First of Three NEET Medical Entrance Exam Centres for Indian Students in UAE Announced


The Indian High School (IHS) in Oud Metha, Dubai, on Tuesday became the first to be named as a NEET medical entrance exam centre for Indian students in the UAE this year.

This comes a week after India’s National Testing Agency (NTA) announced three exam centers—one each in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah—among the 14 foreign centres allotted for the NEET 2024 exam.

There is no official statement regarding the NEET centres allocated in Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.

NEET (National Eligibility and Entrance Test) is the sole entrance exam for undergraduate medical courses in India, conducted by NTA under India’s Ministry of Education.

Candidates can register on the NEET registration 2024 official website until March 9. NEET was first held in Dubai, at The Indian High School, during the COVID period.

Last week, NTA also announced how overseas students can choose centres in foreign cities.

“Candidates who have already selected centres in India and paid the fee without the option for foreign centres will now have the opportunity to correct their centre and country choice during the correction window. This window will open after the registration window closes. Candidates in foreign countries wishing to change their centres to foreign cities can make corrections during this period,” a circular stated.

However, changes in centre preferences may incur additional fees, as the agency said the candidates “will be required to pay the differential amount.”

For candidates making fresh registrations from foreign countries, the agency said: “Candidates registering afresh from foreign countries can select their preferred country and city directly from the drop-down menu during the application process. They should pay the requisite fee and submit their application.”
