The government withdrew its decisions taken in July to hold the test twice a year and in online mode only. The decision came in the wake of the recommendations given by the Ministry of Health, which raised concerns about conducting the exam twice a year saying such an arrangement might put additional pressure on students.

The registration process for the NEET 2019 will begin on November 1 2018. The dates were announced after the government said that it was dropping its plan on conducting NEET for medical and dental courses twice a year along with the Joint Entrance Examination-Main. Check the complete details here:
