NEXT (National Exit Test)

NEXT (more commonly known as National Exit Exam for MBBS) will be a single window examination which will replace NEET-PG exam & MCI Screening exam (FMGE: Foreign Medical Graduate Examination). It will be implemented from 2022.

This exam will be mandatory for Indian as well as foreign medical graduates. The students who will pass NEXT exit exam will start their internship. Score (rank) in NEXT exam will also be used to allot PG (MD/ MS/ DNB/ Diploma) seats in Government and private medical colleges in India.

NEXT will standardise the medical education in India. It will judge the conceptual understanding and problem solving skills of final year MBBS students.

Pattern of NEXT exam

NEXT will comprise of two parts: Theory (NEXT-1) and practical (NEXT-2). Theory questions will be multiple choice questions (MCQs). NEXT-1 will be conducted after final year MBBS, before internship. After passing NEXT-1 students will start internship. Those who manage to pass theory (i.e. NEXT-1) will have to clear NEXT-2, the practical test, separately at the end of internship. The score obtained in NEXT-1 will help you to gain a PG seat after internship.
