The Indian government recently stated that they do not currently plan to conduct the NEET UG examination in the same way as the JEE (Mains) exam, which provides candidates with two opportunities to take the test each year. In response to a question in Lok Sabha, Dr. Bharati Pravin Pawar, the Minister of State in the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, explained that according to Section 14 of the National Medical Commission (NMC) Act, 2019, the NEET exam must be held as a common and standardized entrance test for all medical institutions in the country, for both undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

The National Medical Commission (NMC) and the National Testing Agency (NTA) have both confirmed that there are currently no plans to offer two chances a year for the NEET UG exams.

The NEET exam is considered a significant reform that promotes meritocracy and provides opportunities for talented students to gain admission into the top medical institutions in India. This has also resulted in a decrease in malpractice and an increase in transparency in the medical admission process. The exam has also alleviated the burden on prospective students by reducing the need to appear in multiple entrance exams.

The National Testing Agency (NTA) conducts the NEET (UG) exam, and the syllabus for the exam is based on the syllabi of all State Boards and National Boards.

However, both the National Medical Commission (NMC) and the NTA have confirmed that there are no plans to offer two chances for the NEET UG exams in a year.

Meanwhile, the Common University Entrance Test (CUET)-UG will be conducted in three shifts per day this year instead of two. The University Grants Commission (UGC) Chairman, M Jagadesh Kumar, has also stated that plans to merge the CUET-UG with critical entrance exams such as JEE and NEET will be announced at least two years in advance.

When asked about the proposal to merge the Common University Entrance Test (CUET) with the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) for engineering and the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) for medical, UGC Chairman M Jagadesh Kumar stated that it is possible to merge the exams. The specifics of the merger are still being worked out. However, the Chairman also mentioned that any announcement of the merger will be made at least two years before its implementation so that students can prepare for it accordingly.
