Jawaharlal Institute of Post Graduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER) has officially announced that admission to B.Sc Nursing and Allied Health Science programs in 2021-22 will be done on the basis of NEET UG 2021 score. Earlier, JIPMER conducted separate entrance exam for admission to such courses at the institute. As per a latest notice on the website jipmer.edu.in, the merit in National Eligibility cum Entrance Exam (NEET) 2021 for UG admissions will be considered. The NEET UG 2021 is scheduled to be held on August 01, 2021 as per official announcements by the National Testing Agency (NTA).
Although a separate entrance exam will not be conducted by JIPMER for B.Sc Nursing and Allied Health Sciences admissions in 2021, the institute will conduct the counselling & admission process. For this, candidates have to register separately on the JIPMER web portal for participating in the JIPMER Admission Process.
The National Testing Agency conducts the NEET UG examination every year for admission to MBBS, BDS, BAMS, BSMS, BUMS and BHMS courses. However, admission to B.Sc Nursing & Allied programs at JIPMER was not conducted on the basis of NEET till now. The Institute used to conduct their own Nursing entrance exam for admission to B.Sc Nursing & Allied Health Science programs. However for the upcoming academic session, admission to such courses at JIPMER will be done on the basis of NEET UG.
National Testing Agency has not yet released the details of NEET UG 2021. However, the exam date has already been announced and NEET UG 2021 is scheduled to be held on August 01, 2021. Along with the announcement of the NEET UG 2021 exam date, the NTA indicated that the exam will be conducted in 11 languages including English & Hindi. NEET UG 2021 is going to be conducted in the pen and paper based mode.
The NTA has not yet released the official information brochure of NEET UG 2021. All the details of the exam releases through the official website i.e. ntaneet.ac.in. Based on the latest updates available, the syllabus of the exam is based on the subjects of Biology, Physics and Chemistry as per the 10+2 difficulty level. Thus, indicative topics in the syllabus are similar to the topics included in the Class 11 & 12 academic curriculum. The Ministry of Education has already confirmed that there will be no reduction in the NEET syllabus for the upcoming exam.
Official exam pattern of the NEET UG 2021 exam is yet to be revealed by the NTA. Recently, a fake notification made rounds of the internet indicating certain changes in the NEET UG exam pattern. However, the unauthorised notice was quickly exposed as fake by the PIB. NEET UG 2021 exam pattern can be known once the NTA releases the official information brochure. Candidates are advised to keep a regular tab on the corresponding official websites for further updates in this regard.
