Health Ministry limits NEET attempts to three; NEET-2017 to be counted as the first attempt
CBSE will be conducting NEET (UG) on 07.05.2017. It was decided by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in consultation with MCI that there shall be an upper age limit of 25 years as on the date of exam with 5 years relaxation for reserved categories and a maximum of 3 attempts for all candidates.
In the information bulletin published by CBSE on its website, it was mentioned that the candidates who have already appeared in AIPMT/NEET on three occasions are not allowed to take this examination.
It is now clarified that since any new regulation takes effect prospectively, NEET-2017 shall be counted as the first attempt for this purpose irrespective of the previous attempts in AIPMT/NEET, subject to the upper age limit. CBSE has been advised to make necessary corrections in the information bulletin and on their website cbseneet.nic.in ¬so that any application is not rejected on this ground. Data pertaining to applications already rejected will be erased so that rejected applications can be filed afresh.
