Supreme Court will review verdict on common medical entrance exam

The Supreme Court stated that it is willing to reconsider its earlier judgement that labelled the all-India common entrance test for medical admission as “unconstitutional”.

The controversies associated with the legitimacy of the all-India common entrance test for medical admissions is far from being over. In a latest flip flop, the Supreme Court of India stated last week that it is willing to reconsider an earlier decision to term the National Eligibility cum Entrance (NEET) as unconstitutional.

The apex court had declared the all India common entrance test for medical admission as unconstitutional while questioning whether or not MCI (Medical Council of India) was the right organization to look over the nationwide medical entrance exam. In support of the decision, the division bench stated that the NEET severely interfered with the rights of minority, private and linguistic institutions to admit students.

However, a bench headed by Justice HL Dattu confirmed on Wednesday that it is going to grant the government’s appeal for an open court hearing in the case.

It is worth mentioning here that with the revokal of the NEET, AIPMT was slated to return, albeit with the same pattern and syllabus as the former.

“The syllabus for AIPMT 2014 will be the same as NEET (UG) 2013. The format will also be the same. This will be a pen and paper test comprising objective-type multiple-choice questions. There will be 180 objective type questions from physics, chemistry, botany and zoology (45 questions from each subject) to be attempted in three hours, in one, single exam,” said Joseph Emmanuel, joint secretary (OSD) NEET, CBSE, the Hindustan Times reports.

Echoing the words of Emmanuel, Aakash Chaudhry, director, Aakash Education Services Ltd., said: AIPMT 2014 will be similar to NEET, and won’t affect students  preparing for the common medical entrance tests,”.

    NEET examination for all India level medical colleges should be reviewed again. State Govts. are always questionable on conducting the entrance exams. They are not fare in this process.

    , “The syllabus for AIPMT 2014 and NEET (UG) 2014 are not a worried matter for preparation. The practically state govt/private colleges not preferred the pattern of these guidelines and adopted monopoly of their gains. Therefore, the students compel to study according to these patterns and suffer. In the long term NEET will definitely helpful to controlled the admission procedure in Govt/Privet colleges to Medical Council of India(MCI) as well as State Govts.
