The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test or NEET-UG is a entrance examination in India, for students who wish to study any graduate medical course (MBBS), dental course (BDS) or postgraduate course (MD / MS) in government or private medical colleges in India for each an every years.

The AIPMT is now considered as NEET Phase I or simply NEET I and NEET Phase II or simply NEET II to make sure that no confusion for students who plan to appear the medical entrance exam.
NEET Phase I or simply NEET I for students who appeared in it, while the one to be held on 24th of July will be known as NEET II.
To clear the chaos, the pre-medical test will be omitted from 2017. As per eligibility is concerned, the court had initially said that NEET II would only be for students who had not appeared for the exam’s first phase. It subsequently revised its stand, and said that any of the approximately 6.25 lakh students who had taken phase I of the exam could, if they wished, sit for phase 2 as well however, their score for NEET I would not, then, be valid.
