Andhra Pradesh High Court Reacts to NEET


Andhra Pradesh high court today stayed the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for Under Graduate medical courses; though nothing new or surprise. Further hearing will be after four weeks; decision will be taken whether NEET UG should be deferred or not in the State. Earlier we had reported that the Andhra government is approaching high court and also we had mentioned NEET is deferred by 2 years in the State.

Over 65,000 students appear for EAMCET (the state level entrance test) every year; close to 25,000 of them take EAMCET in Telugu (regional language). The petitioners indicated the harm or unbiased approach NEET UG can bring in; variation in syllabus and no regional question paper is what the State is arguing at.

NEET UG was earlier announced to take off on 13 May 2012; there are various views and opinions surrounded the matter. No confirmation was officially declared by MCI till date; news rumored that NEET UG has been cancelled and at the same time there is valid information that NEET UG is going to take place.

The drama has never ended; hope MCI or CBSE breaks silence soon!

  1. Medical Council of India (MCI) is reported to have written to the Union law ministry stating that conducting National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) will not be possible this year, sources said. NEET was to be introduced by the MCI as a common entrance exam for admission in MBBS colleges all over the country.

    The council will make a formal decision about not holding the NEET exam from this year soon, sources added. MCI has decided to offer NEET following SC directives but the plan met with lot of opposition from several states with many chief ministers writing against the test. MCI has expressed that NEET cannot be implemented from this year as there was a complete lack of consensus.

    What’s more, petitions were filed in the high courts of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Jammu and Kashmir and stay orders granted against organizing NEET. There are also reports of pressure from the South lobby which have big stakes in self-financed colleges and would suffer losses in terms of capitation fee if admissions are granted on basis of a single test.

    In Gujarat too, the NEET met with severe opposition not only from the state government but also from parents of students of class XI and XII (science) who actively campaigned against the entrance test. Gujarat’s prime opposition against NEET was that not conducting the test in local language would be unfair to the 70% students who study in Gujarati medium.

    Moreover, there is 30-35% difference between the NEET and the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) syllabus, which will not offer the local students a level playing field.

    Gujarat had said that it will join NEET only if the test is offered in Gujarati language and the difference between the two syllabuses is bridged. In addition, Gujarat had said that it will join the exam only after 2012.

    Academicians said that NEET is a landmark step in the medical education and it should be implemented.

  2. What will happen to those states who (30 out of 34) had given the Node for NEET 2012 like Tripura? Can anybody suggest on this topic if NEET not happened due to shortage of time , language problem , different syllabus for students of 4 states?

  3. Suspense ends: CET on hold, it’s WBJEE this year Dec 1, 2011, 03.54AM IST TNN KOLKATA: After weeks of nail-biting apprehension,
    Medical aspirants can breathe easy. The West
    Bengal Joint Entrance Board will conduct the
    medical entry test for 2012. Earlier, there was suspense over the CBSE-
    conducted Common Entrance Test (CET) that is
    being made mandatory nationwide. If Bengal were
    to follow it this year, thousands of higher
    secondary students would have a tough time
    getting to terms with the CBSE syllabus and answering the test in English. The WBJEE questions
    are set in Bengali as well, but there is no vernacular
    option in CET. After a meeting of the JEE board members with
    officials of the higher education and health
    departments on Wednesday, the board
    unanimously decided to conduct the JEE medical
    and engineering 2012 as usual. “We’ll issue the
    final notification soon and start distributing forms,” said board chairman Bhaskar Gupta. Gupta assured examinees that they needn’t worry
    about strictures from the Medical Council of India
    (MCI) that it may derecognize degrees of MBBS
    students who do not take the CET. “The government must have a plan. We could not
    have taken a decision bypassing the government.
    It knows about the problem and will take
    responsibility for the medical students. They need
    not worry. Moreover, though MCI had said they
    may derecognize the degrees of students who do not appear in CET, they have not confirmed the
    decision,” Gupta said, adding: “Karnataka and Tamil
    Nadu are also conducting separate medical
    entrance tests and not participating in CET. They
    have got stay orders from the high courts.” He would not say if the Bengal government was
    planning to take legal steps and secure a stay
    order. “This can be best answered by the
    government itself. However, legal advisors of WBJEE
    board have given me the go-ahead and informed
    me that there won’t be any legal hassles if we take a separate admission test,” Gupta added. The WBJEE will be held on April 15 next year. “All
    the questions will be multiple-choice. We shall start
    making preparations accordingly.” “With only five months to go for CET, medical
    aspirants in the state were in a dilemma. We could
    not let the uncertainty continue any further,” said a
    health department official. Though chief minister Mamata Banerjee had written
    to Union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad to
    conduct the exam in Bengali, no reply has arrived
    even after three weeks. “The CM had wanted a
    reply within a week. The Centre had been acting
    pricey. CBSE, which will conduct CET in 2012, has said they will prepare question papers only in
    English and Hindi and not in regional languages.
    We had no option but to keep the medical entrance
    exam with us at least for one more year,” said the
    health official. “There is also a difference between the NCERT and
    Bengal syllabii. Till today, students were not sure
    which syllabus they had to follow. How could they
    start preparing for the exam?” the official said,
    adding that the government was preparing to take
    legal steps and file a case in high court soon. It was education minister Bratya Basu who had
    pointed out that language and syllabus were the
    two major obstacles for the state to accepts CET
    from this year.
