Common Medical Entrance Test Will It Happen?

Earlier MCI has announced its will for holding a common medical entrance test for both undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate (PG) medical courses in India from the academic year 2012. The entrance tests are named as NEET-UG for undergraduate courses (MBBS) and NEET-PG for postgraduate courses (MS).

The core syllabus was released for NEET-UG which was designed by National Council of Education Research and Training (NCERT). NCERT is an apex resource organization set by the Government of India and is headquartered in New Delhi. The functioning of NCERT is to advise the Central and State Governments on academic matters related to school education. NCERT will also publish books that are used in government and private schools across India.

It is evident that NCERT’s primary responsibility is to advise in the school education matters, although NCERT designs the national curriculum framework; one might still wonder as how NCERT can neutralize the common syllabus keeping in view of vast diversity in our education system. Each state boards follow their own curriculum which may be higher or lesser in depth compared to central CBSE syllabus. Usually state based boards have high emphasis on mathematics not necessarily on physics, but CBSE will emphasize more on Physics.

As a result public is of the view that the core syllabus released by MCI for NEET-UG laid heavy emphasis on Physics, State based medical entrance exams really doesn’t bother about Physics as they believe Physics is usually for engineering aspirants and Biology for medical aspirants.

However when MCI has asked for public feedback on the core syllabus the response was almost bleak, MCI claimed to have received feedback from only 1970 people which infact suggests that many are still ok with the syllabus released. So one can expect that MCI might conduct its first ever common medical entrance test (national level) in the year 2012 with out much changes to the syllabus.

MCI website already has a separate tab for NEET, NEET-UG, NEET-PG & NEET-SS. For NEET-PG MCI has kept the information as “The common entrance test (CET) for admission to Medical Post-graduate Courses across the country i.e. National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test for Medical Postgraduate Courses – MD/MS/Diploma (NEET-PG ) shall be held in Jan-Feb 2012 for admissions in the academic year 2012-2013. The syllabus is that of MBBS described in the MCI Regulations on Graduate Medical Education, 1997. The multiple choice questions (MCQs) would be based on the MBBS syllabus as well as the knowledge that needs to be acquired during internship which is also described in the said Regulations. The distribution of questions, model questions and method of tie breaking for ranking would be placed on the website in the due course.”

Other reasons why ‘Common Medical Entrance Test’ is likely to happen is that Mr. Kapil Sibal the Hon’ble HRD Minister has always emphasized about conducting common entrance test for engineering & management courses. In few interviews he said holding common entrance tests as his dream to avoid burden financially and physically on students by doing away with multiple entrance exams.

A proposal has already been made by AICTE (the apex body of technical education) to conduct a single entrance test for management courses from the academic year 2013. You can get more information by visiting here.

Soon India will have ‘One Entrance Exam’ concept for Engineering, Medical, Management & other courses also.

It is likely that NEET-UG a common medical entrance test for undergraduate courses will be held from the coming years. So what are your views? Do you agree with me? Do share your thoughts!

  1. Well i hope that d above discussion abt neet is correct but i jus gave a call to one of those ppl who sell MBBS seats …
    They r booking seats for 2013 and he was quite sure that one exam wont be conducted…
    He was very clear abt this n so was booking seats all over india..
    Now wat guys?

    1. It depends from which state you are from, mostly NEET UG will happen next year. Few states like AP, JK and West Bengal may object it. If you are not from one of these states I suggest to prepare for NEET UG.

  2. Is NEET surely going to happen in may 2013?If it happens,in tamil nadu will the 12th board marks be taken into consideration to get into the local colleges?

    please reply as soon as possible…

  3. hiii…just waannaa askk m in gujart in 2 sem u r thnkngg of NEET i m ok wth it..bt can i knw from which year its going to be applied???? Plzz reply..!!

  4. plz tel me whether there will be Neet conducted in 2013??? as i m in big tension.. if there’l be neet, then we hav to prepare for dat level…

  5. im now going to go 11th class of 2012-2013,will there be neet or cet for medical entrance in karnataka and andhra pradesh .plz tell quickly im goin mad ,coz if its cet then i hv to stay in karnataka as im here since 3 years and by my 12th i will complete 5 years and there is some reservation for children who stay in karnataka for 5 or 7 years in cet,if its neet i will go andhra pradesh for good coaching for neet for medical,plz tell quick i hv to decide it.

  6. As before,State-PMT ,AIPMT , DPMT were there were many options available to a medical seeking student who could try in more than one PMT and the students were very satisfied with it and ther was no protest against it.
    It is good to bring about changes and as MCI is bringing it but at the same time they should look for pros and cons of the new decision.
    However the final decision should have an open poll on a large scale.
    So hope for the best !!!!

    I m really confused………….

  9. I don’t think those students can clear any medical exam whether it is state or AIPMT who don’t have command over their NCERT. NCERT has most basic syllabus. Its not about one exam its also about those students who are preparing for Aipmt and state board exam and Aiims for Aipmt and Aiims we have stress mostly on NCERT but for state the syllabus is so elabirated that we got only mess of it and for toppers they had to read all the possible books. I don’t find possible reason to discard common entrance exam. Last year in Aiims physics has 16 assertion reason question out of 30 from heading summary of ncert.

  11. @drashok
    Very good article. Lot of inputs have been given but one thing I foresee that despite everybody’s honest efforts, NEET is not likely to happen because of influence of power politicians , stake of Crores of ruppes involvement from management of Pvt Medical colleges and brokers(Consulatant in refined terms) spread over in India. If it happens, it will be miracle in this democratic india as many students are having severe language problem, shortage of time, different syllabus but few of them have big fat daddy! Best of luck Drashok!

  12. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THAT WHAT ARE THE MEDICAL ENTRANCES CONDUCT IN INDIA? AMONG THAT WHICH ARE INCLUDED IN COMMON ENTRANCE EXAM(NEETUG) SCHEME? JIPMER, AFMC,KOMEDKE,KEAM,CMC VELLOOR,AIIMS ARE JOINED IN THAT SCHEME? IF COMMON EXAM IS POSSIBLE,HOW WILL BE THE EXAM,IS WILL IT BE VERY TOUGH?

      1. M.C.I.IS AUTONOMUS BODY TO DECIDE MEDICAL EDUCATION & ADMISSION ELIGIBILTY CRITERIA REGULATION FOR U.G AND P.G. SUBJECTS THAT WHAT M.C.I. DONE BY PUBLISHING NEET EXAMINATION REGULATION AFTER TAKING PERMISSION FROM CENTRAL GOVT ON 28-12-10 AND SAME HAS BEEN PUBLISED IN GAZETTE OF INDIA ON 27-12-10 AND IT HAS ALSO BEEN SIGHTED IN SUPREME COURT CASE NO I.A.-32 OF WRIT PETITION 443 OF 1992 DECIDED N WRIT PETITION NO-380OF 2009 N DATED07-03-2011. MCI NEVER CONDUCET ANY COMPTITION TEST FOR ANY ADMISSION IT IS CENTRAL GOVT WHICH DECIDE THAT WHO WILL CONDUCT THE NEET EXAMINATION HERE CENTRAL GOVT HAS FAILED AS FOR P.G EXAMINATION NO ORGINIZATION LIKE AIIMS ARE READY TO TAKE EXAMINATIO DUE TO LAKE OF INFRASTRUCTURE AVAILBLE WITH THEM AND IN PREVIOUS YEAR THEY WERE IN LIME LIGHT DUE TO SCAM IN AIPGMEE AND IN AIIMS EXAMINATION BUT FOR U.G. NEET EXAMINATION C.B.S.E IS READY TO TAKE NEET EXAIMNTION BUT MOST OF STATE SOUHGT STAY FROM RESPECTIVE HIGH COURTS AND THIS STAY HAS NOT BEEN FINALY GRANTED BY ANY COURT ONLY NOTICE HAS BEEN SERVED TO M.C.I. AND CENTRAL GOVT TO RESPOND ON THEIR PETITIONS AND RESULT WILL COME AFTER THEIR REPLY ONLY BUT HERE IS QUESTION THAT WHEN THERE IS REGULATION IN FORCE AND CBSE HAS BEEN APPOINTED BY CENTRAL GOVT AND DATE HAS BEEN FIXED AS 13-05-2012 AND . MCI HAS REMOVED ALL THE OBJECTION RECEIVED BY CONSIDERING THE ONLY COMMAN SUBJECTS CHAPTER OF CBSE AND ALL STATES IN EXAMINTION AND ADMISSION SELECTION IN CENTRAL AND STATE QUOTA NOT BY GETTING FIXED PERCENTAGE MARKS AS PREVIOUSLY 50 40% MARKS IN TEST BUT NOW ON ONLY PERCENTILE BASES MARKS OBTAINED IN NEET EXAMINATION .I DONT THINK THE SUPREME COURT WILL GRANT PERMANENT STAY ON ITS NEXT HEARING ON DATED 08-12-2011 AND THERE ARE CHANCE THAT THEY CAN SET ASIDE THE VARIOUS HIGH COURTS STAY

        1. must appreciate your work sir but your assumptions on neet ug are wrong .
          cbse has always been ready with neet but since education comes under state govt. they are the ones who really need to decide about it .
          i hope even sc will understand that no one is really opposing neet but only timing is wrong . this is what is being said by states , by students and by health ministry and considering the report of toi even mci is thinking to postpone the exam .
          no one gives a damn what mci thinks about conducting the exam and cbse is ready with aipmt also .
          it was sc which had earlier sent the states to hc and going back to sc is very foolish thing to do .
          by the way from where did you get this information of the case in sc on 8-12 ?
          because neet has been mooted by sc , it will be conducted but since no time has been given by sc , neet 2012 is hard to take place.
          i hope sc considers the problems of all states and students and then bring in their decision ……………

    1. Ministry of Health and Family Welfare CET for MBBS The Supreme Court, in Simran Jain case, has accepted the proposal of the Medical Council of India (MCI) to conduct common entrance test viz. National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) for admission to Under Graduate (UG) and Post Graduate (PG) medical courses in the country and directed the Council to take such steps as are necessary to implement the NEET. Accordingly, the Central Government has constituted a Committee to finalize the modalities for implementation of NEET. Once implemented, the NEET would be applicable to all medical colleges which come under the ambit of MCI, including for approximately 54 per cent of MBBS seats available in private medical colleges. Further, Central Board of Secondary Education, which is the agency for conducting NEET for UG, has constituted an Advisory Committee consisting of Members from all States to address the issues of admission processes prevalent in various States like reservation, medium of test, etc. This information was laid by Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad in Rajya Sabha today. SBS/ls (Release ID :77815)

  13. It is ridiculous to take exam in Only English & Hindi that too with a different syllabus.No NEET for 2 years.It should be announced at the time of entry into class XI.

    1. you are absolutely right.this time MCI has given tremendous stress to all students of 12th std. now no one is having time for new system preparation.MCI took around 3 months to decide final syllabus. how student prepare it within 6 months.

  14. KERALA A ROLE MODEL STATE FOR PRO NEET
    ========================================

    At a time when some States are indulging in nit picking to scuttle the process of NEET in 2012, Kerala stands tall as a beacon supporting NEET. In all these tumultuous time, Kerala is very clear in its thinking and stands by the decision of Central Govt, Supreme Court and MCI. In India Kerala have the maximum literacy rate and whenever any rule or Act comes into force against the well being of the people, Kerala would be the first State to oppose. At the same time, if it finds the same beneficial to people, it will be the first State to welcome and adopt. In the case of NEET, it appreciates the advantages and benefits of it and had readily adopted itself for the sake of its students.

    As everyone knows, Kerala is a non-Hindi State, its official language is Malayalam, 80% of its students study State board Syllabus in Malayalam. Its State syllabus also has difference with that of core syllabus declared by MCI. It had State PMT which was set in English and Malayalam language. The so called grievances by the opposing States were all omnipresent in Kerala too. But the State was so prudent and proactive, it saw the advantages out weighing disadvantages, hence decided to take NEET.

    In my village which is hundreds of miles away from Trivandrum, the Capital city of Kerala, the public is reasonably aware about the introduction of NEET. The institute where I am studying has been informing us the possibility of NEET in 2012. About a month back, the notice about NEET was put on the campus notice board and a copy of the same was stuck in each and every class room. In my institute each and every student is aware about NEET coming in May 2012. The institute was informed by the State education board and our institute had put up the notices in the entire campus even in canteen.

    My institute had already started to adjust the curriculum according to the NEET syllabus and in fact in the last 2 weekly tests the question paper was set tougher to prepare the students for NEET. The institute had told us very clearly that students need to prepare themselves to deal the NEET questions in English only. The Malayalam papers were withdrawn from the monthly tests to begin with.

    Kerala has 23 medical colleges in all in the State. The majority of them are private medical colleges. The Kerala Govt is so transparent that without buckling to the pressure of the pvt colleges, unlike the other opposing States, supports NEET to the hilt. Gujarat which is bigger than Kerala and which has a better GDP than Kerala has only 19 medical colleges, yet a small group of parents headed by a wealthy Doctor with the connivance of vested interest is opposing NEET in Ahmedabad.

    Among all the States, Kerala definitely stands tall and majestic. In India we have 28 States and 7 Union Territories, except 5 or 6 States all other States have accepted NEET. Whether these States participate in NEET or not, it doesn’t matter, but NEET will definitely happen and we look forward to it eagerly.

    On Behalf of all these Pro NEET States and students like me hailing from villages request the opposing States to change their minds and join NEET 2012 immediately.

