The proposed National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to MBBS courses from next year will have objective type questions and a percentile score to determine the merit of all applicants.
The decision was taken at a meeting of Medical Council of India's Board of Governors held this week, MCI sources said.
This is the first time that a merit list will be prepared on the basis of percentile scores of candidates in medical entrance test, unlike in the past when percentage scores were taken into account to prepare the merit list.
The Medical Council of India (MCI), which will hold the all-India medical entrance test next year in collaboration with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE)
, has also decided to keep a cut-off of percentile scores of all applicants to determine the eligible candidates for admission to medical colleges in the country.
