NEET to officially roll out in 2013-14 now

Published On: 27 Mar 2012

 | Last Updated On: 13 Apr 2012

The Union Health Ministry has formally declared that the single NEET-UG (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for undergraduate) will be conducted by CBSE in 2013 and National Board of Examination will hold NEET-PG (Post Graduate) exams.

The Union health ministry also stated that the present reservation policies of different states will remain same under the new scheme and an eligibility merit list will be prepared for individual state officials to offer admission to students according to the admission criterias of their colleges situated in that respective state.

The MCI (Medical Council of India) has also made revisions in the NEET-UG syllabus. The cut-off criterion has been revised from percentage of absolute marks to percentiles so that all the seats are filled.  As per the sources from Ministry of Health and Family Welfare earlier some states had raised concern about the syllabus of NEET-UG, medium of examination, reservation of seats and about their own preparations to implement the common exam from 2012-2013 but the government has resolved all issues now.

A coordination Committee has been set up by the union health ministry which includes all stakeholders to address any concern related to the admission procedure such as medium of examination.

NEET is a common entrance exam for providing admissions to undergraduate and postgraduate medical courses in 271 medical colleges out of which 138 are government and 133 are private colleges. These medical colleges provide more than 31000 seats for MMBS courses and 11000 seats for MD courses. The objective of introducing NEET is to prevent students from the pressure of taking multiple entrance exams.

NEET will be applicable to all government and private medical colleges that come under MCI.The states such as Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal, Assam and Karnataka had opposed implementation of NEET in 2012. Gujarat, Maharashtra and Goa expressed their consent to accept NEET from 2013-14 but Andhra Pradesh asked for 2 years time to join NEET.

Currently, around 17 entrance exams are conducted against 32000 UG seats in medical colleges across India.
