The minister said NEET, which is now the only entrance test for medical admission in the country, was a historic reform which is providing students opportunity to get admission to the best medical institutions.

“It has resulted in curbing malpractices in medical admission, greater transparency and reducing the burden on prospective students of appearing in multiple entrance exams,” she said.

“NEET (UG) is conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA) & the syllabus is based on the syllabi of all the State Boards and National Boards,” Pawar added.
