AIIMS refuses to participate in NEET (UG) for MBBS admission also
After refusing to hold post graduate entrance exam for students across the country, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences has now told the government that it does not want to join the common under graduate exam too.The AIIMS authority feel that as AIIMS maintains higher standards and following NEET/ CET syllabus would mean reducing their own level-which is uncalled for.
The decision on the matter will be taken at the next AIIMS governing body meeting.
Sources say AIIMS is an autonomous body and under Act of the Parliament it can conduct its own exams. “AIIMS maintains higher standards and following CET syllabus would mean reducing its status, which is uncalled for,” an AIIMS source said.

The ministry is also trying to convince AIIMS for conducting PG exam. “They have an experience in conducting the exam that’s why we approached them. But they expressed their inability in conducting it,” said a senior official at the health ministry.
The Medical Council of India (MCI), which has already announced the exam to start from next year is, on the other hand, running out of time as various states like Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and West Bengal have also expressed their objections on the common test. The MCI members also suspect that the moment CET is notified, many states would approach the court. “The states have issues concerning to negative marking, queries related to the reservation policy and seats for private colleges etc. There are language issues as well — the states want that the exam should be conducted in regional languages. We are looking into all these issue,” sources in MCI said. MCI is looking into the suggestions made by a committee set up by them which has recommended that there should be objective-type questions and a percentile score to determine the merit of all applicants in the proposed National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test for admission to MBBS courses from next year.
