According to various media reports, the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2018 will be conducted on Sunday, May 6 this year. With the 2018 NEET Bulletin and Application Form only expected to be released by the end of January, no official announcement of the exam date has yet been made by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), the NEET conducting body. However, a notice purportedly issued by the office of Dr. Sanyam Bhardwaj, Joint Secretary and Officer on Special Duty at the NEET unit of the CBSE, is currently available publicly. The notice states, “The Central Board of Secondary Education will conduct National Eligibility cum Entrance Test-UG on 6th May 2018 (Sunday) for the admission in MBBS/BDS courses for all the seats of MBBS/BDS throughout the country except for AIIMS & JIPMER, Puducherry”.

Repeated calls and emails to Dr. Bhardwaj’s office to confirm the authenticity of the notice have been met with no response. As per the CBSE NEET Helpdesk however,” The official notification of NEET 2018 will be released in the next week and the final dates of NEET UG will be confirmed through the official notification only.” When asked to comment on the authenticity of the notification carrying Dr. Bhardwaj’s name, the Helpdesk replied, “Do not believe any information other than the one released through CBSE NEET official website.”

Aspirants should note however that the probability of NEET 2018 being held on May 6 was always high, as the exam has traditionally always been conducted by the CBSE on the first Sunday of May.

 

Confusion caused by MCI report

As per the minutes of a Medical Council of India (MCI) executive committee meeting held on October 25, 2017 in New Delhi, NEET 2018 was scheduled to be conducted by May 10. This immediately triggered a flurry of news reports all of which proclaimed that the exam would definitely be held on May 10, and not May 6 as was being envisioned by aspirants. This led many aspirants to express their confusion as to why the CBSE had done away with the established procedure of holding the medical entrance exam on the first Sunday of May and was instead holding it on a Thursday. However, with neither the MCI nor the CBSE releasing any official announcement regarding the NEET 2018 exam date, and with Careers360 clarifying that the MCI had only given the CBSE approval to conduct the exam on any day before May 10 and not on that date specifically, aspirants were once again hopeful that the exam would be held on May 6.

 

CBSE confirms syllabus to remain unchanged

As aspirants waited for the CBSE to release their official notification to confirm the dates, news began to circulate that the syllabus for NEET 2018 would likely be changed to accommodate the interests of State Board students. This proposed last-minute change to the NEET 2018 syllabus led to many students and parents complaining to the CBSE office. Finally, on January 20, 2018, the exam conducting body announced on its official website that “The Syllabus of NEET(UG), 2018 will be exactly same as it was for NEET(UG), 2017. There is no change in the syllabus for NEET(UG), 2018”.

 

NIOS students still unsure about NEET eligibility

Another issue which has recently created controversy and left many aspirants waiting for the official NEET notification is regarding the status of National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) students. The proposal to bar NIOS and distance learning students from giving NEET was suggested by the MCI Executive Committee and is still being discussed at the ministerial level. CBSE is yet to officially announce their final decision on whether or not NIOS and distance learning students will be eligible to appear for NEET 2018 and the release of the official notification is being eagerly anticipated to lay these doubts to rest.

hi am likhitha am preparing for neet long term last year i had secured 148 marks in sc reservation category actually i was afraid to write this year can i get good marks in this year

Ruchika Chauhan Expert 21st Oct, 2019

Hello

Firstly, don't get afraid. Confidence and positive approach is must to crack any of the competitive exams.

As you have already appeared for the exam last year, you will be well aware about the syllabus and pattern of the exam.


You should make a time table and schedule your studies in such as way that you complete the whole syllabus well before and have last few days just for revision.


Make your concepts clear. If your fundamentals will be clear, you won't face much difficulty to solve the questions.


Speed and Accuracy both are the key factors to score good marks in the exam. So, you should solve as many questions as you can. Practice mock tests, solve previous year question papers. It will help you a lot.


After attempting mock tests, analyze your performance and then work accordingly on your weaker and stronger areas.


I would like to suggest you that you should have strong will power to achieve anything. Fearing from any exam will not help. Whatever happened last year, take it as an experience and prepare for the NEET 2020 fully focused and with determination. Don't let negative thoughts surround you.


You can also join any online preparation course. Careers360 Knockout is an effective program which helps student prepare using the Artificial Intelligence Technique. It consist of unlimited mock tests, video lectures, previous year papers, faculty support, etc.



All the Best!
