Around 15 lakh aspirants take the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET UG) for admission to undergraduate medical courses like MBBS or BDS. But owing to the high competition due to lesser number of seats available, out of this huge number of test takers, it’s only 50% of the candidates who qualify the exam.
