No Negative Marks in NEET-MCI Committee

As per sources, there will be no negative marks in the proposed common medical entrance test NEET. An expert committee set up by MCI to look in to the core decision related to implementation of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) has called for no negative marks proposal. The questions in the proposed NEET will be MCQs (multiple choice questions) and the proposed cut off will be 50% for General category students & 40% for reserved categories.

Percentiles not percentages will determine the shortlisting for NEET, committee had to think if there will be minimum eligible candidates in the newly proposed common medical entrance test; hence a proposal had been made to avoid negative marking said sources.

Which means this could pretty well have a luck factor; you can guess an answer instead of leaving the question unanswered. If your guess is right you can earn marks, there are chances that students who don’t prepare enough simply attempt the exam and mark options because the test will be of objective type.

Update: In case of tie in marks, negative marks will be used to break the tie. Source

    MCI TO MDIFY SYLLABUS
    The Medical Council of India (MCI) has decided to make modifications in the syllabus of the proposed National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) after objections were raised by states including Maharashtra. Activists in Pune have been pressing for modifications in the syllabus. The decision was taken at a joint meeting of the MCI, Central Board of Secondary Education and the Union health ministry on Monday.

    Rajiv Yervadekar, member, MCI’s board of governors, said, “After suggestions and objections were recieved by MCI on the proposed NEET syllabus, it has now been decided that certain modifications will be included before the final syllabus is put up on the website in the next few days. Though how much and what will be changed can not be disclosed right now.”

    He further added the exam is likely to be conducted in April-May 2012 and MCI is fully prepared to go ahead with the exam. The examination paper will have 180 questions with 45 questions each in physics and chemistry and 90 in biology. As per the percentile system that is being introduced for the first time, a student will now be able to score more marks for a correct answer for a difficult question

    I dont discuss whether neet is good or not(already discussed a lot) as I ready in both condition. but inspite of oppose no state pmt authority declared thier test shedule date which normaly declared in last week of september or first week of october.

    Even CBSE has not come out with AIPMT date only AIIMS declared their shedule which is not included in neets by analyzing things maximum chances are that neet will be in 2012. if someone have information regarding declaration of date by any medical college pls share.

    Progress In NEET
    BHUBANESWAR: The Medical Council of India (MCI) chairman, Dr K K Talwar, on Saturday ruled out the possibility of conducting National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), the proposed overarching pre-medical entrance in the country, in vernacular languages.

    In a perceived setback to West Bengal, Gujarat and Karnataka, the states which demanded that state language as medium of the test, Dr Talwar said, “It is not practically possible. The examination will be held in Hindi and English only.”

    A meeting of MCI, Central Board of Secondary Education and representatives of various states will be held in New Delhi on Monday (October 17) to address the concerns of the states and give a final shape to the proposed test.

    “I am hopeful that all concerns of the states will be duly addressed considering the issue in totality,” Dr Talwar told TOI. The MCI boss was in the city to attend the annual conference and convocation of the National Academy of Medical Sciences ( NAMS) here.

    Responding to the concerns of Goa and Maharashtra about the syllabi, Dr Talwar said the syllabus has been evolved by the MCI taking into consideration the syllabi of all the states. No state or board will have advantage or disadvantage, he said, adding, the feedbacks of all concerned were being considered on the draft syllabi put in the MCI website.

    MCI is likely to take a final decision on the syllabus, question papers and whether to go for negative marking in the national level test during the October 17 meeting.

    The NEET is tentatively scheduled for May 13. It will replace all state-level entrance tests for admission into undergraduate medical courses in 2012. The paper will have 180 questions, comprising 45 each from physics, chemistry, botany and zoology. The test is proposed to be of 180 minutes duration.

    Applications forms, both online and offline, for NEET, would tentatively be available from the second week of December.

    Hello Pals,

    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….!!!!!!

  20. ashutosh` says:

  21. chandan says:

    negative marking is an important factor which should maintain

  22. Saswat says:

  23. Sirsha says:

  24. Prince says:

    definitely yaar issi saal bata dega….
    Mci ne jo core syllabus anounce kiya tha tu usi ki preprtion kar… Agar kuch change v hota hai to wo issi syllabus k around hoga….

  25. natasha says:

    removing negative marking is a good idea
    but if people are against it, then they can try on a different method of evaluation, like
    two different percentages for right answers and wrong answers
    in this way it will help in knowing where a person stands

  26. jagriti varshney says:

    can someone tell me when mci will declare final syllabus for neet 2012.i hope ki issi year bata de

  27. Prince says:

    Removal of negative marking is not a gud idea…
    In any competitive exam negative marking play a vital role. It makes exam more competitive and thus only meritorious students qualify…
    Hame bher bakriyo ko mbbs nahi padhana hai… India me bahut sare students TUKKA expert hain…

    • rajput says:

      prince yaar 200 quaetions mein se kitno me tukka lag sakta hai . Ho sakta hai ke tukka lagane wale ke marks jyada ho jayein par merit ti phir bhi nahin aayegi.

      • Prince says:

        rajput bhai… Merit aane na aane ka koi matlab nahi hai…
        Main funda hai achche medical colege me admison hone ka…
        Jab aapse kam knowledge wala student aap se jyada rank lata hai na to bahut dukh hota hai….
        Is cheez ko dur bhagane ke liye negative marks is very helpful….

    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.

    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.

  29. purna says:

    Removal of negative marking is not a good idea. Luck factor will play a role. It is better to lower the cut-off.

  30. patnaik says:

    yeah i do agree with u all but its the best decision for present it is going to favour students who feel that neet ug is not desirable solely because it is very similar to cbse syllabus. This is a bumper offer to them !
    well gear up guys its the time to rock

  31. Ramesh (Bangalore) says:

    Hi Guys,
    Considering the fact that NEET is new and to allay the fears from some States that adequate candidates may not qualify in NEET, the decision of MCI is quite sensible. The other factor off-course is the difference in syllabus of some States. This concession may be there for 1 or 2 years and may be withdrawn later to make it more competitive.

    In my opinion, it is a good decision for the time being. If we are to get the real merited students, then this system should be withdrawn sooner or later.

    As rightly pointed by Srikanth, there is a element of luck in this system. MCI should withdraw this scheme in a phased manner so that we dont get guys qualifying using ” INKY PINKY PONKY”

  32. Subhankar says:

    When will MCI declare the final syllabus?

  33. Ashraf says:

    The proposal of the committee to evade negative marks is unfortunate. While even a single mark will vary several ranks this will adversely affect meritorious students. It will be a lottery. To make more students eligible for MBBS admission it is wise to lower the minimum qualifying mark.

  34. Rahul says:

    This no negative marking system is not good
