NEET Exam Centre

The conducting board for NEET exams, the NTA – National Testing Agency makes an announcement on the list of NEET exam centres when the information brochure is released. The regulatory authorities organize exam centres in almost all the cities so that aspirants can appear for the exams in their vicinity.

Candidates are given an option to select four convenient cities of their choice in order of their priority as per convenience. Thereby, one can select city codes of their own city or from neighbouring cities of their state of residence. Please ensure that one is allowed to select cities from their state only and not out of their state of residence or far away cities in some other state. NTA does not take charge in case of any inconvenience caused as a result of inappropriate city code selection by candidates.

NEET exam centres are announced based on the trends of past years, primarily revolving around the number of applications received and the final applicants’ list. NTA reserves the right to not allot any exam centre for a particular city if the number of candidates that opt for a city is less than a bare minimum.

Also, aspirants need to make note that if the total number of candidates that opt for a city as an exam centre is less than a minimum count, with the preference of language being a regional language apart from Hindi and English, then in this scenario, candidates may be allotted an exam centre in another city regardless of the city opted by the candidates in order to appear for the NEET exams. This measure will be adopted only after every effort and step is observed to organize an exam centre in one of the cities specified by candidates as the NTA holds the right to allot a NEET exam centre other than the candidate’s choice.

This allotment of the exam centres is carried out digitally and not manually; without the intervention of officials. But candidates must make note of the fact that NTA being the regulatory body, carefully monitors the process, though allotted digitally, ensures that the candidates’ convenience and comfort are maintained as it is of utmost importance and priority.

The NEET exam centres cover all the cities in India, where the examination will be conducted. The application form for NEET 2021 was released on 13th July 2021, the first set to be filled and submitted by 6th August 2021.

The NTA has allotted nearly 2546 exam centres across 155 cities for NEET aspirants across the country. Over the years, there have been several additions to the list of centres that offer students to take up exams. Recently there was an update that the Union Territory of Ladakh has been appointed as a new exam centre for NEET exams, thereby serving as an encouragement for students to take up medicine as a career. The latest was addition of Kuwait and Dubai as an exam city for NEET 2021.

Most of the candidates are here with a common question – “how to check the NEET exam centre”. You can read further on to explore the answer. Candidates are advised to pick the exam centre carefully after closely studying the options as there can be a case wherein the exam centre selected by candidates may lead to an inability of the exams to be carried out by the conducting authorities there, due to reasons such as accommodation, in which scenario, the candidates would be allotted the second prioritized city while filling up the application form. Hence, it is suggested to check the list of NEET exam centres.

NEET 2021 shall be conducted on 12th September 2021. The exact details of the exam centres of every candidate will be stated in the NEET 2021 admit card. This admit card is made available by the NTA to download 3 days prior to the date of examination. The last date to download the admit card from the official website shall also be announced.
