AIPMT 2016 NEWS
NATIONAL LEVEL OFFLINE TEST
Honorable Supreme Court has already declared that National Eligibility cum Entrance Test 2016 or NEET 2016 would be the only way for medical aspirants to get admission to MBBS or BDS programmes across India. NEET 2016 is to be conducted in 2 Phases. NEET Phase 1, Scheduled on May 1, 2016 is already over. Second Phase of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test 2016 will be held on July 24, 2016.
Many states have protested against NEET 2016, but the Supreme Court turned down their appeals. However, the students who were not able to prepare well for NEET Phase 1 can now attempt NEET Phase 2. AIPMT 2016 was considered as NEET Phase 1 and more than 6 Lakh students from all over India appeared for the exam.
The students who did not appear in NEET Phase 1 and those who feel that they did not get proper time to prepare for the exam are allowed to appear for NEET-2. But there is a little catch in this statement. The students who have already appeared for NEET-1 and want to attempt NEET -2 have to give up their candidature for Phase 1 Exam.
The scheduled date of NEET Phase 2 may get postponed if the CBSE and Medical Council of India (MCI) find it necessary. The court had made it clear that all other Entrance Tests for admission to any medical college or university will not be considered from now on.
According to NEET Phase 2 Exam Pattern, the paper will contain 180 Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs). A candidate can score maximum 720 marks in the exam. The paper will be divided into 4 sections (45 marks each) of Physics, Chemistry, Botany and Zoology. A student will be awarded 4 marks for every correct answer and 1 mark will be deducted for every wrong answer. A candidate will be given 3 hours to complete the test.
It is very important for a candidate to know about NEET Phase 2 Syllabus to score well in the exam. A candidate should focus on important topics and manage his or her time properly while preparing for the NEET exam.
The candidates can now wear their religious or customary dresses including Burqas at the Examination Centre. But they are required to reach the Test centres on time for proper frisking. Joint result of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test 2016 will be announced on August 17, 2016.
