Today we will discuss about “NExT Exam in India for MBBS”.
NExT is currently a proposed amendment to be brought in the form of a test.This will be conducted in the last year MBBS level for all the MBBS enrolled students in India or Abroad . It is currently proposed under the National Commission Medical Bill (NMC). NExT for MBBS is believed to be designed in order to assess the basic skills and knowledge of a medical student.
Amidst all the confusion prevailing about the NExT exam here is some initial information from sources.
There was a meeting with The BoG at ICMR. The meeting was just for proposals. No final conclusion has been made.

As per preliminary information received from sources, NExT will be 2 step exams
NExT 1: 6 to 8 weeks after final proof exams. It will comprise of exams as shown in the slide
NEXT _2: will be held After Internship (after 1 month)
It will be only an exam to test the practical skills of the Doctor.
It will be based on skills learned by MBBS graduate during his/her internship
extra attempts will be provided on failing in 1st attempt
A batch of 2016 should be prepared to give a Qualifying exam at the end of the Internship to be allowed to practice.
There was a proposal of quashing the Final 2 Year Profs, converting them to IA by College and instead there can be conducted a NExT 1 exam (in March) after course completion (in Jan).
In other words, the suggestion was to :
Eliminate the theory exam of 3rd proof part 1 and part 2 and only test their practical exam.
Then at the end of MBBS 3rd proof part 2, NExT -1 will be held comprising of all subjects with the involvement of only applied knowledge from pre & paramedical subjects
In this manner, NExT -1 is claimed to reduce exam burden of students & also act as both licentiate as well as PG entrance exam
Now that plans for quashing an Essay based Final 3rd & 4th Profs are being discussed, the necessity of a Supplementary Exam was strongly put forward and it will be considered, so we can hope for a Supplementary Exam
