Few candidates are usually quite casual about carrying admit card to the exam center. However, for NEET, carrying the admit card along with a valid photo ID proof is incumbent as no student can get access inside the exam premises without their respective hal ticket.

Besides requirement of documents, CBSE has also mandated a proper dress code that all candidates must adhere to. The failure to abide by these guidelines can lead to unnecessary time waste or even debarment from exam hall.

The reason cited behind imposing more restrictions with formal dress code and providing a long list of barred items along with the mandate to carry important documents is to prevent any mischievous candidates from taking undue advantage of technology.
