Scrap medical entrance test, says Karuna

Chennai, Oct 21, 2012, PTI: Opposing the proposed National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for medical courses, DMK, a key ally of UPA, today sought the Centre’s immediate intervention to abolish the system of entrance test. “There are reports that the Centre proposed to conduct entrance test for medical education. The Central Government should intervene and take steps in scrapping the test. That is our stand,” DMK chief M Karunanidhi said, writing in party organ “Murasoli”. He also asked the Jayalalithaa Government to take constructive steps to safeguard the interests of students of the state instead of focusing on ‘vindictive action and filing defamation cases’ against DMK leaders.

Andhra Pradesh high court gives National Eligibility cum Entrance Test relief to Andhra Pradesh

Wondering why even a state government is feeling vulnerable and knocking the doors of the courts, a division bench of the high court comprising Justice V Eswaraiah and Justice N Ravi Shankar on Wednesday stayed the applicability of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) for Andhra Pradesh for the academic year 2013. The bench was dealing with a writ petition filed by the principal secretary, medical and health. The petitioner informed the court that the Article 371 (D) of the Constitution gave special status to the state and the Presidential order provided for local and non local reservations in admissions to professional courses. The proposed national eligibility (NEET) test nullified the constitutional safeguards. “The rules governing NEET framed by Medical Council of India cannot override the Article 371(D) of the constitution,” the government contended. K G Krishna Murthy, additional advocate general, told the court that the state had to take to judicial recourse to protect

PG entrance test: J&K Aspirants in dilemma

Srinagar, Oct 6: Uncertainty has shrouded the future of thousands of medical students vying for different post-graduate courses in Jammu and Kashmir as government is yet to take final decision over inclusion of state-run medical colleges in the national eligibility test through National Board of Examination. While notification issued by the Medical Education Department has clarified that they are not participating in the nationalized common medial entrance examination being conducted in November this year, the appearance of available seats of Government Medical Colleges in Srinagar and Jammu on the National Board of Examination website has brought a situation of panic and depression to the students vying for the PG courses. “The delay in final decision will create confusion in our minds and our future prospects will be at stake till any decision is taken,” the PG aspirants told Greater Kashmir. “We don’t understand why the government is confused,” the aspirants said. “There are app

For PG entrance test, students must travel 2,000km

BANGALORE: Medical students aiming for higher education through the national entrance test found themselves in a tizzy with some of them getting exam centres as far as 2,000km away. In some extreme cases, the website couldn't handle the load, and it went on the blink. The National Eligibilitycum-Entrance Test for postgraduate courses (NEETPG ), introduced to rationalize entry to higher education in medicine, will be held between November 23 and December 6 at select test centres in 33 cities across the country for 2013 admissions. Prometric India, which provides technical support to conduct online exams, denied suggestions of NEETPG website crash and cited 64,000 registrations till Saturday . The registrations began on Friday. Some students said unavailable vouchers at a few centres created chaos. Hundreds of students now have to factor in the logistics of long-haul travel. A Bangalore student on Saturday was given the option of taking the exam at Gurgaon, Delhi or Punjab. "

Prometric Website leaves Mumbai students hanging

Early birds don’t always get the worm. A 24-year-old MBBS intern from Thane will have to travel all the way to Dehradun to appear for her PG medical entrance exam, NEET. Due to a technical error, she failed to secure Mumbai as centre despite registering on time. Same thing happened to many others from the city when the online registration for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test 2013, which is being held for the first time this year, opened on Thursday at 9.30am. The registration was on a first-come-first-serve basis. Many who registered in the morning failed to get a centre in Mumbai and were forced to choose places such as Jammu & Kashmir, Uttarakhand, and Jharkhand. Ironically, those who logged in after 12.30pm were able to secure Mumbai easily. Doctors said the website kept hanging at regular intervals. “We are feeling cheated; authorities should have warned us against accessing the website owing to the glitches,” a doctor said. A doctor said she logged on at 9.30am. But

