The Ministry of Education has announced a new National Eligibility cum Entrance Test Undergraduate (NEET-UG) exam centre city in Dubai. The new exam centre in Dubai is additional to the already existing Kuwait centre.
Mr. Keshav Maheshwari (Managing Director, ALLEN Overseas) said that due to lack of a NEET-UG examination centre anywhere within the Gulf region including International travel restrictions thanks to COVID last year, thousands of deserving NRI/OCI medical aspirants faced extreme difficulties in flying back to India to appear for NEET-UG 2020 examination, while many abandoned their attempt due to aforementioned difficulties.
Keeping this in sight, ALLEN Career Institute tried hard to urge the NEET Examination Centre within the Gulf Countries so that students don’t need to face such problems in the future. After putting in tons of efforts and communicating regularly with NTA, MOE, and Honorable Lok Sabha Speaker, finally, our efforts have Bourne the fruits of success when the Ministry of Education announced a new National Eligibility cum Entrance Test Undergraduate (NEET-UG) exam centre city in Dubai. This step will make taking NEET-UG more accessible for our students abroad and encourage more students to participate in such exams and come back to India for higher studies.
Mr. Keshav expressed his gratitude towards the Ministry of Education and National Testing Agency (NTA) for facilitating the Indian student community within the Middle East with a new Exam centre in Dubai and also thanked Honorable Lok Sabha Speaker, Education Ministry, and other Officials for considering ALLEN Career Institute’s constant efforts to urge the new centre for Gulf countries (like UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, and Kuwait).
