Common Entrance Test Syllabus for Medical College Admissions

medicalMedical Council of India (MCI) and Union health ministry has mutually agreed for the Common Entrance Test for Medical College Admissions in India. MCI was asked to prepare the syllabus for the test while CBSE was chosen to conduct the Test, the syllabus for Common Entrance Test has been published on MCI website.

The test will be conducted for MBBS (UG) course, the Common Entrance Test will be called as ‘National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test for undergraduates (NEET-UG)’. NEET-UG will be the only entrance test an MBBS aspirant has to take from the next academic year. Similarly plans are in place for admissions into PG & Super Specialty Courses, these tests are scheduled to be held next year.

Earlier the Government of Karnataka & Orissa has raised concerns over drafting a common syllabus. MCI has went a head and published the syllabus and would take suggestions from the public till August 2011.

The syllabus is prepared  by NCERT (National Council of Education Research and Training) for the core subjects Physics, Chemistry & Biology. Link is provided below:

  34. Sayan Kramakar says:

    Its very pleasing to note that ultimately the medical council of India has agreed to go for a CET for pre-medical aspirants. Being a student of the same category, I am feeling very relaxed about the fate awaiting.

  35. A K Jain says:

    Syllabus is an important issue which must be settled as early as possible without delays. Also the final decision must also not be delayed. It mus also be seen that there must be controls and checks in respect of following malpractices :
    1.Bogus domicile to fill their forms from more than one state e.g. Some students do regular coaching classes in Kota (Rajsthan) but show their regular admission in some school registered in Delhi to be eligible for DUMET. In such cases some schools and coachings are collobrating.
    2.Rackets where brilliant students of MBBS are paid to write exams at certain pre decided centres in the names of other students where centres are also collaborating.
    3.Leaking of exam paper and sold at high prices to a few, just one day in advance.
    A K Jain, Delhi-92

    • Shanthi Bhushan says:

      Hi Jain,
      I share your concern. Last year there were reports of irregularities in DUMET and probably there were many such incidents which went unreported. One of the objectives of NEET is to stop such malpractices.
      1. In your first point, MCI / CBSE officials should check the domicile certificate thoroughly through proper channels to ensure such malpractices dont take place.
      2. NEET proposes UID identification which is based on biometric data to stop impersonation. The examination centre should be allotted on random basis in the nearest place of residence.
      3. MCI/CBSE should bring in online testing to avoid paper leakage.

      MCI should consult experts on the above issues and decide the best course of action to stop such malpractices. MCI should ensure that the test is conducted in a fair & honest manner to evoke confidence amongst students & parents.

  36. abin m abraham says:

    sir ,i would like to know which all colleges are avoided from NEET 2012 exam ? heard afmc is avoided and conducting seperate exam ?

  37. rakesh gupta , Ahmedabad says:

    Hi Divya,
    The plan is for including all Govt & Private medical colleges, except AIIMS & AFMS. But Govt is considering the idea of including these institutes also. The decision would be forthcoming sooner or later.

    Even the private management quota of seats need to be filled on the basis of NEET rank only. Thus there wont be separate tests conducted by such private medical colleges in future.

    Regarding conducting exam, MCI had announced that it will hold the exam in May 2012.
    Bye

  38. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHEN THIS SYSTEM IS GOING TO BE IN ACTION AND WHICH COLLEGES ARE INCLUDED IN IT?????

    • Srikanth says:

      Hi Divya, The common entrance test will be from next academic year i.e 2012 all medical colleges in India will accept the score of this common entrance test (NEET).

  39. DR says:

    ITS GOOD BUT PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY SHOULD BE AVOIDED IN THIS…….

