In a new twist to the existing debacle between students and the NTA, a fake circular claiming that the NEET (National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test) UG has been delayed to September 2022 was shared across social media. The Press Information Bureau (PIB) confirmed that the circular was fake, and that the exam will be held as per the date declared by the National Testing Authority (NTA) – 17th July 2022.
This is coming after lacs of medical exam aspirants have been urging the authorities to delay the exam given the overlap / closeness to other key exams (CBSE Boards, CUET & JEE Mains). Several movements have emerged across social media with hashtags such as #NTAdelayNEETUG, #JUSTICEforNEETUG, #DelayNEETUG trending on twitter with more than 14 lac shares.
Given that the NTA has remained hush on the issue, it is likely that the exam will be held on 17th July itself. The body will be releasing the admit cards soon which can be downloaded from the official website: www.ntaneet.nic.in
