The national-level entrance test is scheduled to be held on May 7 and while the initial date of availability of admit card was April 15, the same was delayed, following the orders of Hon’ Supreme Court.
But, not all is cool. Just within this past week, many of the students took it to the court requesting to postpone the NEET. Apparently, those students were the ones who applied for NEET 2017 after SC removed the age bar (older than 25 years), saying they couldn’t get enough time for the preparation. These students also plead that since there is no other medical entrance other than NEET for MBBS/BDS admissions, excluding few, it is of utmost importance that they get time to study.
However, SC denied the petition and said that the exam date for NEET 2017 won’t be changed. The students from Uttar Pradesh even tried out to the state Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for the same. The situation remains foggy at best for now, but it’s unlikely exam will see postponement.
NEET UG 2017 exam will be conducted in a single shift of three hours across 2,200+ test centers. After last year’s confused schedule, this time, NEET has been made compulsory for all the States.

A total of 63,985 seats in undergraduate programs are to be filled through NEET 2017.
Also, the inclusion of several regional languages will prove beneficial to the students. NEET 2017 will be conducted in 8 regional languages – Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi, Oriya, Tamil, and Telugu, apart from Hindi and English.
Over 11.5 lakh applications have been received by CBSE for NEET UG 2017. The number is way more than the previous year’s and almost the same as the registrations of JEE Main.