  40. NIKITA SACHDEV says:

    WELL..I REALLY SUPPORT THIS IDEA OF COMMON ENTRANCE TEST AND I DO APPRECIATE IT..BUT..AS PER THE SYLLABUS..SOME CHAPTERS OF PHYSICS HAVE BEEN INCREASED AND PHISIOLOGY HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THE SYLLABUS..I FEEL..THIS IS SO NOT RIGHT..WE HAVE OPTED FOR MEDICAL..AND WE SHOULD BE JUDGED ON SUBJECTS LIKE ANATOMY..PHYSIOLOGY..AND BOTANY..AND NOT ON SUBJECTS LIKE PHYSICS..SO..I FEEL..THERE IS A GREAT NEED TO REDUCE THE SYLLABUS OF PHYSICS…AND PLEASE LET US KNOW..FROM WHICH YEAR IS THIS SYSTEM GOING TO COME IN ACTION..AND HOW MANU COLLEGES ARE A PART OF THIS ENTRANCE TEST…

  41. Krishna Kumar (Bangalore) says:

    with my arms wide open I welcome the decision of MCI & Central Govt to hold the common entrance exam (NEET) in 2012. MCI, being a Apex body controlling medical education, has initiated reforms at the right time as we see lot of irregularities taking place even in medical field. To arrest such hazards, we need NEET on a national scale to select students on merit.
    Today, private and deemed universities are taking poor parents and students for a ride. These institutes have totally commercialised the medical education and yet producing mediocre doctors. We should somehow arrest this social menace. So, everyone should join hands in promoting NEET, not withstanding some short comings here and there. Each one of us has social responsibility and especially as a prospective doctor we have more. Thus, we should go all out in seeing the success of NEET in 2012.

  42. priya says:

    This decision by MCI is not at all fair.This syllabus is only suitable for CBSE syllabus. What about the rest of state board students. Students who are not rich will be studying in corporation schools who might not be much confident in english or hindi. Is that meant that students from rural areas are not eligible to become doctors…….!!!!
    MCI has to think in all aspects and not only about CBSE students.

    • abhishek says:

      i agree with u.

    • A. Kottavan says:

      MCI decision to conduct NEET in Bilingual Language Basis(only in Hindi and English.). This is undemocratic. See here:
      1. “National Talent Search Examination (NTSE)” is conducted all over India. Questions will be set in Bilingual Basis. One language is English and the other language is optional (which is any one of the 13 below mentioned languages).
      1. Assamese
      2. Bengali
      3. Kannada
      4. Malayalam
      5. Tamil
      6. Urdu
      7. Punjabi
      8. Telugu
      9. Hindi
      10. Marathi
      11. Gujarathi
      12. Odisha
      This is fair. It is giving level playing field all Indian languages but there are some hindrances,
      (i) NCERT books are only available in English and Hindi.
      (ii) Syllabus is based on NCERT. This is highly superior to State Board Syllabus.
      Suggestions:
      1. Translation of all NCERT books to all Indian languages.
      2. States should adopt Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Biology and other technical subjects as per NCERT syllabus. This will give the uniform technical education to the whole of our country.
      3. MCI should wait until all the states implement the uniform technical subjects throughout the country, after that it can enact NEET.

      • R Thennavan says:

        Hi Kottavan,
        I agree with your suggestion of giving the language option to the student for taking up the exam. This is however not a long lasting solution. Regarding your other points however, I disagree with your suggestions for the following reasons:
        a. For the sake of national level exams in medical and engg why should the State Board match its syllabus to the CBSE or NCERT standard? If you see, only a small portion of students take either medical or engg, rest of the students opt for other courses like science, paramedical, nursing,Statistics short term technical courses etc.,
        b. While deciding the current syllabus, the concerned State Govts diluted the syllabus deliberately in comparison to NCERT, to suit an average student’s IQ level. If the State Govt decides to revise the syllabus for all science subjects and maths, don’t you think the majority of the students who don’t opt for either medical or engg would get affected???
        c. If the Govt decides to straightway revise its syllabus matching NCERT, you would see lot of failures and drop outs. This is not precisely the State Govts want.
        Then what is the solution??? There is a easy solution for this. In view of national tests for medical and engg, a student before he takes up HSC course has to decide what he wants. If he wants medical or engg then he should choose HSC in CBSE schools and he should choose english medium. I suggest English medium because MBBS and Engg is taught in english in almost all universities. Two years of HSC would give him language exposure and also the tough syllabus would prepare him for taking up national tests.
        You should also note here that students coming from schools other than english struggle a lot while doing MBBS or engg and we see many persons have arrears and some even commit suicide because they are unable to complete the course.
        So, in my opinion making a Uniform Syllabus in all States would be fool hardy and would be against the principles of social justice.

