History Of NEET
The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test was preceded by the All India Pre Medical Test. While the plan was to hold the exam for the first time in 2012, it was actually deferred by a year due to opposition from medical colleges and finally came into the picture in 2016.
NEET unlike most medical entrance exams in India can be answered in a variety of languages. English and Hindi were the primary languages to begin with but as the years have progressed many more languages have been added. NEET can be answered in Tamil, Telgu, Marathi, Bengali, Assamese, Gujarati, Kannada, and Oriya along with English and Hindi.
