NEET 2016: Second phase test only for new candidates

5/2/2016

The second phase is only for students who did not register for AIPMT (NEET phase 1) exam.
 
Amidst the reports on the medical entrance exam this year, the government has finally given a nod for National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET), a common medical entrance test for admissions to MBBS, BDS and PG courses, which was quashed in 2013. 
 
On Friday April 29, the Health Ministry reported that the second phase is only for students who did not applied for AIPMT, also known as NEET phase 1. The phase 1 exam will be conducted tomorrow i.e. May 1, while the second phase will be held on July 24. The results for the same will get declared on August 17.
 
According to a report in The Hindu a senior Ministry official said:
 
"Many are looking at using the opportunity to prepare. We want it to be clear that the second phase test is only for students currently appearing in state examinations. If a student has been given an admit card, and does not take the test on May 1, he/she will not get another opportunity."
 
"The second phase is only for students who did not register for AIPMT. In some States, particularly Tamil Nadu, students are evaluated on the basis of marks they get in Class 12 Board exams and they will have to take the second phase of NEET," the official further added.
 
Student's reaction on shortage of time and preparation:
 
"We are not against NEET but we want whole exam in the second phase which is being conducted on July 24. With just one day left for the first phase of exams, the government can't put extra burden on us. Every student deserves equal time for the preparation," said Sudhanshu Sharma, one of the aspirants.
