The implementation of NEET, which despite being partially applicable this academic year, relieved students from appearing in multiple exams. NEET is expected to be the only exam for admission to state government and private medical colleges from next year.

Following the centre’s earlier ordinance which partially overturned SC judgement on NEET, many states decided to conduct their own exam this year. Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Goa, Gujarat, Jammu and Kashmir, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra, Punjab, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Tripura and West Bengal conducted their own tests this year.

The fallout

The Apex court’s judgment on NEET had replaced almost 90 state and private medical entrance exams with one common exam for admission to approximately 52,000 MBBS and BDS seats in around 500 government as well as private medical and dental colleges across India. But under mounting pressure from several states, political parties and law makers, the central government promulgated NEET Ordinances to overrule the SC order and keep state boards out of the ambit this year. While SC had passed its judgement on May 9, NEET 2016 Ordinance which partially overturned the SC order came into effect on May 24.

  1. All India Quota Seats

  2. State Government Quota Seats where the State Government concerned so opts

  3. Private/Management/NRI Quota Seats in all Private Medical/Dental Colleges or any Private/Deemed University

Admission based on NEET 2016

The centralized counselling will be conducted for admission to 15% All India Quota seats in government medical and dental colleges of India except institutions in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Jammu & Kashmir.

  2. State Government Quota Seats:  The states accepting NEET will conduct counselling for allotment of MBBS and BDS seats based on NEET score. The NEET participating states will prepare merit list based on the NEET score for candidates belonging from respective states.

  3. Private/Deemed University: Private medical institutions will accept NEET score for UG medical and dental seats under their control. Private/Deemed medical University will announce their admission procedure/criteria after NEET result.
