Bengal medical aspirants in limbo over NEET exams
With each passing day the anxiety of the NEET candidates of the state is mounting because it would be difficult for these candidates to prepare for the NEET 2 scheduled to take place on August 17.
The matter is under the consideration of the Supreme Court whether the NEET would be introduced from this year or it would allow various states to hold their separate entrance examinations this year.
The matter appeared before the Supreme Court on Monday and instructed the Medical Council of India (MCI) to respond to various state governments plea to hold their separate entrance examinations.
A medical aspirant in West Bengal said that as they were preparing for the state level joint entrance examinations they had no idea about the national level single entrance examinations. “We are confused which exam we have to sit for. We were preparing on the basis of the syllabus of the state level entrance examinations. Now we come to know the NEET would be implemented. How would we compete in a different syllabus that too within a short period of time,” a candidate said.
Many medical aspirants in the state said that the syllabus of NEET would different from the state syllabus and hence they would face problems if the Apex Court issues order to introduce the NEET from this year.
As per the order of the Supreme Court NEET 1 was conducted on May 1 with AIPMT whereas the NEET 2 would be held on August 17. In an earlier hearing the court had ordered that the NEET should be conducted on two phases.