    1. Mr Dinesh Kumar serves appreciation in this view as whatever he had posted on the wall, it sounds perfect. kerala always got this kind of moral values; as a state of India kerala should be given supreme position as kerala accounts a greater part in development of India
      by producing a lot of brilliant students across the state…

      1. NIT SHOULD NOT HAPPEN.. DONT BE SELF PRAISING.. THERE ARE OTHER METHODS TO IMPROVE MEDICAL EDUCATION RATHER THAN A COOMMN TEST WITH SO MANY UNCOMMON PARAMETERS

  15. Dear Srikanth, did the Maharashtra case come up for hearing today 11/11 in SC for exemption from NEET ? Pl share news if any. Thanks

  16. Please tell us whether the exam will be conducted for 2012-2013 or 2011-2012.Because they have only mentioned that it will be in 2012.god knows what are they really trying to say.

  17. If at all you want 2 conduct NEET you should first take into consideration that any of the competitive exams is always a 10+2 course.But we havent got training.Apart from that we haven’t got the information on the syllabus.And where are the books.While i have heard that one or two states are in oppose of this decision.How can one conduct this exam then

  18. I’ m not in favour of common medical entrance exam as it becme difficult for the students who will be unable 2 clear it. So, it should not be happen……………….

  19. The Education Minister of West Bengal Mr. Bratya Basu declared that West Bengal Joint Entrance Board will take the WBJEE Medical 2012. In this matter the Chief Minister Of West Bengal Miss. Mamata Banerjee sent a letter to Central Govt. This news has been published in all the Bengali Channels.

    1. TNN | Oct 30, 2011, 02.29PM IST

      “It’s time for students from Bengali-medium schools preparing for the next medical entrance test to hone up their English skills. In addition, they will now have to put in extra effort to get familiar with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) syllabus to appear for the common all-India medical test.

      Students from the state have been left in a tight spot after the Medical Council of India and the Union health ministry asked the CBSE board to conduct a common medical entrance examination, breaking away from the West Bengal Joint Entrance Examination (WBJEE) for both engineering and medical entrance in colleges.

      The common test will have multiple choice questions (MCQ) in English. For that, students will have to understand the questions. Though the Bengal government keeps on insisting that students can write the examination in vernacular, the type of the test leaves little option for that since students will only have to tick the right option.

      Students from Bengali-medium schools will now have to get acquainted with the scientific terms in addition to the difference in syllabus between the CBSE and the West Bengal Higher Secondary Council. CBSE follows National Council for Technical Education ( NCTE) books while the state council has its own syllabus. “The students from the state council will have to get acquainted with CBSE syllabus to appear for the medical test,” said a senior official.

      Caught in a bind, the Bengal government has given a nod to the Centre’s decision to conduct the common test in English. “The Centre has turned down our plea to set questions in Bengali,” said director of medical education Susanta Banerjee. Banerjee’s admission clearly points out that there is no scope taking the examination in Bengali when the test will be based on MCQs set in English.

      “There cannot be any proposition that question papers will be set in English but students can write the answers in Bengali since all the questions are MCQs. Hence, the students will only need to tick the right options given along with the questions,” said CBSE chairman Vineet Joshi.

      WBJEE board chairman Bhaskar Gupta will write a letter to higher education secretary Satish Tiwary to get a clear picture on the issue. “I have already spoken to education minister Bratya Basu on the matter. We have set the first week of November as the deadline ,” said Gupta.

      The board chairman appreciated the uncertainty among higher secondary students who are yet to know which syllabus they are to follow – CBSE or WBHS. “We have to distribute the WBJEE forms from November onwards. The government has to take decision within this time frame for the sake of students.”

      State education minister Bratya Basu said the government will take a decision soon. “I am aware of the situation. I will take up the matter with chief minister Mamata Banerjee once I receive the letter from the WBJEE board.” ”

      They just can’t wait for the deadline, this is totally unprofessional.

      1. can any member of MCI who is not from west-bengal,able to give exam from 12 text-books in bengoli-language after 6 months ? (6 books of 11th std,6 books of 12th std) if yes-take neet in english, IF NO HOW CAN YOU TAKE? students are 17 years old only. dont see them at your level. we are double or 2/3 time older.

        1. Your logic is not right in this case simply b’coz MBBS is taught in our country in English ONLY and students are suppose to be proficient in English in Higher secondary stage itself.

          1. But MBBS is not taught in Hindi. There are many examples that students appearing in state pmt in regional language, they become successful Doctors later on.

    2. Common Entrance Examination is a good idea.But before going for Common entrance the +2 syllabus in the whole country has to be unified.How can one expect that students from different states, studying different syllabus can write a common entrance Examination. This is planned only to help CBSE students. students who are in state syllabus will not get admission to Medical colleges.

  20. Today Central Govt announced NEET exam today it creates a lot of confusion mainly who is studying in Telugu Medium, this time they have to work hard.

    1. hello sir
      neet in ap has been announced amidst strong opposition…. no neet has been declare …. can u tell the source.

    1. As far as i know there will be other than NEET, two separate exams are AIIMS and JIPMER.
      MBBS and BDS seats will be filled from selected NEET candidates list.

    2. Hey rudra
      Just wait for some notification. their is still lot of confusion on neet and with the kind of opposition it is facing it will meet the same fate as neet pg……….

  21. Hi Guys,
    The medical admission scam in Karnataka is assuming wider ramifications, pl see this report in Deccan Chronicle
    http://www.deccanchronicle.com/node/63331

    As many as 120 Munna Bhais have got themselves admitted by paying huge sums. I still feel ‘Its the tip of ICEBERG’, if CBI is pressed into investigation, perhaps more scams would be unearthed. In the preliminary investigation itself, it has been found that 120 Genuine Candidates have lost their hard earned seats. I wonder how many such scams are happening in different State CETs. Its a big shame to our country.
    Central Govt, MCI & State Govts should combine and bring about absolutely transparent admission system through NEET from 2012 itself and save millions of lives in our country.

  22. Is neet really come into existance or not if then when will be it date and syllabus come due to this most of the students are in big confusion

  23. HELLO EVERYONE
    GUYS IT’S ALREADY MID OCTOBER. HOW MUCH MORE DOES MCI WISH US TO WAIT.
    EARLIER THIS YEAR MCI HAS TOLD THAT THEY WILL BE CONDUCTING NEET – PG , BUT NOW I HEAR THAT SOME COLLEGES HAVE DECLARED THEIR EXAMS FOR PG COURSES. I GUESS NEET – UG WILL MEET THE SAME FATE . THOUGH SOME STATES HAVE STARTED SUPPORTING NEET THEIR IS STILL NO SUPPORT FROM GUJARAT, TAMIL NADU, KARANATAKA, ASSAM AND FEW OTHERS.
    I WOULD SUGGEST THAT INSTEAD OF WASTING TIME WE START PREPARING OUR 11 AND 12 SYLLABUS FROM NCERT.

    1. i agree with u…. how can anyone declare neet all of sudden…infact the declaration is not confirmed…this is creating a lot of fuss in our minds….they need to settle things earlier……or the students with less strng will power will end up hanging themselves to death

      1. Hi Mr.Srikanth,

        Thanks for short,specific and clear reply.Otherwise there was confusion created by somebody’s post giving a specific date for NEET as 13th.May!!!!!!.

  24. Hello sir,

    There are still some confusions in Andhra pradesh whether it is going to be NEET or EAMCET.Can you please clarify this confusion and Is the syllabus given in the MCI website confirmed?

    1. Hi Vindhya,
      AP has already notified that there wont be EAMCET in 2012. Pl prepare for NEET as per syllabus released by MCI.

  25. it wud be much n more convenient n happier if u declare the date nd year of the neet xam…much earlier so that we can have our books bought…n start on dem…plz…do it fast…

  26. HELLO AGAIN TO EVERYONE

    GUYS THIS IS A FORUM WHERE EVERYONE IS ALLOWED TO WRITE WHAT THEY WANT. THAT IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN DOING. BUT THEIR ARE MANY WHO HAS STARTED MAKING PERSONAL WHO HAVE STARTED MAKING PERSONAL COMMENTS. IF I HAVE HURT ANYBODY ON THIS SITE THEN I ‘AM SORRY FOR IT.
    WE ALL HERE WANT A FAIR EXAM TO BE CONDUCTED. OUR GOALS ARE SAME JUST METHODS ARE DIFFERENT SO WHY TO FIGHT. LET ME START IT FIRST. I APOLOGISE TO U RAMESH IF I HAVE SAID ANYTHING BAD TO U. I JUST LOST MY TEMPER AFTER READING YOUR LAST POST IN WHICH U COMPARED US TO DOGS.

    TO ALL NEET SUPPORTING STUDENTS

    ALL OF U HAVE BEEN OPPOSING MY POINTS BY TALKING ABOUT CORRUPTION. BUT PEOPLE THE WAY THINGA GO IN INDIA NEET WILL ALSO GET CORRUPTED(LOOK AT AIEEE). IT IS NOT THE SOLUTION. THEN GOVT. WILL BRING ANOTHER CHANGE . INSTEAD PUT MORE SECURITY AT AIPMT STATE LEVEL.

    I ALSO GET FRUSTRATED WHEN I HEAR ABOUT FALSE ADMISSIONS BEING MADE IN PVT. UNIVERSITIES. BUT BRINGING THEM UNDER AIPMT IS SAME AS BRINGING THEM UNDER NEET. BRING THESE EXAMS UNDER RTI AND LOKPAL BILL SO THAT THEY BECOME MORE TRANSPARENT.

    STEPS LIKE
    a. Percentile system in evaluation.
    b. It is thinking of lowering the minimum eligibility
    c. Negative marking is being withdrawn.
    IF THESE CHANGES ARE IN UNDER AIPMT AND STATE PMT THEN ALSO IT WILL BENEFIT TO EVERYONE.

    I HERE SUPPORT ONLY TWO EXAMS AIPMT( WITH PVT. COLLEGES IN IT) AND STATE PMT. THIS WILL SOLVE THE PROB;EM OF MANY EXAMS.

    PEOPLE, NEET IN 2012 WILL CAUSE PROBLEM TO MANY BUT THE WAY I’AM SAYING IT , IT WILL BE BENEFICIAL TO ALL.

    AGAIN PLEASE ALL BE POLITE.

    1. HI.I’M FROM KARNATAKA.WHAT U R SAYING IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.IT MIGHT BE EASY AND BENEFICIAL TO CENTRAL SYLLABUS BUT WHAT ABOUT STATE SYLLABUS STUDENTS.IT WIL BE VERY DIFFICULT AND COMPLICATED TO US.JUST THINK ABOUT IT.THERE ARE JUST FEW MONTHS LEFT OUT.HOW ABOUT OUR PREPARATIONS FOR PUE BOARD EXAM AND WHERE’S THE TIME TO PREPARE FOR NEET EXAM.GOD ALONE CAN SAVE ME……….

  27. hey guys CAREER MITRA ITSELF HAVE SO MUCH DIVERSITY IN IT . THERE ARE SO MANY DISCUSSIONS GOING ON IN THIS BLOG. SORRY I’AM LATE ON THIS PART OF CAREERMITRA. I WILL AGAIN REPEAT WHAT I HAVE BEEN SAYING ON OTHER OARTS.
    Actually where I live there are many who dont’t support it in 2012. IT SHOULD TAKE PLACE IN 2014.
    My question is “WHY IS IT NEEDED?”
    People say that it will bring transparency in selection of students in private medical college. I agree with it . but if this is the case then instead of making one exam bring private medical colleges under aipmt and increase the seats in aipmt. WHY DO WE HAVE TO BRING ALL STATE PMT UNDER ONE EXAM and cause trouble for our brothers and sisters in state board schools. If corruption takes place in state pmts then it can take place in neet also as both are run by the govt. .
    Secondly if 85% students will be taken from state only then why the hell is it taking place. whats the use of it if no. of seats remain the same.
    My third point is that it is already october , we have started preparing for pre boards. W hen will we prepare for the changed syllabus.
    lets face the facts guys that india is a diverse countru and that right now it is not ready for a common entrance test . We cannot compare chattisgarh and jharkhand with kerala or maharashtra.
    Many are saying its a rich daddy qouta in medical. but if neet takes place then it will be again it will a rich daddy quota because only rich people will be able to provide quality education to compete at all india level. india is not a develop country to have a common entrance test .We should first make the level of education same and then talk of common tests.
    instead of making it a common test bring private medical colleges under government security.
    TO ALL THOSE SUPPORTING IT RIGHT NOW DON’T BE SELFISH AND THINK OF EVERYBODY RATHER THAN C.B.S.E . STUDENTS.
    I’AM MYSELF A C.B.S.E. STUDENT.
    HEY SAM IA SUPPORT YOU .KEEP COMMENTING.
    IF ANYONE HAS A PROBLEM WITH WHAT I’AM SAYING THEN DO REPLY(ESPECIALLY RAMESH AND SRIKANTH SIR).
    ALSO ONE MORE THING , THERE ARE MANY WHO STILL DON”T USE INTERNET IN INDIA THEREFORE MCI DID NOT RECEIVE MUCH OPPOSITION TO IT.

    1. Friend,aim of neet is not just ending corruption.It is aiming at an overall development of medical education in india which is only possible if so many seats which are going vacant due to diff state exams are in stead filled up by students of according merit.Neet also puts an end to respective state councils exercising all powers of admission in medical colleges through corrupt and defunct means.And as for the students,who are peparing for aipmt,the syllabus has only reduced.For those who are following state board syllabus,there still remains a reservation of 85% for respective states.Now there are objections raised for making ques papers in regional languages.My ques is how many medical colleges in india teach in regional languages??Now for negative marking,i feel this was the only wrong move adopted by mci and cbse as if u cut off the minimum selection criteria so why cut down on negative marks.This will perhaps be the only compromise with mereit if it at all is implemented.

