Updated News SC NEET Age Limit, NIOS, Additional Bio Subject

Message from Dr. Amit Gupta Sir

In the Facebook Message of AG Sir, following updates was made in response to the NEET-UG Upper Age Limit, NIOS Eligibility and Additional Bio Subject.

I am hinting you something more on our plan of action:-

*NIOS & Additional Biology regular Candidates should stay eligible in #NEET2019 & onwards

For Age Limit issue, we have proposed an alternative solution for candidates (details of which can not be disclosed here)
*There is #No_Guarantee that all/any of our proposals gets accepted

If nothing works then we will fight back through Judiciary
*There is No reason to worry for NIOS & Additional Biology Candidates
*For Private & 25+ candidates, let’s keep our fingers crossed till NEET bulletin is released.

Meanwhile, Everyone should keep calm and focus on their studies

Some other candidate wrote this

After Diwali vacation our case would be listed, and probably that would be last hearing, and application form cutoff date would be 31st Nov. Friends, I can understand mental agony level but pls keep patience. If the court will remove upper age everyone going to appear in NEET-UG even after expiry of cut off date.

Remember, last year after court verdict NEET-UG 2017 application window was opened even after expiry of cut off date. We are trying for best. Just keep studying. Sometimes, everything not proceeds according to your wish. Also, got news about some changes in eligibility criteria…..but waiting for any official confirmation. I just performed whatever adviced by MCI’s committee members. and believe me I’m only trying to remove upper age limit completely without any term and conditions…Rest depends on MCI and Govt.

_Thanks for cooperate_
