AIPMT likely to be treated as Phase 1 of NEET for admission in medical colleges


The Health Ministry may urge the apex court to consider AIPMT as Phase I of NEET.
New Delhi, April 28: After Supreme Court today recalled its controversial judgement scrapping single common entrance test (CET) for admission to MBBS, BDS and PG courses in all medical colleges, the students aspiring for admission into medical colleges will have to appear for CET this year itself but in a phased manner. The Health Ministry, in its tentative schedule to be presented to the Supreme Court, is likely to suggest that the All India Pre-Medical Entrance Test, 2016 (AIPMT) slated for May 1 should be treated as Phase I of National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET).
According to a report of Times of India, the Health Ministry may urge the apex court to consider AIMPT as Phase I of NEET. The Phase II can be conducted in mid-July for the rest of the candidates, who have not applied for AIPMT this year. ”We have worked out a tentative schedule which will be submitted to the SC. Since it is too late to conduct a fresh test, we will suggest that All India PMT be treated as Phase 1 of NEET and a second phase can be conducted separately for those who have not applied for AIPMT,” an official was quoted as saying.
Since the Supreme Court has directed to conduct a common entrance test (CET) for admission in medical colleges, a slew of medical entrance tests slated to happen over the next couple of months are expected to be cancelled. The Health Ministry’s decision came after a meeting between officials of the ministry, Medical Council of India (MCI) and CBSE to frame a time-schedule for conducting NEET following the direction of the apex court.
