Full Form of NEET


NEET stands for National Eligibility cum Entrance Test. The Government, in the spirit of one-country one-exam, introduced NEET in order to replace several different medical examinations across the country (including AIPMT- All India Pre-Medical Test).

NEET was first held on May 05, 2013, but it was canceled later as per the order of Supreme Court. This year, on May 6, 2018, more than 13 lakh students had appeared for NEET competing for 50,000 plus seats. This is the only examination in the country that fills All India Quota Seats as well as State Level Quota Seats. Various private colleges across the country also accept admission through NEET scores.
