Following the supreme court’s approval MCI has made it official on it’s decision to hold a common medical entrance test (NEET or National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test). However State Governments may oppose MCI’s initiative of conducting a common medical entrance test.
State Governments opposing NEET are Karnataka, Tamilnadu, Gujarat and Maharashtra and more States are likely to oppose the MCI views of holding a single entrance test.
In contrast, the Andhra Pradesh government has expressed its interest to abolish the State level entrance exams and follow the Common Entrance Test.
The heat is on Times of India has reported that ‘a large number of students and parents held a protest meeting in Ahmedabad’ expressing their dissatisfaction on holding NEET. Parents and Students are of the view that the syllabus state boards teach are different from the syllabus taught in central schools. The syllabus is likely to favor Central Board students since it is prepared by NCERT which considered Central Board Syllabus.

In a nut shell 3 major issues students are complaining about are
- The inclusion of Physics Syllabus
- Less time to prepare for a new syllabus
- Exclusion of Human Physiology
MCI is seeking public views on the syllabus you can mail your views to (firstname.lastname@example.org) till August 11, 2011. Lets await for the MCI’s final opinion on the syllabus and entrance test.
In my view few states might get an exception for the next year since it is unfair as the students has already studied one year syllabus from their respective state boards. If one State gets the liberty few other States might also ask for it!
What are your views??
