  • The National Medical Commission Act has proposed a common exit examination — National Exit Test (NEXT), at the end of the MBBS course.
  • This test shall be held to grant a licence to practice and will also be the basis of admission to postgraduate courses.
  • According to the government, the NEXT will be as effective as the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) which will ensure that only deserving candidates get admission in a private medical institute.
    • As per the earlier provisions, any student who obtains 50% marks in class 12, could gain admission to MBBS courses.
    • Colleges negotiated with students and conducted their own admission tests in a totally non-transparent manner. As a result, many undeserving students got admission.
    • Now only NEET qualified students can get admission, which ensures that merit prevails in admissions.
    • NEXT will ensure that there is a certain standard of medical graduates who pass out from medical colleges.
