MCI to conduct first Neet for MBBS admissions in May 2014

Clearing the confusion over the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test for admissions to MBBS courses across the country, the Medical Council of India (MCI) has decided to implement the new test from 2013-14 academic year. The final syllabus for the new combined test has been uploaded on its website: While Neet was supposed to be rolled out from this year, the decision to implement it has been deferred in line with the demand by several states, including Andhra Pradesh. The CBSE is expected to conduct the first Neet in May 2014.
Accordingly, students taking admission in 10+2 this year (2012-13) have to qualify in Neet for admissions to MBBS courses from 2014-15 session. With this, students from the state who took admissions in 10+2 courses during the previous academic year (2011-12) will have to appear for Eamcet medical stream exam as usual in May 2013. Neet will be held for MBBS courses offered by all 271 medical colleges across the country: 138 public institutions and 133 private colleges. These colleges offer over 31,000 MBBS seats.
The MCI’s decision to conduct Neet from 2014 has met the demand raised by students and college managements.
