Doctors in India are looked upon as a benchmark in knowledge and social status since they spare many lives in their whole vocation, and NEET is the stepping ladder for every student who aspires to be a doctor. Millions of parents in our country wish for their children to be doctors. While the goal may be common, the reasons to be a doctor are different for each.
As per the official notification released by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in 2019, AIIMS, JIPMER, PGI & INIs (Institutes of National Importance) were directed to not conduct any undergraduate entrance exams from 2020 onwards. All such admissions in medical courses must be fulfilled via NEET only.
NEET vs AIIMS MBBS
ach year the NEET exam is conducted by the National Testing Agency whereas, AIIMS MBBS was being conducted by the All India Institutes of Medical Sciences, an independent body with its base in New Delhi. But just like all the other state medical entrance examinations, AIIMS MBBS was also quashed among other eligibility tests for admission into medical colleges across the country
Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan’s verdict on October 4, 2019 clearly stated that admission to all the MBBS courses including JIPMER and AIIMS must be done through a common entrance test known as NEET. AIIMS exam tests a candidate’s knowledge qualitatively but on the other hand, NEET tests quantitative knowledge of a candidate. Major differences in the exam such as number of questions, mode of exam, etc. are mentioned below in a tabulated format –
