  1. I shall be so obligated to you if you could clarify the matter: Is NEET necessary to join JIPMER, instead of separate Exam.conducted by JIPMER? And is the case of AIIMS?

    • Hi M.Doss
      JIPMER, NEET, and AIIMS are all separate exams for getting admission into Medical Courses.
      NEET Exam includes admission into Govt./Central/ESIC Colleges. Whereas, the JIPMER and AIIMS Exams are conducted separately.
      Through these exams, you will get admission in their respective college and universities.
      NEET is not applicable for JIPMER and AIIMS Admission. I hope this helps.
