Common medical test: No clarity as MCI proposes NEET in two phases and Supreme Court reserves order


The Centre and the Medical Council of India (MCI) today proposed to hold the National Entrance-cum-Eligibility Test (NEET) for undergraduate and postgraduate medical and dental courses in government and private institutions in two phases this year and asked the Supreme Court to treat the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) to be conducted by the CBSE on May 1 as its first phase.
The Supreme Court, which was expected today to rule whether medical aspirants will take NEET or AIPMT, has reserved its verdict on the matter.
This effectively means more than 6 lakh students, who are scheduled to take the AIPMT on May 1, have no clarity so far on whether or not the entrance exam will be held as per schedule.
The MCI has proposed that candidates can instead take the NEET in two phases - on May 1 and July 24. The results could be announced on August 17, it said, while the admission procedure for MBBS and MD courses could be completed by September 30.
The proposal, however, has been opposed by some state governments and private medical colleges.
The Supreme Court had earlier this month recalled its 2013 verdict quashing the MCI notification mandating NEET for undergraduate and postgraduate medical courses.
The recall meant that more than 600 privately-run and minority medical institutions will not be able to conduct their own entrance examinations and will draw students from the list of the successful candidate who appear for the NEET.
The review was sought by the MCI and the AP Private Medical and Dental Colleges.
