Students Await for MCI Decision on NEET-UG

Aspiring medical students await for decision from Medical Council of India (MCI) w.r.t NEET-UG, National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for Undergraduates or Common Entrance Test (CET) will be the only entrance test an aspiring medical student has to take for admissions into government, private and deemed medical colleges in India.

Earlier MCI’s decision was opposed by few state governments but was backed by the Supreme Court, speculations are all around about whether MCI will hold NEET-UG in the next academic year or will it postpone to 2013? If NEET-UG is held what will be the revised reservation under State quota for students of their home States. Question paper pattern and final syllabus for the common entrance test are few questions that left unanswered.

Mean while State governments have expressed their dissatisfaction on MCI & CBSE. Sushanta Bannerjee, Director (Medical Education) of  West Bengal reportedly said the government of West Bengal will oppose the MCI’s move and force for bilingual question paper in English and Bengali and also stress for reservation for State based Students.

MCI has officially announced about NEET-PG an entrance test for MD / MS / Diploma courses, the announcement can be read from here. Students are hoping for a quick decision and answers from MCI soon, unlike engineering entrance examination, medical entrance test require more time for preparation and students face cut throat competition for seats in medical colleges.

Its high time MCI needs to break the silence! So what are your views?

    Without manipulations by the state authorities all the Govt medical seats in respective states for all of us are wide open.
    Best of luck for all the genuine candidates.
    MCI go ahead…….. and make sure that UG fate is not the same as PG fate for all of us.
    Jai Hind.

      • Hai friend,
        I support you your sugestion.
        Yesterday when i spoke with my friends about NEET-UG, they all are worried about NEET-UG exam & tells…..If it was our State PMT, we could have got the Question paper sets from the coaching centre out of which 60-70% questions will be there for the final exam . You should note that, that particular question paper set will not be made available to all students in the same institute.
        Now dear friends think it over ………………I strongly believe that there are no shortage of brain power in our country.
        There should not be exemption from NEET-UG for any of the states wef 2012, It should be compulsory for all the states.

        Jai Hind

  4. why any body is not doing rti or pil against mci for delaying the final decision ?? where is the student parents association??please clear the picture…

  5. hi all

    rumour is there that AIPMT forms are also avaible from mid november

  6. I THINK MCI SHOULD CONDUCT NEET IN 2012 ITSELF, & THE SYALLBUS SHOULD BE THE ONE PROPOSED BY MCI.
    PLEASE CONDUCT IT IN 2012

    • there is a limit of everything…….its a matter of shame for the authorities that they r showing so much mismanagement & delay in such an important matter . till now, they have finalized nothing……..they r troubling students by doing this & nothing more than that..

      • Varsha,
        This is India yaar….!!!!
        I feel NEET-UG fate going to be the NEET-PG fate in the next accademic year.
        But prepare well to face the Old/new version.
        Bye…

        • WHY (Y) Das……YOU TOO DAS???????
          You were NEET 2012 supporter. Is it that somebody has stolen your identity. You cant change upside down like this in a jiffy. I hav serious doubts abt your posting.

          Pl believe, NEET UG is sure to be a reality in 2012. No one can stop this.

          • Hai Ramesh,

            I fully support NEET-UG wef 2012.
            But after long wait & frustation I wrote the above statement.

            Thanks for the support given.
            Jai hind

            • MCI is ready to release notification, but its getting delayed for making final adjustments in view of some objections from State. In any case, it cannot delay beyond Nov 15.
              So, dont worry, you have been a die hard campaigner of NEET 2012 from the beginning and be assured that it will happen in 2012.
              Wish you All the best!!!!

          • hi ramesh….ur cmnt gav a smile on my face …..actualy its not DAS’s fault that he is doubting about NEET ….the situation is like that k every student has got his/her mindset messed up…..no idea about anything…..hehehee…so plz dont doubt him about his support for NEET…..uske ya hamare support karne se kya hoga yr jab authorities hi nahi manengi……

    • guys i have heard that MCI has decided to make few changes in syllabus n final syllabus will be released in second week of november..

  7. Admission notice for MBBS in 2012 for unaided (Pvt) medical colleges in UP has come today in delhi edition of times of India. Date of exam 30 May 2012. Does it mean no neet for Pvt medical colleges ??

    • Hi Varsha Sharma, Officially MCI hasn’t said anything about NEET but through genuine sources we got some information, NEET UG will be from May 13 2012 and NEET PG will be in 2013. Read post.

  8. What the hell is going on… What is mci doing??? Sitting at home or what.. Its been 3 months since the draft syllabus comments we submitted on its website. I don’t think they need more time to discuss upon the syllabus at least. If it’s not in their hand, then conduct it next year! You guys have to conduct it this yr as well as not post any notification regarding it when it’s almost end of October ! What do u think of us pmt students working 14 hrs a day.. ??? A piece a cake huh??
    This is when we realize it’s INdia! ND all the government managed things are as clumsy as they can be!

  9. MCI should publish their decision immediately. Otherwise the students will suffer for which MCI as well as Govt. is liable.

  10. wt d hell is going on!!!!!!!!!!! mci is nt cnfusing us bt its irritating us nw. vl mci tell us its final dicison about ITS NEET or AIPMT?????

    • MCI Should announce its decision in no time,other wise we have to suffer the worst.I am surprised why Govt.is not taking any initiative.

  11. after so much discussions n all….still no result of this issue!!!….whatever be the pattern but it should be clear till now…we students are highly confused related to syllabus than the exam dates..atleast make this thing clear that whether we study the new core syllabus for neet or follow our last year’s trend???…..such a vast portion of human physiology is removed frm core syllabus…n nw its the end of october…..we need proper mind makeup to complete our syllabus…so its a request please atleast guide for what to study n what not???

  12. Hello Pals,
    Some news to cheer for NEET supporters. The Dental Council of India has announced that it would be part of NEET from 2012. Pl check this link:-
    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/ahmedabad/Common-entrance-test-for-medical-dental-admissions/articleshow/10359643.cms

    Another news is that State of Gujarat as decided to join NEET from 2012 subject to Gujrati is included as language option. This is a major shift considering that Gujarat has been opposing NEET from the beginning.
    Cheers Guys….!!!!!!

  13. ohhhhhhhh goodddd………i read all the comments som r in favour of NEET some r opposing it…som r talking about corruption & less seats (including me)…….the main point vch comes out to b is v cant do anything just 1 thing that is STUDY…..jo test hona hai, kaise hona hai, kab hona hai.jaldi batao yr……tension khatm karo….

