New Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE) has extended the deadline for candidates to revise their centres for national entrance exam for admission to medical colleges till March 31.

The board has also added another centre in Nanded (Maharashtra), taking the number of centres for National Entrance-cum-Eligibility Test (NEET) to 104.

The candidates who wish to revise their examination centres were granted a window from March 24-27.

"Date of revising the options for centre cities has been extended till March 31, 2017. Nanded (Maharashtra) has also been added in the existing list of the examination cities," CBSE said in a statement.

According to the CBSE, a record 11,35,104 candidates have registered for the exam, which is 41.42 per cent more than the previous year's number.

In 2016, 8,02,594 aspirants had registered for the NEET. With the increase, the NEET and the JEE (Main) exams now have an equivalent number of cities as centres with the HRD Ministry earlier this week directing CBSE to have 23 more centres.

The single common entrance exam for admission to MBBS/BDS courses in Medical Council of India-/Dental Council of India- approved medical/dental colleges, will be held on May 7.

It will be held in 10 languages Hindi, English, Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Odia and Kannada.
