Also Read - JEE Main 2022: NTA Reschedules Dates to June and July | Check Dates Here

According to a report by Dainik Jagan, the entire process of registration, application and allotment of exam centres takes about 45 days. So, even if the NTA announces NEET-UG 2021 registration today, candidates will have to be given at least 25 days time to enrol in the exams. Following the applications, the agency will need a few days to process them and allot exam centres. As a result, it appears to be very difficult for the NEET UG 2021 exam to be held on the scheduled date.
