is there a dress code for NEET PG 2020 ?

Apoorva Student Expert 7th Dec, 2019

Hello dear student,

No there is no dress code as such for neet PG 2020 . But try to wear clothes like Trousers and simple pants are a preferred  for male candidates. Kurta pajama is not allowed. Shoes are strictly prohibited inside the examination hall. It is advisable that candidates wear sandals and chappal with a thin sole. For girls try not to wear tops with buttons wear something that can't be objected as metal detector detects something then that can be a problem. Avoid wearing earrings rather say jewellery because then you have to deposit it to someone at your own risk . Not every examination hall have the facility to keep students belonging safe. I hope this was helpful

Thank you
