Finally the Supreme Court has come to a conclusion about the common entrance exam for MBBS. The Supreme Court has given permission to the Medical Council of India (MCI) to conduct a single Common Entrance Test (CET) both for MBBS and Post graduation.

This entrance exam is for all 271 medical colleges including 138 run by governments and 133 under private with over 31,000 seats in MBBS courses and another 11,000 in PG. This will come in effect from next academic session 2016.

This issue came up earlier this year due to the problems faced by students who want to take up entrance exam for various colleges and there were clash of exam dates and travelling problems. This confusion forced many students to file case in Supreme Court about the entrance exam system.

To the case petitioned by Simran Jain , Senior Advocate Saran and A D N Rao pleaded for single common entrance test.

MCI also said that state quota for state medical colleges would remain the same. A National Merit List would be issued by The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) along with state-wise ranking list for general category, SC, ST and OBC as well as physically challenged persons.

The eligibility criteria set by the Medical Council of India (MCI) for this Common Entrance Test (CET) MBBS is that a student should obtain minimum 50% marks in all papers of NEET. For SC, ST and OBC candidates the minimum percentage is 40 in each paper and 45 for candidates with locomotory disability of lower limbs.