  14. Hi Guys,
    The medical admission scam in Karnataka is assuming wider ramifications, pl see this report in Deccan Chronicle
    http://www.deccanchronicle.com/node/63331

    As many as 120 Munna Bhais have got themselves admitted by paying huge sums. I still feel ‘Its the tip of ICEBERG’, if CBI is pressed into investigation, perhaps more scams would be unearthed. In the preliminary investigation itself, it has been found that 120 Genuine Candidates have lost their hard earned seats. I wonder how many such scams are happening in different State CETs. Its a big shame to our country.
    Central Govt, MCI & State Govts should combine and bring about absolutely transparent admission system through NEET from 2012 itself and save millions of lives in our country.

  15. HELLO AGAIN TO EVERYONE

    WE ALL HERE WANT A FAIR EXAM TO BE CONDUCTED. OUR GOALS ARE SAME JUST METHODS ARE DIFFERENT SO WHY TO FIGHT. LET ME START IT FIRST. I APOLOGISE TO U RAMESH IF I HAVE SAID ANYTHING BAD TO U. I JUST LOST MY TEMPER AFTER READING YOUR LAST POST IN WHICH U COMPARED US TO DOGS.

    TO ALL NEET SUPPORTING STUDENTS

    ALL OF U HAVE BEEN OPPOSING MY POINTS BY TALKING ABOUT CORRUPTION. BUT PEOPLE THE WAY THINGA GO IN INDIA NEET WILL ALSO GET CORRUPTED(LOOK AT AIEEE). IT IS NOT THE SOLUTION. THEN GOVT. WILL BRING ANOTHER CHANGE . INSTEAD PUT MORE SECURITY AT AIPMT STATE LEVEL.

    I ALSO GET FRUSTRATED WHEN I HEAR ABOUT FALSE ADMISSIONS BEING MADE IN PVT. UNIVERSITIES. BUT BRINGING THEM UNDER AIPMT IS SAME AS BRINGING THEM UNDER NEET. BRING THESE EXAMS UNDER RTI AND LOKPAL BILL SO THAT THEY BECOME MORE TRANSPARENT.

    STEPS LIKE
    a. Percentile system in evaluation.
    b. It is thinking of lowering the minimum eligibility
    c. Negative marking is being withdrawn.
    IF THESE CHANGES ARE IN UNDER AIPMT AND STATE PMT THEN ALSO IT WILL BENEFIT TO EVERYONE.

    I HERE SUPPORT ONLY TWO EXAMS AIPMT( WITH PVT. COLLEGES IN IT) AND STATE PMT. THIS WILL SOLVE THE PROB;EM OF MANY EXAMS.

    PEOPLE, NEET IN 2012 WILL CAUSE PROBLEM TO MANY BUT THE WAY I’AM SAYING IT , IT WILL BE BENEFICIAL TO ALL.

    • according to me , there should b a single test ….state PMT’s hav most of the corruption & ther r very few seats in som states & som othrs hav very high. let us see an exampl of haryana state there r only 200 seats & 2 medical coleges wher as the states like west bengal & punjab hav mor no. of med coleges & seats r mor then 1100…………isnt it a partiality……??,this is unfare evry1 shud get equal opportunity …i think a common entranc including even AIIMS shud b held..

      • Hi VARSHA
        I’am from himachal which also has 2 colleges . So i can very well understand your problem. But since the 85% reservation for state students remain , it hardly matters as we will get to compete on same no. of seats as aipmt provides.
        DON’T U THINK ITS A BIT LATE NOW FOR NEET ANNOUNCEMENT.

        • HI RAJPUt,
          LESS NO. OF MEDICAL COLLEGES IS NOT A BIG PROBLEM….BUT THE MAIN PROBLEM HERE IN HARYANA IS THAT THE AUTHORITIES INVOLVED IN ORGANISING THE XM R SO IRRESPONSIBLE & FAULTY……seats r sold so frequently here u cant imagine…..& v people think that k hamari koi mistake ya kami reh gayi hogi……..less seats can b tolerated but such kind of cheatings r not tolerable….i think NEET can giv sm relief in this case….thats it

    • I dont think neet will cause problems.
      The syllabus is purely NCERT and it has been prepared according to all state syllabi.
      It will finish all problems
      Earlier we had to prepare for different exams with different syllabi , wasd it easy?
      huh!

      • i think u r right karthikeya.
        and MCI should consider the time and they should change syllabus according to time left with main points required for future courses right?
        and my opinion is to implement NEET exam from this academic year itself.

    • i also oppose the neet in 2012 because this academic year is already over upto half and new exam pattern should be declared at begining of year how can any one will prepare 2 years(11th and 12th) in remaining 5 to 6 months. Many parents and collages also filed case against NEET UG . I do not hope it will this year

  16. hey guys i’am actually surprised to see so many supporters of neet. Actually where I live there are many who dont’t support it in 2012. IT SHOULD TAKE PLACE IN 2013.
    My question is “WHY IS IT NEEDED?”
    People say that it will bring transparency in selection of students in private medical college. I agree with it . but if this is the case then instead of making one exam bring private medical colleges under aipmt and increase the seats in aipmt. WHY DO WE HAVE TO BRING ALL STATE PMT UNDER ONE EXAM and cause trouble for our brothers and sisters in state board schools. If corruption takes place in state pmts then it can take place in neet also as both are run by the govt. .
    Secondly if 85% students will be taken from state only then why the hell is it taking place. whats the use of it if no. of seats remain the same.
    My third point is that it is already october , we have started preparing for pre boards. W hen will we prepare for the changed syllabus.
    lets face the facts guys that india is a diverse countru and that right now it is not ready for a common entrance test . We cannot compare chattisgarh and jharkhand with kerala or maharashtra.
    Many are saying its a rich daddy qouta in medical. but if neet takes place then it will be again it will a rich daddy quota because only rich people will be able to provide quality education to compete at all india level. india is not a develop country to have a common entrance test .We should first make the level of education same and then talk of common tests.
    instead of making it a common test bring private medical colleges under government security.
    TO ALL THOSE SUPPORTING IT RIGHT NOW DON’T BE SELFISH AND THINK OF EVERYBODY RATHER THAN C.B.S.E . STUDENTS.
    I’AM MYSELF A C.B.S.E. STUDENT.
    HEY SAM IA SUPPORT YOU .KEEP COMMENTING.
    IF ANYONE HAS A PROBLEM WITH WHAT I’AM SAYING THEN DO REPLY(ESPECIALLY RAMESH AND SRIKANTH SIR).
    ALSO ONE MORE THING , THERE ARE MANY WHO STILL DON”T USE INTERNET IN INDIA THEREFORE MCI DID NOT RECEIVE MUCH OPPOSITION TO IT.

    • You mean let the medical institutes be allowed to force parents to spend Rupees 300000 * 25000 = Rupees 7500000000/=(750 crore)like last year.

