The first phase of National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test, which saw 6 lakh candidates register, was conducted on May 1 just three days after the Supreme Court made it compulsory for all students to appear for the exam for admissions to medical and dental colleges across India.
As thousands of students had not registered for the first phase, the second phase was held on July 24 and over 4 lakh students across the country appeared for the exam, out of which only around 1.5 lakh candidates were fresh applicants.
According to the top court’s verdict, students who registered for Phase I were allowed to appear for the next phase of NEET on July 24 but with a rider that they will have to give up their Phase I score.
