NEET over the past

NEET was conducted for the first time on 5th May, 2013. There were over 100 petitions filed against NEET in the same year & supreme court ruled in favour of these petitions. These petitions were filed owing to a huge difference in the syllabus proposed by Medical Council of India for the unified exam. As a result, NEET was completely banned by the Apex court. Although the honourable SC banned NEET, it was revived in 2016 after the SC pulled back its earlier verdict. NEET 2016 was conducted in two phases vis-a-vis NEET phase 1 & phase 2. NEET phase 1 was nothing but AIPMT scheduled for 2016. Students were offered a choice to register for NEET 2 if they give up their NEET phase 1 scores. Over 4.5 lakh candidates took NEET phase 2 thereby proving its wide acceptance.

In 2017, NEET completely replaced medical entrance exams except AIIMS, JIPMER and other few. NEET 2017 was conducted ideally in stead of AIPMT in 2017. Although the exam was successfully conducted in 2017, there were petitions filed against the varying difference in difficulty level with varying languages of the exam. Madras HC had stayed NEET 2017 results’ declaration, but CBSE moved to the Supreme Court and the stay was lifted. NEET 2017 results were declared on 23rd june, 2017. This can be considered as an evidence of a complete acceptance of NEET. NEET 2018 is believed to be held during the 1st or 2nd week of May, 2018.
