Youngsters look forward to cracking NEET to be a doctor. NEET or National Eligibility Entrance Test is one of the entrance exams conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education. Clearing this exam 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
- 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
have separate examinations for entrance. This is because these institutes were set up by separate laws.
- There are a number of medical colleges in India having more than 92,000 seats. We have listed the top colleges below:
- An average of 11,00,000 students compete 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.
