SC verdict likely on entrance exams for medical courses
State governments and private universities had objected to a Medical Council of India (MCI) decision for a common entrance test.
New Delhi: The Supreme Court is likely to decide on Tuesday whether state governments and private universities can conduct separate entrance exams for admissions in medical courses. State governments and private universities had objected to a Medical Council of India (MCI) decision for a common entrance test.
The results of the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) will be declared based on Tuesday's decision. In February 2012, the MCI announced the National Entrance cum Eligibility Test, an all-India exam for entrance into MBBS and Post Graduation courses.
The idea was to simplify the admission process and do away with multiple entrance exams conducted by each state and private medical college. Several state government and private colleges raised objections and took the MCI to court.
Asking for more time, the Supreme Court asked the MCI, state universities and private institutions to conduct their respective entrance exams but not declare results till further orders from the apex court.