  28. I totally agree u gazal…it is absolutly correct,n candid way to minimise state crrption…we faced it…n max of the studnt who can make their way frm hardwrk r happy with it … Baki jo yaha faltu k arguments me lge hai they’ll keep watching the faces…besties 2 all…

    1. HELLO ANKIT
      PEHLE YAAR PLZ DOSRON KE VIEWS KO FALTU NA KAHO . THEY ALSO ARE MEDICAL ASPIRANTS JUST LIKE U.
      REGARDING GAZALA HIS PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE WITH CORRUPTION WITH PVT. MEDICALCOLLEGES . PLZ GO THROUGH WHAT IHAVE WRITTEN IN MY ABOVE COMMENTS . I FEEL BY DOING ALL THAT WE ARE SOLVING THE CORRUPTION ISSUE AS WELL AS PROBLEM OF STATE BOARD STUDENTS.

  29. Hello everyone,
    i m here to tell u about an event which recently took place with one of my friend……She went to take admission in ‘I CARE MEDICAL COLLEGE N HOSPITAL,HALDIA’ in kolkata.it is a private college n the hospital is governmental……n this college has been recognized by MCI.they asked for a handsome donation above the highly elevated fee printed in its prospectus…..she couldn’t pay so,cannot get admitted in the college…..There is a similar condition in almost all the private colleges in our country.Not only this….since the government colleges of various states cannot take donation,they have adopted a different method….they sell the question papers just before exams….
    we often here that resources should be properly utilized…… are the seats in these colleges being appropriately utilized??? …..obviously NO…
    if not, than why a just n fair system has not been introduced till now?……if MCI is trying to make an improvement now…..why is it facing so much of oppositions?..

    i understand the problems of state board students…some of the states are following different syllabus presently….
    but most of the states leaving a few have syllabus similar to NCERT …..NEET can include these states and private n deemed universities for 2012,before it can be implemented nation wide from 2013 and thereafter…..
    i will like your responses …thankyou

    1. HI AGAIN GAZALA
      IT IS REALLY FRUSTATING THAT DUMB RICH STUDENTS TAKE SEATS WHICH MERITIOUS STUDENTS DESERVE. BUT THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT STATE PMT SHOULD BE REMOVED.
      PLZ GO THROUGH MY ABOVE POINTS.
      ALL STATES SHOULD BE BROUGHT TOGETHER UNDER NEET OR ELSE NO. OF SEATS WILL REDUCE.

  30. Can anyone please tell me if NEET will happen in tamil nadu?And even if it happens,aren’t the students studying in state board at a loss?

    1. Hi Nisha,
      For Gods sake NEET should happen not only in Tamilnadu but in the entire country. Please read news about the scam in Bangalore ( COMEDK medical test) reported in Deccan Herald and reproduced in the forum under other headings.
      In Tamilnadu too, in 2010, 63 persons were caught applying with Bogus Mark sheets. I wonder how many got through without being caught or escaped using influence. If these malpractices have to stop, then NEET is the only solution.
      In Tamilnadu, there are several pvt medical colleges and deemed universities being owned by politicians, this is the reason why NEET is being opposed by the politicians controlling the Govt.

      Since there is sufficient time to prepare for the exam and also MCI is planning to follow the percentile system in NEET and the State quota of 85% intact, the State Board students will not be affected by NEET. In fact they would be benefitted a lot. Hence, all Tamilians should support NEET and urge the Govt to embrace NEET for the benefit of the common public.

      Tamilnadu at present is setting a BAD EXAMPLE in our country by opposing NEET. It should change its attitude and be part of national movement in adopting NEET from 2012.

        1. Nisha….currently 15% seats of all govt colleges goes to Central pool and the remaining 85% were allotted by the respective State Govts on the basis of State CET. In Tamilnadu, the State quota was filled on the basis of Plus 2 marks.
          Even if NEET is implemented, the State continues to govern the State quota of 85% but on the basis of rankings in NEET which would be provided by MCI.
          NEET would declare National and State rank for each candidate. The national rank will be applicable to Central Govt medical colleges and State rank for the respective state medical colleges. So the idea is, the State students need not worry about losing seats to the other state candidates.

      1. R THENAVAN THEIR ARE VARIOUS WAYS TO STOP THESE SCAMS . NEET DEFINATELY IS NOT A GOOD ANSWER TO THESE. PLUS TAKE CASE OF AIEEE WHERE SCAMS STILL OCCUR.

    2. Dear nisha
      you need not worry tamilnadu government has already obtained stay and mci has also conceded except tamilnadu all state boards have consented. The real problem is whether the mbbs degree of tamilnadu medical colleges will be recognized by mci

  31. These are rumors rather than a news.
    NEET will carry on or not it will be decided within few weeks.
    So why wasting time on “NEET NEVER BE POSSIBLE” Or something else.
    MCI final and official decision is the ultimate decision.
    Wait and watch.

  32. john & ramesh gupta you are like pig rubbish . You totally ignorance about indian diversity system .
    Once again I say you
    NEET UG never possible in 2012 . NEET UG will cancel before next friday. news has leak from MCI sources .
    And you want to need to read news papers
    About protest of NEET UG . Once again I say you india is democrats country . But you totally mad and idiot mentality disorderly you sufferer with clinfelter syndrome .

    State to move SC on medical CET Sep 29, 2011, 06.15AM IST TNN [ Sanjeev Shivadekar ] MUMBAI: Maharashtra is up in arms against the
    Centre’s move to introduce a common examination
    for the country’s medical colleges next year. The
    state education department has decided to
    challenge the decision in the Supreme Court. Maharashtra is not alone in opposing the National
    Eligibility-Cum-Entrance Test (NEET). Gujarat and
    Tamil Nadu, too, are against an umbrella selection
    procedure for MBBS seats. Medical education minister Dr Vijaykumar Gavit said:
    “We are not against the NEET per se. Our demand is
    that the Union government should start conducting
    the test two years after framing a common
    curriculum for physics, biology and chemistry for
    standards XI and XII. But the Centre is keen on going ahead with its plans to hold NEET for the
    2012-13 session. Therefore Maharashtra has
    decided to oppose it. “About filing a case in the SC, I am discussing it over
    with chief minister Prithviraj Chavan.” At present, the state holds the Maharashtra Health
    and Technology Common Entrance Test (MHT-CET)
    for admissions in medical, engineering and
    pharmacy undergraduate courses. An education department official said the Medical
    Council of India (MCI) should go slow on
    administering NEET. “The MCI has uploaded the
    core syllabus for NEET on its website. Going
    through it, students in Maharashtra have become
    concerned about differences with the syllabus prescribed in the state.”

    1. Hey Sam, you dirty swine, are u not aware that Supreme Court was the one who ordered NEET first. Then MCI developed it and it was later approved by Central Govt incl Ministry of Health.
      You stupid fellow, this issue was already discussed by Supreme Court with all the State representatives. MCI had impleaded all the States in this issue and Supreme court heard all the States before it decided in favour of NEET.
      You idiot, understand that this is all Political Drama enacted by the State to make stupid fellow like you to believe that the Govt is innocent. Go & ask any sane. learned and erudite Person who will clarify your ignorance.
      Filing case in supreme court against supreme court verdict is a useless exercise and an EYE WASH. It is like making you mad dog as a saint, will it happen?? You better understand you thick headed asshole.
      Moreover, Maharashtra is ruled by congress govt headed by Mr.Prithviraj Chavan. How he will fight Congress Govt in the Centre??? These are all political games, which will not reach your thick skull and mosquito brain.
      You wait & see, all this will fizzle out and NEET will become a reality in 2012. At that time, we will have a hearty laugh at you and you will be licking your wounds. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  33. Members of the Tamil Nadu Medical Students’ Association have protested the proposed introduction of the National-Eligibilty-Cum-Entrance Test for admissions to MBBS and post-graduate medical courses from 2012.

    While the proposed aim was to integrate the various entrance exams being held all over the country into one single test to make it convenient for students, the move faces opposition from various States. While students can take the All-India entrance exams for various central medical colleges, each State has its own method of admitting students to medical courses. Tamil Nadu, for instance, has done away with entrance test, making do with a weighted average of main subjects in the class XII final examination.

    Speaking to media persons today, representatives of the Association said having a single entrance test for admissions to all colleges would interfere with the State’s well-established system. Besides, it would put students from the State and Matriculation Boards at a definite disadvantage, while placing Central Board students at a better position.

    They also expressed fears that by fixing a ‘minimum eligibility score,’ NEET would take away the benefits currently enjoyed by SC/ST/MBC and BC students, Kamaraj, Association member, said.

    As far as Post Graduate NEET examination is concerned, service candidates who now enjoy a marginal advantage in recognition of their work in serving with the government would lose that edge.

    1. I wonder how and why a medical student association has to oppose NEET-UG, when these so called students should be either doing MBBS or Post graduate courses. It would have been proper if any school students association opposes NEET. First of all the medico union does not have any locus standi to oppose NEET-UG at least. The medico union has not pointed out any solid reason(s) for its opposition.
      a. Do they know that in several rural areas of Tamilnadu the copying in exams is so rampant that how such marks could be relied for selection.
      b. Do they know that in 2010, 63 candidates who applied for MBBS had produced BOGUS HSC marksheets???
      c. do they know that ever since Tamilnadu cancelled entrance exams in 2007, the MGR University which is governing medical education has awarded grace marks as much as 45 marks to about 545 students to pass their semester exams??? It is a clear indication that the students selected on the basis of marks have failed miserably in performing in MBBS course. May be these medoco assn guys are among the beneficiaries of the university’s benevolence.
      d. Do these guys know that this Bogus marksheets are on the prowl since 2007 after Tamilnadu Govt canceled the entrance exams???

      All these anomalies would not have been there, if only a proper entrance exam was there in place in Tamilnadu. The students who follow blindly studying in rote system can be good PARROTS and not good doctors. Entire country is suffering due to lack of good doctors. Everywhere we see people are being exploited by these so called half baked doctors. IF all these have to change then we need a good selection process to select merit candidates. At this juncture, only NEET can provide the solution and we all should support.
      It is quite apparent that this medical association could be a proxy to some vested interest who is against the NEET, may be a private or deemed medical college.
      WHOEVER FROM TAMILNADU WHO IS READING THIS POST SHOULD TAKE IT TO THE NOTICE OF THIS ASSOCIATION, B’COZ I COULD NOT FIND THEIR WHEREABOUTS IN THE WEB. MAY BE IT IS A SHADOW UNION OR A GHOST UNION.

      1. that is the case with tamilnadu only all other states have their own entrances for admission into medical colleges i wonder how can the theory examination ever reflect a students talent and they could not make up for their lapse if they dont perform well once and people their are not used to entrance exam so a common entrance at once would panic students corruption can be eroded off through entrance exam let me tell you the entrance exam in andhra pradesh was introduced during the reign of ex chief minister sri ntr garu to bring about the tranparency and the chances of corruption of malpractise or corruption is hardly possible with an entrance exam

        1. the doctors of tamilnadu are well -versed in their profession .there is no need for the NEET for the students of tamilnadu now as they come from poor and illiterate family .if NEET is conducted there will be no chance of getting a medical seat at any medical colleges across the nation .is the profession of doctor only for rich family students ?beside that students of tamilnadu studying only their sate board syllable syllabus .if we want our nation become number one in the world ,all students from rural villages should get higher education .so what is your suggestion about that ?

    BHUBANESWAR: Medical students preparing for Orissa Joint Entrance Examination (OJEE) need to re-plan their schedule, as the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET), tentatively scheduled for May 13, will replace OJEE for admission into undergraduate medical courses in the state in 2012.

    “I can now confirm that there will be no entrance at the state level for undergraduate medical courses next time. Students will be drawn from the NEET merit list for all medical colleges,” said Dr Sitaram Mahapatra, joint director of medical education and training. For other professional courses such as engineering, MBA and MCA, the OJEE will continue as it stands, he said.

    Dr Mahapatra, who represented Orissa at a meeting to finalise NEET at New Delhi on September 23, said NEET will draw separate merit lists for each state from among the state domiciles, keeping in mind various reservations for 85% seats in medical colleges. For the rest 15% seats and Union government colleges, which are filled up from the all-India quota, an all-India merit list will be drawn.

    OJEE authorities will conduct counseling for the 85% seats from among the state merit list, while a centralized counselling will be drawn for the 15% seats from the all-India merit list in New Delhi.

    Dr Mahapatra, who is also the OJEE vice-chairman, said the Indian Medical Council and Central Board of Secondary Education will work on a percentile system to ensure that each state merit list comprises sufficient students from their respective domicile to fill up their seats. “It was our biggest concern because we thought enough students from our state may not qualify the all-India test,” Dr Mahapatra said.

    MCI will also work on a uniform syllabus and model question papers for the test. NEET will have 180 questions, comprising 45 each from physics, chemistry, botany and zoology. The test will be of 180 minutes duration with centres in all district headquarters, Dr Mahapatra said.

    Applications, both online and offline, for NEET will tentatively start in the second week of December and will continue till second week of January. Students would receive their admit cards by second week of April. After the test on May 13, results will be published in June 2012, the OJEE vice-chairman said.

    Dr Mahapatra said the state government has requested the Central government to make it mandatory for students of other states, who will take admission for the 15% seats, to give an undertaking that they will serve in rural areas of the state for two years. There is already such a system for students of state domicile

  42. This Sam has gone insane. If any of his friends are here in this forum, I appeal to them to take this guy to a mental hospital and get him cured. He cannot be allowed to write rubbish and fill this forum with SPAM.

