I have my class 10 original marksheet from digilocker. Is it accepted in neet 2020 form?

Naveen Meena Student Expert 9th Dec, 2019

Dear Mansi, this depends on the verifying body i.e. NTA. If your uploaded document is not upto the guidelines then NTA will send you mail regarding that onyl. If you don't receive any mail then consider your application to be good.

Also, it is mentioned that the documents from digilocker can be used for official purposes. So, I don't think there will be any problem. Still if NTA sends you a mail then you will have to comply.

All the best

Hope this helps
