Nearly 40,000 students belonging to Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh and Himachal Pradesh will appear for single shift National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Exam (NEET) to get admissions in around 2,500 MBBS seats in these areas.
Earlier Sikh students were not allowed to take their religious belongings (kirpan) inside the exam hall but now the rules are changed. Former BJP leader Charanjit Singh Barar said no authority can force any student to do so against their will. Under the article 25(1) nobody is allowed to touch anyone’s religious belonging. Authorities are requested to follow the rules and norms for the same. Otherwise strict action will be taken by the government.
The students have been called in two slots before the exam that starts at 10am on Sunday to manage rush of students. One group of students has been asked to enter examination centre between 7.30 am to 8.30 am and second group from 8.30am to 9.30am in order.
Dr Arvind Goyal, a NEET trainer said that the students should attempt all the questions carefully and should not rely on the guess work.“Those who have really worked hard for last two years will surely perform well, he added.
