• All individual MBBS entrance exams, which are being organized individually by state or colleges themselves (e.g. AFMC, OJEE, EAMCET, Delhi-PMT, UP-CPMT, UT-PMT, R-PMT, HR-PMT, WB-JEE, JK-CET etc.).
• The government is yet to take a decision on adopting NEET for admission to other allied medical courses viz. veterinary, agriculture, horticulture, nursing courses etc.
Benefits of NEET:
• One common examination for admission into almost all of the MBBS colleges in India.
• No need to apply for several entrance examinations.
• The students will be free and relaxed after appearing in only one exam.
• Stress-level will be considerably reduced which otherwise used to be there due to various entrance examinations spread over a period of three months (April-May-June).
• Substantial financial savings for parents.
Suggestions for NEET Preparation:
• As the exam is being conducted by CBSE therefore thorough reading of NCERT is a must. The content of NCERT books should be read completely and figures given should be understood minutely. Student must solve the exercises given in the NCERT.
• NEET will have 180 questions with 3 hours time, so accordingly time management practice should be done by writing mock tests. A student would be required to solve each question in a minute’s time, so a practice of atleast 15-20 full length tests before taking the actual exam would prove to be most beneficial.
• There are some differences in the CBSE syllabus for class XI and XII compared to NEET. A close comparison of syllabus must be done.
• Going through the previous year AIPMT exam papers will help as it is expected to be of the same level
