Is it true that admission to AIIMS MBBS and JIPMER MBBS courses will be through NEET-UG from 2020?
There are some media reports in last couple of days that Union Cabinet has approved the National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill where they are proposing a common final year MBBS exam, to be known as NEXT (National Exit Test) in place of NEET-PG for admission to post-graduate medical courses.
They are also reporting that the National Eligibility Entrance Test i.e. NEET will also be applicable to institutes of national importance like AIIMS in order to achieve a common standard in medical education sector in the country.
But I am not sure they are specifically talking about NEET-UG. There is NO OFFICIAL NEWS that AIIMS and JIPMER will be scrapped and their MBBS admissions will be on the basis of NEET-UG from next year.
So don’t panic and continue with your NEET/AIIMS preparation as per your schedule. Any new changes about NEET will be updated here : NEET-UG 2020 Exam Details