      • Number of students x {(Average Expenditure on prospectus + exam fee)+average expenditure on travelling and boarding)}

        i.e. 300000 X {(1000 + 1000) + 500)}

        This was in 2011. In 2012, this may become 300000 X 5500. Girl students may get a fee exemption like IIT and the burden of exemption will be slapped on Boys students.

        So, the number of seats will remain same. No matters, there is a NEET or AIPMT. The number of students selected to undergo UG(Medical) course will remain same. The students(around 250000) who will not be selected will repent on the unnecessary expenditure incurred by them on filling up entrance forms of various medical colleges like MGIMS,AMUPMDC,CMC,Manipal,DY Patil, DattaMeghe, BLDE, COMED-K,KLE,UAPMT,AIIMS,JIPMER and of so many colleges.

        Therefore, it is the need of time to have a common entrance exam. Besides peace of mind it has many benefits.

        bye-bye

        • well mukesh
          what if only two exams are present —- aipmt and state pmt.
          the universities u mentioned are being brought under neet. if we bring them under aipmt and leave state separate like gamer has been saying———— that actually solves your problem.

        • No, The number of medical colleges and the number of seats are not in proportion of population of a particular state. Therefore students from small states do not get a fair chance of competition. Moreover, the process of conducting of state PMTs is just eyewash; And so is about the prestigious institutes of AIIMS and JIPMER and so many. But I do not say that things will become all right with setting up of NEET. Corruption is in our genes and we cannot get rig of this malice. Hope NEET will have a remedy for it. All the best.

          • MUKESH,to which state do u belong to???????
            I’am from himachal which has only two colleges. But i feel it is sufficient for homachal. Small states means less no. of applicants.
            MUKESH, TRY TO UNDERSTAND, that aipmt or state or neet , it hardly matters , but we will atleast get two chances to get a seat through aipmt or state pmt.

            • Dear Rajput students from your own states do not get enough chance in your state. So the number of students of Himachal Pradesh who are undergoing UG(Medical) course outside their state is more than the students studying in their own state. Not only this, there are states where Govt medical colleges are in great number like W.B., Gujarat, Maharashtra etc. Students from these states complete their UG degree without spending much money.
              It is not a right practice to have two chances to get a seat through aipmt or state pmt. There will be same students who will be selected in both the tests and thus there is hardly any possibility for students in waiting list getting a fair chance of finding a seat through aipmt or state pmt. So what is the remedy? Yes, there is a remedy. The govt should own the burden of fee charged by the private colleges so that their fees are subsidized so that all selected students can pursue for their medical course.

              I recommend for a NEET from 2012 at the same time I also suggest govt agencies to take some burden of private medical colleges so that their fees are also reduced.

              All the best.

              • Mukesh, I agree with you fully.
                Till such time Govt opens sufficient Govt colleges, it can at least subsidise economically weaker students to study in private medical colleges. Hence, MCI and Govt of India should bring 75% seats of Pvt colleges under the ambit of common counselling of NEET. This way the no of seats open for poor, rural, economically challenged students would be more. Students from States having less no of Govt colleges would also get benefitted.

                We see lot of seats either go waste or lapsed due to several students who get selected in both State CET & AIPMT keep their choice open till last moment. Some of the unfilled seats gives way for back door entry for admitting undeserving candidates for exchange of huge money.

  17. vat the hell is going on ? evryday v r listening to difrent difrnt news about medical entranc……this is doing nothing but just confusing us…..can sombody plz tel vat is actualy going on …..7 vat vud b the final decisn.? its irritating now …..v cant wait mor…..plz……authoritis break the silenc & tel vatz gona hapen??

  18. we all students got very confused between neet and state level exams, plz can anyone tell me wat will be held in 2012, either neet or state exams.so we can prepare for the exams .

  19. Hi Harini,
    Here is the need why NEET has to be conducted and implemented immdly.

    Pl read the news below reported today on DECCAN HERALD. If such malpractices and irregularities has to stop, then a transparent and stringent medical entrance test has to be conducted. The test should have Biometric identification system to eliminate impersonation. This also underlines the importance to bring up a national test like NEET immdly in 2012. MCI should take adequate safe guards to ensure that there are no more “MUNNA BHAIs” practicing as Doctors, putting life of people at stake.
    =======================================================================
    Medical colleges in proxy sleaze
    Shivakant Menon, Bangalore, Oct 2, DHNS:

    The City Crime Branch (CCB) of police has unearthed a medical seat selling scam at the City’s Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) said to involve nearly Rs 300 crore and arrested the president of the Vokkaligara Sangha and some others.

    Reputed doctors and medical professors are in the dock for allegedly selling hundreds of medical seats.

    Sources told Deccan Herald Kenchappa Gowda, president, Vokkaligara Sangha, who manages KIMS, Rafat Malik, Ibrahim Pasha, Farooq, Mallesh (alias) Malli, Noushad and Vijay Sampangiram have been in the custody of CCB for the last two days. Also arrested was the infamous ‘don’ of Shivajinagar area, Iftiyaz Phailwan.

    Explaining the modus operandi, sources said the process of selling seats in medical colleges to students involved two steps. Agents working from an office a prestigious commercial office complex on MG Road collected Rs 5 lakh from students who pursue their ambitions to become doctors without being eligible to attend CET exams. The agents arrange for proxies, who are doctors, to the write the exams for the aspiring students and enable them to get ranking below 150 in the final CET results.

    At this stage, the agents along with the knowledge of medical college management officials sent ‘jackies’ to collect from the students money required to ‘buy’ the seat in the respective medical college.

    From MBBS to MD, the rates vary, depending on the Common Entrance Test ranking also and range between Rs 40 to Rs 50 lakh.

    For higher level courses and better colleges, the charges go as high as Rs one crore.

    Apparently, the colleges involved in the racket were not restricted to the City, or for
    An officer of the City Crime Branch said: “The market scene of selling seats run to the top of all medical colleges with officials from All India Institute of Medical Sciences being involved. There are only a handful of medical colleges within the state, be it government or private which are clean.”

    The City Crime Branch conducted enquiries on Thursday and produced the people under custody before the magistrate at his residence on Saturday.

    The case will be brought up before Judge Venkatesh Hulagi on Monday.

    • Hai Thennavan,

      I feel in India for getting a medical seat for a genuine candidate is near to impossible if such old system of Question paper leakage & selling of medical seats with the involvement of high profile individuals are allowed to continue.
      Let us all together welcome NEET-UG to happen in the comming accademic year onwards for all the dreaming genuine candidates, otherwise genuine candidates will be dreaming only till NEET UG happens & others will take away the seats by paying.

      • Hi Das,
        In the light of this news, I think we should bring even AIIMS under NEET. CBI should be asked to investigate this case and book all the concerned officials involved in this scam. The entire system is stinking and I feel so disgusted about the whole episode and all those corrupt persons creating this mess.
        Gosh!! Even God would find difficult to live with us!!!!!

