Medical Colleges demand to make NEET optional

Despite of many States buckling up for national level common entrance test for admission to MBBS courses – the NEET (National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Exam) from 2013, some medical colleges have proposed the Center to make the exam optional.

This was decided in a meeting held by the EPSI (Education Promotion Society for India) on July 25, 2012. The meeting was attended by representatives including Pro-Chancellors and Vice-Chancellors of about 30 colleges and universities of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, New Delhi, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh.

Reasons for opposition

Sources from the society revealed that curriculum is not uniform throughout all states. India has 24 boards. A common entrance test will only be purposeful if all States follow the same curriculum. It will add on the pressure to rural students and others who cannot afford coaching institutes. Moreover, if a student loses NEET, they will be losing one complete year. In case NEET is made optional, student can appear for other exams.

Though state governments have introduced a central syllabus for pre-university science students, and decided to implement NEET in 2013, it will work only if the standard of education is improved from Class I. Schools must follow Central syllabus right from the basic classes.
