NEET-2019 Age Criteria Relaxed. Application Date Extended
In view of the Hon’ble Supreme Court’s Order in SLP (C) No(s). 14320/2018 and in other connected matters, dated 29th November, 2018, candidates who are 25 years of age and above shall be entitled to apply and appear in the NEET (UG)-2019 examination provisionally subject to final outcome of these matter.
Earlier, NTA had specified an upper age limit of 25 years for General Category candidates and a further relaxation of 5 years for Reserved Category candidates.
