NEET for medical will be held from this year itself - SC
Address: Supreme Court has given decision today in favor of NEET implementation from this year itself. Medical entrance exam in our country is not standard and there were many scams being reported in past few years on state level. To overcome this mess in Medical admission system Supreme court has decided to implement the NEET common test across India to standardize Medical admission process.
Supreme Court on Thursday has approved for National Eligibility Cum Entrance (NEET) exam to be held in the current academic session itself. The apex court also rejected request of state governments and private colleges that NEET should not be applicable on them.
The All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) scheduled for May 1 will be treated as first round of the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET). For students, who have not applied for AIPMT will be given opportunity to appear in round two on July 24. The combined result will be declared on August 17, in order to complete the admission process by September 30 a deadline set by the apex court in its previous orders. Around 6.5 lakh students are likely to appear for the entrance exams. We further clarify that notwithstanding any order passed by any Court earlier with regard to not holding NEET, this order shall operate. Therefore, no further order is required to be passed at this stage, the bench said.
