NEET UG 2022- National Eligibility cum Entrance Test - for under graduate courses

In 2013, with the approval of the Central Government of India, the Medical Council of India (MCI) had made provision for a single eligibility cum entrance examination, namely, "National Eligibility cum Entrance Test" (NEET) for admission to MBBS course in each academic year. Similarly, the Dental Council of India (DCI) had also notified that admission to BDS courses in each academic year shall be through National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET).
Both the MCI & the DCI had notified that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) shall conduct NEET -UG for admission to the under-graduate medical courses i.e. MBBS and BDS programmes.
Thus, NEET-UG 2022 (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for Under Graduate courses) will be conducted at an all India level aims to relieve the need of students to appear in multiple tests and promote merit in admission process. NEET UG will allow class XII students to sit in a single entrance examination to get admission to almost all medical colleges in India, including private medical colleges.

A single merit list will be created for the MBBS and BDS seats across the country, which will show state, minorities and SC/ST quotas.

According to the latest news from the education ministry, NEET 2022 will be conducted twice- once in the month of February and once in the month of May. Students can appear for any one or both the exams and the best score among the two will be considered as the final score.

The exam dates will be announced shortly. The exams will be conducted in sessions, which means the students can pick a date and and time of their choice to appear for the examination. The exam will be computer based and the centers will be available for practice session at district as well as sub-district level. 

In 2013 NEET UG had replaced the AIPMT as the national level single entrance tests for all medical aspirants in India. NEET 2022 had also replaced a lot of state level and institute level medical entrance exams like GGSIPU CET, DUMET, AFMC, KEAM (Medical).  
The responsibility of the CBSE is limited to the conduct of NEET-UG, declaration of NEET-UG result and providing merit list to the Counselling Authorities.

But after the first edition of NEET, it was cancelled and again replaced by AIPMT and other state level exams.
