The idea of having a common entrance test for medical admissions came into being in the year 2013. This was the year when the first NEET exam was conducted. The aim was to free the students from extra pressure of preparing for multiple medical entrance examinations. Since then, the exam has faced its share of criticism and appreciation. The number of states adopting the exam for admission is increasing.
