Ordinance Issued to Defer NEET This Year

In a deja vu, the Union government on Friday issued an ordinance postponing the implementation of NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) for medical and dental courses in institutions under state governments. The NEET will apply in these institutions from next year, 2017 onwards, said the statement.

It means the NEET 2016 will be applicable only to those who are applying for admission to Central government and private management institutions under the management quota. It may be noted that Karnataka and other state governments had asked the Centre to defer the NEET for this year in view of reforming their own system of entrance exam.

As NEET was laready tken by 6.5 lakh students on May 1 and another 8 lakhs are taking it on July 24, there was considerable confusion among the students over the fate of their first exam. Most of them have decidd forego the results in the first and prepare for the second one next month.

The confusion triggered after the Supreme Court said all students should take only one common entrance test, the NEET, for entry to medical colleges, owing to several complaints about corruption in states and in private medical colleges which hold their own exams.
