‘NEET alone can enable students to get admission to MBBS or BDS courses’

New Delhi: Dismissing pleas filed by various state governments and private medical colleges against the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), the Supreme Court on Monday said that only NEET would enable students to get admission to MBBS or BDS courses in private or government medical colleges.

However, the entrance examination conducted by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) for its MBBS seats would go on as they were being regulated by central legislation, said the apex court.

A bench of Justices A R Dave, Shiva Kirti Singh and A K Goel also clarified that those students who had appeared for the NEET-I held on May 1 would be allowed to take second phase of NEET scheduled for July 24 but their marks in the previous test would stand scrapped, reports ToI.