        Students who are prepared to work hard and take up NEET in 2012 should go ahead, whereas students who feel they need more time and resources to write NEET should take the exam in subsequent years, say in 2013 or later. For the sake of such few thousands of students, NEET should not be postponed. Such weak students need not worry about losing one year because Doctor’s profession is such that there is no retirement for them, they can practice as long as they would like to.

        • Aa. Kottavan says:

          You are very correct.

          • Aa. Kottavan says:

            Dear friends,
            Kindly go through the recent advertisement of our Indian Railway. Please see the language pattern adopted by Ministry of Railways. It gives a level playing field to all sections of Indian population where no one will feel discriminated on the basis oftheir language. I hope that MCI will also emulate the same language pattern. I am not against official language. I wanted the rights of all language students are to be protected. So the question paper should be set in Tri-Lingual form (TLF) such as State mother language (or student’s option at the time of filling the application), Official language of India (Hindi) and English. Please don’t bluff to the people that there are 1000 languages are spoken in India, so it is not possible for MCI to set the question papers in all regional languages.

            • R Thennavan says:

              My dear Kottavan,
              Pl do not compare the example of Railways to that of MCI. They are different. The reasoning is as follows:
              a. Railways advt is for a Job placement wherein after getting selected the candidates working language would be in one of the tri-language, say either in English or Hindi or local language. In the case of MBBS, the medium of instruction is only in ENGLISH. The local language is of no use.
              2. If you read the Advt carefully, the jobs are divided on the basis of location. for e.g Siliguri, Ranchi, Kolkata etc. The candidates selected from these locations would be posted in their respective location so that it becomes easy for them to work with the knowledge of local language. For e.g. candidate selected in Kolkata would be posted in that region so that his local Bengali would be handy in executing his job.
              Whereas, in MBBS, the candidate selected may get any medical college in any corner of India. For e.g. candidate from Chennai may get admitted in Orissa or Punjab, where his local language Tamil is of no use at all.

              So, please do not extend your logic in the case of MCI. I agreed with your language suggestion on a short term basis say for the next 2 or 3 yrs only. This is for accommodating students who have already chosen their local language as medium of education in their Higher Sec course. However, this option should be withdrawn after 3 years as we should encourage only english medium candidates to enter MBBS as long as MBBS remains in english medium. Students who are in their X Std now should switch over to English medium schools preferably CBSE to do their HSC.

              In future,when we begin teaching MBBS in local language, at that time, we can think of including local language students for admission.However, this is never going to happen, because the medical colleges can only teach in one language, not even in tri-langugage.

              In the interest of the country and in his own interest, a student has to learn english in the Higher secondary stage itself, so that he can understand classes in english and mind you it also opens the door for international education. Remember, today, a student who is unable to get MBBS admission in India has the option of studying in Russia, China, Georgia etc., all in English.
              So, we have a tricky issue on hand and not that easy to have language options in MCI on a long term basis.
              bye

        • donesgeorge says:

          You are having a hidden agenda. You dont want all merit candidates to be participated but to reduce competition on the basis of language and simply wanted to loot the seats of regional languages.

