NEET is a national-level entrance test which is mandatory to study undergraduate medical courses in India. Since last year, the test is also being used for Nursing and Health Sciences courses.
In a major step, the National Medical Commission (NMC) has removed the upper age limit for appearing in the exam. This could be one of the reasons for such a high number of candidates appearing in the exam this year.
