The drama continues over NEET UG, Andhra Pradesh wants to bunk NEET UG in the coming year and mulling plans to avoid NEET UG forever. According to sources, AP government wants a one year relief from NEET UG and wants it’s students to sit for EAMCET. NEET UG is a nation wide common medical entrance test for MBBS or BDS courses in Government & Private Medical colleges in India.
NEET UG is a proposal from Medical Council of India replacing state level medical entrance tests. AP is counter acting on the announcement made by CBSE regarding the maiden NEET UG. A press release indicated that NEET UG will take place on 05 May 2013 (Sunday). The test will be conducted by CBSE, seat distribution will be 85% state students and 15% for national students from each state. Andhra Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir have different constitutional rights under articles 371 (A) and 371 (D) and these states need not share any medical seats to a nation level test.
The response or reaction from MCI is awaited, it is unsure whether AP will have NEET UG in 2013. Share your inputs!