    • Anil Jain, Dharwar says:

      Hi Priya,
      The question we need to answer here is Whether we want a good competent Doctor or a bad doctor ? The idea of NEET came in, after it was found that the standard of a section of present day doctors are not good enough. To say in computer Jargon it is “Garbage in Garbage out”. So to say, if we select weak students for MBBS course, by all probability these students may turn out to be weak ones at the end of the course.
      The country wants corruption free and transparent society. Nobody is prepared to do compromise today. NEET is the only solution now for achieving corruption free and transparent selection of candidates for MBBS. This would ensure that doctors coming out of these batches would surely be of good quality. I think that answers the question.
      You may extend your logic for some other course may be, for e.g. nursing or any other non-critical study. When it comes to the stage of life or death, we should choose the best ones for medical study. We should not do compromise on this.

      Students from corporation schools / rural areas are welcome to take NEET. IF they are not confident, they can prepare themselves and attempt in the subsequent years. MCI does give at least 3 attempts to get selected. Somebody in this Forum had already pointed out that “There is no retirement for Doctors, they can practice as long as they would like to”. Hence, without caring about losing time, the weak students can equip themselves for taking up NEET in subsequent years.
      Hope that answers all your questions.
      Anil Jain

  43. the syllabus should be devoid of Botany-Burden…

  44. tulika says:

    well in my view i welcomed the neet but i m disagree with the syllabus as there is too much physics and chem which has no use in further stydy of M.B.B.s….

  45. Doctoronline says:

    As being doctor we also think that we should change the conventional pmt syllbus where contains huge physics,chemistry,botany etc. we can exclude lots of chapters from pmt syllabus which are not necessary to study for a mbbs aspirant rather than a burden. we have send feedbacks to mci about the syllabus and request to all of you to send feedback to mci about the futility of so much physics,chem for a mbbs aspirant. pls send them the feedback. you know the last date 11.08.2011. so pls do it quickly for justice.

    • mohd aslam says:

      yes sir,
      it is goood to knw that there will be common medical entrance in our country.. but u r also very true that the syllabus of physics, chemistry and botany is too much.. so please do something for that…
      Thank You

  46. its nice very to have a common exam in 2012

  47. Dones George says:

    1. Discrimination for Regional Language students:
    The syllabus framed up for the proposed entrance test is of English Language. Presently, Tamiladu state is having a population of 7.25 crore who are obviously have their mother language Tamil. Out of the total schools present in Tamilnadu, majority of the schools are following Tamil medium. Most of these Tamil medium schools are located in rural areas and areas where SCs and STs are concentrated. Hence the point I wanted to draw your attention is that “In Tamilnadu, majority of the 12th standard students are from Tamil medium.”
    They lack English language skills. If the syllabus and questions are set in English language, how the Tamil medium students after studying their 12th std. in Tamil medium can give feedback and write the entrance exam in English. This policy is highly discriminatory for Tamil medium students (all regional language students too). Hence, the syllabus and questions should also be put in Tamil medium along with English.
    In our country, 22 languages are enlisted under 12th schedule of the constitution. The purpose of enacting these 22 languages under 12th schedule of the constitution is to give proper representation to these languages and make the country so democratic where no regional students feels it is discriminatory. Hence, the syllabus and questions are to be put up in all 22 scheduled languages along with English.

    2. Discrimination for State Board students:
    The syllabus framed for entrance test is prepared by NCERT which is of CBSE syllabus. Out of the total schools present in Tamilnadu, 90% of the schools are functioning under State Board. This state board syllabus is highly inferior to the CBSE syllabus. With this difficulty, how the state board students can able to perform well in entrance test? This policy of imposing the syllabus of NCERT for all India common entrance test is highly discriminatory for all State Board students. It is your kind attention that “All India common level syllabus is not possible unless all states are following NCERT syllabus”. Hence this policy is discriminatory for all 22 scheduled language state boards. If at all it is implemented, it is considered as discriminatory, forceful imposition, undemocratic and killing the aspirations of all state board students becoming doctor.

    • Dinesh Kumar says:

      I want to clarify few things to Dones George through this Forum. If a student cannot take an entrance exam in English, how can he expect to study MBBS in English??? I am sure you are aware that all the medical colleges in India teach MBBS only in English.

