NEET for medical will be held from this year itself – SC

Supreme Court has given decision today in favor of NEET implementation from this year itself. Medical entrance exam in our country is not standard and there were many scams being reported in past few years on state level. To overcome this mess in Medical admission system Supreme court has decided to implement the NEET common test across India to standardize Medical admission process.

Supreme Court on Thursday has approved for National Eligibility Cum Entrance (NEET) exam to be held in the current academic session itself. The apex court also rejected request of state governments and private colleges that NEET should not be applicable on them.

The All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) scheduled for May 1 will be treated as first round of the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET). For students, who have not applied for AIPMT will be given opportunity to appear in round two on July 24. The combined result will be declared on August 17, in order to complete the admission process by September 30 — a deadline set by the apex court in its previous orders. Around 6.5 lakh students are likely to appear for the entrance exams. “We further clarify that notwithstanding any order passed by any Court earlier with regard to not holding NEET, this order shall operate. Therefore, no further order is required to be passed at this stage,” the bench said.

Patna University (PU) introducing Entrance exam for 3 years degree courses

Usually the undergraduate and postgraduate  admissions for general courses are being done based on the percentage in school or college. But Patna university has taken decision to conduct faculty wise entrance exam for admission in such courses.

This will impact the students largely. Student who wants to take take admission for bachelor course for art has to take the exam in same faculty.But need to apply separately to the institutions where they wish to secure admission.

This exam would be like CAT  and will have option based questions.

The sale of application forms for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses will start from May 2. While the last date for submission of filled-in forms is June 4, the final date for completion of the admission process is July 5. The induction meet of newly-admitted students in different colleges and postgraduate departments will be on July 8 and 9. Classes will commence on July 11.”The last day for registration is April 16.

Dyslexic students are not eligible for IIM-Indore course

Premier management institute not allowing to aspirants with dyslexia to apply for five-year Integrated Management Programme (IMP)

Only people with disabilities low vision blindness, hearing impairment and locomotor disability/cerebral palsy are allowed under the quota for people with disabilities. Previously there was option of other was available in online application form but now that has been removed. 3% seats are reserved for the people with disabilities.

We need to wait for the reaction from the activists. This is something new has been seen in recent years. Institute’s step is clearly a demotivating signals for the people with  disabilities.

National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) launch this year

Supreme Court gave a green signal to National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET), a common medical entrance test for admissions to MBBS, BDS and PG courses, which was discarded in 2013.

Medical Council of India (MCI) is not in favour of conducting the test this year due to time constraints and preparation problems.

Maharashtra Government has requested the Indian Medical Council (IMC) not to conduct the admissions to medical and dental courses through the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) and instead continue with MH-CET for this year because NEET needs to be based on CBSE syllabus and for that HSC syllabus need to be upgraded.

In 2013, NEET was conducted and admissions were being conducted in medical colleges based on the NEET. Later Christian Medical College, Vellore, requested in  SC and NEET scrapped, so in 2014 and 2015 the admissions in Maharashtra had been done via MH-CET.

NEET is required because Medical admission process acros India should be uniform through a common test. Few weeks back , AMU (Aligarh Muslim University)  conducted its medical entrance. And, states of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh have always been against the NEET. As there are less coaching opportunities in the state, people in Tamil Nadu want the admissions to be based on “Class 12 marks and 69 percent reservation after giving 15 percent of the seats to the all-India quota.

Many of the Private medical colleges are against NEET because they dont want to give up the right of admission based on the marks there are more opportunity of getting donations  if admissions has been done based on  some local exams.As well as more chances are there in cheating at all levels if exam is being conducted locally to state city or university. Thats why whole country’s institutes are scared of NEET.

But right now NEET for this year will be difficult to conduct as time is less and dates would be around May.