Shortage of DNB CET forms and available slots for Exam

Many students reported that forms for DNB CET were finished even before the lunch break on 3rd Oct 2012, the first day of availability of forms at Axis Bank branches. This shows that NBE has grossly underestimated the number of required forms for this session of CET. We received reports for non availability of forms at many branches of Delhi, for example Barahkhamba road branch, Safdarjung Enclave, then at Assam and many branches in South India. This caused a lot of problems and uncertainty among the students. They are also tensed as they fear of not getting the exam center slot at the centers near to their home towns. According to the DNB CET twitter account (@DNBCET) many students are complaining of slots being housefull at almost all the exam centers even before 2PM i.e. 5hrs after the opening of registration of DNB CET. If you faced this problem that is nonavailability of Forms or exam slot reply to this post with the Axis bank branch where the forms are not available or the

Andhra Pradesh seeks more time for NEET

The state government on Monday once again sought exemption from the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (Neet) for admission into MBBS and BDS colleges. In a letter to Union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad on Monday, chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy requested that the Centre give time to the state’s students till 2014 to join Neet. “Our students will write Neet in 2014. I request you to issue orders exempting the state from Neet-2013,” the chief minister wrote. The move was necessitated after the Supreme Court asked the states which had expressed their willingness to join Neet by 2013 itself. Earlier, the Medical Council of India (MCI) had expressed helplessness when the state had sought exemption from the Neet-2013 on the grounds that the issue was sub judice. The chief minister wanted exemption from Neet, scheduled for May 12, 2013, since its introduction in the state would involve making amendments to the AP Educational Institutions Act, 1983 and Dr NTR University of Hea

Centre to states: NEET CET mandatory

The common entrance test for post-graduate (PG) medical students is mandatory for all government and private colleges. Making it clear to the state governments, the Union health ministry has written to them informing that the new test system has been notified and they will have to adhere to it. Earlier the proposal to conduct common test had received stiff opposition from some states. However, citing a judgement of 2010 by the Supreme Court of India, the Union health ministry made it clear that states have no option but to come on board. The Union health ministry in their recent letter to the states have shared all information on the new test so that it can be widely publicised in their states. As reported first by this newspaper, the first ever all-India “online test” for post-graduate medical students will be conducted from November 23, 2012. The new system offers flexibility for aspirants to choose any date between November 23 to December 6, 2012. After following paper-pencil f

Students are not happy with NEET dates

The announcement of preponing medical entrance examination for post-graduate courses at short notice has stunned students. This is inconvenient and could affect their career, they fear. The national board of examination has come out with a new date for holding nation-wide examination for post-graduate medical entrance. This includes MS, MD and diploma courses (NEET-PG). Medical post-graduate (PG) aspirants are shocked to get the dates of NEET-PG examinations. It will be held online between November 23 and December 6 this year in 33 cities across the country. Earlier, All India PG entrance examinations used to be held in the second week of January. Hence students were expecting NEET-PG will also be held in the second week of January 2013. This was indicated by the MCI in March 2012. But advancing the examinations by two months has shocked students. Students will get admissions to PG courses in various institutes all over the nation only after clearing this examination. A doctor

Tamil Nadu opposes NEET PG / UG

Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa today strongly opposed the Centre's move to conduct All India Common Entrance Test for admission to UG and PG courses in medical colleges and reiterated her demand that Tamilnadu be exempted from it. In a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, a copy of which was released to the media here, she said Tamilnadu should be exempted from this and allowed to continue with its existing system for admission to UG and PG Medical seats. Jayalalithaa expressed surprise and distress over the unilateral decision taken by the Centre without taking into account the protests and in spite of the stay against the Common Entrance Test obtained in the Madras High Court which holds good until it was vacated or until the writ petition was disposed of. Jayalalithaa said the Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare had earlier assured that the States would be consulted and their views considered before evolving any policy decision with regard to the conduct of an
