"Various policies and scholarships made available by the central government as well as state governments have encouraged higher number of students clearing secondary and higher secondary education across the country. We anticipate an increase on the basis of this reason every year," the Hindustan Times quoted Dr Pravin Shingare (Director, Directorate of Medical Education & Research) saying in response to the increasing numbers of candidates.

Many state governments have made NEET mandatory for medical admission. The single entrance exam has reduced the extra burden of students, who earlier appeared for a number of entrance exams at national and state level separately.