    1. NEET ug never hold in future …..
      Assam court finds MBBS admission criterion
      irrational 25 Sep, 2011, 1908 hrs IST, IANS AGARTALA: The Gauhati High Court has found the
      Medical Council of India (MCI) eligibility criterion for
      MBBS aspirants from the scheduled castes and
      tribes “irrational and in violation of Article 14 of the
      Indian Constitution”, officials said Sunday. According to MCI regulations, MBBS aspirants from
      these categories must secure at least 40 percent
      marks in the combined competitive examinations
      or joint entrance examinations (JEE). The union
      health ministry and the MCI had earlier refused to
      further relax the criterion for northeastern tribes and scheduled caste students. A senior Tripura health department official said
      around 31 MBBS seats were lying vacant in the
      government-run medical college in Agartala and in
      the Tripura quota in other states because no
      student secured the minimum in the JEE this year in
      the state. Some students and guardians have filed a writ
      petition in the Gauhati High Court against the MCI
      regulations. “The High Court has asked the authorities to admit
      those students in the MBBS courses within a week
      against their respective quota of seats,” the official
      said, quoting the court order passed Friday in
      Guwahati. “The division bench of the court, comprising I.A.
      Ansari and C.R. Sarma, said in their ruling that state
      secondary board examination results were
      sufficient,” the official said. “Though the MCI regulations had been upheld by
      the Supreme Court in its various verdicts, the fact of
      the matter remains that in the decisions, cited and
      relied upon, the constitutionality of the regulation
      have been put to challenge,” the court is reported
      as saying. “When the issue has not specifically been raised
      and has not been decided, the constitutionality of
      the MCI’s regulation remains open for challenge on
      the ground of its irrationality,” the high court said. Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad,
      responding to a letter of Tripura Chief Minister
      Manik Sarkar, has communicated the centre’s
      decision to follow the MCI guidelines. Azad had said: “Though the health ministry agrees
      in principle that there is need to make enabling
      conditions to encourage the underprivileged
      sections of the society, so far as medical education
      is concerned, it is felt that diluting the qualifying
      criteria would neither be feasible not desirable.”

  43. I just can’t figure it out that why one should bother about the medium of the paper, all the students those will be selected for the professional course, going to continue his/her studies with English only.

    So without bothering these things one should try to acclimatize himself with English, start preparing with English only.

    MCI is taking too much time, we are facing a big question mark .

    Hope it will resolve fast, At least there is no room for confusion, NEET-UG 2012 Full And Final.

    1. SC rejects CBSE’s plea for combined AIPMT
      and
      AIEEE exam Sep 24, 2011,

      NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Friday shelved
      an ambitious student-friendly initiative from the
      HRD ministry through the Central Board of
      Secondary Education (CBSE) proposing to integrate

      the AIPMT and AIEEE into a single entrance test for
      admissions to undergraduate medical and engineering courses. While the All India Pre-Medical/Pre-Dental Entrance
      Examination (AIPMT) is conducted to fill 15% seats
      in MBBS/BDS courses in government medical and
      dental colleges against the all-India quota, the All
      India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) is
      for drawing up a combined merit list for a different category of engineering colleges. CBSE conducts
      both AIPMT and AIEEE every year. A bench of Justices R V Raveendran and A K
      Patnaik, which entertained the CBSE’s proposal and
      had sought the views of the health ministry for
      nttpearly a year, dismissed the education regulator’s
      plea saying there was no unanimity. When CBSE counsel requested for some more time
      to iron out the differences with other stakeholders,
      the bench said that unanimity and a solution had to
      be found within the government and the court was
      not the forum. The bench had earlier appreciated the noble
      intentions behind the move, that is to relieve the
      students from appearing in multiple entrance
      examinations, but the health ministry had said a
      common test for medical and engineering courses
      would create confusion and chaos in the merit list. The CBSE had said that amalgamation of AIPMT and
      AIEEE would relieve students and their parents of a
      lot of stress both physical and financial. The CBSE in its application had said that its
      governing body meeting had several times
      recorded that “members of the committee had
      desired that both the AIPMT and AIEEE, which are
      conducted by CBSE, may be integrated keeping in
      view the interest of the candidates to enable them to get admission in medical/dental and engineering
      through a single entrance examination”. Consequent to the recommendation of the
      governing body, a meeting of officials of HRD,
      Medical Council of India and Directorate General of
      Health Services, National Institute of Technology,
      Kurukshetra, and CBSE was held on June 7, 2010.
      In this meeting, it was decided to amalgamate AIPMT and AIEEE.

      1. SAM,please do something and stop this neet,students of wbchse will not get chance in that entrance…the major population of our state will be deprived from studying MBBS,an sorry to say but its true most of the CBSE students who are majorly not BENGALI ES,and represent hardly 5-10 percent of the students will be benefited by this decision.In one sense its just the other name of making our state board worthless as the syllabus published by MCI differ in most directions from our state syllabus.And in another hand they are not g going to make questions in regional languages with some silly excuses,which is going to be another dilemma for the state pupils .They are actually willing to centralize this higher education within the hands of a few rich persons.Other wise don’t you find it ridiculous,In a country where more than 225 language,more than 20 separate state board exhibit with their separate syllabus,how can one talk of such common entrance test without bringing the whole education system under common syllabus and curriculum…..It smells irrational and strange..God Knows

    1. it is big loss for state board student . Problem not resolving

      Next yr, medical entrance exam questions
      won’t be in Bengali
      Sat Sep 24
      Kolkata:
      Next year , students from West Bengal will not get question papers in Bengali when they will
      appear for the combined medical test for
      admissions to medical colleges across the country.
      In a meeting with Medical Council of India (MCI),
      representatives from West Bengal were told that
      question papers will not be made available in
      Bengali as the exams will be conducted in only two
      languages — Hindi and English. “The question papers will not be available in
      Bengali or any other regional languages. It will be
      made available only in English and Hindi,” Utpal
      Dutta, principal of Calcutta Medical College, who took part
      in today’s meeting told The Indian Express. However, the cut-off marks for entry to the medical
      colleges will be done away with. Earlier, a student
      had to secure 50 per cent aggregate to appear for
      the medical entrance examination in the country.
      From now on, there will be no such limit. Till this year, students from the state had the
      privilege of getting question papers in Bengali
      when they appeared for the state Joint Entrance
      Examination (JEE). Experts say, that a part of JEE
      question paper was subjective and hence language
      skills were required to an extent. But as the Common Entrance Test will have multiple choice
      questions, language would not make much of a
      difference.

  44. today my friend asked cbse about aipmt 12 the cbse official said that there is no aipmt in 2012. mci alredy anounce neet for 2012.and probability is 110%.so prepare for neet 12 not aipmt.

    1. not yet generally the notifications of national entrances come during the first half of october so we will have to wait

  46. Sir,
    Please let me know when the MCI will lunch the new syllabus & sample question papers for NEET-UG in it’s website?I am getting confusion on the fact whether the level of questions shall be increased to such a level as it is for IIT-JEE or will remain the same as it was for AIPMT?As this fact plays an important role,MCI should confirm this topic as soon as possible.If anybody has any information regarding this then please let me know because i am preparing for my Board Exam as well.Thank you.

    1. as total question will be 250(phy-75,chem-75, bio-100) & time is 3HRS so level of question will be down like AFMC,JIPMER.
      only speed with accuracy will play amajor rple.

  47. Education is one sector which should be free of Politics, corruption, favouritism, irregularities, Graft, all other Vices etc., b’coz the future of India lies in the quality of education we provide to the Youth of India. Until and unless the Govt ensures a quality and transparent education in the country, we cant hope to see a good society in the future. Central Govt is rightly bringing in the reforms in educational sector. One such reform is NEET for medical admissions and the other one NAT for Engineering admissions.
    The need of the hour is that all deserving merited students should get admitted in professional colleges without getting entangled by Greedy Private Colleges, Usurping Politicians, corrupt Touts etc. The dreams of merited students should be preserved at any cost. Towards this direction, the only hope left for is by adopting NEET & NIT.
    Whenever a new system is introduced there will be several hurdles and opposition. However, the system will overcome the resistance and the designs of vested interests and evil forces. Take For eg. Jan Lokpal Bill, despite protests from various quarters, it has sailed so many barriers and was successfully introduced in the parliament. For sure this bill will be passed very soon and all of us would see the emergence of Lokpal which would become a powerful tool in checking the corruption in our country. There may be some teething problems initially, but Lokpal would surely prevail in 2012 and so does NEET in 2012. No one can stop these 2 getting implemented next year.
    Jai Hind!!!!

    1. u r very right but ppl related state medical test are earning money by high level corruption along with coaching which not only leak paper but give them answer sheet 1oe 2days before as i read in paper, yahoo answer ,blog for example Delhi PMT same thing happened many student suffered finaly CBI INVESTIGATION ordered.

      NEET has come hope for brilliant student they are not disturbing state seat as it will remain reserved for state 85/% as it was. only it will conduct fair test which u have to qualify so atleast we can see good quality student in pvt college too in my opnion it shaoild happen from 2012 syllabus is not a big issue it can be sorted out. second issue of language at any cost u have to learn english if u want to be docter/engineer these course can not be taught in local language let it be gujrati , tamil, marathi however mci is giving option for hindi. neet will happen sure it will happen.

  48. don’t worry guys,
    keep ur study well…………
    neet will not possible in any condition in 2012
    it will coming in 2013 or 2014, many states & private, deemed college oppose this because neet will decrease their annual income.
    lots of political issue & state board criteria for eligibility is differ from central level.
    september is atleast gone & no rules and proper schedule is available, the academic session is start in every states also is the big reason about neet .
    if neet happened in 2012 it creates a major problem to 12 th stanard student & state board .
    i have no problem with any type of exam but in my opinion this exam create a big pressure in every medical aspirant.

  50. It is nice to have a common entrance test but it is equally important to make it true and fair. What are the checks and controls on malpractices which MCI or CBSE has to apply in Medical Entrance tests, is an important question that must also be given serious thought. Some such malpractices are as follows :
    Bogus domicile to fill their forms from more than one state e.g. Some students do regular coaching classes in Kota (Rajsthan) but show their regular admission in some school registered in Delhi to be eligible for DUMET. In such cases some schools and coachings are collobrating.
    Rackets where brilliant students of MBBS are paid to write exams at certain pre decided centres in the names of other students where centres are also collaborating.
    Leaking of exam paper and sold at high prices to a few, just one day in advance.

    Goodbye IIT-JEE; 1 test from 2013
    Published: Thursday, Sep 15, 2011, 8:30 IST | Updated: Thursday, Sep 15, 2011, 0:44 IST
    By Vineeta Pandey | Place: New Delhi | Agency: DNA

    The government will scrap all engineering entrance exams from 2013-14. It has also come up with a novel idea of hiking tuition fees: students will not feel the pinch during the course of study, but they will have to pay up once they get a job.

    Currently, various state boards and institutions, including the IITs, conduct at least 150 entrance exams every year. The government decided to dump all such exams, including the IIT-JEE and the AIEEE, at a meeting of IIT Council (IIT directors) and officials from the ministry of human resource development (HRD). Union HRD minister Kapil Sibal chaired the meeting.

    “There will be one merit list. Institutes, including the IITs, will have to pick up students from this list,” Sibal said. “The list will be based on Std 12 marks and the entrance test results. Also, students will be counselled before they choose a course.” This test will be similar to the common entrance exam for medical courses beginning next year.

    While rejecting the report of the Anil Kakodkar Committee that had suggested a five-fold fee hike for IITs (BTech and MTech programmes), the government, in principle, approved a fee hike. Sibal said students would continue paying Rs50,000 as annual fee, but they would have to “pay back” the difference money — the fee paid by a student and the money spent on him by an IIT — once they get a job.

    Those from the SC/ST and OBC categories and students going for higher education or joining an IIT faculty would be exempted from this policy. The exemption would encourage students to take up research work and meet the faculty shortage, Sibal said.
    l Turn to p13

    “At present, the fees are nominal because of government subsidy,” he said. “The actual cost works out to nearly Rs6-8 lakh per student. Students can surely pay back this amount in easy instalments, considering the plush jobs they land with once they get their degrees.”

    But the government wants a foolproof system in place to ensure students pay back the difference money. The degrees, which will soon be in a DMAT format, will reflect the difference money as loan and employers will be asked to deduct it from a student’s salary and deposit it with the government.

    The government knows that several states might oppose its plan of a common entrance test for engineering courses because a large chunk of engineering colleges comes under state purview.

    But it is confident of having the support of state governments because of the Supreme Court order in favour of a common entrance exam for medical courses. Sibal said that the Centre would discuss the matter with all state education ministers and representatives of all state boards.

  56. READ THE TIMES OF INDIA TO DAY
    you can under standard the possiblety on NEET ug in 2012.
    many state government not accept MCI proposal .
    Gujarat can join NEET by 2013 The Gujarat government has said that it can join the
    National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET), the
    common medical entrance exam for all medical
    colleges proposed by Medical Council of India (MCI)
    from 2013. Principal health secretary Rajesh
    Kishore said, “The state has introduced new syllabus in class XI from this year which is at par
    with the central board syllabus. Students will now
    be able to compete better with other students

    1. @Sam,
      What do you expect from Gujarat under the BJP Governance. They would oppose all the moves from the UPA Govt, whether good or bad. By opposing it will not succeed stopping NEET. NEET is a reality in 2012 especially when majority of State Govts support NEET.
      From the news, the msg one gets is, Gujarat supports NEET, but wants to take it in 2013. This dispute will be sorted out by MCI and Supreme court.
      NEET would definitely be there in 2012 and nobody can stop it.

