Student bodies oppose NEET.

Several student and youth bodies have opposed the national-level common medical entrance test (National Eligibility and Entrance Test) stating that it will cause a huge loss to students from the State.

At a roundtable conducted by Telugu Yuvatha and Telugu Nadu Students’ Federation here on Sunday, the speakers said students aspiring for medical education were already preparing from EAMCET in the State and the sudden decision by the Centre had created a confusion among them and parents.

Representatives of DYFI, AIYF, SFI, AISF, AIDSO, and AISB participated in the meet apart from those of the organisers — TNSF and Telugu Yuvatha. Addition of the medicine seats in the State to the Central pool would result in a loss to some backward classes and Muslim minorities, they said.

They alleged that the Centre was trying to take the education sector completely under its control and the national-level common entrance test was part of the reforms initiated by Union Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal. It would cause loss to several States as there was no common syllabus, curriculum and medium for all States, they pointed out.
