MCI was given green signal by the Apex Court on Monday to conduct Common Medical Entrance Test, the test will be called as ‘National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET)’. Earlier we had reported about the proposal made and also disclosed the syllabus for core subjects (Physics, Chemistry & Biology).
NEET will be conducted by CBSE and the syllabus is prepared by NCERT (National Council of Education Research and Training). Students have concerns about the advantage the central syllabus school students has against students who appeared for state board examination during the secondary and higher secondary school.
Many students are in favor of the Common Entrance Test for medical college admissions and few feel separate entrance tests for each state as a better option.Few readers has said the syllabus for Physics is too harsh.
The Medical Council of India is seeking public opinion about the syllabus, you can mail your views to (firstname.lastname@example.org) till August 11.
We love to read your opinion here, is the syllabus fair? should common entrance test be conducted scrapping all other medical entrance exams or not?

Earlier we had an interesting comment from Dr. Rakesh Kumar, read the below lines (in his words):
The common entrance is a much needed and long overdue reform of the medical education system. currently the medical admissions consist primarily of “rich Daddy quota” seats wherein the highest bidder gets the seat .. securing admissions has very little to do with the capabilities of the candidate and more to do with the capabilities of the candidates parents paying ability..thus throwing up incompetent Doctors. this has to STOP.
A common entrance if conducted using the latest technology will prevent paper leakages and compel the private colleges and deemed universities to admit based on merit. as long as the state quotas and constitutionally mandated reservations are not disturbed i don’t think it will cause any problems. as for the apprehension about change in pattern the new core syllabus being notified in advance will help mitigate the inconvenience. since the change will be new for all students it will not be of unfair advantage / disadvantage to anybody. it is about time India adopted a clean and corruption free merit based examination system for both undergraduate and post graduate medical admissions.
