NEW DELHI: In a relief to engineering and medical applicants, the Ministry of Human Resources Development said Sunday that new dates for the competitive exams, JEE and NEET, will be announced on May 5.

While the Joint-Main Entrance Exam (JEE-MAINS) is held for admission to engineering colleges across the country, the National Cum Entry Eligibility Test (NEET) is conducted for medical universities.
