NEET will be a single entrance examination for the 12th class students to get admission to almost all medical colleges in India for MBBS, BDS and other medical courses. Even Private colleges have to entertain candidates for admission based on their NEET UG Results. NEET was conducted in 2013 for the first and last time.
