No decision has been taken yet by the Union Health Ministry in connection with the ‘Common Medical Entrance Test for MBBS & BDS Admissions’, the newly proposed entrance test by MCI. CET for medical courses is officially called as ‘National Eligibility cum Entrance Test’ for Under Graduate admissions (NEET UG).
As days passed by, medical students have burned time with no clue on the test they have to appear after five months. ‘Whether it is state level entrance exam or the newly proposed NEET UG’ we are confused said Ravindra a medical student hailing from Andhra Pradesh. Although our state government announced there won’t be NEET UG next year, we can’t take it for granted and we want to wait till an official announcement is made by either MCI or CBSE he out spoked.
Several opinions from news channels and news papers are confusing us said a medical student from Kerala. We are of the view that MCI with draws this decision as Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh are against it. If it is a common medical entrance test, then how few states can play safe she added.
CBSE reportedly has written to the Union Health Minister Mr. Ghulam Nabi Azad asking for his final nod on the finalized syllabus. The Hindu has published an article speaking with Mr. Ramesh Chandra Deka, Director and Chief Executive Officer of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).
Mr. Deka is of the view that, the idea of common medical entrance test for under graduate admissions is uncalled for as there is no uniform syllabus across India. Different states follow different curriculum, putting them under a common test window will put the rural students at a disadvantage he stated.
AIIMS & JIPMER opted out from the NEET UG months ago, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, West Bengal, Tamilnadu and Jammu & Kashmir are refusing to debut in NEET UG next year lately Maharashtra and Gujarat too are expressing dissatisfaction over vernacular languages and unbridged syllabus.
