Earlier Punjab PMET 2016 was scheduled to be conducted on May 17, 2016 but it had been postponed following the Supreme Court’s order making the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) mandatory for admission to MBBS and BDS programmes in all government and private medical colleges in India. However, with the NEET 2016 Ordinance-passed by the central government on May 24-allowing states to conduct their own medical entrance exams for this academic year, BFUHS had announced the new exam date for the exam. While the states have been given the option of opting for either NEET or their own entrance test this year, private and deemed medical colleges have to mandatorily accept NEET 2016 scores for their management quota seats starting this academic session itself.
