NEET UG 2018 5 last minute tips before appearing

Kochi: Father of a candidate from Tamil Nadu, who accompanied his son to NEET exam centre in Kochi died, on Sunday morning.

The district administration had also put up special facilitation centres in Thampanoor railway station and bus stand to provide the right information to the students.

Now, students are now left in a limbo. The state had abolished medical entrance exams, citing stress among students and the inability of rural students to afford coaching classes for entrance exams unlike their counterparts in cities.

While the majority of students posted for locations in other states need to travel to Ernakulam, there have been reports of Visakhapatnam and even Rajasthan. He said that the number of centres in Tamil Nadu was increased by 25% and that they were asked to accommodate students to their full capacity, after which around 1,10,000 students can be accommodated within the state. The underprivileged candidate from Tamil Nadu's Kuzhumur village had moved the Supreme Court against NEET and went all the way to Delhi to represent many aspirants like her. "The rest, maybe about 1000 or 1,500, were given the nearest available centres in neighbouring cities".

He said Chief Secretary Girija Vaidyanathan has spoken to her Kerala counterpart seeking assistance to bring Krishnasamy's body back to Tamil Nadu. Since the students have been left in a fix, Twitter users made a decision to pool in to help underprivileged students. Students can opt for courses like Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS), Bachelor of Dental Surgery, Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) etc after NEET examination. "Will book the tickets for you".

Candidates have been asked not to carry stationery items like bits of paper, geometry box, pencil box, plastic pouch, pen, scale, writing pad, eraser, mobile phones or bluetooth devices inside the examination hall.

Several Twitter users offered to help those students travelling outside the state to take the exam while some others blamed authorities for the confusion. As many as 24,720 aspirants had opted to take the exam in Tamil.

Actor Prasanna's tweet to sponsor students taking the NEET exam has led to a chain reaction.

NEET is the one stop gateway to prestigious medical colleges in the country. The role of CBSE is upto conduct of exam and declaration of result. The candidate login of NEET 2018 will be the single login page where registered users can sign in to see their forms, download admit card.