        • Hai Thennavan,

          Yes I support your opinion, there should only be one entrance exam for all the medical Colleges in India including AIIMS,AFMC,JIPMER etc under NEET with Question papers in Hindi & English only.

  20. then what’s the need of conducting NEET we have to prepare again for AIIMS, AFMC, neet is an all india entrance test then why r they excluding
    those institute exams

    • aiims and jipmer are meant only for high profile personalities. Merely being extra ordinary in Knowledge and in studies will not assure a seat in these two institutes.

  21. Is NCERT preparing the syllabus for NEET UG? I have heared that the govt. is still looking into the preparation of syllabus. Is there any negative marking in the pattern of exam?

  22. Neet is will be in 2012 pls read this news from times ofindia

    BHUBANESWAR: Medical students preparing for Orissa Joint Entrance Examination (OJEE) need to re-plan their schedule, as the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET), tentatively scheduled for May 13, will replace OJEE for admission into undergraduate medical courses in the state in 2012.

    “I can now confirm that there will be no entrance at the state level for undergraduate medical courses next time. Students will be drawn from the NEET merit list for all medical colleges,” said Dr Sitaram Mahapatra, joint director of medical education and training. For other professional courses such as engineering, MBA and MCA, the OJEE will continue as it stands, he said.

    Dr Mahapatra, who represented Orissa at a meeting to finalise NEET at New Delhi on September 23, said NEET will draw separate merit lists for each state from among the state domiciles, keeping in mind various reservations for 85% seats in medical colleges. For the rest 15% seats and Union government colleges, which are filled up from the all-India quota, an all-India merit list will be drawn.

    OJEE authorities will conduct counseling for the 85% seats from among the state merit list, while a centralized counselling will be drawn for the 15% seats from the all-India merit list in New Delhi.

    Dr Mahapatra, who is also the OJEE vice-chairman, said the Indian Medical Council and Central Board of Secondary Education will work on a percentile system to ensure that each state merit list comprises sufficient students from their respective domicile to fill up their seats. “It was our biggest concern because we thought enough students from our state may not qualify the all-India test,” Dr Mahapatra said.

    MCI will also work on a uniform syllabus and model question papers for the test. NEET will have 180 questions, comprising 45 each from physics, chemistry, botany and zoology. The test will be of 180 minutes duration with centres in all district headquarters, Dr Mahapatra said.

    Applications, both online and offline, for NEET will tentatively start in the second week of December and will continue till second week of January. Students would receive their admit cards by second week of April. After the test on May 13, results will be published in June 2012, the OJEE vice-chairman said.

    Dr Mahapatra said the state government has requested the Central government to make it mandatory for students of other states, who will take admission for the 15% seats, to give an undertaking that they will serve in rural areas of the state for two years. There is already such a system for students of state domicile

    This is one more confirmation that NEET is really on in 2012. Guys pl note and start preparing for the test coming up in May 2012.

    • Hai Dinesh Kumar,
      Thanks Dinesh.
      Great information which I was waiting for,if it is so.
      Hai Guys now let us start preparing for NEET(UG)2012 with full swing, 08 months enough time left.
      Good news for all genuine meritorious medical aspirants.

  24. Mr vijay m kiri do have any answers for students in tamil nadu where schools take bribe from students to increase their marks to get a seat in medical college. Now here… are not the meritorious financially weak students suffering. The rich ones are straight away taking out the question paper before exams. Btw the syllabus is not of that much difference that a good meritorious student won’t qualify. Btw what is the meaning of competition if u want everyone at level and that everyone who sit for exam qualify. I firmly believe your comments show personal benefits & nothing at all.

    • Hai John,
      I strongly support your views,
      U have oppenly come with what is happenning in different states.
      Hats off to u.
      I want Neet this year.

      • Hi John,
        I fully agree with you. In Tamilnadu, 63 applicants were caught in 2010 for claiming MBBS admissions through Bogus mark sheets. The gang which did this malpractice was doing this for years. I wonder how many such bogus doctors went scot free, as the Govt apparently took action only on those 63 applicants.
        In Delhi in DUMET there was question paper leakage, b’coz of which several undeserving candidates benefited.
        These instances are all tip of the iceberg, I wonder how many such incidences have gone unnoticed. B’coz of such malpractices, thousands of genuine, deserving students suffer year after year. Our Mr Vijay Kiri is not bothered about these incidents, but only thinks about his own self. He expects Indian Govt to hand him a invitation on a platter to write the exam 10 years in advance. He is apparently unaware that the proposal for NEET has come up in 2010 itself and was planned for implementation in 2011. However, it was postponed b’coz of politics played by Tamilnadu politicians.Now the situation is different and I wish NEET gets implemented in 2012 without any hiccups.

        • Hi Mr.Anil,

          In fact I would not have replied your most illogical,irrational and impractical comment addressed to Mr.John had you not mentioned my name in it.
          It is evident that you are not aware of reason of NEET not happening in 2011.For your information it was not held as the time available to conduct the test was not sufficient after supreme court gave green signal.And my dear thats what i am saying that they had all the time to announce through boards and colleges in March 2011 itself .I do not expect an invitation on silver platter 10 years in advance.I do not think that expecting one year advance notice with proper syllabus is crime in our country.
          Secondly it is not only the time available for preparing for 2012 NEET is worrying factor but it is uncertainty and conflicting reports that takes its toll at this juncture when one should be only preparing WITH 100% CONCENTRATION.
          As regards your comment of my thinking of ownself,pl go through my reply to Mr.John.
          Lastly I sincerely wish MCI ANNOUNCES THE SYLLABUS IMMEDIETELY THRU.BOARDS AND COLLEGES AND NEET GETS IMPLEMENTED IN 2013(Here also I am not asking 10 years!!!!!!!!and believe me i am not thinking of myself alone!!!!!)

          • Mr Vijay,
            It is quite apparent, you are ignorant of many events. The primary reason for calling off 2011 NEET is for the following reason: Pl read the PRESS report:
            ======================================================
            Politics trips Medical Council of India’s common entrance test
            Published: Thursday, Jan 6, 2011, 3:32 IST
            By Vineeta Pandey | Place: New Delhi | Agency: DNA

            Political compulsions have forced the Union health and family welfare ministry to shoot down a Medical Council of India (MCI) notification introducing a common entrance test for admission to undergraduate and post-graduate medical courses from the 2011-12 academic year.

            The notification issued on December 21 and published in the gazette amends the admission procedure and eligibility criteria. It abolishes the present system of various boards and institutions conducting separate entrance tests for admission to the country’s 138 government and 133 private medical colleges and replaces it with a single national eligibility-cum-entrance test (Neet).

