Assam is a northeastern Indian state famous for its biodiversity, archaeological sites, and tea plantations. Assam is derived from the term asama, which means “peerless” in the now-extinct Ahom language. Assamese, an Indo-Aryan language, is the state’s official and primary language, and an unbroken record of Assamese literary history can be traced back to the 14th century.

There were four NEET exam centres in Assam for NEET 2021. According to some unofficial records, even in the mid of this pandemic majority of the registered Assamese students have attended the NEET 2021 examination. Assam is home to seven medical colleges and all seven of them are government-owned and there are no private medical colleges in Assam. Let’s have a look at the top government medical colleges of Assam.
