The Lok Sabha, on Tuesday, cleared major amendments in the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956 and the Dentists Act, 1948 paving the way for national level single entrance test - National Eligibility cum Entrance Test, for admission to different medical UG and PG programmes from the next academic year. The two new Acts -The Indian Medical Council (Amendment) Bill, 2016 and the Dentists (Amendment) Bill, 2016 - allow for the conduct of a single medical entrance test, NEET, for admission to all central, state government, private and deemed medical as well as dental colleges across the country. Replacing this year’s NEET ordinance, the amendments further validated entrance exams conducted by different states, as per the announced NEET ordinance, for the academic year 2016-17.

For the current academic session, 16 states have opted for State Board Examination and 15 states have opted for NEET. However, central, private and deemed universities will have to mandatorily accept NEET scores only for admitting candidates in their respective medical and dental colleges.

The two Bills, which saw broad support across the lower house, were introduced by Health Minister JP Nadda. As an ordinance has a life of three months, the NEET Ordinance had to be passed as a bill within 42 days (6 weeks) from the day a Parliament session commences to prevent it from lapsing.

 “The bill will give statutory status to NEET. This will make the examination system transparent and students will not face multiplicity of medical examinations. It will also stop exploitation of students in the name of capitation fees,” the health minister said during the debate in Lok Sabha on July 19.

 

The new law will be relevant for all undergraduate and post graduate medical exams. While the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will conduct the undergraduate examination or NEET UG, the post graduate examination will be held by National Board of Examinations (NBE) and will be called NEET PG.

 

Under mounting pressure from several states, government had in May, 2016 promulgated two ordinances to keep state boards out of the ambit of uniform medical and dental entrance examination, National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET), for this year. Read the full story here.

 

The ordinances had sought to "partially" overturn a Supreme Court verdict which ruled that all government colleges, deemed universities and private medical colleges would be covered under NEET. Read the full story here.

 

On July 14, responding to a petition seeking to overturn the NEET ordinance, the Supreme Court had said the validity of the Centre's ordinance allowing states to conduct separate entrance tests for admission to MBBS and BDS courses for the 2016-17 academic year was "in doubt", but had rejected a plea seeking a stay on it saying half the states have already conducted their tests.

Physics needs utmost focus and time because it involves with theoretical concepts and numbers. There should be a systematic approach in preparing for NEET. The important topics are Mechanics, ElectroDynamics, Modern Physics, Heat and Thermodynamics, Optics, Simple Harmonic Motion, Waves. Formulae form an integral part of your preparation. Memorise as many formulae as you can and write them down and stick them as post its so that you can always see them. Practise regularly and try various kinds of questions. Solving previous papers and mock tests to test your improvement. Keep a clock and check the time its taking you to solve these questions. And improve the time as you practise more. One day of the week should be set aside for revision so as to keep the mind fresh.

Cutoffs of neet 2019 of delhi aiims?

Ashish pal Student Expert 21st Oct, 2019

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.

Good luck

Is neet 2020 becomes difficult..?? As aiims and jipmer colleges given on the basis of neet scores.. Plz reply me

Aditya kumar Student Expert 21st Oct, 2019
Hello there!
Greetings!
No , Neet has not become difficult as its pattern is still the same , it will still wave 180 mcqs , 90 from biology, 45 from Physics and 45 from Chemistry . Also , if its  pattern is changed, NTA will notify about this in advance but chances for change in pattern is very low. And , yes now admission in all the medical colleges of India including all the aiims and Jipmer will be based on the marks scored in neet , so , you need to prepare well for it.

Thankyou

You don't need to panic if you are 16 years now i.e. in October 2019, as to be eligible for Neet 2020 on needs to be at least 17 years by 31st December 2020, so now if in October 2019 you are 16 year old then in October 2020 , you will be 17 years old and thus you are eligible for neet 2020. But in case if you don't turn 17 years old by 31st December 2020 then you are not eligible for neet 2020.
Thankyou
