NEW DELHI: Supreme Court has allowed medical aspiring candidates above the age of 25 years to appear in the NEET undergraduate exam 2019 for MBBS and BDS. However, the apex court has also specified that their candidature will be subject to the final outcome of the case on validity of CBSE decision to fix upper age limit.
The petition before the Supreme Court had challenged this explanation. The last date for filing applications for NEET-UG this year is November 30. Supreme Court has also asked NTA to extend the deadline for application process to allow such students to apply for the exam. The case will next be heard in February.