      Regarding syllabus, it is the State’s fault in diluting the standard in comparison to CBSE or NCERT. Today in Tamilnadu, State Syllabus students who aspire to join IIT / AIIMS /AIPMT / JIPMER and other entrance exams are preparing themselves by learning lessons in NCERT syllabus to take up such exams. Aspiring medical students need to take extra efforts to qualify themselves to face the examination. The information technology has grown up so much that rural students today can undergo online coaching, get books, CDs and practise for entrance exams. I wonder what for the laptops are being given as freebees by the Govt to HSC students. Are they for learning or simply for playing games?? Most of the State Students who are learning by Rote system struggle in their medical / Engg degree which are based on understanding and application oriented. In a recent survey, it was found that 75% of the students who failed in Maths in 1st Semester of Engg courses were in fact scored 90% and above in their HSC exams.
      Finally, my humble opinion is that only meritorious students should be selected for MBBS courses. This would ensure that we get quality doctors and not quacks at the end of the term.

      • dones george says:

        What is the difficulty for MCI to set the questions in regional languages too along with English? So that no student feels discrimination. It is favoring English medium over regional students. after studying their course in regional language, how within a short period of time they can write the entrance exam in English? The regional students will struggle some time during their MBBS coure and later they complete with good marks.
        Yo wanted to simply exploit the share (seats) of regional language students so that you Your competitions will get reduced.

        • dones george says:

          Don’t the English medium candidates feel discrimination, if the questions are set only in regional languages? can you accept it.
          The people who wants to impose English language in entrance exam for the students who studied their entire subjects upto 12th standard in regional languages ignoring the fact that the regional language students are majority in this country. This exploiters simply wanted to reduce the healthy competition so that they can simply loot the seats of regional students under the entarnce exam in english only.

        • Adi Narayanan says:

          Hello Dones George,
          For your information there are 1653 languages in India. Is it possible for MCI to set papers in all these languages. Like you all the other students will start asking for papers in their own mother tongue. Is it feasible???
          As per Indian Constitution, Hindi has been recognised as Official language. English being international language and the medium of language used for teaching MBBS, MCI has chosen English and Hindi for the NEET.
          In my opinion students who wish to do higher studies i.e. Degrees in English should switch over to English medium in their HSC stage itself. This would ensure that they could follow their lessons when they join their higher degree courses. Also they can take entrance exams after their HSC course. Without preparing themselves, cribbing for papers in mother tongue at the last stage is not justified. When you are prepared to struggle in MBBS why not you struggle in HSC course??? Is it right for the students to struggle in MBBS??? Can you play with the life of the people???? Think man think?????

          Finally, do you think Supreme Court judges would have ignored the language aspect??? Definitely no, they are following the practical system prevailing in the country and rules as per the constitution.

          For your fault do not blame others. You are responsible for your destiny. Given a choice everyone would like to study in their own mother tongue, however, when we have almost all professional courses taught in English, one should take the right decision of switching over to English.
          Do you think the students who took the trouble of undergoing lessons in English are all fools??? Having taken the EASY route of studying in local language, how can you say that you are being exploited??? Who’s mistake is it??? Is it yours or Who’s???

          • Dones George says:

            1. You tell me, what is the purpose of these 22 languages (tamil, malayalam, oriya, kannada, telugu, bengali, marathi, etc) mentioned under the 8th schedule of the constitution.
            2. What is the difficulty for you if the questions are set in 3 languages (language of the state, English and Hindi). For example, 7.2 crore people in Tamilnadu speaks Tamil likewise in other states.
            3. you wanted to reduce the healthy completion.
            4. You wanted to reduce the number of competitors by setting the questions only in engilsh and Hindi.
            4. will you accept (for example ) after studying in english, if the questions are set in telugu, can u understand the questions?
            5. under the garb of English and Hindi imposition, you simply wanted to loot all 40,000 MBBS seats.
            6. what is the purpose of state government then?
            7. Hindi can be made a mother language of all stataes then.

