How do NRI students sit for Neet?

NRI students can appear for NEET just like any other candidate, as long as they meet the eligibility criteria. Here’s how it works:

Taking the NEET exam:
  • Age Limit: Minimum 17 years, Maximum 25 years (5 attempts)
  • Educational Qualification: Passed Class 12 (or equivalent) with Physics, Chemistry, and Biology with at least 50% marks (40% for SC/ST/OBC).
  • Valid Passport: Mandatory for NRI category.
  • Apply online during the registration window (usually December).
  • Fill the NEET-UG application form on the NTA official website.
  • Submit required documents like passport, mark sheets, ID proof.
Exam Day:
  • Bring admit card and valid ID proof.
  • Follow the exam day instructions like dress code, prohibited items, etc
NRI Quota:
  • Qualifying NEET with a competitive score: This is crucial, as colleges will prioritize students with higher marks while filling NRI quota seats.
  • Meeting the bonafide NRI criteria: Each state defines its own criteria for bonafide NRI status. Generally, it involves having a blood relative (parent, sibling, aunt, uncle) residing abroad who sponsors your education.
  • Registering for state counselling sessions for NRI quota admissions: Once you secure a good NEET score, participate in the counselling rounds conducted by individual states to compete for NRI quota seats.

Remember, competition for NRI quota seats can be less compared to general seats, but securing a good NEET score is still crucial for admission.

I hope this clarifies how NRI students can sit for NEET and apply for NRI quota seats. Feel free to ask if you have any further questions!
