MCI tries to end NEET stand-off.

The Medical Council of India has initiated steps to break the deadlock over conducting the national common entrance exam for MBBS admissions from this year. The state government had objected to the ‘National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test, saying that thousands of students pursuing Intermediate courses in Telugu medium would be at a loss if NEET is held only in English and Hindi.

An MCI team will meet officials of medical education department on Saturday to discuss the issue and clear the doubts about NEET. The team will also meet minister for medical and health D.L. Ravindra Reddy. The state government feels that Eamcet for medical seats should not be replaced by NEET this year as the students have not got enough time to prepare for the new format. However, MCI claims that the NEET syllabus was posted on its website in July and it had also sought feedback nationally from all the stakeholders. The MCI made it clear that it will separately release state-wise and national-wise merit lists, and the states can conduct admissions on their own by following the merit lists and implementing their own reservation matrix.