              Hello Dones,
              Pl understand MBBS is a very tough course and it is taught in Enlish in all States. If a student cant write objective type english test just before stepping into MBBS, how would you expect him to study MBBS??? All national level exams like AIPMT, AIIMS, AFMC, CMC Vellore etc are all conducted in English and Hindi (being a national official language)

              The all India exam for JIPMER entrance is conducted only in english and it also has a paper on English Knowledge. Many surveys on educational reforms suggests that one of the skills required for a successful professional is “Language Skill”. It further says that which ever language is the medium of education, that language needs to be tested at the stage of entrance to ensure that students has adequate skill on the language to learn the course effectively.

              Even IITs our premier Engg colleges conducts only in English & Hindi for several decades. So far there had not been any problem in setting the papers in English/Hindi.

              Do you think you are wiser than the Supreme Court Judge and all the panel members, students, college authorities, Ministry of Health officials & others who have designed this entrance exam.
              Well, instead of being a laughing stock on this Forum, please understand the reality and adjust your self.
              There is a famous saying ” Instead of trying to change the world, first change your self”. Well, this saying aptly fits you.

              • A. Kottavan says:

                1. I wanted to convey Adi to this forum is that there is a clear line which divides official language and national language. Hindi is a official language but not a national language.
                2. Do you know, National Talent Search Examination, MHRD is conducting exams in 13 Indian languages.
                3. Do you know, Ministry of Railway is conducting exams in 22 Indian languages.
                4. IAS main exams are allowed to write answers in 22 languages under 8th schedule of the constitution.
                5. candidate is allowed to appear interview in IAS exams in 22 Indian language.
                6. There is Sahitya awards for 22 indian languages.
                7. 22 languages are mentioned in indian rupee notes.
                Our constitution is providing as per Article 32 of the constitution Judicail Review System. Do you have no faith in the system.

    I am from Tamilnadu. The decision about NEET is a welcome one. Its a naked truth that private medical colleges are looting money from the students and yet producing sub standard doctors. The standard has stooped to such low levels that the MGR Medical University, the Apex body in Tamilnadu had awarded as much as 45 Grace marks to several hundred MBBS students to help them pass the exams. This is a big shame to the country especially when it has come to the knowledge of a British Medical Body which is questioning the wisdom of awarding grace marks to such students. Can anybody compromise on the quality of doctors??. All these can stop only if meritorious candidates get selected to MBBS courses. The Grace marks were given from 2007 onwards ever since the Tamilnadu Govt stopped the entrance exams for selecting students. States should stop abetting private medical colleges either directly or indirectly and instead in the larger interest of the society help establish fair regime to select meritorious students for medical courses. If State syllabus students want to become a doctor, they should take the additional efforts to upgrade themselves to meet the challenge. This would help them to come out as a quality doctor. When medical profession is fast becoming commercialised due to half baked doctors, we need to take right decisions at the right time to set things right.

      Dear friends,
      Kindly go through the recent advertisement of our Indian Railway. Please see the language pattern adopted by Ministry of Railways. It gives a level playing field to all sections of Indian population where no one will feel discriminated on the basis of their language. I hope that MCI will also emulate the same language pattern. I am not against official language. I wanted the rights of all language students are to be protected. So the question paper should be set in Tri-Lingual form (TLF) such as State mother language (or student’s option at the time of filling the application), Official language of India (Hindi) and English. Please don’t bluff to the people that there are 1000 languages are spoken in India, so it is not possible for MCI to set the question papers in all regional languages.

    Sir,
    can u kindly inform from which year does the NEET-UG exam held?please confirm me.
    It’s in 2012 or in 2013?

  50. Dr.Manish Mehta says:

    With due respect to the decision for common medical entrance test
    by M.C.I. , M.C.I. should think of all India students before deciding about the syllabus and the medium of the entrance examination and M.C.I. should not think only about C.B.S.E.board students.

