NEET eligibility is not necessary for medical studies abroad.

Medical Council of India took step

CBSE can get the participant checked


It is not necessary to obtain a NEET eligibility certificate in this session alone for pursuing MBBS or its equivalent in medical science abroad. This will be valid only for those candidates who have not registered for NEET this year or have not appeared in the NEET exam.



Recently, the Ministry of Health has taken this decision in collaboration with the Medical Council of India. In the notification, MCI has also clarified that students who have appeared in NEET 2018 but did not qualify will not be considered eligible for medical studies abroad.



Kia drop for this session


Students going abroad were also being considered for qualifying NEET, which the ministry dropped for this session. Students who have not registered or appeared for NEET can obtain a certificate in this regard by giving an undertaking to MCI.




Certificate can be canceled


The special thing is that if needed, the council can get the CBSE checked about these candidates. Also, if found wrong, it also includes a provision to cancel the eligibility certificate of the fake candidates.




so took this decision


This decision has been taken due to the petition filed in the Delhi High Court, in which students aspiring to study medicine abroad were asked to exempt them from NEET in this session. The court had suggested the petitioner to seek exemption from NEET for this session from the council, which was accepted by the MCI.




MCI gives certificate

Before NEET was compulsory, candidates wishing to study medicine abroad were required to score at least 50 per cent marks in Physics, Chemistry and Biology in class 12, after which they were issued an eligibility certificate by the MCI. In March this year, a decision was taken to equate the NEET result with the eligibility certificate, which was withdrawn recently.
