The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test or NEET is an entrance examination which is conducted annually for admissions to Medical and Dental courses in government or private medical colleges across the country. NEET 2016 was held in two phases this year. NEET mandate is new and has been implemented after lot of confusion and discussions and NEET score will be considered for admission to medical and dental courses across the country. This might act as a reason that large number of students across the country are applying for COMEDK.

Since, deemed universities and colleges are still not out with any notification on admissions or calendar of events, this also can serve as a reason for hike in the number of applications.
