Recent developments with respect to the newly proposed common medical entrance test for MBBS and BDS courses (NEET UG) by MCI indicated the pressure that is mounting; as days are progressing many States are trying to put pressure through their respective state governments. Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamilnadu & Jammu Kashmir secured exception from NEET UG; the latest being Karnataka which got a stay from the high court objecting NEET UG in 2012.
In Ahmedabad parents are pressurizing the state government to cancel NEET UG in 2012, West Bengal too will take a decision after listening to the stake holders (parents, students & MCI views). Medical Council of India is cornered because they have no defense their objection to allow regional languages is the main cause of concern or loop hole that states are pointing at. Syllabus which has been set to favor CBSE students is another reason, one can’t suddenly make a change to the system in a go.
As per latest news, Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan has requested the center to exempt Maharashtra from NEET UG this year stating indifference in syllabus compared to state boards and timing of the announcement.
MCI should allow time for the state boards to revamp the curriculum to make it inline with the CBSE boards. States are planning curriculum which can keep their students par with central board students who have a rigorous curriculum as compared to state board students. Is it time for MCI to finally say that term ‘Postponed’? Do share your thoughts!
