What type of photographs must the candidates upload in the application form?

It is normal to make mistakes when selecting the image during registration. Candidates frequently attach images that do not correspond to the instructions provided and thus image approval may be denied. The following are the most common mistakes made by candidates:

  • Avoid using cell phones to click a photo as the image may be unclear. Pictures with the original color (light or dark) are not accepted.
  • Look directly at the camera to make an eye-catching appearance. The face should cover more than 75% of the overall picture frame. An image that is pressed on light bulbs or wires should not be put on the NEET application form.
  • Remember not to wear glasses. Also, an image with a lot of background light will not be accepted.

Note: The image can be declined by the authority. In that case, candidates have the opportunity to make changes during the NEET Application Form Correction. Candidates may superimpose a proper picture on the form and submit it again. The correct image will automatically be updated on the form.
