The students of state government boards will not have to sit for NEET on July 24, 2016.

But, from next academic session, they will have to be part of NEET, which is a uniform entrance test for students who wish to study any graduate medical course (MBBS), dental course (BDS) or postgraduate course (MD/MS) in government or private medical colleges in India.

The ordinance partially overturns SC verdict which said that all government colleges, deemed universities and private medical colleges would be covered under NEET.



 

However, more than 15 states were opposed to NEET and had raised issues like different syllabus and languages.
