    NEET 2022 and JEE 2022 Exams Soon; All the Recent Developments

    The two biggest exams of the country in engineering and medical i.e. the JEE and NEET Exams 2022 are soon-to-be-held by the National Testing Agency (NTA). Details and updates regarding the same are available on the JEE Main official website and the NEET Exam official website

    JEE Main 2022

    This is the all-India exam that is given by those B.Tech admissions in the top government and private medical colleges in India. This exam is held 4 times a year and the dates for the same were announced last year in December.

    The 1st session shall be held in February 2022. The registration and application periods for the same will be in January while the JEE Main Exam will be held in February, with results in March and counselling starting in July.

    Similarly, there will be 3 separate sessions in March, April, and May 2022.

    Candidates have the freedom to appear for more than 1 session. In such a case, the best score out of all the sessions will be considered for the merit list. This is the reason that the final All-India Ranks (AIRs) are revealed ONLY after the end of the 4th session.

    In the “Application Window” that is available before every session, candidates can change the particulars of their form or even register afresh.

    The Covid-19 pandemic impacted education mainly in the form of “syllabus reductions” by the boards. To incorporate this and ensure that candidates do not suffer due to a reduced school syllabus, the JEE Main exam 2022 offered “optional questions” with no negative marking.

    NEET Exam 2022

    The last point mentioned above regarding “optional questions” can also be said for this year’s NEET Exam. The only difference is that this exam will have negative marking for these questions.

    As per recent reports, the tentative date for the NEET Exam 2022 is May 2, 2022. Another important thing to remember is that candidates have to submit a bunch of information before the exam and the rest after the exam (but before the results). 

    This year, the exam shall be for seats in the MBBS, BDS, AYUSH, Veterinary as well as BSc Nursing and Life Science courses. The latter 2 have been added only this year.

    A good development coming for both these exams this year is that the “Age Criterion” has been removed as part of the tie-breaker policy. This means that if 2 candidates score the same marks, the “older” candidate won’t be preferred in the merit list.
