Bengaluru: The Karnataka government has opposed the Union Health Ministry and Medical Council of India (MCI)'s decision to introduce a National Exit Test (NEXT) for MBBS graduates.

With medical students strongly objecting to the proposed test, the state government has decided to go along with them and conveyed its opposition  to the Centre, according to official sources.
