The Supreme Court said on Monday that the candidates seeking admission to MBBS and BDS courses will have to go through the National Eligibility Entrance Test. The Court rejected the appeal of states to allow them to conduct their separate entrance tests for admission to MBBS and BDS.
Supreme Court also said in its order that the students who did not appear in the NEET-1 would be allowed to appear in the NEET-2. The court further said that the NEET for MBBS Admissions does not affect rights of the minority nor does it impact provisions for reservation.
The AIPMT held on May 1, has been considered as NEET-1. The students who have not applied for the AIPMT will be given a chance to appear in the NEET-2 to be held on July 24. Candidates who appeared in the NEET-1 will be allowed to reappear in the NEET-2.
The results for both the tests will be declared on August 17 and admission process has to be completed by all colleges by September 30.

The Supreme Court clarified in its order that the students who appeared in National Eligibility Entrance Test-I (NEET) on May 1 can appear in the NEET-II as well scheduled for July 24. The combined result of both the phases of NEET will be declared on August 17.
The second phase of NEET would be conducted in regional languages across the country. However, the Supreme Court has asked for the observation in this regard from Medical Council of India. The Supreme Court may also allow states to conduct entrance exams in regional languages.
Earlier the Apex Court was hearing the pleas of states opposing the NEET to be considered as a uniform entrance exam for medical and dental admissions across the country. The court had sought MCI’s response on various states whether to allow them to conduct separate entrance exams for medical and dental admissions instead of NEET.
