The most awaited medical entrance exam of the year is finally here. NEET 2017 is on 07 May 2017. As more than 11 lakh candidates gear up to appear for it, there are few questions everyone wants to be answered. For instance, the dress code for NEET 2017 exam is crucial. Last year many students were not able to get admission to exam center as they had not followed the dress code. Another thing is the list of barred items. Again, carrying any such item that incriminates you will lead to disqualification. Also it is important to know the rules and regulations for CBSE NEET. Know all about NEET 2017 Dress Code, Barred Items, Rules and Regulations.

Note – NEET 2017 Dress Code has been formulated to minimize chances of a student using unfair means. Bulky clothes with accessories make invigilators suspicious that student is hiding notes or electronic devices. It is in fact, cases in the past that have spurred CBSE to lay down such strict dress code for the National Eligibility Entrance Test.

It may seem a bit inconvenient to students to follow such a dress code. But it is after all for the larger benefit of them only.

Adhere to the dress code so that the authorities can catch miscreants who do cheating.
