Maharashtra govt. scraps MHCET for medical admissions
The Maharashtra government has announced that there will be no Common Entrance Test for medical admissions in the state. After the confusion over the MH-CET and NEET exams, the state govt. has made it clear that all the medical admissions in the state will be made through NEET this year.
Earlier in April, the Supreme Court has made the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) mandatory for MBBS and BDS admissions. Also, an ordinance was passed by the centre on May 24, according to which the admissions to government-run medical and dental institutes were to be made through MH-CET marks while the NEET was mandatory for only private and deemed institutes.
Now, the Maharashtra government has scrapped the MH-CET completely and will make all the medical admissions only on the basis of NEET scores. The medical aspirants in the state will not be required to appear in separate entrance tests for admission to different medical courses.
