Number of Attempts in NEET
According to a notification by CBSE, dated 31st January, 2017, maximum number of attempts in NEET were limited to 3. The notification was taken to imply that those who have already had their 3 attempts in the past will not be allowed to appear from NEET 2017.
However, on 3rd February, CBSE released a notification as a clarification to the confusion caused by the previous one. Here‘s the latest official notification. According to this announcement, no. of attempts are still 3, but they will be counted from NEET 2017 onwards. So NEET 2017 will be your first attempt.
This will come as a relief to many as they will not be required to be worried about ‘their last attempt’.
NEET, National Eligibility cum Entrance Examinations was introduced for the first time in 2016. It took the form of the country’s sole medical entrance examination, through which all medical colleges, run by the central and state governments, as well as private institutions and minority institutions, will admit students. AIIMS, however, refused to be a part of NEET because they believed this would bring down the standard of AIIMS entrance exam.
NEET 2017 is scheduled to be held on 7th of May. Although your remaining number of attempts in NEET are three, you must prepare well to crack it in your first attempt itself.
