As per the minutes of a Medical Council of India (MCI) executive committee meeting held on October 25, 2017 in New Delhi, the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2018 is likely to be conducted by May 10, 2018. Aspirants should note that it has not been mentioned anywhere that the exam will be most definitely held on May 10, just that the MCI has given the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) approval to conduct the exam on any day before May 10, 2018. A notice regarding the official NEET 2018 dates is expected to be released by the CBSE by January 2018 and only those dates should be taken as final by NEET UG candidates.

Unverified news reports cause confusion among NEET aspirants

With numerous media outlets and education portals reporting that NEET 2018 will be held on May 10, 2018, aspirants had begun 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.

As cited in almost all the portals, the information regarding the 2018 NEET calendar has emanated from a single source, a story carried in the Times of India (TOI) on December 5. The story, which confidently proclaims that the exam will be held on May 10, says that the information was officially announced by the MCI. No details about where or when the announcement was made were revealed.

All of the other dates mentioned in the TOI story match with the dates published in the MCI Executive Committee minutes. However, as mentioned above, the minutes only state that the exam will be held ‘by’ and not ‘on’ May 10. There still remains a strong possibility that the national level medical entrance will be conducted on May 6, 2018, as had been widely expected.

It should be re-emphasised here that neither the MCI nor the CBSE have released any official announcement regarding the NEET 2018 exam date and thus, candidates are advised to wait before considering the unofficial dates which have appeared in the media as final.

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
