The Medical Council of India (MCI) has barred students who have completed class 12 examination through open and distance mode from attending common medical entrance examination (NEET).
The NIOS- National Institute of Open Schooling under the human resource development (HRD) ministry is of the view that this will deprive thousands of students the opportunity to pursue medical education.
More than 2 lakh students register every year with NIOS and close to 3,000 had registered for NEET exam in 2017. MCI proposed that these students would not be on par with those from the regular mode.
NIOS officials claimed that in the past, MCI board of governors had said if the required criteria of graduate medical education regulation is fulfilled by students appearing in 10+2 exams by the NIOS, they would be eligible for MBBS admission.
The syllabus was more rigorous and students are examined on the syllabus for class XI and XII, whereas other boards examine learners just on class XII syllabus.
