The proposal for common entrance exam was sent to Health Ministry by MCI on October 6, 2015.

The single common medical entrance test for both undergraduate and postgraduate medical courses in various colleges across the country, according to MCI, will not only save candidates from appearing in several exams but also ensure transparent admission process with admissions through All India merit list.
The demand for a common medical entrance test for students across the country was first initiated in 2009, when MCI was headed by Dr Ketan Desai. National Eligibility Test (NEET) a common medical entrance test was conducted in 2013 for admission to MBBS and BDS courses in government, private and deemed universities. However, it was scrapped the next year after the Supreme Court in June 2013 ruled out the MCI's notification for holding common entrance tests for MBBS, BDS and post-graduate medical courses.
In India, about 6 lakh candidates appear annually for different medical entrance exams like AIPMT, AIIMS, JIPMER, COMEDK UGET medical, etc. There are about 75 undergraduate medical entrance examinations for admission to as many as 52, 000 MBBS and BDS seats available in various national, state and public and private university level medical institutions.

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.
