Chennai: The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (Neet) is all set to take place on Sunday in 103 centres across the country. About 88,000 students from across the state have applied for the Common Entrance Test.
In all 11,35,105 students from across the country want to pursue medical courses. The three-hour examination, which is to begin at 10 am, will be conducted in seven centres across the state, which would include Chennai, Namakkal, Tirunelveli, Salem, Tiruchy, Madurai and Coimbatore.
The state is opposed to the test that is being conducted for admissions to MBBS and BDS courses in medical and dental colleges run with an approval of Medical Council of India and Dental Council of India.
The test will be conducted in eight regional languages including Tamil along, with English and Hindi. Keeping in mind the rise in the number of cases of mass cheating in various board exam centres across the country this year, the CBSE has also issued a set of guidelines to be followed by those planning to write the test, which include a restriction on what to wear to the centres.
“All the clocks at exam centres will be synced with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) website’s time. Though the aspirants cannot carry watches into the halls, they need to follow CBSE timings,” Sanyam Bhardwaj, director, Neet, said in a report.
The hall ticket inspection will begin at 9:30 am, after which the question papers will be distributed to students. They can begin answering the questions at 10.00 am, it was said....
