NEET Admit card – The candidates are advised to check whether they have taken the print of the admit card one day before the exam. Give a brief reading to it. Look at the instructions mentioned on the admit card. Often students ignore the instructions and reach the examination hall thinking that they will read the instruction on their way to the test centre. However, this habit can have serious outcomes. Generally all the instructions in the admit card also carry points to inform the students that whether they will be allowed to carry their valuables to the exam centre or whether they will be allowed to carry the pen and pencil or if they have to bring their own stationary. All these small things are very essential and crucial points.

Also carry the proforma with postcard photograph, one postcard photograph, and one passport size photograph.

Valid ID proof – These days all the exam conducting bodies do ask the students to carry a valid identity proof for verification purpose. Sometimes, if the photograph that is attested in the application form or admit card is not clearly visible, the valid ID proof can be used to verify the details of the candidates on the printed ID proof. Therefore, the candidates are informed through the admit cards about the documents they will need to carry on the day of the exam. Prepare all these documents one day before the exam and keep a file ready.
