    Although the motive of introducing the National Exit Test (NEXT) was to improve the quality of doctors in the country, it has not been accepted by half of the Indian states. “There were only 12 states and four union territories in the country, which had showed green signal to this move” said by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare replying to a Right to Information (RTI) query.


    The states which come in the support of this exam include Delhi, Andaman and Nicobar, Chandigarh, and Puducherry. They actually want to make it mandatory to enhance the quality of healthcare professionals in the country. The list of other states which have given their approval for the same encompasses Punjab, Odisha, Meghalaya, Himachal Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Kerala, Haryana, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, and Bihar.


    There were nine states, which did not come in the support of making the test mandatory for students. These states include Uttarakhand, Jammu and Kashmir, Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal, Karnataka, Goa, Assam, Telangana, and Rajasthan.


    According to the proposal passed in 2016, those medical students who have completed their degree courses from private and government colleges must appear for NEXT exam to get the certification of MBBS. That was initiated just with a motto of improving the quality of medical education in the country.  


    The replacement of the Medical Council of India (MCI) with a National Medical Commission (NMC) by initiating this move, a big reform is going to be a part of the medical sector. Once the proposal has been accepted throughout the country, it has become much convenient to oversee undergraduate and postgraduate education, accreditation, as well as college ratings. With the introduction of the Indian Medical Council (Amendment) Bill 2016, it is important to provide their opinions by all the states on the compulsion of NEXT exam. Although, most of students and colleges of the country don’t take seriously the compulsiveness of the NEXT exam, people are still waiting for the final verdict on the mandatory of this exam. We hope for the best outcomes in the favor of MBBS students!!
