The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test was held by the NTA on 5 May. But in Odisha, the medical entrance exam was postponed to 20 May in view of the disruption caused by Cyclone Fani.
The exam was also held on 20 May in Karnataka for hundreds of candidates who missed NEET 2019 on 5 May after the Hampi Express took a 120-kilometre longer route from North Karnataka to Bengaluru. Students had to reach their exam centres by 1.30 pm, but the train reached the station at 2.30 pm. The Indian Railways had written to the Ministry of Human Resource Development to have NTA conduct NEET 2019 for these candidates again.