            The ministry has struck down the notification after granting it “in-principle” nod. The official reason is that Union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad wants to OK Neet through a consensus at a state health ministers’ conference in Hyderabad next week and issue a fresh notification. That MCI’s act was due to “ignorance of government procedures” and in any such matter the government has the final say.

            But sources said the fact was that the health ministry developed cold feet following protests by states such as Tamil Nadu which have a high number of private medical colleges.

            Tamil Nadu chief minister M Karunanidhi’s DMK, which is a key ally of the UPA government at the Centre, is strongly opposed to the MCI proposal. In a letter sent to Azad last Monday, Karunanidhi had said he was “astonished” by the notification and his government “would strongly protest this move”.

            The chief minister said a common entrance examination would mean interfering “with the rights of the state government in administering the education system”, besides creating problems in Tamil Nadu’s reservation policy.

            He said: “A confusing situation in the admission of students for post-graduate courses would prevail in the country. This will also create problems in the reservation policy which varies from state to state.”

            Azad, who is in-charge of Congress in Tamil Nadu, apparently could not take a chance but heed Karunanidhi, given that assembly elections are due in the state in the next few months.

            So, for now, the old system stays.
            ========================================================
            This a typical example of political game happening in this country for obvious reasons.Hope you are clear now.

            Secondly, there is abundant time left for preparing for the exams. But, if you still feel you dont have time, then you can take all the time in the world and write in subsequent years. For your inconvenience, other students like me should not suffer. We all want NEET in 2012.

            Thirdly, as I told you, MCI proposal is up in the media since 2010 and hence it is a sufficiently advanced intimation for one to prepare. Like how we have been gearing up to face NEET.

            fourthly, the uncertainty is in the minds of weak and shaky people, who are looking out for lame excuses to postpone NEET. Probably you are one among them.

            Finally, dont expect any change in syllabus. NEET will happen with the same syallabus what was announced already.

            • Hi Anil,

              When all this Politics & Money power will stop ?
              When all our generation will realize these facts?
              Students going to Medical collages without writing entrance exams should stop.
              With money getting Qns paper & writing

            • Hi Anil,

              Following news item which was published later than the one cited by you will hopefully prove my point of view.
              Tribune :: 20 March 2011

              Common medical entrance test unlikely this year

              Aditi Tondon/TNS

              New Delhi, March 19: A week after the Supreme Court gave the go-ahead to the Medical Council of India (MCI) to conduct a common entrance test for admission to 299 medical colleges, the MCI remains unprepared to break new ground this year.

              After trying its best to work out ways for holding the test, the council’s board of governors (BoG) has almost decided to advance the task until the next year. The All-India PMT of the CBSE is already scheduled for April 3 and the test papers are ready.

              “We met many stakeholders to see if someone could conduct the test for us. The CBSE also expressed its inability considering close to four lakh students take the test annually. We will tell the Supreme Court that we can hold the test next year. Had it been conducted this year, it would have covered the medical colleges of the entire country, except Tamil Nadu that has opted out. But if it continues to stay out, we can’t guarantee the future of the students passing out of medical colleges in the state. Obviously those who don’t come through the common test system would face difficulties as regards MCI recognition,” Dr Ranjit Roy Choudhary, member of the MCI BoG told The Tribune today.

              The MCI said whenever a CET system would come into being, every state would be allocated a quota. “Till now, there is no system of ensuring that students enter the medical colleges on merit. Anyone who can pay for the seat gets it. But a CET will ensure the predominance of merit in medicine in India. States can continue to choose their own students but those students must have figured in the CET merit list. If a certain state is unable to find enough meritorious students to fill its quota, we will not take that quota away. It will continue to exist till a deserving student gets in,” Choudhary explained.

              Except for a defined number of management quota seats in the private colleges, all other seats would have to be filled through merit once a common exam system gets consolidated. This would end the current crisis of lack of quality medical graduates.

              ————————————————————————I dont think you have any right to call anybody weak and and shaky.Let time decide it!!!!

              • Mr Vijay,
                This is all political game. You dont seem to understand. Even Supreme Court had openly commented saying ” Such tricks are being played on these students year after year”, which means the political bosses and the officials under them are taking us (students) for a ride.

                This is the reason precisely why, we students want this NEET to happen immediately without any further postponement.
                Well, lets keep our fingers crossed and see whether the students call is answered by these politicians and officials next year.

                  • MrVijay,
                    I am already aware that MCI is headed by BoG. Now, I’ll tell you what you don’t know. The MCI’s present BoGs were hand picked by Central Govt (Ministry of Health & family welfare headed by Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad). The deciding authority is the Minister himself and under him the Health Secretary and the BoG functions. The Minister has to function under the Prime Minister, who in turn is controlled by the Congress party headed by Shri Soniaji. The Congress party has to balance its act according to its partners in the UPA alliance. This is how the Govt is controlled by the political parties in our country.

                    • Hi Mr.Anil,

                      You had guessed me wrong. I am not guessing now but I am confident that you are not a student.

                      Anyway,then from what you are saying we are back to square one!!.Because various states like Gujrat,Karnataka,Bihar etc.are controlled by opposition parties.

    • Hi John,

      I fully sympathise with students of Tamilnadu state which any way has refused to join NEET irrespective of when it is held.I need not be told meaning of competition and levels etc..I pity at your level of understanding my comments.I definitely have interest in my mind of the state board students who have been caught unaware after studying a perticular syllabus for almost one year now to be told (that also is still not clear)to read different syllabus.Btw where did you find personal benifit in my comments?and what benifit do i get?.Btw how can you claim so confidently that “syllabus is not of that much difference”.Btw can you tell me with which board’s syllabus you have compared NEET’S core syllabus(which is still to be finalised as 1970 responses are being critically analysed)to come to such a conclusion.Pl do not write comments for the sake of writting.

      • Hello Mr Vijay,
        Responses from only 1970 is the ample proof that the syllabus announced is agreeable to majority of students. There are 10 lakhs estimated prospective students, assuming just 10% of those students had gone through the proposed syllabus, even then the figure of 1970 which is only 2% is a minuscule figure to consider. Among this 1970 there could be several feedbacks which could have carried “appreciating” messages.
        I hope you are one among those 1970 and the count is so little, NCERT may ignore & go ahead adopting its syllabus without any changes. People like you are searching for lame excuses to create barriers and stumbling blocks to avoid NEET. With so much advanced intimation, if you still cant write exam in 2012, you can always choose to write in 2013,2014,2015 …..whenever you are ready. But dont stop us, b’coz we are getting ready to write it in 2012. We all want NEET at the earliest i.e. in 2012.

        • Hi Anil,
          I support You.
          Let us all come together & ask for NEET to happen in the next accademic year.
          Those who are not ready now to write neet in 2012 start the preperation now & I am sure all genuine meritorious medical aspirants can crack the exam.

