UGC alters the age limit for NEET; No More 25+ allowed

There’s a sad news for all the medical aspirants above 25 years of age. University Grants Commission meeting in Delhi on Tuesday stated that the minimum age for NEET candidates will be 17 and the maximum 25. The cap on age for students from the reserved category will be 30. Also, candidates will only be allowed to take three attempts at cracking National Eligibility cum Entrance Test.

Till now, there wasn’t a maximum age defined to take the NEET nor a limit on the number of attempts. So this is BIG news for all the aspirants.

According to UGC, this cap on age and attempts will force candidates to focus on the field where their capability and passion lie, said principals.
