Government clears ordinance to keep state board out of NEET ambit
New Delhi : Government on Friday approved promulgation of an ordinance to keep state boards of NEET ambit, at least for this academic year. NEET has been a part of the uniform medical entrance examination.
This stands straight against the Supreme Court verdict which had mentioned that all the government colleges, deemed universities and private institution will be able to admit students via NEET.
The next phase of the exam is scheduled for July 24.
After 6.5 lakh students appeared in the first phase of NEET on May 1, it is likely that issuance of the ordinance will free remaining students of the state boards from appearing for the second phase on July 24.
Though the decision is restricted to this particular academic year and from next year they will have to become part of the uniform entrance exam.
The exam will be applicable for those applying for Central government and private medical colleges.
- NEET not applicable for state board students for this academic year
- Once the ordinance is issued, students of state government boards will not have to sit for NEET on July 24
- They will have to become the part of uniform entrance test from the next year
- The exam will be applicable for those applying for Central government and private medical colleges.
