NEET 2019 – Application photos without names would be legitimate

NEET 2019 – Within a few weeks since the closure of the online correction window for NEET or the National Eligibility Entrance Test, the National Testing Agency (NTA) has come up with a pressing issue of applicants uploading anonymous photographs without their respective names or dates mentioned.

Thankfully, the NTA has come out stating that the candidatures with unmentioned names and dates would still be considered for applications and will not be deemed rejected on any accounts. The official notification from NTA was quoted stating, “The photograph uploaded by the candidates without name and date and white background are acceptable. The application form will not be rejected in this case”

With the online correction window closed on January 31, 2019, the news was a welcome joy to the aspiring applicants who had made the aforementioned error. With NEET being a testimony to their educational skills and a waypoint in their careers to come, this announcement has sure come in on the good side.

The NEET exam is a three-hour long written exam where the applicants are tested on their knowledge over Physics, Chemistry and Biology. The test has a total of 180 questions – 90 from Biology, and 45 each from Physics and Chemistry. Even though the questions are pulled out from the 11th and 12th syllabus of the respective subjects, NEET stands out for its mark system. Every correct answer fetches 4 marks while an incorrect answer results in negative marks. On the bright side, questions unanswered do not carry any such penalty. It would a tough task to chose the right question to answer unless one doesn’t mind the negative marks.

The NEET exams for the year 2019 is scheduled on May 5, 2019, with the admit card available to download from April 15, 2019, onwards. The results for this year’s exams are to be expected on June 5th, the same year.
