NEET Will Be Held Only in English & Hindi

The proposed common medical entrance test (NEET) will only be held in Hindi & English. MCI chairman Dr K K Talwar had said “It is practically not possible to hold the test in vernacular languages, NEET can only be held in Hindi & English” (via). This will set back hopes of few states which were demanding vernacular languages in the proposed common medical entrance test. Gujarat, Karnataka, West Bengal are few states which have asked for printing questions in local language.

MCI held a core meeting today and is likely to finalize dates and syllabus for the proposed common medical entrance test according to source. Dr Talwar has said MCI has taken the feedback of all concerned and will decide on the final syllabus, he has said no state will have an unfair advantage over other states with respect to the syllabus.

AIIMS & JIPMER Still Good – Despite NEET

Medical Council of India (MCI) will conduct NEET-UG in the month of May 2012, as per a report MCI will exempt AIIMS & JIPMER to conduct their own entrance test without imposing NEET. Which means AIIMS medical entrance test & JIPMER medical entrance test will not be discontinued despite NEET-UG.

AFMC medical entrance test for Armed Forces Medical College might be scrapped, meanwhile Andhra Pradesh based Dr. NTR University of Health Sciences has reportedly announced that the University will not hold EAMCET in 2012. Which means Andhra Pradesh will participate in NEET UG 2012, first ever common medical entrance test.

The present political drama in state has worried students more than anything else; schools and colleges were forced to shutdown by the Telangana supporters; in protest for a separate State. MBBS aspirants will have to adopt to something new for next year (NEET-UG). There will not be EAMCET for medical college admissions next year onwards.

Applications will be issued in the month of December and NEET is likely to be held on May 13, 2011. Syllabus will be normalized in order to satisfy all the State Board students and MCI will also ensure that reservation are not waived off. 85% seats for home state based students, 15% seats for rest of India.

The last thing a student should hope is the finalized syllabus and examination schedule. MCI is confident of holding NEET in the year 2012 despite protests from state governments. States which don’t wish to have a common entrance test are Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, West Bengal, Karnataka and Goa.
