    Can we make NEET correction after the correction date ends?



      NTA does not allow the NEET aspirants to fill out the corrections after the NEET correction window ends. You should make the required correction before the correction window ends.


    I missed the NEET last date for application. Can I fill the form now?



      NTA has not allowed any extension of last date for filling the application form to apply for NEET UG. You would need to wait for another year to fill the application form for NEET UG.
