If,I failed in physics,does betterment in physics accepted in neet
First of all, in neet there is criteria of percentile nowadays. So no one can be judged on behalf of fail or pass. Now come to part of physics, so being a medical aspirant you should have good grip over physics in order to improve your rank. This will help you alot to get good rank. I suggest you should not avoid it.
I have once made correction in photos for neet 2020. but I scanned postcard photo (hard copy ) and resize it to upload it for passport photo .do I need to change passport photo ? pls tell
Mrunal, you haven't mentioned when you made these changes and if NTA has notified about regarding making the changes to the Passport Photograph. Your Photograph should be atleast between a size of 10kb and 200kb with JPG format and 2.5*3.5 inches with 72 DPI. Now your face should also be 80% clear and ears should be visible. If this holds the case with your uploaded Photograph, then you are fine and you needn't upload another Passport size photo. But if you feel that the photograph is not clear, then we would suggest you to make the changes. And the last date for making corrections to the NEET application form is July 15th and so you may have to hurry. If you are changing the Passport Photograph, make sure to take the print out of the confirmation page for your future reference.
