NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) is a highly competitive medical entrance exam in India. It is conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA) for admission to undergraduate medical courses in government and private medical colleges across the country.
One of the most frequently asked questions by aspiring medical students is about the age limit for NEET. The age limit for NEET 2024 is determined by the NTA and is subject to certain conditions.
As per the latest guidelines, the minimum age limit for NEET 2024 is 17 years as on December 31, 2024. The maximum age limit for NEET 2024 is 25 years for general category candidates. However, there is a relaxation of 5 years in the upper age limit for candidates belonging to reserved categories, including SC/ST/OBC/PwD.
It is important to note that candidates must have completed 17 years of age at the time of admission or on or before December 31, 2024. Any candidate who does not meet the age criteria will not be eligible to appear for NEET 2024.
It is advisable for aspiring medical students to carefully go through the official NEET 2024 information brochure for detailed information on the age limit and other eligibility criteria. It is also recommended to regularly check the official NTA website for any updates or changes in the age limit or other exam-related information.
