Such candidates had to select the 'Customary Dress' option while filling the NEET application form 2022. Those opting to wear the customary dress have to report at least an hour early for proper frisking and security procedures. In such cases, candidates need to reach the exam centre by 12.30 pm so that there is sufficient time for proper security checks without any inconvenience to the candidate while maintaining the sanctity of the exam.

NEET 2022 Dress Code: COVID-19 Guidelines

Keeping in mind the safety of candidates on the exam day, the NEET dress code has undergone a few changes in the past couple of years and it is expected that the same will be followed for NEET 2022 as well. The dress code for NEET 2022 exam day during COVID times is listed below:

  • All candidates must wear a mask which is covering their nose and mouth.
  • They must carry a transparent water bottle with them, water dispenser facility has been discontinued as a preventive measure.

Items prohibited inside the NEET 2022 examination hall

Along with the NEET dress code 2022, NTA has listed the names of the things that a candidate is not supposed to carry on the day of the examination. If found in possession of any of the below-mentioned items, the candidate will not be allowed to complete the NEET 2022 examination and will have to leave the examination hall.

List of banned items at NEET 2022 exam centre:

  • Any test-based material (written/printed)

  • Eatables (packed or home-cooked unless a candidate has a certain health condition)

Candidates must note that the NEET exam centres will not have any designated space for storing the barred items. Hence, candidates should either hand over these items to their parents or guardians, or should not carry those to avoid any hassle.                

The NEET entrance test, which is conducted for admissions to the first year of MBBS/BDS and other undergraduate medical courses, has resulted in the dissolution of the other medical entrance examinations. This has made NEET the most important and popular medical entrance exam in India.

JEE and NEET are both held on an annual basis, and with limited seats, passing these exams becomes more difficult for students. Furthermore, the number of seats in medical colleges is much lower than in engineering colleges. Due to the lesser number of seats available in medical colleges and the high level of competition in NEET getting into a good medical college is challenging. As for difficulty level, National Eligibility cum Entrance Test is slightly tougher than Joint Entrance Examination-Mains but easier than Joint Entrance Examination-Advanced, but that is subjective, as seats are comparatively limited in National Eligibility cum Entrance Test, making it more competitive. Least Difficult: JEE Mains. Difficult: NEET. Most Difficulty: JEE Advanced. I hope this will help you.