        • Hi Anil,
          If you feel that receipt of only 1970 responses means it is acceptable to majority is wrong.There are chances that majority of 1970 may be opposing the syllabus!!.Just because the number of responses recd.are less we can not absolve MCI of its responsibility to end uncertainty by announcing the final syllabus.To top it, expecting the students to start studying based on presumptions and assumptions is totally unjustified.
          Secondly,receipt of only 1970 responses is the result of the fact that not many pepole were aware of the core syllabus on MCI site.It was not widely publicised through right channels of Boards and colleges.If it was done,the responses would have multiplied.But then i do not know how long it would have taken to go through those and decide,knowing the time taken to go through ONLY 1970 responses!!!.
          If you look at the whole issue from students perspective,you would know these are not excuses.You have calculated the time available for studyig very right but only mathmatically and not logically.Tell me is this batch geting the same time and frame of mind that subsequent batches will get????Will they not be at disadvantage???.
          If many questions like these are considered sympathatically people like you will stop going against students and instead make efforts to try and convince MCI to understand the genuine problems of the students if NEET is held in 2012 and impress upon them to make proper announcements on syllabus,types of questions etc.for NEET to be held in 2013.

          • Hello Mr Vijay,
            I am a student, I am looking this issue in students perspective, whereas I guess you may be a parent and not looking at the issue, how I do.
            There has been hundreds of news articles in the media already. Enough coverage has already been provided for the NEET.

            I think you are expecting a special invitation from MCI. That will never happen, so instead of speculating and putting up barriers, you better ask your ward to start preparing for the exam.
            Bye

            • Hi Anil,

              I am sorry your guess is wrong.Please stop habit of guessing and be prepared properly as such habit will cost you marks whether you write NEET or state CET.

      • Mr vijay you just need to come out of your comfort cocoon NCERT is the body which prepares the curriculum in india and all the states follow that & I don’t think your state is following US or Great Britain syllabus. You are making baseless comments the ncert has reviewed all the states syllabus and prepared accordingly. When it comes to iit or aieee syllabus (different from state board acc to you) you guys don’t comprise on that because it maintains the quality of students then why not in mbbs. Also mci is planning to conduct exit test to keep a control on munnabhais. Yes u have personal benefits I openly claim that coz u have only problem in neet whereas everyone in this community is backing becoz they are the ones who are frustrated by the system & they are the ones who inspite of working hard & sacrifing every comfort of life to win the race of comptt just get dejected & disheartened on the result day when they come to know the seats are already bought by rich daddy and result is just formality. This pain and agony is coming out from these meritorious students in this forum coz they have suffered and you can’t shut that with your money power or anything. I won’t be surprised if u claim a paid mbbs seat this year & this is called personal benefit. Hope I didn’t cross my limits coz i am also the common man suffering.

        • Hi John,
          I share & uphold your views. NEET is one of the important steps forward to bring in reforms in medical education, without which the present system riddled by corruption would spell doomsday for the country. What ever may come, every Indian has to support this reform for the common benefit of generations to come.

        • Dear Mr.John,

          Congrats!!you are thinking right–my state does not follow US or Great Britain syllabus!!!!!!.
          If NCERT prepares curriculum for India,why are the syllabus of states different? and why NCERT has to review all states syllabus?.So my dear it’s not me but it’s you who is making baseless comments.
          If you bother to carefully see my comments on this blog under different headings, you will know that i have never opposed NEET but the haphazard and hurried way it is being pushed for 2012 without giving a slightest consideration to state board students who only expected that the proper announcement should have been made latest by March 2011.
          Forget March 2011,can any body show me any proper announcement with final syllabus even today on MCI site atleast if not through colleges and boards.I do not know why you all want to study on assumptions and presumptions.Don’t you think things should have been crystal clear by now.
          You have definitely crossed limits by making statements you have made.PL.REFRAIN FROM DOING SO.PL.NOTE I AM ALSO A COMMON MAN AND CAN NOT AFFORD PAID MEDICAL SEAT.

  25. Hi,Dinesh can you tell me something about the level of questions.It’s level will be similar to AIPMT or IIT.

    • Hi Pradeep,
      I anticipate the questions to be simpler than AIPMT or IIT. One cant answer 250 questions in 180 mins if it is made in the mould of AIPMT. Moreover, the NEET is aiming to replace all State CETs, hence it cant be tougher than State level tests.

          • Yes Manav, AIIMS and AFMC will have separate tests. AIIMS being a institution formed by a separate act of the parliament does not come under the purview of NEET. AFMC being under the purview of Defence establishment has physical standards which is different from MCI’s guidelines.

  26. Hi V M Kiri
    The author of the article had opened up this topic to bring out the answers from different readers for those questions which are still being searched by some readers. Pl understand that the author is not the deciding authority. He is only projecting his opinions and perceptions which may be wrong or right.
    Similarly, I am writing here my opinions and perceptions about the topic which some people may accept or may not accept, like you.
    The NEET proposal has been hanging for years and many of us feel that it is already delayed. In my opinion, it should not be delayed any further. BECAUSE…Corruption has to stop, we cannot give one more year to continue. Production of substandard doctors have to be stopped, we cannot allow it to continue any further. Malpractices in State CETs has to stop, it cannot be allowed to continue. Putting students to the stress of writing 5 to 6 entrance tests has to stop. Looting of money from medical colleges by selling prospectus and application for as much as RS.25,000/- each has to stop. Selling UG/PG medical seats for lakhs and crores has to stop. Dubious doctors sucking & looting peoples BLOOD & money has to stop. Medical education which is rich man’s domain now has to stop. ETC., ETC..,
    If you think all these can be allowed to continue then we can think of postponing NEET. So, what do you think???
    In the larger interests of the society and millions of people who are suffering due to these social vices, we need to bear little inconveniences instead of blowing up these issues and trying to stop/postpone NEET. Mind you, we are in a democratic country where there would be small, petty issues always which we need to condone and look forward to tomorrow instead of squabbling minor issues and keep blaming MCI.

  27. Hi Dineshkumar,
    The subject of this blog is regarding wait for MCI decision the students are confronted with.The last line of the writer of this entry speaks a lot and is 100% correct.
    No body is questioning the need for NEET.The differencce is only the way it is being implemented citing legal tool of Supreme Court order.
    If you feel that receipt of only 1970 responses means it is acceptable to majority is wrong.There are chances that majority of 1970 may be opposing the syllabus!!.Just because the number of responses recd.are less we can not absolve MCI of its responsibility to end uncertainty by announcing the final syllabus.To top it, your expecting the students to start studying based on presumptions and assumptions is totally unjustified.

