Though NEET 2021 is scheduled for August 1, 2021, there are chances that the exam date might get revised as the education and health ministries are reviewing the current situation.
Application forms for NEET 2021 have not been released yet, making the aspirants anxious. However, there are speculations that NTA might postpone NEET 2021. The Union Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare are in conversation regarding the final schedule for the exam. They are reviewing the current situation to decide if it is conducive to conduct a national level exam on such a large scale before finalizing the dates.
Less Time Period Left For Exam Processes
As per the last notification released in March 2021, the exam is scheduled to be conducted on August 1, 2021. However, NTA has not even released the NEET 2021 application forms yet with just a month left for the scheduled exam. Usually, the application process commences around 60 days before the exam. One month is given to the applicants for completing their registration while formalities like allotment of exam centres, issuance of admit cards, etc are done in the second month. However, just a month is left now.
A senior official from the Education Ministry said, “We are in consultation with the health ministry regarding the NEET schedule. Since it is a single-day exam, we have to be very careful about the dates. We need to review the Covid situation in the entire country before conducting the exams.”
Exam Dates Were Announced Before Second Wave
The source also said that the date of August 1 was announced back in March when the second wave had not come. But the second wave of the pandemic has led to a lot of changes and a need to review the dates has arisen. The final call on the exam date will be taken after a thorough study of the lockdown status and COVID-19 cases in all the states. He further said that the decision will be conveyed to the students soon.
Sources from the ministry have also said that if the current situation would not be conducive for conducting the national level entrance exam then last year’s pattern of conducting the exam in September might be followed. Students are advised to wait for an official notification on the same.
Tamil Nadu State Government has invited opinion from the public on NEET exam. The opinion can be shared in not more than 5-pages on or before June 23.

Demands To Cancel NEET UG 2021

In early June, Stalin wrote to PM Narendra Modi requesting for exempting the students of Tamil Nadu from NEET. He further demanded for medical seats to be filled on the basis of Class XII scores. The state government is against holding the exam because of it being biased against the state board students due to the difference in syllabus. The former Chief Minister, K Karunanidhi also insisted on seats being filled on the basis of Class XII marks.

As per the schedule released by NTA, NEET 2021 is scheduled to be conducted on August 1. The situation created by the pandemic has brought us to the question of the exam postponing this year again.
Though the exam schedule has been released, NTA has not yet released the notification for National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2021. The application process and other details will be announced on the official website ntaneet.nic.in in the coming days. However, as per reports, there are chances of NEET 2021 being postponed due to the surge in COVID-19 cases throughout the country. Recently, the Prime Minister’s Office took the decision to postpone NEET PG till 31 August, 2021. However, no decision has been taken on NEET UG. As per the last official notice, NEET 2021 will be conducted on August 1, 2021 (Sunday).
Pen and Paper Mode Needs To Change?
The notice stated that NEET 2021 will be conducted in Pen and Paper Mode in 11 languages. However, amid the recent rises in COVID-19 cases, this method of examination is questionable. The Information Bulletin with detailed information on Eligibility Criteria, Syllabus, Examination Fees, Exam Centres, etc. will be announced soon.
NEET UG 2021: Will it be Postponed?
Last year, NEET UG was conducted on September 13, 2020. The second phase of the exam was conducted on October 14, 2020 for the students who either stayed in containment zones or were themselves infected by the virus. The situation this year is also similar, or considerably worse than last year. This has posed the question of postponement of the exam again this year.
Some other exams like JEE Main (April and May session), NEET PG 2021, Class XII board exams, UPSC CSE (Prelims) have already been postponed in light of the second wave of the pandemic. If the situation worsens, there are chances that NTA might postpone NEET UG 2021 too.
However, it must be kept in mind that NEET 2021 is scheduled for August 1, 2021, which is already quite late. So candidates must keep their preparation on track and rely only on official notice released on the website. Until any official communication about the postponement is conveyed, students must consider August 1 as the final date. Do check out some important topics for NEET UG 2021.
NEET UG 2021 is scheduled to be conducted on August 1, 2021. Given below is a list of important chapters based on the previous year question papers.
