National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) attempts will be restricted to the maximum of three attempts to prevent students from trying their luck in clearing the test. Aspirants, who wish to appear for the dental and medical exam should see as to whether they match the age criteria mentioned by the authorities. To appear for the NEET exam, the minimum age would be 17 years. For reserved category students, maximum age would be 30 years and for the open category, it would be 25 years.
The main reason behind the introduction of this rule is the fact that most students who are unable to clear the test would join a BSc college and attempt the test repeatedly until they are able to pass the same. Also, the move would deter coaching class faculties from figuring out the changing pattern of this entrance exam. There have been instances where students have been misguided by coaching classes in a fraudulent manner. Thus the new move would compel the candidates who could not clear the test to figure out their own area of interest and pursue their courses in the same domain. The information brochures by NEET on this new rule would be circulated soon.
