While talking to India TV Digital about NEET 2021, the NTA DG added, “We are in consultation with all the stakeholders and taking into consideration all possible aspects in the best interest of students. We expect to reach a final decision by the end of February.”

According to reports of Indiatvnews, last year in NEET 2020 examination, a total of 13.66 lakh candidates took part out of them, 7,71,500 cleared the examination. More than 5 lakh candidates were unable to clear the NEET 2020 examination.

According to sources, NEET 2021 examination could be held twice a year.  However, the final decision on this will be intimated through the official information bulletin. If the NEET 2021 exam is conducted twice a year, then candidates will have a better chance to clear the examination as the top scores of a candidate from both sessions will be considered for his/her admission process.

Changes in NEET 2021:

So far, the authorities have not introduced any changes officially but have not ruled out the possibility either. Early in February, Union education minister Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank, during his interaction with Times Now, had hinted at some major changes for NEET 2021 examination.

He denied any change in NEET 2021 syllabus during that interaction but he hinted at changes in the NEET 2021 exam pattern.

According to Pokhriyal, a candidate can expect the change in NEET 2021 exam pattern though he didn’t give any detail. The final exam pattern will be shared with the candidates through NEET 2021 information bulletin.
