Does NCERT book is sufficient for auu vet
shobhna chaturvedi
Hi, as the syllabus mainly consist of the topics in NCERT books of class 12th, thus, we may say, if a candidate goes well through them, he/she would definitely get its benefit. However, it does not mean that you cannot refer to other books. But it would be advisable not to go behind a number of books while preparing for the exam.

Is this exam is tough than NEET..? What is the cut of for aauvat
shobhna chaturvedi
Hi Parbeen, if you are preparing for MBBS, then, NEET is the best option. Otherwise, you can go for AAU VET if you career choice is in veterinary science. The level of exam depends on the number of applicants appearing in the respective exam along with the future options one get after taking the concerned course.
