Some states & private medical colleges move Supreme Court seeking permission to continue with their separate test for admissions in MBBS & BDS courses.

Over six lakh students appeared for the first phase of National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET), a common medical entrance test for admissions to MBBS and BDS courses across the country on Monday.

The Supreme court had cleared the decks for holding the exam in two phases by approving the schedule put before it by the Centre, CBSE and the Medical Council of India (MCI) for treating All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) fixed for May 1 as NEET-1.