    2. who is sure about holding of NEETug in 2012.

      Please read IBNLIVE.COM news
      After Jaya, more CMs attack entrance test .
      IBNLive.com – 11 hours ago
      NEW DELHI: As if taking a cue from Tamil Nadu ChiefMinister J Jayalalithaa, who was the first to write to
      the PM against the Medical Council of India’s
      (MCI) decision to hold a common entrance test (CET), more chief ministers are now opposing the … So ramesh and gupta you have thought like child . Make mature for future .You don’t know about political power . Many state cm never accept MCI proposal so NEET ug impossible . Understood .

      1. > SAM,
        This is a old news. Reprinted by IBN.
        W Bengal has already given its ok for NEET. Gujarat also has given ok for NEET in 2013. Tamilnadu has lot of pvt medical colleges owned by politicians who are protesting NEET. Central Govt will not listen to Tamilnadu and its corrupt politicians. No one can stop NEET, it will become a reality in 2012. Dont have any doubts. Start preparing for NEET now onwards at least……
        If you are a student aspiring for MBBS, first you go learn English properly. |Secondly, stop imagining thinkgs. You have become a laughing stock in this forum…..hahahaha….

          1. > SAM,
            This news was reported after W Bengal CM issued a statement protesting NEET. After issuing protest,she had sent a team to Delhi to discuss with MCI & Centre about NEET. After the meeting, the delegation from Bengal had accepted NEET. As of now except Tamilnadu all other States have agreed to NEET. Tamilnadu does not have any option but to accept in the light of Supreme court ruling.
            You have to go by the chronology of events rather than going by the date of reporting. Thats why I said your news is old. Dont be stupid, use your thick head to understand events taking place around you.

  57. ramesh ¡ NEET never possible
    read the new news ten times with full concentration
    Tamil Nadu, which has been opposing the idea ever
    since it was mooted last year, still opposed it. The state has most of the private medical colleges. Earlier, former chief minister K. Karunanidhi had also written to the Union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad that he was “astonished” by the notification. The Tamil Nadu government later got it stayed from the Madras high court. Dr Lal, however, said that things are different now. “We are going by the orders of the court, so all the states must have to come to a consensus,” Officials say that issues concerning those states opposing the proposal will be sorted out soon. “States like Gujarat and Bengal had issues with the language of the paper as we had originally planned
    to start the exam in English and Hindi only.

    1. Hey Sam,
      I think you have gone nuts. You better consult a Psychiatrist. Gujarat and W Bengal had objections with respect to State Quota and language. These issues were petty issues which would be sorted out. Which means that NEET question papers will be in Bengali and Gujrati. Regarding quota, States have been assured that 85% quota would be retained by the States to allot seats on the basis of NEET ranks. West Bengal Secretary had already conveyed his acceptance to MCI to hold NEET.
      Regarding, Tamilnadu, the earlier State Govt headed by Karunanidhi had opposed NEET and obtained stay order in Madras High Court. At that time, DMK was part of UPA in the Centre and due to his pressure, the Central Govt opposed NEET last year i.e. in 2011. But things have changed now. DMK is out of power now and Central Govt will not listen to Karunanidhi any more. Karunanidhi cannot even save his daughter from going to Tihar Jail, how he can oppose NEET now??? Moreover, Supreme court had given its final decision later in favour of NEET. Here after wards Tamilnadu has no option than to accept for NEET.
      Hope you understand ENGLISH!!!!

      Pl go & show this article to a person who can understand ENGLISH and he will explain you to understand. I pity you, you are so IGNORANT about democracy and politics and Indian Constiution 😛

        1. Hi Dr,
          AP was not part of AIPMT. Earlier,the entire 100% of seats were admitted on the basis of AP-CET and AP students were not eligible to share the national quota. Now that AP decided to be part of NEET, the students would be given a National and State rank. The State rank holders would claim 85% of the Total seats in AP and the remaining seats would be available under the national quota. A student based on his ranking can appear both in national as well as State counselling to choose his best choice.

        2. hi ramesh, thanks for the quick reply,will my daughter be eligible to take a seat anywhere in india, and whats the percentage of seats,she will be eligible for in gen category…………………and hasNEET P.G. officially anounced?

          1. Hi Dr.,
            15% of all Govt medical colleges + 100% of Central Govt’s medical colleges like JIPMER would be available for national rank holders. The general quota would be 50% in this category. She can choose any medical college in the country in this national quota. All the best to her endeavour.
            Yes, NEET PG has been officially announced, you may find it in MCI’s website. AIIMS is likely to conduct the exam under the aegis of MCI somewhere in Jan/Feb 2012. Pl look out for press notification expected to get released very soon.

    2. DEAR FRIENDS
      please focus on your state medical test .
      TWO MAJOR ISSUE ARE
      1. SYLLABUS 2. LANGUAGE OF MEDIUM
      NEET ug not possible in 2012 because circumstance is very different & oppose .
      It can possible in 2013 .
      The last decision will come out after one year Because the state board syllabus very different of many state from ncrt .
      Gujarati – Language of Gujarat
      . Punjabi – The official language of Punjab.
      Bengali- The state language of West Bengal Assamese – Official language of Assam.
      Kashmiri – The language of Kashmir .
      Urdu Oriya – The state language of state of Orissa. Marathi – Language of Maharashtra.
      Kannada – The official language of Karnataka. Tamil – The state language of Tamil Nadu.
      Telugu- It is the official language of Andhra Pradesh.
      Malayalam – It is the official language of Kerala. Sindhi Konkani – The state language of Goa. Manipuri – The official language of Manipur.
      1. HOW IT POSSIBLE TO MAKE QUESTION PAPER IN MANY LANGUAGES ?
      2. HOW IT POSSIBLE TO MAKE SAME SYLLABUS FOR EVERY STATE BOARD THIS YEAR .

      1. Hello Sam,
        How can you be so IGNORANT???? Pl READ…
        A common syllabus was already proposed and put up in MCI’s website inviting suggestions. There were only 1970 suggestions recd for changing syllabus, which shows that the proposed syllabus is acceptable for the majority of students.
        Regarding language, transcribing the question paper in Gujarati or Bengali is a petty issue which MCI would be able to do quite easily.
        Hence, MCI’s decision to start NEET in 2012 is justified.

        Hey, SAM stop teaching us which State follows what language. Everybody in this forum are quite aware. I think you have gone mad, better consult a Doctor, a good Doctor, not the one passed out from those dubious private medical colleges…..:))

  58. THIS IS THE BACKLASH TO GUYS LIKE “SAM”
    THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN “ASIAN AGE” Dt 13/09/2011

    After receiving support from most of the states, the Medical Council of India (MCI) on Monday finally decided to start common entrance test (CET) for undergraduate and post-graduates medical students from next year.

    Sources in the MCI disclosed that barring some states, like Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and Bengal, all other states gave its approval for the CET from 2012. While the exam for undergraduate course will be conducted by the CBSE, discussions are on with the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) for conducting post-graduate exam for medical students.
    Officials say that issues concerning those states opposing the proposal will be sorted out soon. “States like Gujarat and Bengal had issues with the language of the paper as we had originally planned to start the exam in English and Hindi only. But this issue can be taken care of and we will soon get in touch with the CBSE on this point,” said a senior official in the ministry.
    According to Dr Purushottam Lal, one of the board members of the MCI, “Queries related to the reservation policy and seats for private colleges were answered well during the discussion today. The states have been conducting the exam in their regional languages. So they were concerned, but these are petty things and will be sorted out.”
    Tamil Nadu, which has been opposing the idea ever since it was mooted last year, still opposed it. The state has most of the private medical colleges. Earlier, former chief minister K. Karunanidhi had also written to the Union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad that he was “astonished” by the notification. The Tamil Nadu government later got it stayed from the Madras high court. Dr Lal, however, said that things are different now. “We are going by the orders of the court, so all the states must have to come to a consensus,” added Dr Lal.

    JEE on way out as Bengal relents on medical CET

    Kolkata The West Bengal government has agreed to the Medical Council of India’s (MCI) plan to admit students in medical colleges across India through a common entrance test (CET). As a result, from next year, there will be no Joint Entrance Examination in West Bengal for students aspiring to get into state medical colleges.

    But students need not worry because just like in the JEE, where 85 per cent of the seats were reserved for students of Bengal domicile, the CET too has a similar provision for local students.

    This will come as relief as there was a fear that students from other states will corner most of the 1,700 medical seats in the state.

    Director of Medical Education (West Bengal) Sushant Banerjee, who led a team of officials to Delhi to convey the state government’s reservations on the CET, told The Indian Express over the phone that nothing much could be done. “How long can we object? We have to agree to it,” he said.

    Council officials assured the team that its demand for a Bengali version of the CET paper will be considered. The state government had said a Bengali version of the question paper would help in providing a level playing field for local students in the all-India examination.

    The only concern now is that the syllabus of the West Bengal Council for Higher Secondary Education (WBCHSE) is quite different from other boards such as Central Board of Secondary Education, and this could prove to be a handicap for students from the state.

    The WBCHSE has already started upgrading the syllabus of science subjects to bring them on a par with national boards. However, academicians say the gap is huge and would require some time to narrow down.

    Principals of local medical colleges have demanded a separate merit list for local students so that no seat remains vacant.

    “The merit list should be exhaustive so that the state’s quota of seats is fully utilised,” said a principal on condition of anonymity.

    1. hi ramesh im from andhra pradesh i think u know abt the telangana aggitation in ap .we dont even have complete view of the syllabus and the rest ofthe things plsssssssssssssssssss reply me.

  60. “However when MCI has asked for public feedback on the core syllabus the response was almost bleak, MCI claimed to have received feedback from only 1970 people which infact suggests that many are still ok with the syllabus released. So one can expect that MCI might conduct its first ever common medical entrance test (national level) in the year 2012 with out much changes to the syllabus.”- it means our future doctors will be all botanists and NCERT headquarter will be the world cenrte for ‘MBBS IN BOTANY’

    1. RETHINK ABOUT UR SYLLABUS FOR BIOLOGY.PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY SYLLABUS IS GOOD BUT BIO,ITS SHAMEFULLLLLLLLL.IF THIS IS THE RESULT OF INTENSE RESEARCH THEN WE MUST SAY THAT ‘REALY MERA BHARAT MAHAN’

  61. Neet Ug 2012 me hoga ki nahi. MCI is not clearing us about neet ug. They should have to clear us about this as it is also effecting our study too whether to prepare for aipmt, cpmt or for neet ug getting us more confusing help us yaar

    1. Aspiring
      medical
      students
      await for decision
      from
      Medical
      Council of India (MCI)
      w.r.t NEET- UG, National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for Undergraduates or Common Entrance Test (CET) will be the only entrance test an aspiring medical student has to take for admissions into government, private and deemed medical colleges in India. Earlier MCI’s decision was opposed by few state governments but was backed by the Supreme Court, speculations are all around about whether MCI will hold NEET-UG in the next academic year or will it postpone to 2013? If NEET-UG is held what will be the revised reservation under State quota for
      students of their home States. Question paper pattern and final syllabus for the common entrance test are few questions that left answered. Mean while State governments have expressed their dissatisfaction on MCI & CBSE. Sushanta Bannerjee, Director (Medical Education) of West Bengal reportedly said the government of West Bengal will oppose the MCI’s move and force for bilingual question paper in English and Bengali and also stress for reservation for State based Students. MCI has officially announced about NEET-PG an entrance test for MD / MS / Diploma courses, the announcement can be read from here. Students are hoping for a quick decision and answers from MCI soon, unlike engineering entrance examination, medical entrance test require more time for preparation and their is cut throat competition for seats in medical colleges. Its high time MCI needs to break the silence! So what are your views?

  62. NO NEET UG HOLD IN 2012 … hai ramesh ! you completely ignorance from indian democracy & constitutions
    Pune NGO to move Supreme Court over medical entrance
    by the Medical Council of India (MCI)’s plan to hold the national eligibility-cum-entrance test
    (NEET) test for the MBBS course from 2012, city-
    based non-governmental organisation, District
    Entrance Examination Performance Enhancement
    and Research (Deeper) is planning to file a public
    interest litigation in the Supreme Court against the holding of the examination. Deeper is of the view that medical college aspirants
    from Maharashtra could face difficulties in the NEET
    2012 as there is a mismatch in the syllabus
    followed for NEET and syllabus of the state board.
    DNA, in its report, ‘NEET: Maha problem for medical
    college aspirants’ , had highlighted this issue.
    Several educationists in Pune and Kolhapur had
    expressed concern over the mismatch in the
    syllabus followed by the NCERT (applicable to NEET)
    and the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and
    Higher Secondary Education. As per the earlier plan, NEET was to be introduced
    in 2013 and the state education board had altered
    its syllabus for mathematics, physics, chemistry and
    biology for standard XI this year to prepare their
    students for the 2013 exam. The syllabus for
    standard XII was to be altered next year in preparation for the 2013 exam. Speaking to the press on Friday, founder secretary,
    Deeper, Harish Butle said “NEET will be held for
    admission to the MBBS course across the country,
    which was earlier done by MHT-CET for the state.
    However the state government is not yet clear
    about admissions to other medical courses like bachelor in ayurvedic
    medicine and surgery or nursing.” Butle said it was not clear whether the state
    entrance test, MHT-CET, would be conducted. “The
    chief minister, Prithviraj Chavan, has not responded
    to our letter dated July 29 seeking clarity on the
    MHT-CET issue,” Butle said. He appealed to students and junior colleges to
    register their objections to the NEET 2012 and
    urged them to organise a signature campaign and
    submit it to the chief minister.

