As per latest introduction to draft bill, after MBBS, students have to appear in National Exit Test or NEXT.
NEXT will substitute three tests if it is held. These include (1) NEET PG which is currently conducted for postgraduate admissions, (2) Recruitment exam for Central Health Services, (3) Foreign Graduate Medical Examination (FMGE).
Another key point presented by government officials in favour of NEXT is that it will act as an indicator for colleges. To elaborate, if a large number of students from a certain college clear NEXT then it will mean that that college has good educational standards.
In released suggestions in bill, Government has invited comments: General Public is hereby requested to send suggestions / feedback in respect of the draft Bill. Suggestions may be furnished to [email protected] by 06.01.2017.