  28. Hello Dinesh,
    You are absolutely right & also i appreciate you.I am in favor of every points you have mentioned.However this must be the responsibility of MCI to provide the necessary information about the NEET-UG at the time of requirement.I mean to say that if MCI will produce the new syllabus having a very negligible change as compared to the first one(according to your statement)then why MCI taking too much time to lunch the sample question paper in it’s website for the benefit of students?I also want to mention that MCI has removed ‘Animal Physiology’ from the syllabus,it’s OK we are studying this in our state board syllabus so it can be managed.In this way we are also studying ‘Mechanics’,’Magnetism’,’Thermodynamics’,’Waves’ etc. in Physics in our state board syllabus,then what is the need of these in the NEET syllabus?If we can manage our standards in ‘Animal Physiology’ only by studying the state board syllabus then why can’t we manage our standards in Physics(above stated topics)studying the same state board syllabus?Again if removing Animal physiology can reduce the overload of the students then i think adding topics like ‘ Mechanics’,’Thermodynamics’ in NEET syllabus can perform the same task done by removing’Animal Physiology’.Then obviously we will become engineers in future.After all in my view the syllabus is very good but removing ‘Animal Physiology’ doesn’t seem to be a fair act mainly for medical aspirants.I am not saying that MCI should remove some chapters of Physics & include ‘Animal Physiology’ because whatever we study in PCB is directly or indirectly related to a source of knowledge which will applicable to practical situations when we become doctor.So what should be deleted & what should be added is the duty of MCI.At same time the duty should not be completed after the exam,rather it should to be done when the aspirants need it.It’s OK then the MCI should know when the aspirants need it.If MCI is ignore about this then what responsibility MCI has to play with the future of lakhs of students.If MCI can’t compliment a responsibility then why MCI took it disturbing lakhs of students waiting for the new syllabus.My request to MCI ‘please listen to students problem & try to solve it by declaring the final decision about NEET-UG(Syllabus shall be changed/will remain the same & provide the sample question paper)as soon as possible.Thank you.

    • Hi Shruti,
      Pl read my post carefully once again. The common core syllabus was formulated by NCERT, which is the apex body governing the school syllabus in the country. It is not MCI which has decided the NEET syllabus. The common core syllabus was formed after months of study and deliberations by a NCERT panel. Hence, if any changes are to be made it has to go through the process. Since the feedback recd is very little, there may not be any change at all. Therefore, I am suggesting let us not wait for revised syllabus but start preparing on the proposed syllabus.
      Today doctors have more gadgets, equipment etc used for diagnosis, treatment,surgery etc. Hence, it is felt that they need more knowledge in Physics, thats the reason the weightage is increased from 25% to 30%. So you would find more physics. Pl understand, the syllabus announced is confined to NEET only. States have liberty to keep more topics in their HSC syllabus.
      First of all Who told you to wait for revised syllabus??? MCI has never said that it will announce revised syllabus. It has only told the feedbacks forwarded to authorities for necessary action. That doesn’t mean that it is advocating for change in syllabus!!! It is all people’s perception. Its all pure speculation. Instead of waiting and speculating, I suggest we start preparing for the syllabus announced.
      Finally, why do you need question paper??? It is already announced that it will be objective type questions of 75 each in physics and chemistry and 100 questions in Biology, all to be answered in 3 hrs.

      Several persons raise the questions instead of searching for answers which are already there. I hope I have addressed all your queries.

  29. Some readers have expressed their apprehension about MCI’s delay in announcing the revised syllabus. In my opinion, the Common Core Syllabus was prepared by NCERT after considering various State Syllabus in vogue and the same was put up in MCI’s website. There were only 1970 feed backs on this proposal, which suggests that majority of the people are in favour of the syllabus proposed. Hence, there may not be any revision at all. Instead of waiting for the revised syllabus, the readers should go forward adopting the proposed syllabus.
    If at all any change would come, it would be very little which can be addressed before the exam.
    Secondly, many readers are cribbing about dropping Human Anatomy in the syllabus. Mind you, NCERT is dropping only from the NEET but not in the HSC portions. One of the reasons for dropping is that the weightage for Biology is only 40%. Human Anatomy which is one of the biggest in Biology has to be dropped to make the syllabus lighter. In the NEET perspective the syllabus is made lighter. Does that matter to you???? Instead of feeling deprived you should feel happy. Fewer topics means fewer problems. These people should understand that NCERT does not advocate all State Boards should replicate NEET syllabus in their HSC. The State Boards can still have their human Anatomy portion in their text books. Guys pl understand the logic.
    Some readers were cribbing that the time left before the exams are insufficient. There are several instances where a student is able to qualify CET taking crash course for 2 months. When we have nearly 9 months left, is it difficult for such students to prepare for the test??? The test has been fixed on the last Sunday of May 2012, that means there is clearly 2 full months free time after the HSC exams in Mar 2012, is that not sufficient for a student to prepare??? I think these people are looking out for excuses rather than putting their efforts into study. Procrastination is the worst enemy for progress.

    When the entire nation is moving against corruption and wanting to have transparent ways and means introduced, NEET is the right step forward in ushering in an era of peerless selection of medical aspirants.

    • I realy appreciate your point by point claification hope these people will understand value of neet however one point u didnt mentioned that some are cribbing for local language is any one can tell me in which medical college they teach in other than english so at any cost u will have to learn english why not now.

      • Hi Kumar,
        Thanks for the support.
        I appreciate your point. Never the less, we have to give in something to cheer them up and that would be NEET in their own language. It is a fact that several rural students have no option than to study only in local language, for the benefit of those students, we have to provide question papers in their local language.
        The ideal situation would be for a student to be adequately proficient in english in the HSC stage itself which should help him to understand Medical classes in a better manner.
        Hope you agree with me.

    • Thanks for the point to point clarification.
      NEET is the better solution for all the genuine MBBS aspirants nation wide to avoid all types of curruption.
      Hope & I pray for NEET come into effect from next accademic year.

        • Hi Dineshkumar,
          Inconveniences are little or not,issues are petty/small/minor or not–these are all relative terms.The meaning of these is different for sufferers like,in this case,students of this batch and different for opinion writers like ———–!
          As far as my thinking regarding importance and need of NEET,I believe I have made it amply clear in my earlier postings.Even I feel it should not have been delayed and should have been properly announced in March/April 2010 if it was to be held in 2012.Since proper announcement has still not happened it should be now announced immeditely through proper channels and hold it in 2013 instead of doing it haphazardly.Being in Democratic country we should not deny equal opportunity to students of present batch of Medical aspirants vis a vis following batches!!!
          Let us all fight against corruption in a systematic and planned way.But definitely not at the cost of careers of students for no fault of theirs.

  30. I THINK IT’S HIGH TIME TO HAVE A COMMON ENTRANCE IN INDIA FOR MEDICAL AND I STRONGLY SUPPORT MCI AND SUPREME COURT FOR THEIR PROPOSED NEET.