    1. 1. This is a very crual decision in favour of students of state boards
      of india SPECIALLY UP BOARD AND BIHAR.
      2. About 85% of student are from their state boards & syllabus
      proposed by MCI is 80% differ from state boards, students can not
      afford new syllabus in 1 year bcoz 12th students already have studied
      11th syllabous.
      3. Entrace exams questions will be from 11th & 12th class.july,august
      will passed till now.PLZZ EXPLAIN, HOW WILL BE A 2 YEAR SYLLABUS
      PREPAIRED BY STUDENTS OF STATE BOARDS IN 7 MONTHS?
      4. This decision will be better if there will be a common board in
      whole country,all appeared students will pass by studying a common
      syllabus, there will be many difficulties to prepare for NEET UG in
      2012.
      5. In this year,the whole ADVANTAGE of NEET UG will goes to CBSE
      students only bcoz their syllabus is EXACTLY SAME as NEET UG.

    2. Hey Sam,
      This is a old news. Though it was published in newspapers, nobody came forward to file a suit against NEET. All the news articles you ‘copy’ and ‘paste’ in this forum are already known to several readers. So dont waste your time and our time. If you have something to say NEW, you may write in this forum or else you better keep quiet.

  64. The so called “Protests” are just to satisfy those Antagonists like SAM. Have any one of those politicians filed a suit against NEET??? If they are so serious of protesting, they should have gone to the courts to stall NEET or should have taken much stronger route to stop NEET. The reason they dont do is they are waiting to decide which side to support for obvious political gains.
    Such political games are played year after year which prompted Supreme Court to comment that ” We are aware of such tricks played on these students every year”.
    These politicians for once should stop their tricks and support NEET for the cause of the Nation and for saving the falling standards of medical education in this country. Any citizen who wants to have a competent doctor in this country should support NEET at any cost. My vote is not for the Party which opposes NEET.

  65. NO ANY POSSIBLETY OF NEET :———————————————————- PMK opposed the
    Centre’s plan to have an All-India common
    entrance test for under-graduate programmes from
    2013, saying such a step would ‘burn down’ the
    higher education dreams of students belonging to
    marginalised communities. Reacting to HRD Minister Kapil Sibal’s remarks in Lok Sabha yesterday that
    the Centre intended to have a common test, PMK
    founder leader S Ramadoss said the plan to
    introduce an entrance exam was “against social
    justice.” Already Sibal had “acted beyond his
    jurisdiction” and recommended common entrance exam for medical admissions in the country,
    Ramadoss said. “Only after the Centre’s decision to
    implement 27 per cent reservation in its educational
    institutions, the situation has improved for common
    people,” he said. During a debate on a bill in Lok
    Sabha, Sibal said the government intended to have a common examination for under-graduate
    programmes across the country from 2013 and
    prepare a common merit list as part of efforts to

    1. :::::::::NO ANY CHANCE OF NEET :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Dispur has decided to write to the Centre saying the state is not ready for the
      Common Entrance Test (CET) for medical education. The Medical Council of India (MCI) recently decided
      to hold a CET, to be conducted by the Central Board
      of Secondary Education, from the 2012-13
      academic session for enrolling students in more
      than 62,000 MBBS seats across the country, both at
      the under-graduate and post-graduate levels. This includes private colleges. An Assam government official told The Telegraph that the government has expressed its
      unwillingness to admit students to state medical
      colleges through a proposed all-India test on the
      grounds that the Plus II curriculum of the state
      does not match that of the central boards. “The questions papers of the CET will be set on the
      basis of the CBSE and ICSE syllabi. So students from
      the state will suffer and miss out seats in the state
      medical colleges if the CET is introduced before the
      science syllabus followed by the Assam Higher
      Secondary Education Council is changed to follow the all-India standard,” the official said. Assam Higher Secondary Education Council
      chairperson Mohsin Ali said even though the
      council has introduced the syllabus recommended
      by the National Council of Educational Research and
      Training for Plus II in certain subjects this year, it
      would take some time to equip students to sit for the CET. He said students from the state would need time to
      fully acclimatise to the NCERT syllabus as well as do
      well in national-level entrance tests. There is another reason for the state’s opposition to
      the test. The official said Assam has large number of brilliant
      students from the rural areas who need time to
      prepare for the CET. “Many students from rural areas are not very
      comfortable with the English language while
      writing and appearing for interviews for national-
      level tests like the CET. So the state needs time to
      groom these students from the villages to clear the
      test. “When the Medical Council of India last year
      approached the Supreme Court to start the CET, the
      Assam government had informed the court about
      the students’ inability to appear for such a test,” the
      official said. According to the official, since the apex court has
      now approved the CET, the state would write to the
      MCI and Union health ministry asking for consent to
      admit students to state medical colleges through
      the Joint Entrance Test to be conducted by the state
      for the 2012-13 sessions. A majority of the students they require more time to
      emerge successful in such tests. Siddhartha Sarma, a Higher Secondary final year
      student, said he was still following the syllabus
      recommended by the AHSEC. “I am not accustomed
      to the CBSE syllabus and so I don’t have the
      confidence to sit for CET next year,” he said. The All Assam Students’ Union has also opposed
      CET, saying many students from the state would be
      deprived of getting admission to the state’s medical
      colleges.

  66. Hello Sir,
    Shall the NEET UG include AIIMS & AFMC MBBS entrance examination or not?As i am preparing only for AIIMS & AFMC it seems to be one of of the most important matter for me.Also i am giving 2-3 hours everyday for practicing questions based on Reasoning,General English and also General Knowledge.If these two will not happen then I’ll stop giving time to other studies except PCB.So kindly inform me about this.Thank you.

    1. NO ANY POSSIBLETY OF NEET Govt wants state quota, Bengali question paper
      for medical CET . The West Bengal government is set to oppose the Medical Council of India’s proposal of
      admitting students to the medical colleges in the
      state under the common medical test.
      “We are going to fight against it,” said Sushanta
      Bannerjee, Director (Medical Education),
      Government of West Bengal. He and state Health Secretary Sanjay Mitra are leading a tema of officials
      to Delhi where they would discuss the issue with
      officials of Medical Council of India (MCI).
      The state government will demand a significant
      proportion of reservation for the state students in
      the local medical colleges. Another demand, which the state government will be pressing for, is
      providing the question papers of medical
      examination in Bengali.The MCI has decided to hold
      a common entrance test (CET), to be conducted by
      the Central Board of Secondary Education, from
      next year for admitting students to the 35,000-odd MBBS seats across the country. Earlier this year, the
      Supreme Court gave an order in favour of MCI on
      the issue. Earlier, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee
      had written to Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi
      Azad expressing the state government’s
      unwillingness to admit students through the CET. The state government fears that once admission is
      conducted through a central process, local students
      would not be able to make a mark. Along with West
      Bengal, other states like Gujarat and Tamil Nadu
      have expressed their reservations to the CET
      proposal. So NEET is impossible

  67. helo, if neet ug will nt happn from this year and aipmt will b there,.i had used my 3 attmpts of it,one in 11th….thn i would b able to sit in aipmt 2012????please in need f suggestion….

  68. Now i am really confused?

    Should prepare for NEET or for state?
    Government should be aware of students problem, they will announce and then it’s done!!!!!!!!!!! Students will face a lot of problem?

    They should postpone it for 2012-2013 session.
    At least they should notify students that it’s happening or not.

  69. actually neet is must for mbbs as u may see in almost state pmt fraud is being as coaching are leaking paper like this year even in delhi pmt same happened but we can trust atleast cbse as they will conduct honestly in my opnion it is must only such people are making noise who can not earn money after this national lable test

THEY FEEL DIFFICULT TO LEARN ALL THOSE BULK HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY AND MUCH MORE… is NEET UG CONFIRMED for 2012 EXAM??? PLEASE REPLY

    1. Hi Shyam,
      How are you preparing for your entrance? Have you joined any coaching institute? If yes, where?
      Regarding NEET in Kerala. MCI would declare both national and state rank. The state rank would be used to admit students for both Govt and pvt medical colleges in Kerala.
      MCI made the Biology syllabus lighter b’coz the weight-age given for it is only 40% unlike AIPMT where 50% weight-age was given.
      Regarding possibility of NEET in 2012, it is most likely that it would take place in 2012 until and unless Anna Hazare decides to stop it 🙂

  73. I have called in mci they told that there is a 50% chance of conducting and 50% for not neet ug in 2012 and they doesn’t told the final date for announcement of neet ug now i have got totally confused what to study now for neet ug or for preparing for state medical council can anybody give me a path

    1. Dear Himanshu,
      From whicever state you may be don’t worry about what to prepare worry about how to prepare. Just remember for all state syllabus the total syllabus is near to NEET(UG) there may be reduction of 10% or so. For Maharashtra state the problem is MHT-CET is based on 12th syllabus only so most of the students prepare for 12th syllabus and neglect 11th but this will not be with you alone it is story of almost all and according to MCI state quata is intact so why to worry. There might be edge benifit to students preparing for CPMT.

  74. If neet comes into effect, does students who want to go through mgmt quota need to appear for neet and caulify, if anybody has credible information please post a reply.

    1. Hi Ram,
      Each student aspiring for MBBS whether it be magmt quota or Govt quota need to qualify in NEET. The idea here is that it is a entry test for all MBBS incumbents to ensure a minimum standard for admitting students. The management can however choose its candidates among the NEET rank holders based on ‘other’ considerations. Here after wards there wont be any exams conducted by pvt medical colleges.

  75. for all > read all past news related NEET ug protest . You can understand possiblety of NEET ug . Two Major issue are 1. Syllabus , 2. Language for state bord student . Many Chief Ministers and state government not accept NEET ug system 1. Bihar> Shri Nitish Kumar Dy CM Shri. Sushil Kumar Modi 2. Chhattisgarh> Shri Raman Singh 3. Gujarat> Shri Narendra Modi 4. HimachalPradesh > Prof.Prem Kumar Dhumal 5 Jharkhand> Shri Arjun Munda 6. Karnataka Shri D V Sadananda Gowda 7. Madhya Pradesh Shri Shivraj Singh Chaouhan 8. Punjab Sardar Prakash Singh Badal 9. Uttrakhand Dr. Ramesh
    Pokhriyal’Nishank & JAMMU kashmir government , maharashtra government , karnataka & tamilnadu governments are protest of NEET ug so friends no any possiblety of NEET ug in 2012 . Please preparation of your state bord medical entrance test .

  76. hii i want to know that will this combined entrance exam for the medicals will be conducted from this year 2012 or not as i have started the preparations already bt m nt clear bout the exact syllabu sm preparin according to the ncert chapters plssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss guide me its very urgent!!

  77. Can Anybody tell me about the commencement of neet ug in 2012 decision has finally taken or not as like neet pg we are not updated about neet ug till today as pg mci has hanged us

    1. Hello Himanshu,
      MCI is busy finalising arrangements for the PG entrance exam which is scheduled in Jan/Feb 2012. The entrance for UG is scheduled much later in May 2012 .The advertisement for UG entrance exam is likely to be released in Nov 2011.
      NEET-UG is truly on and there is no postponement this time for sure. Already, CBSE which normally announces AIPMT dates in Aug 11 itself has not done so in view of its plans for conducting NEET in 2012.

      1. Hi Ramesh,

        It seems you are very closely associated with MCI to know what they are finalising now and what are they going to do in future.I hope you will agree that MCI being such big organization,will have different sets of people to deal with PG and UG tests.
        Your logic and reasoning for delay tii Nov.2011 would have been ok if holding both these exams had become routine but definitely not when students are in the state of uncertainty for no fault of theirs.Atleast this year being the first year of major change,MCI should relaese ads.immediately and finalise syllabus and put up on site as it is almost a month since the last date of receipt of feedback has passed.

        1. Hi Vijay,
          I can see your anxiety written all over. But MCI being a Govt machinery would take its own time to process various activities. Which ever State you belong to, preparing for NEET based on its Syllabus is definitely be of advantage to face any entrance exam, whether it is State or Central.

          1. Hi Ramesh,
            Anxiety is bound to be there.Preparation is on but uncertainty does affect.
            I do agree that Govt.machinery does require time and that is why they should take their time and give students also sufficient time rather than rushing.
            Incidentaly could i know if you are a student or parent or teacher or MCI official.

            1. Hi Vijay,
              MCI cant give time as the direction to hold NEET has come from Supreme Court. This direction has come after several years of pleas from students. In my opinion, if a student is not ready to write NEET in 2012, he can write it anytime later before he becomes 25.

              1. Hi Ramesh,

                Nice to see your prompt replies to all querries addressed to you.But i am still awaiting your response to last line of my post Dt.Sept.10th 2011 @ 1.06 PM.

                1. Hi Vijay,
                  I do not want discussions to be too personal. I believe,it doesn’t matter who I am. What matters here is what I write in this forum in the context of the subject to the best of my knowledge, belief and factual events.

  78. Mci has posted some news about neet pg but not any news for neet ug can any body tell me is the neet ug is going to be held in 2012 or not they hanged us from may till Sep

  79. hi everybody, i want ask that,can a student who has appeared for AIPMT 3 TIMES already ,appear for NEET OR AIPMT IN 2012 ………….PLZ DO ANSWER ANYBODY……

    1. Hi Gazala,
      In my opinion, you need to satisfy only the age criteria. I dont think NEET would care about your attempts in AIPMT.

