The National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) 2018 began at 10am on May 6. More than 13.3 lakh students across the country are vying for 66,000 medical and dental seats. This means that for every seat there will be 20 students.

The exam will consist of one paper containing 180 objective type questions from Physics, Chemistry and Biology. NEET will be conducted in 11 languages across the country.

NEET was first introduced in May 2013 and was quickly scrapped in 2014, paving way for states to introduce their separate exams for medical and dental institutes. In 2016, the Supreme Court reintroduced NEET, making it the single window entrance exam for admission to all medical and dental institutes in the country.

Students doing last-minute preparations, long queues as students waited to enter the exam centres and anxious parents holding belts, metal jewellery and other personal effects (not allowed inside the exam centre) were a common sight outside exam centres on Sunday morning.
