yes. Before May 2018, NEET is not must to study medicine in abroad. But now it is must. I thought that this happened because of screening test pass percentage and other criteria, MCI (Medical Council of India) decided that NEET (entrance exam) is also must for students who go to study medicine in abroad. This rule will be applicable to students who go to study medicine in abroad after June 1,2018. Once you decide to go abroad for your medical education, first you must clear the NEET exam which is conducted in India. Then only you can eligible to apply further. If you are not clear the exam and complete your medical education in abroad, you will not allow to sit for a screening exam and also you will not allow to practice in India.
I hope it will help you
You need not attempt NEET test as it is only valid in India. But you need to undergo tests executed by the Universities in Canada.
