The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test or NEET-UG is an entrance examination conducted in India, for students who wish to pursue any graduate medical course viz MBBS/ dental course (BDS) or postgraduate course (MD/MS) in government or private medical colleges in India.
NEET-UG (Undergraduate), for MBBS and BDS courses are conducted by the Central Board Of Secondary Education (CBSE). NEET-UG replaced the All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT) and all individual MBBS exams conducted by states or college managements in 2013.
However, many colleges and institutes had taken a stay order and conducted private examinations for admission to their MBBS and BDS courses.
