Students aspiring for MBBS seats will not take the EAMCET route but write the National Entrance and Eligibility Test ( NEET / CET ) by Medical Council of India (MCI) from next year.

The test will be conducted at the national level by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on behalf of MCI but the counselling and selection would be done by the State government, Director of Medical Education P. Sampath Kumar told The Hindu.

He said the MCI was keen to do the selection of candidates also after the test, but the State government retained the initiative for its own reasons. The decision to join the national test was taken in view of the insistence by MCI that there be uniform standards of testing for admissions instead of each State having its own question papers. Nevertheless, there would be both State and national rankings.

About 65,000 students appeared for medicine stream of EAMCET last year for 4,300 seats in 12 government and 20 private medical colleges in the State. An all-party meeting convened by the government a few months ago to discuss whether the State could join the national pool for allocation of seats did not find favour with the parties.

A.P. and Jammu & Kashmir are the only States which were exempted from joining the Central pool by a Presidential order. The State had to contribute 15 per cent of the seats to outsiders but its own students would have got an additional 1,500 seats at the national level if it had joined the scheme, Dr. Sampath Kumar said.

He added that the intake of MBBS seats was likely to go up by 1,000 next year with the addition of 50 seats each in government sector and opening of a few new private medical colleges.

CET – SINGLE UMBRELLA

The decision to join the national test was also hinted at by Health Minister D.L. Ravindra Reddy earlier in the day.

He parried a question by media persons when asked if a petition in the Supreme Court challenging the MCI directive to States to come under a single umbrella was a hindrance.

    My kids is there in 11th Science in Mumbai this Year. I am basically confused as the books of CBSE level is comparativly different from Maharashtra syllabus. So why don’t we make one common books as CBSE (Under the Head of NCERT) to all the colleges all over in India so as to reduce the burden of student of Maharashtra. CBSE books is applicable in Delhi no doubt it is excellent books as all the topic related with MMBS have been scrutinesed and expressed in well manner but if you compare with Maharashtra syllabus, the student will cunfused compeletely for which books they should go ahead as time is precise.

    It is not possible for State level Student of Maharashtra to Mug-up both the Syllabus in a Year or two. So I sincerly request you to put mercy on those students who are on state level syllebus or away from CBSE ( NCERT) syllabus books.

    Please think atleast 100 times before you take as such decision as students are only the Future of the Country and do not link it with politics or currption as the Enginnering or Medical Courses now-a-days becomes the earning potoential for big Agencies or else nothing who earn plenty of money from the rich background family student by leaking the paper and impressed them to seccure >99.99% in this competitive Exam. So before you make certian conclusion please think about the poor backgroud family student too.

    Hope you would take immediate steps in implementing the present situation of Education as well as competitive Exam as save the lives of the many poor students.

    Thanks & B. Regards.
