NEET – Common Entrance Medical Exam From 2013

Medical aspirants – NEET is all set to be rolled out from 2013. This means that now there will be common entrance test for admission to all UG programmes and that will be called NEET or National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test. This exam will be conducted by CBSE. (Source: Times of India)

As of now, there are some 17 entrance tests held to fill more than 30,000 seats in around 271 medical colleges. Now with NEET, there will be a single entrance examination for all these colleges offering MBBS courses. Basically this will cover all the medical colleges coming under the ambit of Medical Council of India (MCI). 138 of these colleges are run by governments while 133 come under private management.

The ministry has also set a coordination committee to address any issue related to admission process, reservations, regional language as medium for conduct of NEET etc.  Another important change is that the qualifying criterion has been changed from percentage of absolute marks to percentile to ensure that no seat remains unfilled. This was done to address the concerns that some seats might go unfilled with the introduction of common entrance. The MCI has also revised the syllabus for the entrance exam.

What do yo think about the new entrance test? Will be reduce the stress among students?
