Appearance in NEET 2017 will be Considered as First Attempt, Clarifies CBSE
The notification for NEET-UG 2017 for the admission to BDS/MBBS course was released on January 31, 2017, and the online application process commenced on the same day.

It is a sigh of relief to the candidates who took AIPMT/NEET before 2017 as Central Board of Secondary Education or CBSE clarified that the candidates who appear for NEET-2017 would be considered as their first attempt and the previous attempts will not be counted. On January 31, 2017, CBSE issued NEET-UG 2017 notification which indicated that candidates who took AIPMT thrice are not eligible for NEET-UG 2017. However, changes have been made in the notification issued by CBSE.
