NEET 2018 application form: The official notification for the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) UG has been released by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on the official website – cbseneet.nic.in. Last year, Aadhaar card was made compulsory for all those wish to apply for the exam for validating personal details. The reason, as cited by the CBSE, is it helps to curb malpractices in the exam and multiple documents are not required during registration.
The exam is scheduled to be conducted on May 6 for admission to MBBS/BDS courses in India in medical/dental colleges. All those who do not possess an Aadhaar, are required to make application for Aadhaar enrollment at uidai.gov.in at the earliest. This is, however, not applicable in Jammu and Kashmir, Assam and Meghalaya.
