West Bengal to participate in NEET-UG 2013, question papers to be set in Bengali as well

The West Bengal will scrap it’s state level medical CET and participate in NEET-UG 2013, which is to be conducted by CBSE on 05 May 2013. CBSE has agreed to add Bengali as a medium of instruction besides English & Hindi, as reported by Times of India. Last year WB JEE board strongly objected NEET-UG on the grounds of language & syllabus barrier. The Medical Council of India (MCI) last year announced that the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) will have to be taken only in English or Hindi. However this year, MCI is ensuring & zeroing on the concerns by the State Governments.

The NEET-UG is a medical entrance exam for MBBS & BDS courses, students through NEET will have access to 15% medical seats at all India level and 85% seats in their respective states. MCI opinions that the medical CET reduces burden on students as they need to appear for 3 or less medical entrance exams. NEET-UG, JIPMER Medical entrance exams and AIIMS Medical Entrance exam are the prominent test an aspiring medical student will need to appear. The NEET-UG became controversial primarily due to varied syllabi across different state boards comparing to that that of NCERT prepared NEET-UG syllabus.

WB chief minister Mamata Banerjee is against the interests of NEET. She joins Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha & Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy to object NEET-UG.

    First of all,WBJEE syllabus and ALL INDIA syllabus is different,its pattern also.It is true that most of the students under CBSC can’t compete with WEST BENGAL’s students in WBJEE for only its pattrern.So it is very clear that most of the students will face difficulty on for books(english),syllabus and pattern not for their lack of intelligence.CBSC student will get more advantage that is totally unfair.One student should give atleast two year for their preparation,Please Mamatadi,opposes this unfair strictly

      There will be students from west bengal whether they are from WB board or CBSE board. Those who are capable of doing, they will do in a year or two. Those who cannot, will be given plenty of years to try their luck. Moreover, there is no problem of syllabus. For so many years CBSE is conducting AIPMT test; which is conducted from a per-defined syllabus, but every time they succeed in dodging students by setting up a different style of questions.

  7. mukesh says:

    It is same for all the students whether it will be tough or easy set of questions in NEET. Now aspirants are required to put in their best. There will be a merit list among the students of a particular state and a central list. The only difference will be that states monopoly in conduct of exam and manipulating of results will end.

    W.B Govt. should not participate the NEET syllabus because it is not eligible for wb state board student. Mamta banerjee should not sign this bond……………

  9. Samaresh mondal says:

    Plz sir plz!neet-2013 will be most dificult for bengal students.students has spent 75% times.they r fully depend on w.b.syllbus.

  10. mukesh says:

    Those who are gaining their MBBS from Bengal, should only be permitted to register for practice in West Bengal and Bangladesh and not in any other part of India.

  11. Haimanti Bhattacharya says:

    W.B Govt. should not participate the NEET syllabus as it is not universal…in WBJEE,physiology part is more and on the other hand in the NEET syllabus the botany part is more……….same for the syllabus for physics and chemistry as well…students of W.B will feel difficulty and can not cope the syllabus with NEET!!!!!!!govt should take necessary steps…..cause the rural students will suffer a lot!!!mamata banerjee should not accept this from 213….she should end this drama as soon as possible!!!!!

  12. sekhar says:

    it is an unfortunate decision . west bengal board syllabus is at least 30% different from NEET syllabus as per MCI.No bengali books on NEET syllabus at present in the market.No time for class XII student.Pl. reconsider the decision and may start NEET from 2014 after some preparation time for student.teacher,publisher.