  51. Ajay says:

    Sir, NCERT should focus on syllabus which promotes learning and not rote learning. We want Doctors not parrots in this country.

  52. snigdha says:

    its just not fair on part of mci to announce the neet xam for the year 2012 ….we have been trained only for the state entrance xams n announcing a common set at this point of tym is just not right ….

  53. Disha Sahu says:

    It is injustice to the student those who do not read phy. chem and bio. in hindi orenglish medium.Human anatomy and functions are not included in Sullabus for NEET.

  54. saishashank ch. says:

    Iam at present studying in 12th standard / intermediate 2nd year.its a very good decision but i want to know the exam is starting from our batch or next,which makes me a lot of confusion and could not concentrate on my studies.so plz tell me as fast as possible.thank u.

  55. jayanthi says:

    from when is the neet test is it for this academic year or on 2013

  56. Srikanth says:

    Hi all, its official common medical entrance test is approved by supreme court http://blog.careermitra.com/2011/07/common-medical-entrance-test-approved/

  57. anna says:

    MCI should really reduce physics cource, physics is not important for a medical student….it’s a really good decision by mci …but course should be reduced….

  58. preeti says:

    mci should reduce physics portion because a medical student don’t have much applications of physics………….and instead of reservations they should allot ranks according to the marks obtained………….

  59. arnab says:

    all the guys appreciating this decision are surely from cities…but is anyone here who is thinking for the students of rural area?there are lakhs of students who do not know either english or hindi..how shall they appear at the exam??but are not they capable to be a good doctor??students from developed areas,students of cbse,icse boards will get huge benefit from this.but there are lakhs of students frome other boards.the total distribution of doctors will be affected from this.so,i think mci should conduct one test for all central ones and mci should not uproot the state entrances..

    mci is doing fun with student via removing human anatomy and physiology from common sylb. ncert want to remove the stress of students than remove physics from sylb.
    without human anatomy no medical entrace
    all student must oppose this

    • navjot sharma says:

      yes, very much write ..how can medical aspirants be judjed on the basis of phy, chem n botany…they gonna become doctors so human physiology n anatomy must be an imp part..moreovr engineering aspirants are never asked to give biology exam for getting admission in IITs..this is really injustice with us..really

  61. B.Harish says:

    ITS a good decision by the MCI, but the syllabus in andhrapradesh is different from Ncert SYLLABUS.so plz kindly sent me the syllabus as fast as possible. thank u.

  62. Arun jindal says:

    Really its very good decision

  63. Asim Ahmad says:

    This is a good move.But the test conducted by CBSE must be of international standard which would benefit the good students only & not rote learners. Care must be taken to increase the standard of esp. Biology as currently the syllabus as well as AIPMT paper and all other entrance tests require only rote learning but instead many insighful questions from Bio may be framed at +2 level too. I hv myself cleared AIPMT 2011 with 713 rank.

  64. rajathilagam says:

    This is good decision, because most of the student from some institute getting shot-get method for scoring 200/200 but they did’t have sufficient knowledge but they easy to join medical. But this method real talent student must select for medical college, They only become a good doctors.

  65. awdhesh gupta says:

    this year of my last chance of life to beat pmt.at right time mci indirectly help all student through comon pmt intrance.

    THIs is vry-vry desired design of MCI.A gift for a student by supreme court.

  67. pghosh says:

    This is a very welcome move by MCI and Supreme court and they should not listen to any objections from any quarter esp from Karnataka,maharastra,orissa and T.Nadu where pvt medical colleges are fleecing students and minting money and churning out substandard Doctors.

    • ARUN KUMAR P says:

      really it’s very good decision

      • u.k.ebrahim kutty says:

        the decision of mci to conduct the common entrance test on all india level is appreciated. at the same mci is hoped to take urgent measures to admit the students to self financig colleges only from the mci entrance exam list. also mci should strongly interfere to see that these institutions are properly admitting 50% students on merit basis charging only the govt fee.

        • prajnya samantaray says:
