NEET Classification

The process of admission of UG, PG, and super specialization in medical courses is conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA), which comes under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and DGHS(Directorate General of Health Services).

Prior to 2019, the examination was managed by the CBSE(Central Board of Secondary Education) in partnership with Prometric Testing Private Limited, headquartered in the United States.

In the year 2014, the Government of India implemented a theory i.e. one nation one exam, the Indian government removed all the state level and all India level (AIPMT) exams to one exam (NEET).
