President Pranab Mukherjee has signed the NEET ordinance on May 24, 2016, paving the way for state-level medical entrance tests for admissions in MBBS and BDS programmes in government colleges. The ordinance which puts state-level medical entrance tests out of NEET ambit for current academic year was sent to the President after Union cabinet had cleared it on May 20.
The ordinance overrules the May 9 Supreme Court judgement which replaced all state-level and private medical entrance tests with NEET. With the ordinance coming into effect now, the states are allowed to conduct their own entrance tests for the current academic year. But, the private medical colleges and deemed institutions will still have to admit students through NEET only.
Now, candidates seeking admission in the state government colleges need not necessarily appear for NEET.

As per the Supreme Court guidelines, NEET Phase 1 has already been conducted on May 1. NEET phase 2 is scheduled to be conducted on July 24, 2016.
The NEET 2016 exam now will be applicable for admissions to all India 15 per cent quota seats in government colleges; and private and deemed institutions.
The ordinance on deferring NEET 2016 for admissions to state government colleges was submitted to the President on May 22. Before giving his nod on NEET 2016 ordinance, the President had sought clarity and legal advice on the matter. Read the full story here.
After the final NEET 2016 judgement on May 9 where the SC bench refused to allow any state-level or private medical test except NEET, many opposition parties had raised concerns over its feasibility for students who were preparing for their respective state-level exam based on their state syllabus. Many Parliament members had also said that language barrier in many states may put students from these states at disadvantage in a common test which is only in two languages – Hindi and English.
Nearly 6.5 lakh students had registered for NEET 2016 Phase 1 held on May 1, 2016.

Hello dear aspirant.
To be honest I think you will be very much aware of the fact that from this year onwards Neet JIPMER and AIIMS will be conducted in one exam. So predicting it will be a little tricky but yes anything above 650 will provide you a good chance for sure.
Hope you get it.
