The National Testing Agency (NTA) has changed the exam centres for some of the candidates who will appear for National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test 2020 to be held on September 13 due to COVID-19 restrictions. The candidates, whose exam centres have been changed were informed through SMS, email and via phone.
The notification read, “There is no change in the centre cities of the candidates; only centres have been changed. Such candidates are advised to download their latest admit card available on NEET website-ntaneet.nic.in.”
Candidates are also advised to acquaint themselves with the location of the new examination centre allotted now, so that they do not face any difficulty in reaching the newly allotted centre.
The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare earlier released revised safety guidelines for conducting exams, which said, “Only those examination centers which are outside the containment zone shall be allowed to function. Staff/ examinees from containment zones shall not be permitted. Such examinees shall be given an opportunity to undertake the examination through other means or the Universities/Educational Institution/ Agency may consider appropriate measures in this regard.”
Over 15 lakh UG medical aspirants are preparing to write National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2020 scheduled for Sunday.
