NEET UG 2024 updated syllabus

NEET UG 2024: Students passing 10+2 without Biology are eligible to appear for medical entrance exam


The National Medical Commission (NMC) has made an important decision, allowing class 12 students who have studied physics, chemistry, biology, or biotechnology along with English as an additional subject to participate in the NEET-UG examination. This decision is applicable even to students whose applications were previously rejected.

Previously, the Medical Council of India (MCI) had regulations specifying that undergraduates must have completed two years of regular or continuous study of physics, chemistry, biology or biotechnology, and English in Class 11 and 12 with practical components. However, the NMC noted that these provisions were challenged and quashed by the Delhi High Court in May 2018.

Considering the flexibility introduced by the New Education Policy and the changing approach towards the study of various subjects in Class 12, the NMC has revisited the previous regulations.
