The National Eligibility Entrance Test is one of the most important entrance exams conducted for the students seeking admission to medical and BDS courses. The NEET Application Form was released online by NTA last week. Candidates can fill the application form by visiting the official website of NTA. The application form will be available from 01 November 2018 to 30 November 2018.
In order to help the students to fill the forms without errors, listed below are a few points to remember while filling the NEET Application Form in order to avoid mistakes and errors.
Check the Spelling and Information Properly
It is important to fill the form correctly in order to avoid any confusion or error in the admit card. While filling the online application it is necessary for candidates to check the details properly. It is to be noted that errors can be corrected only for certain sections. However, other personal information like father’s name, mother’s name, candidate’s name, mobile number, email ID will not be allowed to change. Thus, students must check all the details carefully before submitting the final form as even a minute error can cause difficulty at the time of admission.
The Medium of Language for Question Paper
NEET 2019 examination question paper will be available in 8 regional languages which include Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi, Odia, Kannada, Telugu, and Tamil. The paper will also be available in English, Hindi and Urdu based on the medium of the language which the student chooses. In case the candidate is opting for another language they will be allotted a bilingual paper. Thus, it is necessary to mention the right language for paper so as to avoid any ambiguity. In case no medium is mentioned, such students will be provided with a paper in the English language.
It is to be noted that language selection is not offered at all centres, regional language papers are offered only in certain examination centres. Thus, students are advised to apply as per their state domicile and not the corresponding state, as the regional language paper of the said state will be available only in the selected state. Example – In the state of Maharashtra, the regional language paper of Marathi will be made available and not any other language.
