The Medical Council of India will finally stick with the single entrance cum eligibility tests for undergraduate & postgraduate courses. The tests which were named last year as National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for Under Graduate Courses (NEET-UG) & National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for Post Graduate Courses (NEET-PG) will breathe life for the academic session 2013 to 2014.
MCI has managed to gain necessary amendments required to make the medical CET possible for next year admissions. Though initial idea was to have the NEET UG on May 13 2012 and NEET PG in January 2012, MCI or CBSE couldn’t sustain the idea vowing several reasons including opposed views from several states (Andhra Pradesh, Tamilnadu, West Bengal etc). Thankfully it will be possible for next year admissions, present +1 students should gear up for NEET UG and Medicos willing to do further studies after MBBS should be concentrating on NEET PG.
NEET or Medical CET will give access to all the medical colleges in India leaving very few like JIPMER & AIIMS. It will be interesting to see the move by the opposing states like Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka & Tamilnadu.
