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.
