Important Latest Instruction on NEET 2018

We at Rus Education, believe that students should be well informed before taking their final examinations which will eventually help them to decide the course of their professional life. We understand that such last-minute instructions can unsettle a lot of young minds and hamper their performance on such an important day. After major scrutiny and discussion at multiple levels, the authorities are introducing essential requirements for candidates appearing in NEET – 2018.

This disciplinarian rule has been introduced in the system, to ascertain the quality of students who will eventually become doctors and safeguard the health of our citizens. Hereby, we have taken the entire section from the Information Booklet issued by the Central Board of Secondary Education; without any changes. This shall also serve as an eyeopener and a reinforcement of already available facts and brought out in various newspapers from time to time.

Hope this helps in the preparation of candidates for NEET – 2018 (UG Course which will be held on 6th May 2018) and succeed in their careers.
