Single Medical Entrance for MBBS and PG Medical Courses: Supreme Court

Published On: 11 Mar 2011

 | Last Updated On: 13 Jun 2011

Supreme court has again put its seal of approval on single eligibility-cum-entrance exam for MBBS and post graduate medical courses starting this academic session.

Medical Council of India(MCI) had issued a notification on December 21st introducing the exam National Eligibility cum Entrance Test(NEET) for MBBS and postgraduate admissions and fixed 50% marks as cut-off for being eligible for admission. The Union Government had called off the national common entrance test for medical students this year, stating that MCI had to seek its prior mandatory approval and termed it as invalid. The MCI claimed that the notification had come with prior approval of government of India.

The apex court had previously observed that MCI being a statutory authority could notify rules and regulations and approval of the court was not required for the same.

The bench of justices RV Raveendran and AK Patnaik refusing to interfere with the issue said that if MCI has the power to proceed with implementing the notification anybody aggrieved by the notification may approach MCI.

Benefits to students:

The Supreme courts approval will reduce stress on aspirants who have to appear between 12 and 17 entrance examinations to seek admissions for Medical courses.

There are some 271 medical colleges in the country, of which 138 are government-administered and 133 are under private management. The Supreme Court order, which may come into effect from this academic year, may benefit at least 6 lakh students, allowing them to focus on a single all-India exam.
 
Single Medical Entrance Test from next year?


Medical Council of India (MCI) has to now take a decision on conducting single medical entrance test this year or next year as the last date of AIPMT as well as AFMC are over. Other medical entrance exams have also put out their notification on exams and each test has application fee almost all the aspirant students have applied by paying these fees separately. If all these tests get cancelled on account of the Single Entrance Exam ordered by the Supreme Court, the fees will have to be reimbursed. It will make a heavy financial loss to the institutions since they had incurred a heavy expense for printing the prospectus and application forms as also for arranging the online facility for applying.

Experts say that Supreme Court's approval on allowing the Medical Council of India (MCI) to conduct a single entrance test for MBBS may have to wait till next year for it to be implemented as this decision is a short notice and also added that students may have to study 30 percent extra for the all India entrance.
