Hello aspirant

This is a big mistake , how can you select a wrong board.  Anyways as correction window is closed , nothing  can be done now .

First thing don't be panic , think calmly , send a mail to official website of cuet .

If they are responding it is well and good . You won't face difficulty at the time of entrance exam but at the time of counseling this issue can create a great problem.

If you are not getting response to your mail , you woll have to go to venue of cuet . Any how you will have to solve this issue otherwise your one year time will get wasted.

Hello,

Submitting your NEET form with your surname, even if it is not on your Aadhar card, should generally not cause significant trouble.

If the correction is not processed before the NEET correction window ends, inform NEET authorities and follow their guidance.

Hope this helps you,

Thank you
