DRESS CODE FOR NEET 2020 – New Update


NEET 2020 (UG) is conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA), independent and autonomous testing organization for conducting efficient, transparent and International standard test to enroll students for admission to higher education institutions (Medical).

Dress code is very important to appear for NEET entrance examination. There are some do’s and do not’s that the candidate has to maintain while appearing for the NEET examination. As frisking will be done before the candidate is allowed into the exam hall.

What is frisking?

                Frisking is a search done on candidate’s outer clothing where a person who does frisking will run his or her hands along the outer clothing or garment of the candidate to detect or find any bits of paper or any electronic device that contains the answers.  Frisking is also done using highly sensitive metal detectors. This process is done to avoid mal function during the examination. NTA conducts frisking with all comprehensive instructions given to the person who does this frisking process that is if the candidate is a girl, frisking will be done by a female and for male candidates frisking will be done by a male.  This frisking process will be extensive and it will be done compulsorily for every candidate who appears for the examination.

        Let us see what are the do’s and do not’s of dress code during NEET examination:

Candidates can wear simple light colored clothes. Designer wears are not allowed. Candidates are not permitted to wear long sleeves. Wear half sleeves.

Loosely tied pony tail or a clip will help to avoid time consumption while frisking.  Shoes are not permitted for both. Wear slippers, sandals without heels. Wrist watches are not allowed.
