Soon after the clarification issued on NEET 2017 eligibility criteria by the Medical Council of India in response to a official letter from the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a notification stating that NEET 2017 will be treated as the first attempt for all medical aspirants. More importantly, the candidates who could not fill the NEET 2017 application form earlier due to the previously introduced restriction of three attempts will be now able to do so. The CBSE has already made the requisite changes to the application form.

In a notification undersigned by the Joint Secretary & OSD (NEET) and available on the CBSE website, the organizing body has emphasized upon the withdrawal of NEET eligibility criteria regarding the number of attempts. “NEET 2017 will be counted as first attempt for all the candidates. Changes have been effected by CBSE accordingly in the application form,” declares the notice. It further states that, “All candidates who could not fill up the application form due to the condition of three attempts at AIPMT/NEET will now be able to fill up their application form,” reads the notification.

Earlier on February 3, 2017, the Medical Council of India (MCI) had scrapped the NEET 2017 criteria that limited the number of attempts for the national level exam. The MCI had clarified that the cap of three attempts on NEET would continue but 2017 would be counted as the first attempt for all candidates. This came as a response to controversy which had been generated by the introduction of new eligibility criteria for NEET 2017, which introduced an age cap of 25 for general candidates, and eliminated those candidates from the admission process who had already attempted NEET/AIPMT thrice in the past.

 

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare had sought a clarification from the MCI regarding this rule, following which the MCI directed the CBSE to take the appropriate steps to revise the same, as made clear in the latest notification.

i have given code 2 in my neet qualifying examination code.i hvae passed my 10 from icse board and my 12 from Karnataka puc board.is my code 3 and i have already edited my neet form so if its wrong i cant change it so will it be a problem for me during counselling under state quota in Karnataka.

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 28th Jan, 2020

Your code will be 03 because you completed your PUC from Karnataka. Code 03 says: The Intermediate/Pre-degree Examination in Science of an Indian University/Board or other recognised examining body with Physics, Chemistry, Biology /Biotechnology (which shall include practical test in these subjects) and also English as a compulsory subject.

But if you have already utilised the correction window once, you cannot use it again. While this will not cause any issues during the State Counselling, please write to NEET helpdesk at their official email id: neetug-nta@nic.in

I opted for EWS category in neet application form but my ews certificate will be made in march. So will i be eligible for ews catagory? plzz answer!!

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 28th Jan, 2020

Rishabh, NTA clearly mentions that what you enter in the Application form is completely in your jurisdiction and NTA will neither entertain nor make any corrections in the application form at any cost.  Which means that by any chance if your EWS certificate doesn't come through you will not be considered under General Category. You will be still considered as a Candidate belonging to EWS Category. And if you fail to submit the relevant document during document verification your admission might stand cancelled. Having said this, as you said that your EWS certificate might come in March and the exam is due in June, you still have time to get the certificate done. You will need the certificate atleast by the time of counselling and document verification.

Hello Sir / Madam Im a neet aspirant for 2020 . My category is OBC and (PwD) 40 percentile (visual disability.) How much Marks should I score to get into MBBS/BDS in a preferably good medical college? Regards

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 28th Jan, 2020

Cut offs change every year depending on various factors such as no.of Candidates appearing for the exam, no.of Candidates qualified, top NEET score and difficulty of the exam. Now the cut offs are different for All India Counselling and State Counsellings. States like Delhi, Jharkhand, Tamilnadu and Biihar have relatively higher cut offs than States like Meghalaya, Assam, Karnataka, etc. But in general if you are opting for All India Counselling, you will need atleast 550-575 for a seat in a decent College even in mop up round. Under State Counselling, you will need nothing less than 525-550. This again depends on the State you belong to.

please suggest what should i do now as did my signature in my neet application form with blue pen instead of black ink pen.

Pooja Kaushik 28th Jan, 2020
Hi Arsh,
If there is any problem regarding your signature , you will immediately be notified by NTA through a mail.
So if you have not received a mail,it is not at all a problem but in case of you have received any mail regrading this then re upload your signature with black pen.

Hope it helps
