Medical Admissions 2020-21

NEET mandatory only for candidates applying for medical colleges from May 2018.

PUBLISH DATE 23rd February 2018

New Delhi: After the NEET 2018 notification was released, many students were in for a shocker as the scope of the examination was extended to students planning to study MBBS/BDS from colleges abroad. The confusion regarding the implementation of the rule and the extent of the same was a question that was raised, by prospective students as well as students already pursuing medicine from foreign countries. Putting the concerns to rest, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare yesterday issued a clarification that NEET or National Eligibility cum Entrance Test, NEET is mandatory for Indian students who are planning to obtain medical degrees (MBBS/ BDS) from abroad on or after May 2018.

The Health Ministry had earlier this month made NEET, which was introduced in 2016 for admission to government and private medical colleges in India, mandatory for even those who wished to pursue medical courses in foreign universities. It also said students who have already taken admission under present regulations to pursue primary medical courses by taking eligibility certificate from Medical Council of India (MCI) were "exempted" from qualifying NEET.

"It is informed that the regulations prescribe that the Indian citizens or Overseas Citizen of India intending to obtain a primary medical qualification from any medical institution outside India, on or after May 2018, shall have to mandatorily qualify the NEET for admission to MBBS course abroad. Related News | NEET 2018 now mandatory to pursue medicine abroad, quick look at all the changes implemented this year in NEET 

"The decision will be implemented prospectively i.e. from May-2018. Thus, students who have already taken admission under current regulations to pursue a primary medical course by taking Eligibility Certificate from MCI are exempted from qualifying NEET," an official statement said. The clarification came after the ministry received grievances urging it to exempt students who have already gone abroad from the requirement of qualifying the NEET.
