Different states are planning strategies on How to go about with the 2016 MBBS Admissions as Supreme Court had directed the Central Government to conduct NEET ( All India Common Entrance Exam) for admission to undergraduate MBBS and BDS Courses
The Kerala government will be moving to Supreme Court on Monday to file a clarification petition that 1.27 lakh students have already appeared in its medical entrance exam this year. The state will file the petition seeking exemption from the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET).
Kerala and Gujarat are two states that have already conducted the medical entrance exams. Cancelling the state exams will lead to the stress and resentment among the candidates. Money has also been collected from the students for the conduct of Kerala State exam.
If the Kerala state entrance exam is not approved by the Supreme Court, the medical aspirants already appeared in the exam will be required to appear in the NEET, which will cause hardship for the students.
The Tamil Nadu Health Department is waiting for the final order of Supreme Court on the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) which is expected to come on May 3. Much before the Supreme Court’s order came; the sale of application forms for MBBS and BDS admissions had been announced from May 9. In Tamil Nadu, only Class XII board exam marks are considered for admissions for the medical seats.
The apex court did not restrict the State earlier from going ahead with its own admission procedures. The final order is scheduled on May 3. Tamil Nadu has been opposing the NEET since 2011. The SC on Friday said the entrance test for admission to MBBS and BDS courses for 2016-17 will be held as per schedule through the National Eligibility Entrance Test on May 1 and July 24.
The respective examinations cells and boards of Maharashtra and Karnataka have announced that the Maharashtra Common Entrance Test (MHT CET 2016) and Karnataka Common Entrance Test (K-CET 2016) will be held as per the declared schedule.
Assam and Maharashtra state will file a petition in Supreme Court against its verdict on National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET). As per the Supreme Court’s order announced on Thursday, the AIPMT to be held on May 1 will be considered as phase 1 of NEET. The second phase will be held on July 24.
In response to an earlier petition filed against the Supreme Court’s order, it rejected the request to postpone AIPMT 2016 scheduled on May 1. However, the court allowed the states to go ahead with the planned entrance tests as per the declared schedule.
