National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) from 2013-14.

It’s now official – the common National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to Under Graduate (UG) will be conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education ( CBSE) while it will be the National Board of Examination that will conduct the Post Graduate (PG) exams.

India is all set to roll out NEET from 2013-14.

Putting ghosts to rest, the Union health ministry has informed state governments that their existing reservation policies would not be disturbed under the proposed scheme and state wise eligibility merit lists will be prepared for the respective state authorities to admit students for admission in accordance with their admission criteria in the institutions located in the respective states.

The Medical Council of India has also revised the syllabus for NEET-UG.

The qualifying criterion has been changed from percentage of absolute marks to percentile to ensure that no seat remains unfilled. Ghulam Nabi Azad said on Monday “A few state governments had expressed concerns about the proposed NEET particularly with regard to the syllabus for the NEET for UG, reservation of seats, medium of examination, as well as their own preparedness to introduce the scheme from the academic year 2012-13 and whether once introduced some of their seats would go unfilled because of high merit. The government has addressed all the concerns.”

The ministry has also set up a coordination Committee “with all relevant stakeholders as members, which will address any issue relating to the admission process, including regional language as medium for conduct of NEET.”

NEET would mean a single entrance examination will be held for MBBS and MD courses offered by all 271 medical colleges, 138 run by governments and 133 under private management. These colleges offer over 31,000 seats for MBBS courses and another 11,000 seats for PG degrees.

Experts say NEET would reduce hassles for students appearing for multiple medical exams.

“Once implemented, the NEET would be applicable to all medical colleges which come under the ambit of MCI, including private medical colleges,” Azad said.

Among the states that was against the introduction of NEET in 2012 included West Bengal Maharashtra, Assam, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. Maharashtra, Gujarat and Goa had showed readiness to join NEET from 2013-14 but AP sought exemption for two years, saying it would join from 2014-15.

“At present, about 17 entrance tests are held to fill 32,000 UG seats in medical colleges across the country,” a ministry official said.

    • anshikagupta says:

      No ,Dont Even Think Of Dropping a Year before You’ve Tried. You Get Brownie Points For Having an OBC certificate.Tackling 11th Isnt a Big problem,U still have time.Finish The first Half Before your Boards, And Complete the rest after your Boards.YEAH,U may Join up a One Month Crash-course at a decent institute.
      Check Out Past Papers and Keep the Formulas at Your Fingertips.Study Smart,If You cant give enough time to a chapter Then Just see the portions which have been asked in AIPMT.
      Stop Thinking about Dropping a year NOW,Concentrate on clearing the entrance In your first attempt.

  28. aditya says:

    what is the syllabus for neet ????it just NCERT or more than it???

    • just ncert is sufficient along with mcq books for practise

      • Akanksha says:

        are there any pmt in any state?
        and i’ll be appearing in the NEET by 2014, so is it sufficient if i read only ncert books? i have heard that there is more to NEET syllabus dan jst ncert.

      • krsourabh says:

        PRHAPS no state pmts this year….ya some extra topics r added this year in NEET.
        u must understand one thing that only some topics r out of ncert( say max 5%) ….so u should do is that first cover 95%of syllabus …that is study ncert well …their r some extra topics which can b covered later…

  29. Avi says:

    • anshikagupta says:

      For starters,read up this article On NEET @

      When you revise physics and chemistry of class 11th,dont go in for the derivations.Just cram up the formulas.Just practice past papers after boards,dont waste your time doing supercomplicated problems. Keep your Concepts CLEAR. Read up the Theoretical Topics,Look up the graphs and memorise the formulas.

  54. Mayur Shukla says:

    What will be the state eligibility criteria for Neet-UG-2013? 50% is the minimum requirement. Do we need to consider GUJCET marks as well or only the Board result? Please clarify.

    • anshikagupta says:

      NEET isnt IIT,They’re not considering 12th boards. GUJCET isnt happening,Its just NEET for now.

      And the 50%marks criteria is a thing of the past,the newer version is The 50 percentile concept.
