NEET

 

What is NEET?

  • NEET stands for National Eligibility-Cum-Entrance Test.
  • NEET has been proposed by Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Govt, of India and Medical Council of India (MCl)
  • NEET has been proposed for.
  • Undergraduate (NEET-UG) Medical Courses like MBBS, BDS etc.
  • Post Graduate (NEET-PG) Medical Courses like M.S., M.D. etc.
  • NEET-UG will be the common entrance test for MBBS course across the country for almost all government and private medical College/Universities.

Why NEET?

  • To create an umbrella or single entrance exam for all medical aspirants in India.
  • Currently, India has 271 Medical Colleges (138 Govt. Colleges + 133 Private Colleges), offering a total of over 31000 MBBS seats.
  • Till now admission to these seats was done through national level and state level entrance exams. There were over 25 such different Medical Entrance Examinations in India for admission into various Govt. & Pvt. Medical colleges.
  • On an average a student appears in 7-9 entrance exams, thereby causing unnecessary stress on them as well as on parents.
  • Additionally, giving so many exams creates log of financial burden for the parents since each examination involves expenses like Application Fee & commuting to appear for the entrance test in various cities/at various test centres. So NEET will avoid unnecessary wastage of time. effort & money.
  • Moreover, multiple exams also pose the challenge of preparing for different syllabi and patterns for students. This further increases the stress among students.


Possible issues with NEET

  • NEET will be controlled by the central board; this would induce pressure into the minds of the students belonging to different State boards. Their state medical policies, syllabi and regulations may not be applicable under NEET.
  • NEET system does not include the management quota seats; it’s again a big hole in the system. People may doubt the merit listing of NEET.
  • Earlier, the students had many opportunities of writing the entrance tests; on an average, a student would write around 8-10 entrance tests to finally get admitted in his/her dream/desirable medical colleges/universities. So, the chances of getting a sea were high; if a studnet lost in one entrance.

  • Earlier, the students had many opportunities of writing the entrance tests; on an average, a student would write around 8-10 entrance tests to finally get admitted in his/her dream/desirable medical colleges/universities. So, the chances of getting a seat were high; if a student lost in one entrance exam, then he/she could work and make it one the other, but those opportunities would not be possible in NEET system. It is a single medical entrance system, hence the chance is only one. Hence, if a student loses in this exam, it would end up in shattering his/her dreams on medical field.
  • The top notch medical colleges like AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Sciences) have not been include in the NEET list.
  • Since it is a single medical entrance system for around 31,000 medical seats, the consistent of quality and implementation of error-free system is highly questionable!

  • Since the admission criteria does not include Board marks (apart from minimum eligibility), a student must prepare in a focused manner for NEET, from a reputed coaching institute.

  • The pattern analysis and preparing a student with the help of focused teaching, study material and tets papers is what a reputed coaching institute can offer in the uncertain territory of NEET 2013.
  • Experience with various national and state exams with a reputed coaching institute can offer the required edge to students.
