SC to give final verdict on medical eligibility and entrance examination today

SC to give final verdict on medical eligibility and entrance examination today

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday is expected to deliver its final verdict on the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) which will decide the process for admissions into all medical and dental courses.
In an interim order passed in May this year, the apex court had directed the Medical Council of India (MCI) and all private colleges to start their admission process, as per the old guidelines where the MCI, state governments and private colleges conduct their separate exams.
Aspiring medicos have been arguing that a single NEET will make the admission process simpler and more transparent. A sting operation conducted by CNN-IBN in April this year, however, had exposed how private medical colleges were illegally selling medical seats for crores of rupees.
The Supreme Court's impending verdict has also caused immense confusion amongst students as the counselling dates were announced almost a month after the results were out and most of the colleges were waiting for the verdict.
The medical education standoff started with the MCI proposing a common entrance test for MBBS, Dental and PG Medical courses. The proposal was, however, opposed by the private medical and dental colleges and they moved the apex court. The court then ordered the MCI to conduct NEET and also allowed all states and private colleges to conduct their entrance exams but asked them not to declare results till the verdict is pronounced.
Most of the students believe that an all-India common entrance examination will streamline the entire admission process and make it more transparent.
