NEET UG is conducted for admissions to MBBS and BDS programmes offered at medical and dental colleges that are approved by the Medical Council of India. NEET undergraduate scores are also used for admission to AYUSH courses.

NEET 2019 was held by the NTA on 5 May. But in Odisha, the medical entrance exam was postponed to 20 May in view of the disruption caused by Cyclone Fani.

The exam was also held on 20 May in Karnataka for hundreds of candidates who missed NEET 2019 on 5 May after the Hampi Express took a 120-kilometre longer route from North Karnataka to Bengaluru. Students had to reach their exam centres by 1.30 pm, but the train reached the station at 2.30 pm. The Indian Railways had written to the Ministry of Human Resource Development to have NTA conduct NEET 2019 for these candidates again.

This year, more than 1.5 million candidates registered for NEET 2019. Reports said candidates found the paper easy to moderately difficult as most of the questions were based on NCERT syllabus.
