NEET 2019: Goof up in Admit Card confuses medical aspirants
The National Testing Agency (NTA) which recently released the admit card for National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test for Undergraduate medical courses (UG) 2019, (NEET 2019) erroneously mentioned wrong examination date on the admit card.
Instead of May 5, 2019, which is the correct examination date for NEET 2019 this year, the NTA mistakenly mentioned April 15, 2019, the date on which, the admit card was released.
The goof up by the examination conducting body has apparently confused the MBBS and BDS aspirants who are vying for this entrance examination 2019. Meanwhile, the NTA mail id which has been given to report errors/ grievances was found to be not working by some of the medical aspirants.
With the above issues at the website, the aspirants took to social media to express their concern. Some of the tweets are mentioned below:
