Supreme Court on NEET 2016:

 

Following the Supreme Court’s order to conduct National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2016 from current academic session, CBSE has replaced AIPMT with NEET 2016. As per the SC order, “AIPMT 2016 which was held on May 1, 2016 shall be phase I of NEET. Phase II of NEET for the left out candidates shall be held on July 24, 2016 by inviting applications with fee. Combined result of both the tests shall be declared on August 17, 2016. CBSE will provide All India Rank. Admitting Authorities will invite applications for Counselling and merit list shall be drawn based on All India Rank. ”Read the full Story.

 

In 2013, NEET was declared illegal and unconstitutional by the Supreme Court as it was in opposition with the right of private, minority and linguistic institutions to admit students. Since then, many state governments are conducting their admission tests separately. Currently, about 80 - 90 entrance medical examinations are conducted by different examination authorities in India for admission to MBBS and BDS programmes in their respective colleges.

 

About 6-7 lakh candidates annually appear for medical entrance tests in India for admissions to over 52,000 MBBS seats in more than 400 medical and dental colleges of India.
