Important Information on The NEET 2020 Exam Date

Sep 28, 20 Important Information on The NEET 2020 Exam Date

There have been many changes in the lives of people around the world throughout the COVID-19 global pandemic. One of the changes that occurred in India due to concerns of health risks associated with crowds and gatherings was a change to the NEET 2020 exam date.

Traditionally, the NEET 2020 exam date has been in May. This date was also announced earlier in the year by the NTA, the National Testing Agency. The NTA only began conducting these tests in 2019, and previously this was done by the Central Board of Secondary Education along with the Prometric Testing. Prometric testing is an American test administration company that oversees and administrates testing for different organizations and professions around the world.

The 2020 Changes

Due to concerns for student safety, the NTA rescheduled the NEET 2020 exam date to September 13, 2020. This was conducted as an in-person, pen and paper exam, following all the traditional protocols and requirements for students to apply and be accepted to write the exam.

Initially, some groups requested an additional delay on the test based on the ongoing health issues associated with COVID-19. However, through implementing specific protocols in the testing centers, the exam moved forward on the adjusted schedule.

The NEET 2021 exam date is yet to be provided. As in years past, the expectation is that it will be moved back from September to a day in May of 2021. The exam will only occur once in 2021, which is the same as the NEET exam schedule since 2017.
