NEET – UG 2011-12 for MBBS-National Eligibility cum Entrance Test by MCI

This could be a good news for aspiring MBBS students. It is most likely that the Medical Council of India may go ahead with this plans of conducting all India level common entrance test called National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for admission to MBBS and Post Graduate Medical courses. The Supreme Court of India on 13th December 2010 clarified that MCI can go ahead with its plan to hold a single entrance exam for medical admissions from next academic year 2011-12, notwithstanding the pending petitions in the court. If the MCI issues the notification of NEET 2012, a single entrance test each for MBBS and MD courses shall come into force. Presently there are number of medical entrance tests at state and college levels. There are CETs conducted by States, separate test by private colleges and deemed universities. A unified entrance test shall bring down stress on the students. MCI has also proposed to conduct NEET-PG and NEET-SS for admission to Post Graduate and Super Specialty Medical Courses across the country. Syllabus, exam pattern and other modalities for NEET-UG is already released. The same formalities for NEET-PG and NEET-SS are being worked out.

There are 271 medical colleges in the country out of which 138 are run by governments and remaining 133 under private management. There are 31,000 seats on offer for MBBS and another 11,000 seats for PG medical courses. MCI also clarified that state quota in medical colleges would remain intact as National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) will draw up a merit lists at national and state levels separately for General Category, SC, ST and OBC and PD candidates.

The proposed NEET entrance examination would cover all medical colleges except AFMC- Armed Forces Medical College, AIIMS- All India Institute of Medical Sciences and Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (Chandigarh0 as al these were set up by separate laws and may be out of the purview of NEET. The new entrance test of the MCI may not interfere with the management quota of the medical colleges.

    NEET – 2012 is boon to the Indian students, who wants to study MBBS, which reduce the burden to appear multiple exams at different boards. Whereas implementing the new system from 2012 is quite reducule . The students who appear 2012 entrance , joined intermediate in 2010-11 and completes in 2011-12. Their syllabus, text books and teaching is different in different states. The syllabus is still in draft stage. How can the students prepare and compete in the common syllabus, which prescribed by the NCERT which is advantageous for some students. The balance time is hardly five months. Regarding Andhra Pradesh, the students are in dilamma and total confusion. I think it seems A GOOD DECISION TAKEN IN WRONG TIME. MCI AND THE STATE GOVERNMENTS SHOULD THINK OVER ONCE AGAIN AND AGAIN.

  23. Sasa Tetseo says:
