So, the government rolled back the decision. The exam will now be held once in a year and in the pen-and-paper mode and not online. NTA will set up 3,000 practice centres for NEET UG examination all over the country. Which will function on Saturdays and Sundays & candidates will get around an hour to practice.NTA will start their free coaching centres for NEET aspirants. It may start functioning from May 2019.New Changes Introduced the candidates of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana need not have to submit Self Declaration form anymore because they have joined 15% All India Quota scheme. Aadhaar Card is not mandatory to fill the NEET Application. Any government ID proof can be used to apply for the exam.Indian candidates those want to pursue MBBS/BDS in foreign nationals, they are not allowed to move abroad to study if they have registered for NEET and could not qualify. The attempt limit has been removed from the last year. Now, candidates may attempt the NEET till the age limit as per their categories.NIOS or State Open School or private candidates’ are not eligible to appear NEET exam.There will be one set for question paper in all languages.

8 Keys to crack Medical Entrance exams at first at...

Every year, lakhs of students write the medical entrance test in India, out of which only a few hundred are able to achieve their goals. If you are aspiring to become a doctor and just entered class 11th then this is the right time for you to start your preparation to crack the medical entrance exams in the first attempt.  But still wondering how to start your preparation for NEET?? This article may help you to achieve your dream.Before getting into the details of how to start preparing for medical entrances, let’s have an overview of the top medical entrance examinations in India. The three major entrance exams conducted in India are NEET, AIIMS, and JIPMAR. Apart from there are no other entrance exams for MBBS in India.National Eligibility and Entrance Test or NEET is the one examination which would be considered for filling about 54,000 medical seats across the country. As per the Supreme Court’s order in 2016, NEET would be the only examination to fill the All India Quota Seats as well as the State Level Quota seats across the country. This examination is also valid for applying to private colleges across the country. From 2019 onwards NEET will be conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA).The All India Institute of Medical Sciences ( AIIMS) MBBS Entrance Examination is a national level undergraduate medical entrance exam conducted by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, for admissions to MBBS programmes offered in AIIMS, New Delhi and the eight other AIIMS campuses located at Delhi Extension Jhajjar, Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Jodhpur, Patna, Raipur, Rishikesh. AIIMS MBBS entrance will be considered for providing admission in 707 MBBS seats offered by seven different AIIMS institutions.JIPMER is a national level entrance exam to get admission in UG medical MBBS courses in Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research, Puducherry (JIPMER) which also conducts the exam every year. Admissions to JIPMER colleges in Puducherry and Karaikal is not done on the basis of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET). JIPMER has 200 seats, including 50 in its Karaikal (a region of Puducherry) branch.JIPMER and AIIMS conduct their own entrance exams and are, therefore, exempted from National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (UG) for admission to MBBS courses.Got a brief idea about all the medical entrances??? Now, let’s discuss the preparation strategy.1. Know your Syllabus-First of all, you should know the syllabus and exam pattern of the exam you are preparing for.

You can talk to your parents, teachers, seniors, elder brothers and sisters who have attempted/ cleared such the exams.7. Practice previous year question papers and supplementary materials-Try to gather the best medical entrance preparation materials, go through them all and finally stick to a few of them which seems suitable for you. Because following a lot of study materials may make your brain confused. You can collect these materials from the market or the internet. Collect previous year question paper and analyses the pattern of the question. Focus on the frequently asked questions, topics and pattern.8.  Do not fall for guesswork-Many candidates have the tendency of doing guesswork for solving questions they don’t know. In medical entrance exams, there is negative marking for every wrong answer. It is recommended to leave a question completely if you do not know the right answer. This is one of the most important tips to crack NEET or any other medical entrance.Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)Q1.
