The National Testing Agency (NTA) has announced the exam date for NEET 2021 which has been scheduled to be conducted on August 1, 2021. The newly formed NTA which comes under the aegis of the Union Ministry of Education also said that the NEET exam will be conducted in a total of 11 languages across the country including English and Hindi.
The NTA also clarified that the exam will only be conducted in the traditional pen and paper mode, the Indian Express reported. The notification which has been released on the official website of NTA- ntaneet.nic.in- also has other vital details like syllabus, age criteria, reservation of seats, centres where examination will be conducted among others.
The three-hour exam that becomes the basis for students admission into different medical colleges across the country consists of three sections namely Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Students need to be extremely thorough with the NCERT or respective state board books of these three subjects for Class XI and XII respectively to ace the exam. Being one of the most competitive examinations in the country, the provision of negative marking is also to be kept in kind as every correct question in the exam fetches you four marks but every wrong answer is also penalised and results in deduction of one mark. Hence students are advised to exercise restraint in those questions where they are unsure about the answer and have no clue about other options listed in the question as well.
