The National Medical Commission abbreviated as NMC has removed the upper age limit for those students who are appearing in the NEET-Under Graduate 2022 exam, said the officials.

The upper age limit/cap put by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in 2017 was 25 years for unreserved candidates and 30 years for reserved candidates.

In a new notification, the CBSE had stated that “the upper age limit for NEET-UG is 25 years as on the date of examination with relaxation of five years for the candidates belonging to SC/ST/OBC category”.
