According to Dr Bipin Batra, Executive Director, National Board of Examination, an exit test is thought to be an important implement for the fulfillment of the basic criteria related to the quality and proper diagnosis by physicians for the society. In addition to the Section 10E, the Indian Medical Council Act 1956, recommends a uniform national exit test (NEXT) that is carried out by all medical institutions at the undergraduate level.

No impact will be found in case of foreign medical graduates if the exit exam is implemented.

Although 12 states and 4 union territories express interest to this exit test to achieve the better quality of the Indian doctors but there are some other states that oppose this announcement.

The states that showed interest to make NEXT mandatory include: Delhi, Puducherry, Chandigarh, Andaman and Nicobar, Chhattisgarh,  Bihar, Maharashtra, Haryana, Jharkhand, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Kerala, Meghalaya, Himachal Pradesh, Odisha and Punjab.

Nine members of states, those who have refused to make NEXT mandatory include: Telengana, Rajasthan, Goa, West Bengal, Assam, Jammu & Kashmir, Karnataka, Uttarakhand and Andhra Pradesh.

This proposal of NEXT has been made in order to improve the Medical sector including the replacement of the MCI with National Medical Commission (NMC). It is thought that NMC will manage UG and PG authorization, education and college ratings.

In December 2016, PrepLadder had run a campaign regarding the National Exit exam (NEXT).

A total of 1.68 lakh people sent their opinion to MOHFW through PrepLadder.

Of which 96,000 were sent against the bill and 72,000 were sent in favor of the bill.
