From 2020-2021 session onwards, there shall be only one entrance exam for admission to MBBS course and that is NEET

Earlier, AIIMS and JIPMER used to conduct their own entrance test which no longer will take place now.

i have done my 10th from delhi but doing 11 th and 12th from up ...i wanted to know that as i m eligible for participating in neet from up if want admission in college of delhi ..how much will i have to score in neet?

Hello Rishu

Yes, you are eligible to write NEET from UP, even though you want to take admission in a college of Delhi. The admission is taken on the basis of your marks and rank, so it does not matter from which state you have given the exam. But you won't get the benefit of state quota.

Hope it helps you.
