Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar announced that JEE Mains and NEET 2019– the two national level engineering and medical entrance examinations — will be held twice a year from 2019 by a newly-formed National Testing Agency (NTA).
The NTA was approved by the Union Cabinet in November 2017 as an autonomous and self-sustained premier testing organisation to conduct entrance examinations for higher educational institutions to bring in major reforms in the examination system.
“The National Testing Agency will conduct them this year. The same student can take the exam both times a year and the best score will be counted,” Javadekar told reporters.
He said all examinations under the NTA will be online. “Computer centres will be set up where students with no access to computers can practise from August-end or September,” the minister said. National Eligibility cum Entrance Test or NEET is conducted as an entrance examination for admission to various medical and allied courses available all across the country except in AIIMSs and JIPMER Pondicherry.
