NEET exam to be conducted in 103 cities this time

NEW DELHI:  The Government has increased the number of cities where the NEET examination would be conducted from 80 to 103 to make it easier for the students to reach the venues.


A mobile app has also been developed to help the nearly 12 lakh students, who are expected to take the Entrance cum Eligibility Test or NEET, locate the nearest test venue.


“The NEET examination, which is a medical entrance test that was conducted by the CBSE, got a better response. Therefore we have increased number of city centres,” HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar told reporters outside the Parliament.


“Earlier it was conducted in 80 cities. Now we have increased to 103 cities with thousands of centres and the new choice to the students for selection of nearby cities have been given. The exams are being conducted under the Ministry guidelines,” the HRD minister said.


The number of students appearing for the examination has also increased from 8 lakh to about 12 lakh this time, he said.


The HRD Minister said that an App has been made to help students locating the nearest examination centre.


Health Minister JP Nadda said “We have also included regional languages in the test. CBSE has agreed for this and accordingly the number of examination centres have also been increased.”


Thanking Javadekar, Nadda said that increasing the number of cities having examination centres is a great relief for students. (AGENCIES)
