By: R Chandrakala on February 28, 2018

After receiving a lot of complaints from aspirants, the Central Board of Secondary Education has made it clear they would be conducting the NEET Examination only and not be deciding the eligibility criteria for the same.Students have had an issue with the fact that the candidates who have pursued schooling through National Institute of Open Learning/ State Open School or who have studied Biology/Biotechnology as an additional subject are ineligible to appear for the same. The Board has added that if students have or face any issue, they should approach Medical Council of India and submit their grievances. 

Candidates now would be required to read the information bulletin and FAQs on the NEET Website prior to sending grievances to the Board in any other form, as per the Board in an advisory.
