The Supreme Court of India has cleared the Medical Council of India (MCI) proposal for a common entrance examination for medical colleges across the country setting aside its previous order under which common entrance examination for MBBS, BDS and PG courses were proscribed.The Apex court’s latest judgment has paved way for undergraduate and postgraduate common entrance examination for medical colleges. In 2013, the court had revoked National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET).
The Constitution Bench comprising Justices Anil R. Dave, A.K. Sikri, R.K. Agrawal, Adarsh Kumar Goel and R. Banumathi recalling the July 2013 order directed for fresh hearing of the matter. "Till the matter is decided NEET can be implemented," the court said.
The previous order exempted the private medical college from admitting students in medical courses through NEET.
However, the same year, the MCI had passed a regulation seeking to introduce National Eligibility Entrance Test for medical seats. This move was opposed by several states governments and the matter went to the Supreme Court, which struck down the same. Still, MCI and the Centre had sought a revision of the order.
Earlier this year, the Union Ministry for Health and Family Welfare approved the MCI recommendation to amend the Indian Medical Council (IMC) Act, 1956 to allow a single common medical entrance test for both undergraduate and postgraduate medical courses in all colleges across the country, including private colleges and deemed universities.
Benefit for students:
As per MCI, more than 90 entrance examinations are conducted annually for admission to MBBS courses for nearly 300 medical colleges in the country for close to 50,000 seats.
Following the SC order for conducting common exam is likely to save students from the hassle of taking several tests conducted across the country. It is also likely to save students to a larger extent from allegedly paying huge capitation fees.
Prof. Dr. C.V. Bhirmanandham, Vice-President MCI commenting on the SC judgment said, “The SC verdict is a very positive move and we have been fighting for it. Merit will get priority now and the reservation policy of the central government would be followed. This would remove undeserving candidates from getting admitted to medical colleges.”
Currently, AIPMT is conducted on all India basis for admission to 15 per cent seats in all government medical and dental colleges across India. Rest of the 85 per cent seats is filled through state level exam in government colleges. Also, private medical institutes conduct their own entrance tests for admission to their MBBS and dental programmes.

We do not have 2019 data yet. But in 2018, under State quota, 508 marks secured a seat in Balangir Medical College under General Category. That was the cut off. Now cut offs change every year and are dependant on various factors like no.of Candidates appearing for the exam, no.of Candidates qualified, top NEET score and difficulty of the exam. Considering all these facts, you should atleast aim for 550 and above.

Hello dear student,
I know it's very important to get marks (really good) to get a seat in government medical college. But there is no criteria as such about how much marks are needed for you to obtain to get a seat . But yes overall marks should be maintained in order to get a seat . As you haven't mentioned your category. So dear student if you are a general category student try to keep your marks above 580 while if you are a student with reserved category then keep your marks above 530 or more because this time competition will be tough.
And try to keep your marks above 130 in physics and chemistry if getting 320 and above in biology. I hope this was helpful to you
Thank you and best wishes
