NEET 2016 Phase 2 on July 24: 4.7 lakh candidates likely to appear

NEET 2016 Phase 2 on July 24About 4.7 lakh candidates will be appearing in NEET 2016 Phase 2 exam scheduled to be conducted on July 24, 2016 across India. The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test or NEET is a national level medical undergraduate entrance exam conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) for admission to government, private and deemed medical institutions across the country. For the academic year 2016-17, states have been allowed to administer their own test in case they do not wish to conduct admission on the basis of NEET scores. However, from the admission year 2017 only NEET will be accepted for admission to MBBS and BDS programmes in all medical and dental colleges.

According to officials, around 6, 67,657 candidates had registered for NEET 1, which was conducted on May 1 (AIPMT 2016 has been renamed as NEET Phase 1). The NEET 2016 Phase 2 can be taken by all candidates irrespective of their appearances in NEET 2016 Phase1/AIPMT 2016, held on May 1, 2016. However, candidates who appear for NEET 2016 Phase 2 will have to give up their candidature for NEET 2016 Phase 1/AIPMT 2016. This means examinees that who reappear for NEET 2, will lose their NEET phase 1 score. The examination authority Central Board of secondary education (CBSE) will release the NEET 2016 Phase 2 admit card for registered candidates on July 8, 2016.
