Merger of National Exit Exam with Final year MBBS Exam


In a major development that would affect the doctors nationwide, the Rajya Sabha Committee decides merger of National Exit Exam with Final Year MBBS Exam.

Check out the details

There was a debate brewing around the proposal of a common exit exam after MBBS. The committee has presented its recommendations:

  • The Committee merged the National Licentiate Exam/NLE/Exit Exam with Final Year MBBS Exam and that its state level conduction.
  • It stipulated that the Exam will be short question based. Also, it will be of the same level as the current final professional theory Exam.
  • It separated PG NEET Exam from NLE. Seems like, it believes that one cannot treat with equivalence, a qualifying exam and a rating one.
  • Further, it mentions that Medicos from Institutions on which NMC Bill is not applicable, will need to clear the national Licentiate Exam. Institutions like AIIMS, JIPMER etc fall in this bracket.

What it means?

The National Medical Commission Bill brought the National Licentiate Examination into existence in the Clause 15.

The Clause 15 became a major source of disagreement between the Doctors and the government, sometimes manifesting as street protests.

The Doctors opposed an additional Exam for practicing, while the government justified the move citing Uniformity in Medical Services across the nation.

With the announcement of merger of National Exit Exam with Final Year MBBS Exam, the committee shared some observations.

It admitted that NLE will create additional stress for the students. This holds especially for those who belong to weaker sections of society and states.

It mandates that the common test be conducted at the State level which will get integrated nationwide as the system strengthens.

In addition, the committee feels that combining the Licentiate Exam with the PG Entrance would make the students focus on the entrance test only. Gaining knowledge during their UG Years and Internship will take a back seat.

Hence, the existence of PG NEET continues till a mechanism involves that protects all interests.

Further, any State University/State Health university or any other suitable agency shall conduct the common final year MBBS examination.

Moksh – Latest News Update – 23/02

NEET spreads its aegis: AYUSH comes under w.e.f. 2018


Moksh – Latest News Update – 23/02. It became official today. Especially relevant for all who wish to make their career in any field of AYUSH, have to go through NEET 2018 Exam.

AYUSH is a body governing admissions to all Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and finally, Homoeopathy.

First, last year, the Ministry of AYUSH had stated that admission to AYUSH would be through NEET.

While some states like Jammu & Kashmir, Maharashtra, West Bengal etc, managed to do so in 2017, other states didn’t.

Now, with the confirmation from CBSE, it has become mandatory.



The Ministry of AYUSH justified its decision by stating that with the growth in popularity of these branches of Alternative Medicine, it is imperative that we improve the quality of the human brain taking these up.

To take a look at the exact Order form, click here.

Therefore, we see that the Centre is in the clear mood of consolidating and revamping the field of Medicine. It is a commendable move but still, the dream of becoming a Medico seems elusive.

As we speak, we need more than 600,000 Doctors to fulfill the needs of the Health Care Sector. Yet, the number of seats available in Government Medical Colleges is startlingly low. Furthermore, the cost of doing MBBS from the Private Colleges is staggering.

Consequently, Moksh seeks to make all aspirants aware that though the statistics are discouraging, there are so many great options. Knowing is healthy.

Take some time and check your options in USA, Russia, China & so on.

Happy surfing!

NEET 2018 Politics continues.

The controversies regarding the conduction of NEET 2018 continue to boil grimly in the underbellies of Tamil Nadu. The unrest has been growing in the southern state of India for quite a while now.

Adding woe to worries, the erstwhile Minister of State Cabinet, Mr K N Nehru, made a statement yesterday. Since long, He pointed out that the students of the State have been demanding exemption from NEET altogether. He warned that if the students’ demand was not met this time, and if he comes into office, he will allow overt malpractices in NEET 2018 all across the State.NEET 2018 Politics

He also didn’t refrain from saying that Unfair Means were rampant in States like MP & Bihar, thus trying to justify his former statement.

With NEET getting closer everyday, such diatribe would create agitation in the minds of NEET aspirants.

“Exemption demand from NEET in Tamil Nadu takes major political hue”

Exemption demand from NEET in Tamil Nadu takes major political hue

exemption demand

Political motivation darkens the horizon of NEET arena in Tamil Nadu. A group – The Federation for Protection of Democratic Rights – had taken up the exemption demand of Tamil Nadu from NEET; as a consequence of the recent revocation of the decree pertaining to inclusion of State Syllabi in NEET; and now, mainstream political parties have made it into a cause for political campaign.

furthermore 5th of February has been chosen as a date for launching protests by FPDR, and then, at first by DMK and now, MDMK & CPI have decided to intervene. They demand that since the Centre decided against separate papers for different languages in NEET 2018. Tamil Nadu no longer wished to be a part of the same.

