Last Modified: 20 Feb 2024

Don’t repeat the mistakes what others have done in the past few years while filling up the NEET application form. A few precautionary steps can help you get through the application process successfully. NEET 2019 exam will be held on 5th May, for which the registration process will begin from 1st November 2018. The National Testing Agency will conduct the exam in the offline mode. Candidates looking forward to getting into the finest MBBS and BDS colleges must read through the article and not make an error while filling in the NEET 2019 online application form.

  1. Check Spelling: The spelling of the details like name, address, father and mother names inserted in the NEET exam application form should match with the Aaadhar details. The Date of Birth of the candidates must be the same as mentioned on the card. All the credentials must be authentic. After submitting the form if you realise making some mistakes, wait for the correction window but never fill another application form. Submitting more than one application form will undoubtedly cancel the candidature of the candidate.
  2. Postal Address with Correct PIN: The postal address of candidates must have the correct pin code. Ensure that the address is correct. As per the NEET Information Bulletin, 'It will be the responsibility of the candidate to ensure that filled-in postal and contact details in the Application Form are correct. Candidates must also ensure that address and contact details given by them be such at which candidate may be able to get the communication until the counselling is over'.
  3. No Offline Payment: The NEET application fee can only be paid through online. There are three modes of payment - debit and credit card, net banking and e-wallet. Offline payment through demand draft, cheque or challan will not be accepted under any circumstances. Only after successful payment of the application fee, the candidates will be able to take a printout of the confirmation page. Failing to complete the payment process successfully will disqualify your candidature.
  4. Digital Images with Right Format & Size: The digital images of the signature and photographs cannot be anything other than the prescribed size desired by the Agency. Ensure the images are clear and legible. Forms that have unclear and illegible images will instantly be disqualified. The background of the images should be white. The signature should be on a clear white paper with black or blue ball pen. Both the images should not exceed the prescribed size (for photograph 10 KB to 100 KB and signature 3 KB to 20 KB).
  5. Wrong Qualification Code: The minimum academic qualification to appear in the 2019 NEET exam is Class XII pass. The students must have scored a minimum of 50% marks in Chemistry, Physics and Biotechnology/Biology subjects. If you belong to the reserved categories, the minimum percentage is 40% in aggregate. Candidates who have passed the 12th standard from any State Open School or National Institute of Open Schooling can apply for the entrance test. The age of the general candidates should be between 17 years and 25 years; for the reserved category, the upper age limit is 30 years.
