Pursuant to the Notification published in the Gazette of India Extraordinary dated 21st December, 2010, the Medical Council of India (MCI) with the approval of the Central Government amended the regulations on Graduate Medical Education 1997 and made provision for a Single Eligibility cum Entrance Examination, namely, National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to MBBS Course. The Dental Council of India (DCI) also amended the BDS Course Regulations 2007 and notified in the Gazette of India Extraordinary dated 31st May, 2012 that admission to BDS course in each academic year shall be through National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET).  MCI has decided to conduct the All India Level Common Entrance Examinations for admission to Medical Under Graduate (NEET-UG), Post Graduate (NEET-PG) and Super Specialty (NEET-SP) courses from the academic year 2013.

Admission to MBBS/BDS courses across the country will be carried out through an All India Medical Entrance Examination named National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) which will be organised by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). The National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) will cater to admissions in all the government and private medical and dental colleges in the country on the basis of its merit list. Although private colleges, including some deemed universities, have been trying to avoid NEET, the Medical Council of India (MCI) has made it clear that NEET will replace the multiple tests for admission to medical colleges from the academic year 2013.

Under-graduate courses at the AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Sciences) in New Delhi and Post-graduate Institute for Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) in Chandigarh may be outside the NEET's purview as these institutes were set up by separate laws.

An all India merit list as well as State-wise merit list of the eligible candidates shall be prepared on the basis of the marks obtained in National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test and candidates shall be admitted to MBBS/ BDS courses from the said lists only.
