Abstract

In India, in 2016, the medical council of India introduced one single common entrance test called NEET

National Eligibility Entrance Test for admission to all the medical and paramedical courses after 12th

standard. It allowed dental admission to all the colleges including the government as well as the private.

Many developed countries have evolved dental admission tests based on the academic research surveys,

student performances and other relevant parameters. Since NEET is the first attempt by the government of

India to create a central admission process, it is clearly in its early process and there is an incredible need

for scientific data to evolve the system. The aim of this study is to analyze if the admissions through NEET

affected the quality of students with respect to their academic performance pursuing the undergraduate

dental program, especially in the private colleges.
