This year, the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2017 will be held on May 7 and that leaves the candidates roughly just about two weeks left for their preparation. Emotions are running high as the days are drawing nearer. In 2016, the Government of India, along with the Supreme Court, had decided to replace all state PMTs with NEET.
