The NTA had notified the NEET UG admit card on September 06, 2021, on its website.

Candidates, who face any problem in downloading the admit card of NEET 2021 or find any discrepancy in the same, can contact the concerned authorities at 011-40759000, or can also send an e-mail at [email protected]
NEET 2021 is an offline test held for a duration of 3 hours for a total of four subjects, i.e. physics, chemistry, botany and zoology. Each subject will have two sections. Section A will account for 35 questions and Section B will have 15 questions. In Section B, the candidates have to answer only 10 questions. Each correct answer will fetch 4 marks and for each wrong answer, a deduction of 1 mark is applicable. The exam will be held in a total of 11 languages.
With only two days left for the NEET 2021 exam now, it is really important that candidates follow some guidelines that help them in acing the exam with ease. To begin with, the first thing is to download the NEET UG admit card and cross-check the same for all the relevant information, viz. personal details, reporting time, exam centre venue, etc. The NTA has also assigned an e-pass for candidates, to ensure smooth travel on the exam day, owing to the lockdown situation prevalent in the country. Hence, the candidate must get a neat printout of the e-pass and carry it with them on the exam day.
This time, the NTA has added new centres, so that all the SOPs (including that of COVID-19) could be followed and excess crowding in the exam centre can be avoided. Hence, we advise the candidates to cross-check the exam centre address and locate the same before the exam. The best way to do the same is using Google Maps, for which, they need to just enter the exam venue address on the “To” option and their own address on the “From” option. The maps will provide the proper insight into the route, required time, traffic, etc, in a click.
The candidates should follow all the COVID-19 related SOPs, i.e. wearing a mask, using a hand sanitiser and following social distancing with fellow candidates. They should avoid any sort of contact with anyone on the exam premises too.
It is better to read out the handout released with the admit card and get a complete idea of the things that are allowed in the exam hall. This is because if the authorities find candidates possessing anything not allowed in the exam premise, then they can face disqualification.
The last and the most important guideline is to remain calm and composed in the exam hall during and after the test. A positive and relaxed state of mind can help the candidates in qualifying the exam with ease.
