Couple of days ago we have written about the proposal made by Medical Council of India (MCI) and Union health ministry to conduct a common medical entrance test for admissions into medical colleges in India. As per the proposal CBSE was asked to conduct the test and MCI will set the syllabus for the common entrance test.
Even before the proposal was approved few states has raised concerns and expressed dissatisfaction about the new proposal. Reasons being the difficulty in drafting a common syllabus for all States, DNA has reported that the “Karnataka government has opposed the decision to conduct a national-level single common entrance test for medical undergraduate courses from next year”. The reason quoted was non uniformity in the syllabus across various boards & states.
Orissa government too has raised concern stating the local students from the respective states will be effected if a common entrance test is conducted, the Orissa government also expressed concern about home state’s students future if they don’t qualify in the proposed Common Entrance Test. – As reported by TOI
The center’s decision is awaited on the Common Entrance Test for Medical College admissions.
