NEET 2018 - The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a notice on March 5, 2018, instructing NIOS students and Private candidates on how they can fill the Class XI details in their NEET 2018 application form. From this year onwards, it is mandatory for all candidates to fill their Class XI details in the application form of NEET 2018. As per media reports, students from the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS), state-level Open School Boards and Private candidates had expressed concerns regarding what they should fill in these fields, given that they directly write their Class XII exams without appearing in Class XI. The fields that candidates are required to fill for Class XI include the name of the school, year of passing and the complete school address. The CBSE has issued the new notice on the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) in keeping with the recent directives issued by the Delhi High Court as per which NIOS students, Private candidates and all other aspirants who were previously ineligible, have now been allowed to apply for NEET 2018.

Changes made to the NEET 2018 application form

The latest notice comes days after the Delhi High Court passed interim orders on February 26 and 28, 2018, staying the new NEET 2018 eligibility rules and allowing all candidates rendered ineligible to be able to apply for the exam. Following the Delhi High Court’s directive, the CBSE had issued a notice dated March 1 as per which it clarified that the following candidates could now apply for NEET 2018:

  1. Candidates belonging to UR category aged above 25 years.

  2. Candidates belonging to SC/ST/OBC category and persons entitled to reservation under the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, 2016 aged above 30 years.

  3. Candidates from NIOS/State Open School.

  4. Candidates who have passed Biology as an additional subject.

  5. Candidates who have passed as a private candidate.

The CBSE also updated the online NEET 2018 application form to allow the above candidates to apply.   The changes made to the NEET application form included:

  • Candidates born before May 7, 1993 (1988 in the case of reserved categories) who were not allowed to continue filling the form after the ‘Date of Birth’ field can now do so.

  • Under the section titled ‘12th {Academic Details (CLASS – 12th or Equivalent}’, all the open school options which were not present until now have been added to the ‘School Board of Class 12th/Qualifying Examination’ drop-down menu. These include the recognized state-level Open School Boards along with the ‘NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF OPEN SCHOOLING’ and ‘PRIVATE CANDIDATES IN CLASS XIIth’ options. The same changes have been introduced in the ‘10th {Academic Details (CLASS – 10th or Equivalent)}’ section as well.

Other important information for NIOS students and Private candidates

With the new CBSE notice, NIOS students and Private candidates can now easily fill the Class XI details in the NEET application form and submit the same without any hitches. These candidates should also keep the following points in mind:

  • If NIOS students and Private candidates are yet to appear for their Class XII final exam, then they should select their Qualifying Exam Code as ‘01’ and proceed with filling the other details in the NEET application form.

  • If NIOS students and Private candidates have already appeared for their Class XII final exam, then they should select their Qualifying Exam Code as ‘02’ and proceed with filling the marks obtained and other details in the NEET application form.

  • As per the Delhi High Court’s directives, NIOS students, Private candidates and all other affected aspirants are only allowed to apply for NEET 2018 for now. Whether they will be allowed to appear for the exam will be determined in the next hearing scheduled for April 16, 2018.

The NEET 2018 application form will close by 11 PM on March 9, 2018, and the exam will be conducted on May 6, 2018. All candidates who couldn’t fill the form earlier but have now been allowed to do so should complete and submit the same at the earliest.

ln this stream of neet there are many ups and downs are coming in practice exams which resulting into low self confidence due to low confidence we will be never there to give our best how to sustain motivated till final neet ug and do our best?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 17th Feb, 2020

Truth be told, NEET is one of the highest competitive entrance exams after 12th. And for every 1 Medical seat, statistics state that approximately 20-25 students apply. So you are in a race with another 24 Candidates whose dream only has been too become a Doctor, just like yours. Now with the kind of competition involved, stress, anxiety are bound to happen and this might result in Lower self confidence. Infact that is the normal cycle of a student. If your confidence doesn't get a little low you might never realise the intensity of the exam. Until you take a dip, you would never know the depth of the sea. At times, it is good to feel low because that is when you know how to pull up the strings and evolve much stronger. Now brain is an organ and it also needs rest. With the amount of pressure, that it goes through, it is bound to feel tired and that is the reason why we suffer from Brain fade at times. Try a SWOT analysis on yourself. Like write down your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to your motivation. If your strength is your memory power, use it to your advantage. Keep switching between subjects every hour or 2 so that the brain is kept fresh and doesnt get monotonous. For example, if you are studying from 10am to 5pm, study Physics for one hour, then shift to Chemistry and then to Biology. Do that every hour. And on Sunday mornings, take a mock test and in the evenings, take rest. That way your brain is refreshed. If your weakness that you cannot wake up early, compensate by studying until a little late in the night. Always tweak your lifestyle according to your strengths and what works in your favour. And always remember that Rome was not built in a day and a career is a diligent process.
