CBSE to conduct All India Pre Medical Entrance Test (AIPMT) on 04, May 2014*

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a press note stating that it will conduct an All India Pre Medical Entrance Test (AIPMT) on 04 May 2014. However the final decision whether AIPMT 2014 will be held or not is based on the outcome of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India. Readers are aware that in 2013 CBSE has conducted NEET UG instead of AIPMT for the 15% government seats in Medical / Dental colleges across India (excluding J&K, Andhra Pradesh).

Although NEET UG too is for the 15% government quota seats but the problem with NEET UG was that it was the lone test for all Medical & Dental colleges in India. MCI (The Medical Council of India) & CBSE after facing severe criticism over NEET UG syllabus issue are left with no option than to roll back to the good old AIPMT.

AIPMT 2014 will consist of one paper with 180 objective type questions from the subjects Physics, Chemistry, Botany and Zoology (45 questions from each subject). The syllabus is same as that of NEET UG and the format of the paper is also on the similar lines. The major difference is that AIPMT will not replace any other state level Medical or Dental CETs. Private Universities will conduct their own entrance exams instead of relying on a sole test.

However readers must note that the final verdict by the Apex Court on NEET UG is due and AIPMT will be held subject to an approval by the Supreme Court of India.

Private medical colleges & state governments can conduct their own medical entrance exam – SC

The Medical Council of India (MCI) has conducted NEET-PG for postgraduate medical admissions for the academic year 2013-2014, prior to the test MCI has made NEET-PG mandatory for all states and all medical colleges including private medical colleges and universities. Challenging the MCI’s move several private medical colleges have approached the apex court, on Thursday Supreme Court has ruled in favour of the private medical colleges.

Private medical colleges and State Governments can conduct their own medical entrance exam for postgraduate medical courses. The apex court has taken it’s stance after observing that few medical colleges have already conducted the medical entrance exam. NEET-PG was concluded last month which was an online exam. It was the first such medical entrance exam conducted by MCI, National Board of Examination (NBE) has been the responsible body for conducting NEET-PG. NBE has taken technical support from Prometric, the test reported no technical glitches.

Based on the verdict given by the apex court on validity of NEET-PG, the question thus arises is whether NEET-UG will also see similar such problems. Post the test will other medical colleges, universities and state governments conduct their own medical entrance exam? The core idea behind the national level test barring all other medical entrance exams is to lessen the burden on the students, students have to fill up several entrance exam forms and pay application form fees for all tests. One test on other side reduces the financial burden, however the timing of the test is questionable.
