Youngsters look forward to cracking NEET to be a doctor. NEET or National Eligibility Entrance Test is conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education. it has replaced AIPMT (All India Pre Medical Test) which was an annual medical entrance examination in India. Before NEET came into the picture, aspirants used to take AIPMT to grab 15 % of Central seats and 85% of State seats in medical and dental colleges run by Central Government, State governments, municipal/local authorities in India (except in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Jammu and Kashmir).
NEET vis-à-vis AIPMT
The Government, in the spirit of one-country one-test, introduced NEET with the purpose of replacing a number of different medical examinations across the country (including AIPMT). First held on May 05, 2013 it was canceled later as per the order of Supreme Court. A number of colleges and institutes, however, took a stay order and conducted their private examinations. The last NEET exam held on May 07, 2017 was of 3 hours. 11 lakh Aspirants have the option of 10 languages to take this exam to get access to 90,000 MBBS and BDS seats in all Government, Private and Deemed Medical colleges across the country. Clearing NEET is required for admission in the below courses:
- MBBS (Graduate Medical Course)
- BDS (Dental Course)
- PG Course in a Government/Private Medical Colleges in India
However, the undergraduate courses run by the below colleges have separate examinations for entrance as these institutes were set up by separate laws:
- All Indian Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi
- Postgraduate Institute for Medical Education and Research in Chandigarh
- Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research in Pondicherry
- There are a number of medical colleges in India having more than 92,000 seats. We have listed the top colleges below:
- All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi
- Christian Medical College, Vellore
- King George’s Medical University, Lucknow
- Institute of Medical Sciences Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi
- Kasturba Medical College, Manipal
- An average of 11,00,000 students competes with each other for these seats.
- Coaching institutes have mushroomed across the country to help and facilitate students crack NEET.
- A majority of coaching institutes have courses in place to start guiding students when they are in class XI itself. This is to ensure that they are completely prepared to face the medical exams when they are appearing for class XII. This optimizes the time spent students spent on their studies.
With these many coaching institutions and their different courses, aspirants face a dilemma in deciding which coaching institute to pick. After all, their career is at stake. We did a thorough analysis on the coaching industry and have handpicked the best institutes in the country. This analysis involved the countrywide data, so we can’t pinpoint the institution’s performance in a particular city.

Kota was in the limelight when NEET results were declared (6 out of top 10 students and 12 out of top 20 students were from Kota). Multiple coaching institutions have multiple centers in Kota for students’ convenience making the atmosphere suitable for medical entrance preparation. It’s said that a coaching institution can only guide you to a certain extent, the remaining path you have to tread yourself. So no matter which coaching institution you join, success will be a direct resultant of the efforts put by you. Each coaching institute has its own set of correspondence courses but seeing the phenomenal results of 23 students of correspondence courses in Top 100, our recommendation would be Narayana Correspondence courses. The second choice for correspondence course would be Aakash because of its most vast network and amazing results.
