NEET UG 2020 - National
Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test for Under Graduates acronym as NEET-UG will be
taken by CBSE (National Testing Agency i.e. NTA from 2019) on behalf of
the Ministry of Health and Medical Science from 2017 again (replacing State Level
Medical Entrance Tests as well as CBSE's AIPMT) to
admit aspiring candidates to the undergraduate medical course (MBBS and BDS) throughout
India. From 2019 the test will be taken online and twice a year in the
months of Feb and May every year.
A merit list will be prepared on the basis of
NEET UG scores which will be applicable for admission to nearly 355 recognized
MBBS colleges and 300 BDS colleges.

Category, SC, ST and OBC and PD candidates. Besides, NEET-UG will not interfere

Although NEET will be applicable to mostly all
the Medical Colleges in India there were some exclusions. These are AIIMS - All
