It was mandatory for all MBBS aspiring students to take the NEET (UG) exam before pursuing their graduation from a foreign institute or university. However, the Medical Council of India (MCI) has made an exception this year amid the COVID-19 pandemic, following which students can skip NEET 2020 exam on 13th September 2020.
However, this exception does have a condition i.e. students must qualify in NEET (UG) 2020 or NEET (UG) 2021.

- As per MCI, “If the student fails to qualify in NEET, the decision to further pursue the medical course in a Foreign Institute would be at his/her own risk. The student will not be allowed to take the MCI Screening Test or FMGE Exam. Further, the State Medical Council or MCI will not grant them the licence of Registered Medical Practitioner.”
The rule of mandatorily qualifying NEET 2020 for pursuing MBBS from a foreign college or university was brought by MCI in 2018. Today, a large number of students hope to pursue their education in medical fields from countries like Russia, Hong Kong, China, Germany, USA and more.
The admissions to the foreign universities usually begin soon and NEET 2020 has already been delayed thrice. Moreover, international travel has been banned amid the COVID-19 pandemic, due to which even after qualifying NEET 2020, students might not be able to travel abroad for education. This was making it difficult for students to take a firm decision regarding their higher education.
Also, all the students must fulfil the criteria under the “Eligibility Requirement for Taking Admission in an Undergraduate Medical Course in a Foreign Medical Institution Regulations, 2002”.
NEET 2020 is scheduled for 13th September 2020. It will be conducted in a single shift in around 6000 exam centres. The total number of participants for NEET this year are expected to be around 15 lakhs.
The verdict is out and it’s again the same. NEET 2020 will not be postponed. The complete order will be uploaded by the court which will reveal what the 3-judge bench of Supreme Court said while rejecting the review plea on postponing NEET and JEE entrance exams during COVID-19 pandemic.
The review plea was heard ‘in-chamber’ where the lawyers were not allowed to put forward any arguments on their behalf. The judges who were hearing the plea are- Justice BR Gavai, Justice Ashok Bhushan, Justice Krishna Murari.

As per the recent reports, the plea was rejected as the bench said that it does not carry any merit for reconsideration. It is to note that NEET 2020 is going to be conducted in a single shift on a single day only i.e. 13th September, with almost double candidates than JEE Main 2020.

As it is evident, the review petition has been rejected. Students who have been deprived of resources amid COVID-19 must request the authorities to ensure proper management at exam centres, so that the risk of spread of coronavirus is decreased. What events will unfold next, will decide the career of more than 15 lakh students.
While, National Testing Agency (NTA) is firm on their decision of conducting JEE Main 2020, six states who filed review petition, are firm to get NEET 2020 postponed. The hearing for the review petition will be heard by the Supreme Court of India at 1:30 PM.
The review petition has been filed on the decision taken by the Supreme Court on not postponing the NEET 2020 and JEE Main exam, specially when COVID-19 cases are rising every day by 80,000. The apex court rejected the plea citing that not conducting entrance exams will put the “Career of students at peril.”
A three-judge panel led by Justice Ashok Bushan will hear the review plea today. The plea was filed by the following opposition states-
- Maharashtra (Uday Ravindra Sawant)
- West Bengal (Moloy Ghatak)
- Chhattisgarh (Amarjeet Bhagat)
- Jharkhand (Rameshwar Oraon),
- Rajasthan (Raghu Sharma),
- Punjab (B S Sidhu)
