It Will Take Four Years To Implement CET Nation Wide – Sibal

It will take four years to implement the common entrance test for engineering and common entrance test for medical college admissions through out India stated Kapil Sibal. Earlier HRD Ministry had several meetings with NIT, IIIT and IIT councils to arrive at a decision on a common engineering entrance test. The conclusions led to a new selection process for IITs and NITs. IIITs, Deemed and Centrally funded Institutes too are expected to adopt the newly proposed engineering test.

The test will take board marks into consideration for the selection process, NITs will give a 40% weightage to board marks while IITs see students under top 20 percentile pool to be eligible to write the JEE Advanced. IIITs, Deemed and Centrally funded hasn’t made any announcement related to their selection process. It is expected that IIITs, Deemed and Centrally funded Institutes too go with the selection process proposed by NIT council.

Medical CET

Eventually an year ago, The Medical Council of India (MCI) along with CBSE has proposed a nation wide medical CET for MBBS & BDS courses and announced the test as NEET UG. The decision shook all the students across different states including state governments, several states (Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal, Tamil nadu etc) argued showing the difference in syllabus. The syllabus for NEET UG was uploaded on MCI website and the response got from student community was mixed.

After all the efforts MCI couldn’t sustain to keep it going and they had to defer NEET UG by one year. MCI website states that NEET UG (the medical CET) will take place in 2013, however few states will have a negotiation to defer by one more year.

HRD Minister Kapil Sibal’s objective was to have a one nation one test for each course instead of writing multiple exams. The students are over burdened by preparing for different exams, almost one each for one college. For example NITs use AIEEE, IITs use JEE, VIT University use VITEEE, BITS Pilani uses BITSAT and so on. Similarly for medical there are several entrance exams, AMU Medical Entrance Test, AIPMT, State level CET, AIIMS Medical Test, JIPMER Medical Test, AFMC Medical Test and so on.

The next generation students should be saved from such thing of writing multiple entrance exams, it probably happens by four years says Sibal our HRD Minister.

  1. PLEASE LET US KNOW CLEARLY IS IT GOING TO BE KCET 2013 OR NEET 2013 IN KARNATAKA FOR MEDICAL ASPIRANTS… PLEASE LET ME KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE PLEASE

  2. NEET is not going to come for another 4 years as Sibal said. First the syllabus needs to be unifined all over India and all the teachers and students to be trained to get uniformity which will take at least 5 years.

    Let’s forget NEET

    1. you are wrong ……look at mci website http://mciindia.org/NEET/NEETUG.aspx
      clearly written that neet ug will happen from 2013 onwards so prepare for neet syllabus is also given there but there is not clear about pattern and style of question paper ……as they have not given any sample paper
      ……….
      there is lots of confusion…. there should be official statement………

  3. if anyone have any latest info on neet….plz upload it here……mci is really delaying the matters badly…..we still even dont know about the eligibility criteria……prof nandakumar sir plz give us some more authentic info on neet……..

    1. There is no authentic info.. Because there has been no advances in process of NEET since 27th Feb. It has been stayed in states like Karnataka. PIL has been filled in Gujarat by Parents association of Medical aspirants. J&k and Andhra pradesh have already been exempted till 2014. West bengal is in dillema.. although Kapil sibal is in talks with Mamta Banerjee. There are no sample papers out. There is no clearity on pattern. And there has been no official announcement after the Gazzeted document of 27th feb by MCI.

      The link I posted before by TOI states Karnataka high court has stayed NEET on 5th May 2012. But It is not clear that stay is applicable for India or only for Karnataka.
      So whomsoever tells you anything… truth is nothing is clear and decided yet with 100% conviction.

  4. One nation One test shall be implemented fro the year 2013, both for Medicine and Engineering stream. This will provide a minimum standard for the educstion. The draft syllabus for the respective exams shall be published by the first week of August and responses shall be invited from the concerned. The final syllabus shall be poublished during the first week of September. The Question paper shall be set by giving equal weightage for all topics in the syllabus.

  6. WHY THERE IS NEED OF NEET.CHANCES OF SELECTION INCREASES BY GIVING MINIMUM 5-10 ENTRANCE TEST.WHO WILL EXPLAIN THIS TO HIGHER AUTHORITY.WHO SAYS MULTIPLE EXAM INCREASES TENSION WHEN STUDENT HAS STUDIED THE SAME 12 TH STANDARD.

    1. NEET PG is proposed for 2013, just 6 months left, no info on pattern of exam yet, how do we prepare for the exam ?? are they expecting us to cover the syllabus in 1 day ?? Must sy that politicians are only after vote bank politics, people welfare is the last thing on their agenda, Mr. Sibbal and Mr.Azad please stop playing with lives of youbg students, try to put yourself in our shoes and then think.

  7. will someone tell what was that stay of karnataka high court on 5th may 2012.. was it a spoof published in TOI.. or some real thing

  8. dear shrikant
    i want to know whether neet ug will happen or not?
    because at mci website it is written that neet will happen in 2013 .thereis lots of confusion in students minds………..

    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.

  9. NEET should take place in 2014 because 10 months of preperation in not enough for national level entrance test.

    1. for neet ug u have to prepare only ncert & it will maximum takes 3-4 months prepration only with proper time table init 3-4 Hr study & nothing more .& what did u think
