By Debasmita Mohapatra

After reviewing and analyzing many experimental and significant proposals in the field of education, the Government took a major move to set up National Testing Agency (NTA) in a hope of increasing efficiency and transparency in the country’s educational system. NTA is a statutory body, which was approved by the Union Cabinet for conducting entrance examinations of JEE, NEET, CTET, UGC NET, etc. from the end of 2018 onwards. To date, these exams were conducted by The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). 

NEET is the only national-level medical entrance exam. It is organized for providing admission in all Indian Medical colleges offering courses in MBBS, BDS & Ayush.

So, the government rolled back the decision. The exam will now be held once a year and in pen-and-paper mode and not online. 

 It has been confirmed that NEET 2021 will be a single entrance exam for UG medical admission 2021. Hence AIIMS and JIPMER will be canceled and done via NEET.
