National Testing Agency (NTA) is going to release the NEET 2022 application form soon for all the medical aspirants. Earlier, reports suggested that the information brochure shall be released in February 2022 and exams shall be held in July 2022. However, as of now, there is no official confirmation regarding these speculated dates. Another factor that has become a roadblock in the release of the NEET 2022 information brochure is the pending petition in the Supreme Court regarding the upper age limit for the NEET examination. Until there is a final judgment on that matter, candidates cannot expect the official notification.
