After the Honorable Supreme Court refused to postpone NEET UG 2020 entrance exam, the Center has finalized the safety protocol for the students appearing for the exam.
Contact-less frisking, staggered time-slots for reporting and contact-less verification of documents like NEET UG admit card will be part of the safety protocol for NEET UG held by the National Testing Agency (NTA) on 13 September 2020.
NEET UG 2020 applicants will be required to carry a self-declaration regarding their COVID-free health status on the day of the NEET UG test and those with body temperature higher than the recommended will be allowed to take the test in isolated rooms.
As per the SOP finalized by NTA, strict measures are being put in place – pre-exam, conduct of exam and post-exam phases. As part of pre-examination measures, all exam centers would keep gloves, masks, hand sanitizers, sponges/cloth, disinfectant liquid with 1% sodium hypochlorite, disinfectant backpack spray machines for sanitizing floors and walls, thermo guns and individual water bottles for staff and candidates.
Before the start of NEET UG exam, all floors, walls and gates of the exam centers will be sanitized with disinfectants and those on exam duty will wear masks and gloves after staff verification. At the entry gate, the body temperature of the applicants will be recorded and if it is found to be more than 99.4 Degree Fahrenheit, the applicant will be taken to an isolation room. The process of document verification for such candidates will be done after 20 mins. By this time, if the temperature doesn’t come to normal then such candidate will be allowed to take exam alone in a separate room.
Candidates will be allowed in batches of 15 boys and 15 girls in two different registration rooms. Inside the NEET UG exam hall, candidates will be allowed to carry face mask, gloves, a personal transparent wear bottle, a small hand sanitizer and documents like NEET UG 2020 admit card and identity card.