  80. Govt on the clearance of Supreme Court had taken the right decision in announcing NEET in 2012. It should implement the test in May 2012, as decided, without any hiccups. Students who are not ready to write exam in 2012 can take it in later years. Unlike most people who are employed and get retired at 58 or 60, Doctors being professionals, need not worry about losing a year or two but can practice as long as they like. So, my point is students who wish to qualify for entrance can afford to spend a year or two more to qualify for the entrance exam.
    All smart and gutsy students can take exams next year (2012), while the weak ones can take it later whenever they are ready.

  81. Respected Sir, I told “I am one of the reservation candidate from WEST BENGAL &10TH(CBSE0+2(Andhra Board) studied at Andhra Pradesh. Reply received as Andhra is not sharing seats to the All India Quota, all the seats in Andhra Govt. medical colleges will be allotted on the basis of NEET 12’s State Ranking. Sir, But A.P. Govt. is already asked to MCI to participate in NEET-12 & to share 15% national quota. So my question No.1) A.P.’s request will be considered or not? 2). I Will be eligible reservation quota in Andhra Pradesh or not if I opted at Andhra & A.P. Govt. is filled up all the 100% Seats through NEET-12 ? Please Reply.

    1. Hi Hina,
      If AP’s request of sharing 15% of its seats gets approved, then West Bengal and AP will be on same platform. So, you can choose one of those States in which you would like to participate. You cannot participate in both the States.
      The selection of students in these States would be on the basis of its own reservation policy. You should obtain community certificate in the respective State to be eligible for participating in that State’s quota of seats.
      Finally, which ever State is advantageous considering no of govt colleges, no of seats, educational standards…etc., you may choose accordingly.

  82. Hi All,
    The MCI ordinance Bill has been approved both in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. Hence, MCI is empowered to hold the NEET 12 without any problems. MCI is gearing up to hold NEET for UG, PG and Super Speciality in January 2012, May 2012 and June 2012 respectively.
    The entire student community barring few narrow minded welcome this development.
    Kudos to MCI, Ministry of Health and Supreme Court for making this possible. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

    1. respected sir,
      yesterday my friend ask to mci on phone regarding possibility to held neet for 2012. mci official said that due to some reason it is not possible to hold neet in 2012.. we will try in 2013

    2. Hi Ramesh,
      Thanks for the information.I am sure your announcement will be followed by one by MCI shortly ,hopefully on their site along with final syllabus based on responses received by them.
      In the meantime could you pl.inform as to where can one get the details about Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha approving the bill?.

      Vijay M.Kiri.

      1. Hi Vijay,
        Instead of waiting for announcement of revised syllabus, my suggestion is we should start preparing for topics which are already in the proposed syllabi. We can deal with the deviations later after announcements.
        regarding MCI ordinance bill, pl google and check out.

  83. Resp. sir,
    we can’t get clear information regarding NEET-UG 2012? still there is no declaration of final syllabus. Till what time we have to wait for syllabus? what about language? exam in gujarati is must in gujarat.we want confirm news from MCI.how to get the news?

    1. Hi Hina, In few days MCI will announce the decision and finalize the syllabus. As soon as the information is available we will update.

  84. Respected sir,I am one of the reservation candidate from WEST BENGAL& 10th(CBSE)+2(Andhra Board)Studied at Andhra Pradesh.If NEET-UG 12 is conducted ,my reservation is applicable for both the STATE OR NOT? As existing state reservation rule not giving reservation quota to other STATES candidate.If NEET-UG/PG 12 for all INDIA candidates, reservation will preserved for all INDIA OR NOT?.And for which state I should apply so that I am eligible 85% reservation in state? Please reply.

    Reply

    1. Hi Ashok,
      You cannot represent 2 States. Even if you are eligible for both the states, you should choose one among them. Since, Andhra is not sharing seats to the All India Quota, all the seats in Andhra Govt medical colleges will be allotted on the basis of NEET 12’s State Ranking.
      I personally feel, you stand a better chance in West Bengal where you can share the 85% State quota as well as All India quota.
      Hope your doubts are cleared…..!!!

  85. supreme court give order in august 2010 for hold NEET in 2011 but not hold due to left no agree . So please understand indian democracy system . if any announce about NEET than many state govt. will go to supreme court to stay. So nothing any possiblety of NEET .

  86. I am much happy and relieved that NEET is finally coming in 2012. I am preparing myself for NEET and AIIMS only. This is welcome decision from Ministry of Health, MCI and Supreme Court. At last Govt has taken a very sensible decision to hold NEET.
    Jai hind!!

  87. how it possible renu ! you know union health ministry not agree & many state government not accept NEET exam system due to syllabus & language . So NEET not hold in 2012 .

    1. Hi sam,
      The decision of supreme court is supreme. Everyone including, States, you and me have to follow its decision. Whether you like it or not, NEET will be held in 2012. 🙂

      1. Hi Ramesh,
        Technically and legally you may be right and as you say whether we like it or not NEET will be held in 2012.But should Supreme court not fix date for MCI to finalize syllabus and issuing notification giving enough time for students?It’s pity that students are left to the mercy of MCI who have been having the supreme court’s order for such along time but preffered to post syllabus for comments till AUG 11TH and now no news about final syllabus.

        Incidentally there is no response from you to my posting on this blog on Sept.1,2011.
        Vijay M.Kiri

  88. @ramesh sir,
    sir thanxxxx a lot for telling,but sir in our nagpur almost all of the students fell that neet will not be held and even most of the reputed teachers in nagpur who are teaching us say that it is impossible to hold neet in 2012 and they had even registered a case in the court regarding neet.i think that are misguiding us. btw i have joined aakash institute a few months back but i still had a confusion thnxx for guiding :)..

  89. SIR, Why MCI has not made a clear announcement regarding the conduction of NEET in 2012 till now though it had earlier written on its website that notification will be given by the end of august. moreover, i will like to know whether a chance limitation of 3 times will be introduced in the pre-medical test 2012(be it NEET OR AIPMT),as the chance limitation was removed last year.plz do reply soon…….

      1. Hi Ramesh Sir,i read the vision 2015 from page 41 to 54 and i will like your response on three points: 1. the eligibility criteria in the vision only says that “50% marks taking together phy,chem and bio from a recognisied board in 12th” is required for NEET-UG.IT NOWHERE WRITES THAT A MAXIMUM CHANCE OF 3 ATTEMPTS WILL BE ALLOWED. 2.It writes that a total of 250 question will be given however duration of exam will remain 3 hrs only. 3.how come 10 to 15 lakh students are expected to give the exam…………as far as i know about 2 lakh students gave AIPMT in 2011 n i think most of the medical aspirants appear for AIPMT atleast

        1. Hi Gazala,
          I am answering your point-wise queries in the same order:
          1. Yes, No of attempts is not mentioned in Vision 2015. However, based on the feedbacks recd earlier from various stake holders, it is expected that not more than 3 attempts would be allowed. This announcement would come later from MCI.
          2. Yes, 250 questions in 3 hrs. The reason being, the pattern is different from AIPMT and it is estimated that students can answer these MCQs within the time allotted
          3. AIPMT was for the 15% seats. The remaining 85% was filled by States through their own entrance exams. Now since the NEET would combine both the tests,the no of students would be more than the previous years.

          1. hi Ramesh i don’t get it……abt what stake holders r u talking about. i have already appeared for AIPMT 3 TIMES……can i give AIPMT OR NEET 2012, whichever may happen

  90. dear sir,
    please tell me a clear decision regarding neet(ug) will it happen in 2012 or 2013? or it is for the acaedemic session 2012 -2013? will there be a common medical entrance in 2012(may)

    1. Hi Abhijeet,
      NEET would definitely take place in May 2012. There is not even a aorta of doubt in my mind. Normally, CBSE would announce AIPMT by this time for holding its exam next year 2012, but this year it has only announced AIEEE and not AIPMT. You all know that AIPMT is held in Apr 1st week much earlier than AIEEE which is held in the last week of April. This means, CBSE will not hold AIPMT in 2012. Instead, it will hold only NEET in 2012 under the directions of MCI. The announcement of NEET would be released in newspapers by MCI in NOV 2011 for holding the test in May 2012.
      Hence, all students may prepare themselves to take NEET in 2012 much to the relief of everyone. Students need not henceforth write about 5 to 6 exams but only write one single exam i.e. NEET in May 2012.
      Hope your doubts are cleared….

      1. Hi Ramesh,
        your logic and confidence are definitely applaudable.But dont you think that atleast by this time colleges should have been properly informed about the syllabus and the final decision of MCI.This would have cleared the uncertainty the state board students are confronted with for no fault of their’s.How many students like Abhijeet are active on blog and lucky enough to get advice from Mr.Ramesh?
        We were expecting final decision with revised syllabus to be announced through proper channel by MCI latest by August end.But till now there is no updation on MCI site.When tried to reach MCI on phone we can only hear recorded messages but no body comes on line.E Mails requesting for information are not even acknowledged.
        I only hope MCI is not expecting state board students to prepare for May 2012 NEET after announcement in Nov.2011.I am sure they know that these students have to appear for HSC exam also to be held in Feb./Mar.2012.Let them get in to the shoes and mental status of these students and take RIGHT AND TIMELY DECISION AND ANNOUNCE/COMMUNICATE THROUGH PRPPER CHANNELS.

        1. Hi Vijay,
          On the issue of Syllabus, in view of only 1970 feedbacks recd from public, I feel there wont be much change in the syllabus announced. If it all there is any change, it could be marginal, hence a student can start preparing on the syllabus announced and fine tune it later.
          There is no point in waiting for the announcement of final syllabus.

  91. REPECTED SIR,
    YOU CLARIFY US REGARDING THE LANGUAGE OF NEET-UG AS IN OUR GUJARAT 90% STUDENTS ARE STUDYING IN GUJARATI MEDIUM. IF NEET-UG IS CONFIRM YOU GIVE US FINAL SYLLABUS SOTHAT WE GET ENOUGH TIME

  92. hai gupta , if you watch RAJYA SABHA TV CHANNEL ON MONDAY BETWEEN 12PM TO 3PM THAT YOU NOT POSTED THIS RUBBISH THOUGHT . YOU TOTALLY HAVE IGNORANCE ABOUT INDIAN POLITICAL SYSTEM IN CENTRAL AND STATE ALSO IN MCI, LOK SABHA & RAJYA SABHA UNDERSTOOD . I HAVE A LOT OF COLLECTION OF INFORMATION ABOUT MEDICAL examination . So clear your data.

    1. Hi Sam,
      Do you have any report to prove your claim. Mind you this is a sensitive issue (NEET) and if there are any major developments, I am sure it would be reported in the media like newspapers, TV news, Web reports etc. Is there any such reports? Can you give reference??
      Please understand, NEET was ordered by Supreme Court and only Supreme Court has got the authority of stopping. I dont believe your crap.

      You better give us documentary evidence or report to support your claim. You say that you have lot of collection about medical examination, you better show your collection to prove your posting.
      I am also aware about politics and parliamentary proceedings, so dont teach me all this, OK???

  93. Dear Administrators,

    Sub: Message posted by “SAM” regarding proceedings in Rajya Sabha

    I have serious doubts about the veracity of this report. His posting did not say when the issue was discussed (no date) at Rajya Sabha. Secondly there were no Press reports about this sensitive issue in today’s newspapers (30/8/2011)
    Sam’s message was posted at 12.52 am. i.e. almost at midnight when the entire Rajya Sabha would have been sleeping. Hence, it is a clear case of misleading this forum and thousands of readers. Some body is trying to play havoc in the minds of readers without realising its repercussions. This sick guy is continuously posting some rubbish at midnight when the message is not subject to moderation.
    THIS IS A BIG HOAX!!!
    HENCE, I REQUEST THE ADMINISTRATORS TO REMOVE HIS POSTING AND ALSO ISSUE STERN WARNING TO THIS PERSON.
    Thanks and regards

    1. Hi, If there is any public announcement made about NEET we will be among the first to publish that information. Users here are aware of this, so don’t panic about comments from other users. Every one has the right to speak or share their thoughts on Career Mitra as long as his comments are with in the acceptable limits we should be allowing them to speak. Abusive language or impersonating as an official body will be treated as unhealthy and comments of such nature will be removed.

      1. Dear Mr Srikanth,
        I have read the entire debate which had taken place yesterday (29/8/2011)on the adoption of a Bill on extension of MCI ordinance by 1 year. The bill which was already passed by Loksabha was moved by Shri Gulam Nabi Azad, the Minister, for adoption in the Rajya sabha. Various Members of Rajya Sabha spoke mostly about medical colleges, medical system etc. Some members spoke against the NEET. It was sort of a general discussions on the composition of MCI and extension of term for the MCI members and nothing to do with the NEET in specific.

        The BILL was finally adopted by the Rajya Sabha yesterday. Nowhere did the minister specify that he will not give green signal for NEET. Such misleading statement is bound to disrupt students who are preparing for the test. Such false statement will send wrong signals to the student and it may spoil his entire plan of study. Thats the reason why I have taken objection and appealed to you to remove such comment.
        Pl ref the below weblink for details of discussions which took place in the HOUSE
        http://164.100.47.5/debatenew/newshow.aspx

        Readers of this forum are free to refer the above link and come to a conclusion. Well, everyone has right to express his views, but at the same time, no one has the right to misquote a Minister. In my opinion, the last line of what SAM had written needs to be removed.

  94. T0 DAY IN RAJYA SABHA …. BILL OF MCI… MANY MPS PROTEST OF NEET UG AND SAY TO HEALTH MINISTER GULAM NABI AZAD ABOUT DISADVANTAGES OF NEET FOR RURAL STUDENTS OF EVERY STATE AND SYLLABUS & MEDIUMIN ONLY HINDI & ENGLISH NEVER ACCEPTABLE. MORE ARGUMENT ABOUT CORRUPTION IN MCI. SO UNION HEALTH MINISTRY NEVER GIVE GREEN SIGNAL FOR NEET UG .

