The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) will allow plus two students to sit in a single entrance examination to get admission to almost all medical colleges in the country, including private medical colleges, from 2012 academic year.
- A single merit list will be created for close to 35,000 MBBS seats across the country, which will show state, minorities and SC/ST quotas.
- The entrance examination would cover all medical colleges except the Armed Forces Medical College and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi and the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research in Chandigarh may be outside the NEET’s purview as these institutes were set up by separate laws
- While the MCI will not touch the management quota, it insists that even management quota candidates should come from the national merit list. The objective was to set up a standard for basic medical education. The minority institutions would continue to have a quota and a private college could have a management quota. But the reserved seats would have to be filled on the basis of merit