MDMK General Secretary Vaiko colored the canvas in his own way. They saying that the aforesaid decision of the Centre was an attempt to patronize the power of the State Government.

Beating his own drum, PMK Youth wing leader & MP Anbumani Ramadoss went as far as to say that if it could not stop NEET, the State Government should resign.

The concern is that if the Supreme Court is moved in this situation, it being a strife between Union & State Government, the Court might be left with no choice but to issue a stay on NEET in Tamil Nadu, in all probability, jeopardizing the future of many aspirants. It would also be a challenge to the uniformity in quality of candidates that a centrally conducted Entrance test provides.

NEET 2018 Eligibility Criteria of Upper Age Limit shrinks


The controversial 11th Hour decisions pertaining to NEET 2018 continue to plague the final phase of preparation of youngsters. In Gazette Notification, the Central Government has cut down the NEET 2018 Eligibility Criteria of Upper Age to 25 years.

Again, the Order comes at a point where thousands of students above 25 years have invested time & energy for at least a year, the value of one whole year at this turn of life can be appreciated by one & all.

Needless to say, it will also create a pressure on candidates nearing the upper age limit. Because they have realized today that their options have drastically been cut down. The Directive comes neutralizing an earlier decision by Supreme Court on March 31, 2017. In that, no Upper Age Limit was stipulated.

Last year also, a situation had erupted when the upper age limit of 25 years had been published directly in the NEET Brochure. The decision was revoked after protests that there had been no prior intimation.

Dr Rachit Agrawal, NEET PG 2018 Topper – Story & Tips

Category : NEET News

Dr Rachit Agrawal, NEET PG 2018 Topper – Story & Tips

Time has spewed off another thrilling story of Success born of perseverance and hard work. The Fat Lady sings – No success without Hard Work and invariably, most turn a deaf year.

Its time to recognize Dr Rachit Agrawal, born & brought up in Ahmedabad! For betterment, let’s call it a coincidence that Dr Agrawal’s father & brother are Medicos, the former an Ophthalmologist and the latter, a Radiologist. Also, let’s ignore that he was a good student in School too, he managed to score 95.1% in HSC. This deliberate overlooking of facts is recommended because, genetic predisposition and consistency in Academic performance are overrated. Genetics is the result of accumulation of traits over generations and every examination is a separate incident, if you know what is indicated.

Dr Rachit Agrawal NEET PG score

Dr Rachit Agrawal scored 975 out of 1200, superseding every other Doctor in India, a simple fact that is the consequence of a complex combination of conscious decisions. All one needs to do is examine his Modus Operandi, his way of working.

A handsome young man, with a light, fresh line of moustache and a look of endearing naivety, Dr Agrawal is a perfect balance of focus and simplicity. He very openly discloses that he started preparing for NEET PG 2018 about 4 years ago, sometime during his II year of MBBS. Perseverance and consistency of degree of efforts was the key. Dr Rachit Agrawal specifically mentions that the going got tough during his Internship. He had to attend the Hospital for 10 hrs. Then he found in him the will to study for 8 to 9 hrs. He uses an adjective ‘grueling’ to describe the phase of his preparation during Final Year.

There you go! Put simply, as all have heard plenty of times, there’s no short-cut to success. Also, putting on a garb of satisfaction is a way chosen by the weak.

Uniformity in NEET UG 2018 Question Paper

Category : NEET News

No separate NEET UG 2018 Question Paper for different Languages

Continuing the trend of major decisions regarding NEET UG 2018 question paper, the Apex Court has stipulated that creating different papers for the 10 different languages, including Hindi & English, hampers the purpose of uniformity. The Court raised doubts pertaining to the effectiveness of judging the competence of the students if the Questions are of different degree of difficulty.

The Court was deliberating upon a plea put up by ‘Sankalp’ charitable trust requesting a decision instructing CBSE to have one set of QP, translated in different Languages, to which the Court agreed.

The CBSE concurred and stated that from current session, only one QP will be set and it will merely be translated in different languages.

This is definitely a sensible step to take. It is hard to imagine how such a practice was conceived in the first place. It was a great lacuna in the process and the decision to restructure this area of NEET is welcome and commendable.
