As per the last verdict from Supreme Court on 9th May 2016, all admission to undergraduate medical courses will be taken only through NEET. This applies to all states of India and all medical colleges including private and deemed medical colleges. This overrules any state medical entrance exams that have been already taken.
Further for students who have written NEET Phase I but wish to write it again, can do so. If a student wants to appear for NEET Phase II they will have to give up on their scores of NEET Phase I. Score of NEET Phase II will be considered as final in their case.
Final Date of NEET Phase II is yet undecided. CBSE will decide and declare this date soon. All details will be available on http://aipmt.nic.in/aipmt/Welcome.aspx or alternatively on http://cbseneet.nic.in
