As a breather to thousands of medical aspirants; NEET UG has been put on hold in West Bengal. The West Bengal Joint Entrance Board will hold the test for medical college admissions even this year. West Bengal too had taken the route along with other opposing states like Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamilnadu and Jammu & Kashmir which managed to escape NEET (the common medical entrance test proposed by MCI) next year.
Times of India reported that, “After a meeting of the JEE board members with officials of the higher education and health departments on Wednesday, the board unanimously decided to conduct the JEE medical and engineering 2012 as usual. “We’ll issue the final notification soon and start distributing forms,” said board chairman Bhaskar Gupta”.
WBJEE is likely to be held on April 15, 2012 and the test remains as usual. West Bengal too had issues with vernacular languages and syllabus, the state higher education department had taken this into consideration and is deferring NEET UG.
Although news are wandering around that NEET UG will not take place next year; students are confused as no official announcement is made by the Medical Council of India.
