About NEET UG Examination:
NEET-UG has replaced the All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT) and all individual MBBS exams conducted by states or colleges themselves in 2013. However, many colleges and institutes had taken a stay order and conducted private examinations for admission to their MBBS and BDS courses. Last year, NEET-UG was conducted by the CBSE on May 6 and the results were declared on June 4.
