National Eligibility Entrance Examination (NEET)

Need for National Eligibility Entrance
Examination (NEET)

It was felt that common entrance examination is essential as it:
● Ensures uniformity across the country,
● Sets a minimum standard and
● Is convenient for the candidates
● Saves resources.
● Takes care of malpractices.

i. To counter act disparities in existing syllabus in inter
& intra states and to ensure level playing field a
common syllabus is proposed for all the examinations
including MBBS entrance, MBBS exit examination &
PG entrance examinations and Superspecialties
entrance examinations.
ii. Reservation of seats as applicable to the states would
be taken care of in all common entrance

Based on the recommendations of undergraduate (UG)
curriculum committee and post-graduate (PG) curriculum
committee, MCI also intends to conduct licentiate examination
after internship completion to qualify for Indian Medical Graduate
(IMG) status. The UG and PG curriculum committees after various
discussions opined that IMG licentiate examination and common
entrance examination for PG i.e. National Eligibility-cum-Entrance
Test (NEET-PG) would be separate. The essential reason is that
IMG examination shall assess the minimum defined standards
for a competent doctor relevant to Indian needs whereas the NEETPG
examination is intended for ranking with explicit need to
differentiate students for merit. The UG/PG committees suggested
to hold the NEET-PG prior to internship so that a candidate spend
time for preparing during internship.

Framework of Examinations
All the examination would be structured in framework. These would
i. Common syllabus throughout the country

paraclinical subjects. For DM/ Mch entrance, there
would be three kinds of papers, M.S. surgery level
