List of things all students must check and correct are listed below.
- Personal Details: All students are advised to kindly check all the details entered in the application form, including their date of birth, spelling of their name, father’s name, mother’s name and so on. The details must tally with the identification card used at the time of examination. Discrepancy in the details may prevent the candidates from appearing for the examination.

- Choice of Examination Centre: Candidates can also check and update the choice of examination city and centre filled in the application form. In case a student wishes, he/she can change the choice of examination city during the correction window. An important thing to remember at this juncture is to ensure that the selection of language is related to the choice of examination city. The regional papers would be available only in the respective states. Candidates opting to appear for NEET 2020 from Chennai, for example, cannot opt for New Delhi as a centre and choose Tamil as the medium of instruction.
- Opting for 15% All India Quota and Submission of Self Declaration: All students except the students of erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir are automatically eligible for 15% All India Quota and are not required to submit any self-declaration form.
