In Gujarat PG Admission will be done on the basis of NEET Score
Gujarat Universities Vice – Chancellors decided that the admission in post graduate medical courses in local colleges will be done on the basis of the National Eligibility Entrance Test – Post ( NEET – PG ) Graduate score.
All the Vice Chancellors of the state have decided that a common university merit list would be prepared and admissions would be given based on this one merit list.
The NEET PG results had driven a wedge between the students, as those who had scored better marks in NEET PG said that admission should be granted only on the basis of the entrance test.
On the other hand, those who did not fare well in NEET – PG wanted that the admission should be given using 50% score of MBBS and 50% NEET PG score.
The decision of a common university merit list has also miffed students of Gujarat University, who were hoping to get a preference in the PG admissions as GU has highest 450 PG medical seats.
Andhra Pradesh to join NEET in 2014
After a much chaos on joining NEET ( National Eligibility – Entrance Test ), Andhra Pradesh chief minister has agreed to join the common entrance test from 2014. The Andhra Pradesh High Court has passed a stay order on conducting the exam in the state in 2013.
The chief minister explained that the state is not ready to conduct the national level common entrance test next year as the class XII syllabus has been designed keeping in mind the format of EAMCET. The HRD Ministry has proposed a common entrance test called ‘NEET’ for undergraduate and postgraduate medical seats from 2013.
A petition was filed in the high court by the Principal Secretary, medical and health seeking a stay order on state joining the NEET in 2013. The petitioner argued that the AP enjoys a special status as per the Article 371 ( D ) of the constitution and under this Act, the orders given by the president of India are applicable for non – local and local students for admission to professional courses.
The proposed common entrance test abolishes the constitutional protection. The government stated that the norms devised by the MCI ( Medical Council of India ) for NEET exam cannot overrule the Article 371 ( D ) of the constitution.
If the state students were to take the proposed exam next year, they would have been at a disadvantage.
The Chief Secretary stated that it’s been only one year for the introduction of new syllabus as per the NEET format in plus 2. The current class XII students have only studied the state syllabus so they will be at a disadvantage if they are to take the NEET exam next year. Also the question paper for NEET exam will be provided in Hindi and English which is again a problem for Telugu medium students. The state assigns weightage to class XII marks while preparing EAMCET merit list but no such provision is available in EAMCET.
AP NEET PG Medical aspirants must appear for Exam
The Principal Secretary, Health, Medical and Family Welfare, K Ratna Kishore said that NEET PG 2013 will be conducted as scheduled from 23rd November, 2012 to 6th December, 2012 and there should not be any doubts in that.
Andhra Pradesh High Court has issued an interim stay on NEET PG, but the case is now in Supreme Court. The hearing of the NEET PG case was for hearing on 22nd November, 2012 but is postponed to 27th November 2012. As a result no decision could be taken regarding NEET PG. As no order issued by Medical Council of India ( MCI ), NEET PG will be conducted as scheduled, he said. He also informed that the state government has no right to stop the exam.
As MCI issued a NEET PG registration notification, state government of Andhra Pradesh and private medical colleges in AP approached High Court requesting exemption from NEET PG. AP govt requested that they will join NEET PG from 2014. High Court has issued interim stay on this. The case is now in Supreme Court for hearing.
As now the case postponed to 27th November, 2012, no judgment is given by supreme court and MCI also did not inform anything to AP government.
MCI decided to conduct a common national entrance test for postgraduate courses in medical and Postgraduate diploma courses in medicine admissions. The notification was issued on 23rd September 2012. It is scheduled to be conducted from 23rd November, 2012 to 6th December, 2012. Every day there will be two online exams.
As AP government filed a case in High Court, it was not sure whether the students should appear for NEET PG or not. Nearly 15,000 students who passed MBBS applied online for NEET PG. There are only two exam centres in Andhra Pradesh which are Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam. Those who could not reserve a slot in these two exam centres chose other states such as Maharashtra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. There are few students who choose far away states to appear for the exam.
As the Principal Secretary Kishore announced that NEET PG is conducted a scheduled and medical students of Andhra Pradesh need to appear fro the exam fro seeking admission into postgraduate medical courses.

NEET – PG Online Registration begins on a Chaotic Note
The first day of the application process for NEET – PG entrance examination for admissions to post – graduate medical seats, started on a chaotic note. Not only did the online registration for the examination was glitch – ridden, candidates also complained that the bank they were meant to pay up the examination fee was ill – equipped to handle the huge rush.
The procedure to register for NEET requires candidates to first pay up the examination fee at an Axis bank branch ( three branches in the city have been notified) and then register for the examination online, using the voucher given to them by the bank.
However, candidates said they had faced problems on both counts. While many students had a problem at the bank as they were unable to get vouchers, most complained of problems during online registration. About 80,000 to 1 lakh candidates are expected to write the newly – introduced PG entrance examination from across the country. An estimated 15,000 candidates will be writing the examination from the state.
The website for registration was inaccessible for most candidates in the city as the server was down due to overload. NEET – PG exam registration is being held from 4th October, 2012 to 12th November, 2012. The examination dates are from 23rd November, 2012 to 6th December, 2012.
Candidates who managed to register themselves for the computer – based examination said that they could not opt for test centres within the state or in neighbouring states. While there are three test centres in the state including two in Hyderabad and one in Vizag, the only available options for several test takers from the state were Guwahati, Patna and Raipur.
Worried candidates stated that NEET – PG, which comes under the purview of National Board of Examination, is the only entrance examination for higher studies in medical education that would guarantee an MD. “The Centre has done away with all the state – level medical PG examinations and hence, NEET is the only chance to get an MD. As there is too much at stake, all candidates are worried about the technical glitches on the first day of registration as they fear that such glitches could surface even on the examination day,” said a candidate on the condition of anonymity.
Testing company Prometric is responsible for the online registration of candidates and also for the conduct of NEET – PG examination. Prometric also conducts computer – based Common Admission Test ( CAT ) for admissions into B schools. Candidates said that Prometric has been rather vague about various aspects of the examination including scoring. “There is no clarity on the syllabus for NEET. Besides, in spite of repeated queries from candidates, Prometric has not revealed the process of scoring though they have vaguely referred to an ‘equating and scaling’ process of evaluation,” said a candidate.
The national board of examination had announced that NEET – PG will be held in January, 2013, however, the examination was advanced to November, candidates rued. “We were given hardly any time to prepare for the examination. It’s the moral responsibility of the central government to make sure that no errors creep into the conduct of NEET – PG,” said a candidate.
