To avoid any kind of illegal conduct at the examination centre of NEET, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has come out with the dress code for students. The guideline is issued that candidates willing to pursue MBBS and BDS at medical colleges should come in “light-coloured halfsleeves dress” and “not to wear shoes”. Last year, CBSE was criticized as the students were forced to remove their head scarves to gain entry into the exam halls.

According to the statement by CBSE, the candidates will have to wear “light clothes with half sleeves, not having big buttons, brooch/badge, flower etc. with salwar/ trouser,” and “slippers, sandals with low heels and not the shoes,” to the exam centre.
