NEET Entrance Examination: Lok Sabha has recently passed a significant Medical Bill to conduct a single entrance examination for all government, deemed and private Medical and Dental institutions across the country. In the Bill, it is mentioned that there will be a single common entrance test i.e. NEET to enter into different Medical and the Dental courses. This new change in the Medical entrance examination will be promulgated from the new academic session.
NEET : Single Common Admission Entrance Examination
It’s been a very tough competition seen among students who want to excel in the Medical and Dental field. Many entrance examinations were conducted like, NEET, which has two papers and AIMPT. It is very difficult to crack. So, the Government has decided to set this new law of conducting a single common admission test and every government, private and deemed colleges have to follow the score of NEET for the admission. A complete merit based selection.

After the rejection from the Supreme Court, Lok Sabha has passed the Bill after many controversies. This is indeed a very good intervention taken by the government to conduct a single entrance examination across the country. Earlier the private institutions were not the part of the NEET examination. They use to conduct their own internal entrance examinations. But after the new law, all the private institutions have to follow the NEET examination and its score for admission into different Medical and Dental courses. The main reason behind the change forwarded by the governing body is that this will make the admission procedure more transparent. This was rather a much needed change in the Medical and Dental field. And this will be a complete merit-based selection process.
Every year a large number of students apply for the Medical entrance examination hoping to get into different government institutions. But very few were selected in the test for the unavailability of seats, which leads them to take admission in different private institutions. This cost much more than the government colleges. So, keeping all the problems in mind, this new law has been passed. This will help the candidate to get admission in any colleges across the country.
If we talk about the fee structure of the private Medical and Dental colleges, it is quite high and very expensive. The health Minister in Lok Sabha said that “a special committee will analyse and decide the fee structure of the private colleges.”
Health Minister also said during the debate in Lok Sabha that, “The main reason to pass this bill is that it will help the students to get hassle-free admission to the colleges without any exploitation. He also added that it will bring a transparency in the examination system”.
Further, he said that the examination will be conducted not only in English and Hindi language, but also will be in other regional languages of the country.
This New bill is applicable for all the undergraduate and post graduate Medical courses. The NEET-UG, i.e. the Undergraduate examination will be organised by the CBSE board. On the other hand, the NEET-PG entrance examination will be conducted by the National Board of Examinations (NBE). The bill also includes the syllabus for the entrance examination. The examination will be purely from the NCERT syllabus.
