No Impact On Exam Eligibility For Voters In Lok Sabha Elections: National Testing Agency

The National Testing Agency (NTA) issued a clarification on Tuesday regarding messages circulating on social media, which claim that individuals who vote in the Lok Sabha elections 2024 and have their fingers inked will not be allowed to enter examination halls.

"The above messages are completely baseless, and NTA has not issued any such instruction or guideline. Students are requested not to pay heed to such rumours and to exercise their voting rights. Voting will not affect their eligibility to take examinations," the NTA said in an official release.

The testing agency advised students to focus on their studies and prepare for the forthcoming examinations.

In a major relief to students who missed the opportunity earlier to apply for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (Undergraduate) (NEET-UG) 2024 due to various reasons, the National Testing Agency (NTA) today reopened the registration window.

The application window opened today and will close on April 10 at 11.50pm. Interested and eligible candidates can apply by visiting the official website.

NEET (UG) 2024 will be held on May 5 from 2pm to 5.20pm nationwide and in 14 cities outside the country in pen and paper (offline) mode.
