NEET UG exam is held for admission to MBBS and BDS courses in institutes and colleges recognized by MCI. NEET UG, this year onward, has assumed greater significance since it is now the only medical entrance exam conducted for admission to an undergraduate medical or dental programme.
Earlier, AIIMS and JIPMER conducted a separate entrance examination for MBBS and BDS admission. The entrance exam for these institutes has been scraped under the provisions prescribed in the National Medical Commission Act 2019.
"The common national entrance test -- NEET -- applicable to institutes of national importance like AIIMS and JIPMER and common counselling for MBBS, as per the National Medical Commission Act, will come into force from the next academic year (2020).
"This will help set common standards in medical education sector in the country," Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Union Health Minister, said announcing the decision in October.
