New Delhi, April 16: National Testing Agency (NTA), which is the exam conducting body, has re-issued the admit card of NEET 2019, after the original release was marked with discrepancies. The admit card when released in the first instance on April 15 incorrectly showed the exam date as April 15, instead of May 5. Also, in some cases students are claiming they have been allotted exam centres in states other than their own. In the new release, the glitches relating to the exam date have been resolved. 

However, confusion related to allotment of exam centres still remains as it is not clear whether it the students at fault or the NTA making a mess of the allotment process. For example, if a candidate incorrectly selected an exam state, then NTA will not be responsible for problems arising because of such exam centre allotments.

Interestingly, when NTA first released the admit card link, it was not operational for a long time. It was finally activated around 8 pm. When anxious candidates logged in to download the admit card, they found to their surprise the exam date was wrongly mentioned. 


Clarification from NTA

NTA authorities even though didn’t directly acknowledge the glitches, they did come up with a press notification clarifying that the exam will be conducted on May 5 as scheduled. Also to their credit, they worked on the problem and fixed it around 10 pm, the same day. The newly released admit card has the correct exam date.
