The CBSE will start the process of online application for the National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test-II (UG) from Thursday for admission to medical and dental courses. The exam will be held on July 24.
“The test will be applicable for admissions to the All India quota seats, State Government Quota seats where the state government concerned so opts and Private/Management/NRI Quota seats in all Private Medical/Dental Colleges or any Private/Deemed University,” CBSE said in an official statement.
It added that as per the directions of the Supreme Court, left out candidates who could not register or appear in NEET-I (AIPMT-2016) or those having the apprehension that they had not prepared well, subject to submission of an undertaking to give up their candidature for NEET-I, can apply in NEET-II.
“The detailed information regarding test, syllabus and eligibility criteria will be available on the website www.aipmt.nic.in,” the statement said.
President Pranab Mukherjee gave his assent to the NEET Ordinance on Tuesday exempting state government medical colleges from the Supreme Court-mandated single All India entrance exam for a year.
The states now have the option of either conducting their own exam or be a part of the NEET to fill 85 per cent of the Under Graduate (UG) medical and dental seats. 15 per cent of the remaining seats will be filled through NEET route by all India counselling.
