On the basis of NEET 2016 result, CBSE has also prepared a merit list of the eligible candidates to appear in 15% All India Counselling scheduled to be conducted from August 22, 2016.

As per the Supreme Court’s ruling of May 9, 2016, private, deemed and central government universities mandatorily need to accept NEET 2016 scores for providing admissions to its MBBS and BDS programmes. However, as per the implementation of 24th May NEET ordinance for the academic session 2016-17, states can provide admissions to 85% state quota seats through their own entrance test.


The Lok Sabha, however, on July 20, 2016 cleared major amendments in the Medical Council of India 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.
