New Delhi: The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2020 has been postponed till the end of May, with Human Resource Development Minister Ramesh Pokharia asking the National Testing Agency (NTA) to extend the date of application correction window for students. Now, candidates can change the examination city and examination centre to appear for NEET 2020. Given that many students have been asked to go from their colleges and coaching institutions to their homes in the midst of the coronavirus epidemic, many students will be in a different location at the time of filling the form. Thus, students can now change their place to sit for the exam.
By April 14, applicants can make changes by visiting the official website.
