Bhubaneswar: The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test Exam (NEET) that had been postponed in Odisha in the aftermath of Cyclone FANI, is scheduled to take place today across the State.
The exam that was set to take place on May 5 was shifted to May 20. Students will be writing the exam from 10 am to 1 pm.
The National Testing Agency (NTA) of the HRD ministry conducts the test every year in May for students to secure admission to state-run and private medical and dental colleges across the country for studying graduate and post-graduate courses.
The Health Ministry had decided to postpone the NEET examination in Odisha after cyclone Fani which caused massive destruction of property and partial shutdown of power and telecom services in the state.