  95. Respected sir,I am one of the reservation candidate from WEST BENGAL& 10th(CBSE)+2(Andhra Board)Studied at Andhra Pradesh.If NEET-UG 12 is conducted ,my reservation is applicable for both the STATE OR NOT? As the existing state reservation rule not giving reservation quota to other STATES candidate.If NEET-UG/PG 12 for all INDIA candidates, reservation will preserved for all INDIA OR NOT?.And for which state I shold apply so that I am eligible 85% reservation ? Please reply.

  96. Respected Sir,I am one of the Reservation Candidate from WEST BENGAL & 10 class(CBSE)+2(Andhra Board)Studied at Andhra Pradesh.If NEET-UG is conducted , for both the state my reservation is applicabale or not? if A.P is will for NEET-12/not will. As existing state reservation rule will not giving reservation to other states candidate. If common test is being done reservation quota should be Followed for all INDIA or not ?

  97. Sir,How many chances shall be offered to a medical aspirant to appear the NEET-UG.i.e. how many times a student can appear the NEET-UG?Please inform me about this as i am totally ignore about this.

    1. Hi raja,
      Remember, Supreme court has directed the Govt to hold the exam and State Govts are obliged to follow its directions. Anybody who opposes the move of NEET will be guilty of ‘Contempt of Court” which is punishable. So, better watch out before you talk such things.

  98. I am from West Bengal.Here 90% students are from Bengali medium. Will NEET be taken only in Hindi and English? Then only 10% students of our state can perform in this exam with full potential.
    And there is a big difference between the West Bengal council syllabus and NEET syllabus. We have been preparing for our state level entrance exam since 18 months and now MCI says start preparing for NEET. So we have only 8 months to prepare the new syllabus.

    So I think NEET should be started from 2014. So students from state boards will get 2 years for preparation.

    MCI received less number of feedback because they asked for a review of the NEET core syllabus. They didn’t asked whether NEET should be held or not. If they did it I am sure a lot of teachers and students would request not to start the exam from 2012.

    1. Hi Shabbir,

      “””MCI received less number of feedback because they asked for a review of the NEET core syllabus. They didn’t asked whether NEET should be held or not. If they did it I am sure a lot of teachers and students would request not to start the exam from 2012.”””

      Pl understand neither MCI nor anybody cannot ask this question because the decision to hold NEET in 2012 was taken by Supreme Court, hence it would amount to contempt of court if anybody holds a referendum on its decision.

      MCI is likely to hold the test in other vernacular languages like Bengali also apart from English & Hindi. Also there is sufficient time to prepare for the exam. Hence, students should start preparing from now on.

  99. Sir,
    I fully support the NEET(UG) as in Maharashtra the syllabus for MHT-CET is confined to 12th stander but due to this choice student don’t give any importance to 11th syllabus. Now they will prepare for the entire syllabus and more over they will not be at any loss due to 85% reservation. But i certainly know that no lunches are free lunches so due to this single examination the student will have a pressure of just one chance due to any reason it he looses this chance he will be losing his admission to his dream course.
    As a teacher i expect that there may be two or three examinations and best two may be considered and once it is decided then other things can be manege.

    1. Hi Nitin,
      This is a national exam which would be held throughout the country. As of now MCI does not have any idea of holding multiple tests. It is likely to hold one single test in May 2012 (Last Sunday). The idea here is, all the stake holders wanted the students to have time of about 2 full months free i.e. in April and May. Most of the HSC exams be over in March itself. Since, a student has to attend only one single medical entrance test, he can spend this 2 full months for studying for this entrance test (NEET).

      Like AIPMT, MCI may allow upto 3 attempts. So the students who feel they are not confident enough to take up the test in 2012 may take it next year i.e. in 2013 or in subsequent years.

  100. sir Narayanan,
    According to Vision-2015 85% seats have been reserved for respective states ,then what’s the justification of a national test? You said that “that majority of the people are in agreement with the syllabus.” But if a medical entrance syllabus does not have human physiology will that be justified??

    1. Dear Sayantan,
      I suggest you read Vison 2015 once again. The idea of NEET is to combine about 17 separate medical tests into one single test to relieve the student of stress & money spent. Right now, various States have different type of entrance tests and some of them were found to be rigged. Central Govt and MCI wants to have a one single standard test free of any rigging. The quota of 85% is allotted to the respective States so that the students should not feel deprived that the other State candidates take away their quota. More so, the respective States invest money and infrastructure to build and maintain those medical colleges. The entitlement of educating its own students should go first to that State.

      Regarding syllabus, there is a scope for revision based on the feedback given to MCI, you should wait & watch. However, Hypothetically, what do we lose if MCI does not include ‘Human Physiology’. The syllabus is going to be lighter, makes easier to prepare.:)

      1. sir,
        this work of making syllabus lighter could be done by removing chapters like BIOLOGICAL CLASSIFICATION etc.increasing percentage of physics & chemistry is welcome.But time must be increased At least Half an hour where some problems in those subjects are calculation-based

        1. Dear Sayantan,
          The common core syllabus was formulated by a panel of experts after considering various syllabi followed by States. The proposed common syllabus was put on the MCI website inviting comments and suggestions from students and other stake holders. The last date for receiving suggestions was closed on 11th Aug 2011.
          I agree with your suggestions, but it should have been sent to MCI within the last date. Lets hope somebody like you would have posted the same suggestion already 🙂
          As of now, there are 75 questions each in Physics and chemistry and 100 questions in Bilogy all of which needs to be answered in 3 hours (180 mins).

        2. hello sayantan,i think you are totally ignore about the AFMC examination where one have to complete 200 questions in only 2 hours.Where topics such as ‘Reasoning’,’English’ are also included.Then how students answer 200 questions in only 2 hours & qualify it.So I think answering 250 questions of PCB in 3 hour is not an extreme serious case as it was for AFMC.This is meant for improving one’s question solving skill & to attain a standard positioning in this competitive world.There shouldn’t be all facilities to achieve success rather one has to find facilities in all to achieve success.So try yourself to forget this matter for your benefit.Thank you.

    2. pls pls pls inform me wat ll b the pattern???will dere b a single xam or prelims nd mains lyk before???no.of questn nd other details …..pls reply soon

      1. Hi Sneha,
        Test will be based on MCQ type with physics and chemistry 75 questions each and biology 100 questions. One single paper answerable in 3 hours. As of now there is no prelim and main, there will only be 1 exam and that is most likely to be held in May 2012 (last Sunday)

        Any more doubts???

        1. sir,its still nt clr whether neetug ll tk place or nt in 2012???in coaching institutes,its still nt informed nd there is lots of confusion….pls make it clear so we may start our prep.wid full assurance..

          1. Hi Sneha,
            Pl read following links thorougly. After reading, I am sure you would realise how serious the Govt, MCI & Supreme court is serious about holding NEET.

            http://eklavyajee06.blogspot.com/2011/08/neet-single-medical-entrance.html
            http://www.mciindia.org/MediaRoom/Announcements.aspx
            pl download vision 2012, read from page 41 to 54.

            Some anti-social elements are trying to disrupt the proposal of NEET. But they will not succeed, NEET would surely come into force from next year 2012.
            Bye

          2. Hi Sneha,
            Nobody can predict what is going to happen in future. You better prepare for NEET. If the NEET happens you can perform and if it doesn’t, the preparation would certainly help you to perform well in other exams. In any case preparation is going to be definitely beneficial.
            Hope u agree with me 🙂

  101. sir, I want to know that why MCI has not made a clear announcement till know that whether it will conduct NEET-UG in 2012 or not.students are still in confusion……. and what about the high opposition which the states like Gujrat n Maharashtra r offering to NEET….PLZ DO RPLY

    1. I guess, some States are playing politics to please a section of people who are opposing the idea of NEET. Actually all States were impleaded in the Supreme Court while this case was being discussed. Supreme court finally ruled in favour of NEET after hearing arguments from all stake holders including States.
      Having come thus far,in my opinion, there is no scope for canceling NEET at this stage.

  102. Resp. sir,
    I am from GUJARAT.NEET-UG WILL BE TAKEN IN WHICH LANGUAGE? OUR 18000 students are studying in GUJARATI MEDIUM. Pl. reply surely.

  103. i would like to know y r the colleges not informed yet,,so that they can conduct the negative marking tests and keep them upto date i am from hyderabad

  104. Dear Dr Mathur,
    MCI had announced that each qualified candidate will have a national and state rank. For 15% per cent of the seats available in the State Medical colleges there will be a Central counselling which will be conducted by Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. For the remaining 85% of the seats, the concerned States will conduct counselling based on the NEET’s State ranks applying the existing reservation rules prevalent in the respective States.
    Pl visit this weblink :
    http://www.mciindia.org/MediaRoom/Announcements.aspx

    download “vision 2015” PDF file and ref page 41 to 54 which gives most of the info which are repeatedly being queried here in “Career Mitra” Forums. I am requesting all concerned to go through fully this file for full information about the proposed NEET for UG, PG & super speciality courses in medical colleges.

      1. Dear Dr Mathur,
        Pl ref page 47 in Vision 2015:
        “”””Only MCI or a body designated by it will be responsible for
        conduct of the examination and preparation of national
        and state merit lists. National merit list will be used for
        admission to 15% all-India quota (whatever proportion is
        applicable from time to time) and state merit list will be used
        by respective state quota admissions.””””

  105. If the common test is there then the next anxiety is how it is GOING TO BE IMPLEMENTED AT ALL INDIA AND STATE LEVEL.WILL CANDIDIATES HAVE TO APPLY SEPRATELY FOR ALL THE COLLEGES AT ALL INDIA AND STATE LEVEL.HOW THE COUNCILIING WILL BE DONE .OR ALL THE SEATS ALL INDIA PLUS STATE WILL BE OPEN TO EVERY BODY WHO APPEARS IN THE EXAM. AND CENTRAL COUNCILLING WILL BE DONE.MCI HAS TO DECLARE MODUS OPERANDI OF IMPLEMENTATION

  106. hiiiiii,
    are aiims nd bhu also included in dis comn entrance??i v passed 12th dis yr nd hope to crack medical nxt yr.pls pls pls send me the correct syllabus……thanks….

  107. As already announced by Central Govt and MCI, based on the direction of Hon’ble Supreme Court, entrance test (NEET-UG) for Medical has to be held in May 2012. As majority of students and parents are eagerly awaiting for this test, the Govt should go ahead holding this test without any further delay. The MCI should review the syllabus as per the feedback recd from various quarters with respect to Physics and Biology and announce the revised syllabi shortly. As the current mood of the people are for transparency and anti-corruption, the selection of students on the basis of entrance would go well with people’s expectation of removing large scale irregularities in the selection of students for medical studies.

    Coming to Mr Kapil Sibal’s announcement, I fully support his views and I fully subscribe to the idea of holding one single entrance test for Engineering and management studies. This would largely reduce the stress on the students and also would improve the transparency in the selection of students. The Govt should start putting the necessary legal framework now itself and start its plans rolling immediately so that it can be held from 2013.

    In my opinion, tests for medical and engineering should be held separately as many feel that the common subjects like Physics and Chemistry may not have the same depth common for both disciplines. The content and depth can vary according to the general aptitude a student need to have before he takes up his UG study.

    When many countries are already following this system of single national tests for selection of students, India should also have a similar system which would eradicate multiple tests with multiple exam fee which saps the energy of a student. Thank God! at least now our people have started thinking on the right lines which was expected by people for a long time now.

    1. A national approach to medical entrance examination is the best decision indeed . But there lies two classes of students – economically ill and economically weak . First category students can avail a costly preparation whereas the second category students mostly rely on self based preparation . A difference in syllabus between Higher Secondary level and entrance level will surely affect the second type of students .To overcome this gap they must be provided with sufficient time . HRD ministry should first demolish all the 31 senior secondary boards or should order to follow a common syllabus to all these boards or councils across the country . Otherwise the central Government is forcing students to study under CBSE board by this proposal because NEET syllabus is nothing but CBSE-AIPMT syllabus resubmitted . Is there enough seats under CBSE +2 level board to accept all the science stream Senior secondary students across the country ? If not then the merit-list of NEET will be occupied by CBSE board students . States lacking the NEET syllabus topics will be unable in having there students in NEET merit list . Poor will become poorer . Uniformity is good but that should be applied from grass-root level .

      1. Hi Bose,
        The common core syllabus was formulated by NCERT after taking into account the various syllabus being followed by different State Boards. There is a general misconception that CBSE had set the syllabus, which is not correct. I differ with your views that NCERT’s syllabus is the replica of CBSE. MCI had published NCERT’s proposed syllabus in its website for comments and if your views were correct, then MCI should have recd lakhs if not thousands of email feedbacks on the syllabus. It had actually recd only 1970 feedbacks, which clearly indicates that majority of the people are in agreement with the syllabus. However, my earnest desire is that MCI should still review its syllabus based on these feedbacks and revise according to the merits.
        Secondly, your views that all 31 boards needs to be trashed and asked to follow CBSE is not correct. In my opinion, students who opt for either medical or engineering only need to follow a CBSE or ICSE standard, the majority of others who take up courses like paramedical, nursing, engg diplomas, Science, Biotechnology etc can still continue in the same existing syllabus.
        As the 1st NEET is scheduled in May 2012(last Sunday). Students who are in XII Std will have almost 2 full months i.e.April and May for preparing for the NEET after they complete XII std exams in March.