  31. Even if a common entrance test is deferred, MCI or CBSE must give a serious thought to check some malpractices as follows :
    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.

  32. As far as Medical PG is concerned syllabus and schedule is confirmed between Jan’ and Feb’. There is no ambiguty and we are waiting for the notification and modalities of local and other ceats sharing. I hope all the PG aspirents should prepare for it and it seems there is no ambiquity. let us welcome the change , which is having lot of common things and convinients to all.

  33. It is really heartening to know the efforts being taken by Career Mitra and perticularly Mr.Shrikant by providing this forum to all including students,parents of state board students who are now in 12th and are most affected.
    NEET is the best thing to happen for Medical field and there is no doubt that it is required if we want to get quality Doctors.But just because Supreme court has told to conduct it,should the students psychology and their views be taken for granted?.They have been studying as per prescribed syllabus since Aug.2010 in colleges and coaching classes and suddenly out of the blue CORE SYLLABUS!!! is put up in July 2011 end for feedback till Aug.11, 2011 for CARRER AND LIFE DECIDING TEST to be held IN MAY 2012!!!!!.Almost one month is over and no news on final syllabus.!!Is it not an irony that Experts require and are given more than one month to go through 1970 feed backs to finalize syllabus and students are expected to study the suddenly changed syllabus in balance available time?.It is nothing but cruel joke for state board students aspiring to be doctors.Has Supreme Court given blanket permission to ruin the careers by conducting test without giving proper and advance intimation to Boards,colleges and students?.I am sure any body who has common sense and understands the kind of preparation a student needs to be ready for CET,will agree that announcment has to be made with final Syllabus before the student joins 11th std.and not when he is in the midst of 12th.
    Supreme court has done its job but agencies(MCI,BOARDS AND COLLEGES) who were supposed have prpoprly announced in advance have failed and the sufferers are helpless students for no fault of theirs.
    I am sure Supreme Court wanted to do Justice by asking to conduct Common CET, but by implementing it haphazardly It will only lead to INJUSTICE to students.
    I sincerely hope that the whole matter is relooked into from Students’point 0f view and JUSTICE is done by announcing syllabus,paper pattern etc.for test to be held in May 2013 for academic session 2013-14 and not to hold test in May 2012.

    • Dear VK
      Also please think of old aspirants, they might not have studied the new syllabus what MCI is going to approve. So it is useless to talk about that students studying in +2 are not taught latest prescribed syllabus. How many aspirants directly get selected after they pass their twelfth exam ? One need to take coaching seriously for one or two years to qualify any medical entrance test. I think, it is too late to implement common CET. Please agree with me and prepare for commone CET 2012 with the new syllabus likely to be announce shortly.

      • Dear Mr.Dharamvir,
        I am not able to make out what you are trying to say.You are saying that it is too late to implement common CET and next you are advising to prepare for Common CET 2012!!

        • Common CET is already behind its schedule 2011. MCI or CBSE will come with a Common CET (not in full) from May 2012 entrance exam. Some states may not join this year and as such their students are likely to debarred from appearing in Common CET. It is likely to be announced shortly.

  34. MCI has proposed backdated & obsolete topics under NEET-UG Biology syllabus.Let me cite one small example.Now a days many students of first year MBBS course have opened a page named “I HATE ANATOMY” in facebook.It was a mammoth task to cover up the anatomy syllabi in 1st year.Students were merely introduced to anatomy in +2 level by a chapter called Arthrology (movement , locomotion of human body..).In spite of this 1st year anatomy course was a nightmare to them.But now MCI had smashed away any scope for the HS students to get introduced in anatomy in first year MBBS course.Our first year MBBS course consist of human medical physiology , human anatomy , and medical biochemistry.NEET-UG biology syllabus is great for students willing to study ZOOLOGY , BOTANY , BT , MICROBIOLOGY Hons…etc.Preparing this syllabus will not at all help first year MBBS students.NEET IS SIMPLY A CHEAT TO MBBS ASPIRANTS.

  35. will MCI please clarify what are importances of studying physiology of cockroach and anatomy of root,stem and leaf instead of basic knowledges about human physiology for medical entrance students?

  36. Its india.Indians are always late.In medical field india is 10-15 years late from America.in india Exam system is 50 years old.

    RAt rat kar pass ho jaoo.but no conceptual exams.it produce great doctors who can play inocent patients.
    MCI should think about USMLE pattern at least,and should be puntual.

  37. its absolutely unethical to leave us with just 7 months for a syllabus that takes two years to prepare for and is completely different from the syllabus i have been studying——-and i am just voicing the concerns of lakhs of students———-ppl who study n the cbse board will get in ,no matter how undeserving they are———–look at the papers set for aipmt —u’ll see that even the diagrams and labelling is copied from the books cbse students read!!!!

  38. ITS REALLY VERY BAD.THE EXAMS ARE TO BE CONDUCTED FROM 2012.SEPTEMBER,2011 HAS REACHED & TILL DATE MCI HAS NOT ANNOUNCED FIRMLY THAT NEET-UG WILL BE CONDUCTED ON SUCH & SUCH DATE NEXT YEAR.MCI SHOULD PUBLISHED THE FINALLISED SYLLABUS AND DATES FOR EXAMS.MANY STATE GOVTS ARE OPPOSING THE DESCISION OF CONDUCTING SINGLE EXAMS FOR MEDICAL ENTRANCE.PLS CLARIFY SOON SO THAT THE STUDENTS PREPARING SHOULD GET CLEAR PICTURES IN THEIR MIND.

  39. YE BAHUT BADA MAZAQ HO RAHA HAI HAMARA FUTURE MCI K LIYE KOI QEEMAT NI RAKHTA ITNE KAM TIME ME IS YEAR NEET UG KI PRPN NI HO SAKTI

  40. Dear Sir,
    This is really a cause of great concern for aspiring students that MCI has still not come up with revisedsyllabus & schedule for the proposed NEET UG. MCI had promised to finalize the details of NEET UG in august but they are still keeping silence over such an important issue that puts the future of so many medical aspirants at stake. It is the prime responsibility of the ministry of education to intervene in this matter & instruct MCI to take final decision in this regard as soon as possible. MCI must realize that the proposed syllabus of biology is extremely awkward as it does not cover animal physiology and several other important topics. A number of surveys carried out by independent websites as well as the precious opinions of experts suggest that the animal physiology is indispensable for medical aspirants. Besides, they should remove other discrepansies & should not delay it any further.

    • I humbly request to MCI for a final decesion at the earliest for setting the course of study for all the MBBS aspirants.
      Is neet is going to happen in next accademic year?
      Yes,No,Yess,Noo.
