NEET admit card 2018: The admit card for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) has been released on the official website – cbseneet.nic.in. All those candidates who had appeared for the same are required to check their respective results at the website itself. The exam will be conducted on May 6, 2018. A total of 11.38 lakh students registered for the NEET last year.
Also, since last year, CBSE made Aadhaar card mandatory for registration, however, they have to withdraw this rule due to Supreme Court’s order that accepted the Centre’s contention that students may be allowed to deposit other relevant ID. CBSE will not send admit card by post. A copy of the same will also be emailed to the candidates on their registered email id in PDF format.
Candidates will be allowed to enter the exam centre only with a valid admit card of NEET 2018 with passport size photograph affixed on it, a post-card size photograph affixed on proforma (space attached with the NEET 2018 admit card) and one separate passport size photograph to be affixed later on the attendance sheet of NEET in the examination hall.
CBSE has also issued an advisory informing candidates to not bring any other item at the examination centres except their admit cards. “There will not be any arrangement for safe keeping of any material at the centre. Neither CBSE nor centre will be responsible for any loss, delay etc.”

In a recent update, the High Court has directed CBSE to not reject the applications of open school candidates for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET)-UG till the challenge to the exam’s eligibility criteria is decided. Earlier, the CBSE had notified that open school students are ineligible to sit for the medical entrance exam for UG courses. However, open school candidates filed a petition against the CBSE’s eligibility criteria.
NEET 2018 counselling process
Like last year, the counselling process for the NEET examination is likely to be held in the month of June. The first counselling process will be held online for 15 per cent of general category seats. The candidates can fill their choice and lock it. After the first list of candidates will be declared, the board will start the second round of counselling process.
After the merit list will be published, the candidates have to report to the medical or dental colleges with authorised documents. The board will conduct the transfer of vacant seats to state quota, after the completion of the entire counselling process.
