At present, 15% of the total seats in all medical and dental colleges run by the Union of India, state governments, municipal or other local authorities in India.
The primary aim of this test, which is standardized all over India, is to make medical education available on an equitable basis to all regions of the nation and to foster inter-regional exchange.
Every Year NEET is conducted on first Sunday in the month of May.
In 2018, NEET will be conducted on 1 May 2018.
In 2010, the pattern of NEET was changed. The examination was replaced by a Two tier or Two stage test – The AIPMT Prelims and the AIPMT Mains. The candidates who could qualify the AIPMT Prelims were eligible to give the AIPMT Mains test. Finally, those who scored well in the AIPMT Mains were selected for admission based purely on the merit of the candidate in the AIPMT Mains. Admission was done rank-wise
In 2013, the pattern changed again - The Two tier examination was replaced by the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET-UG).It was a nationwide test through which admissions were to be done for all seats of MBBS and BDS in all the colleges which were covered by previous exam.
Current exam pattern
The exam is conducted in a single stage that usually occurs on the first Sunday of May. The examination consists of one paper containing 180 objective type questions from Physics, Chemistry and Biology (Botany & Zoology), having 45 questions from each subject. The exam duration is 3 hours. Each question carries 4 marks. For each incorrect response, one mark is deducted from the total score. However, no deduction from the total score is made if no response is indicated for an item. Indication of more than one answer for a question is deemed an incorrect response and negatively marked.
