Implement NEET Eligibility from next year Onwards

This petition had 3 supporters

Like the past year, the Education Board has come up new rules for NEET just before the exam, putting students who already have 3 attempts in trauma. Let us have a look at the new rules :

New Rules:

Candidates can appear for NEET only 3 times in lifetime.
Age limit for candidates is 25 for unreserved. Those from reserved category get a 5 year relaxation.

Reasons for changing Eligibility Criteria :
It is justified that 3 attempts have more advantage over 1 attempt. The board wants to refrain seniors from taking the exam as they get an undue advantage. Also, there has been a trend among coaching classes that their faculty members appear the examination to understand the changing trends in the examination. The 25 age bar will also bring an end to this trend.

The Effect of the Rule :
The rule will have a good impact, but from the next year onwards. For the current year, it does more bad than good. This rule has a very big negative impact on students who have prepared this year for their 4th attempt. 

Problem Caused :
This is a welcome move but the problem is its timing. It should be clearly understood by the education board that all academic decisions should be taken at the beginning of the academic year. Imagine that you have already attempted NEET 3 times, you are already depressed but still you studied hard for another 1 year for your 4th attempt and at the end of the year, you are not allowed to sit for the exam !

Solution :

Implement this eligibility criteria next year onwards.
