MCI to conduct national level test for PG medical entrance

The Medical Council of India (MCI) will for the first time hold an All India level examination for admission in post-graduate medical courses across the country early next year. According to MCI, the syllabus for the National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET-PG) will be that of MBBS and further information carrying relevant details in this regard would soon be put on its website. "The Common Entrance Test (CET) for admission to Medical Post-graduate Courses across the country i.e. NEET-PG shall be held in Jan-Feb 2012 for admissions in the academic year 2012-2013," a notice issued by MCI said. "The Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) would be based on the MBBS syllabus as well as the knowledge that needs to be acquired during internship... The distribution of questions, model questions and method of tie breaking for ranking would be placed on the website in the due course," MCI said. The move assumes significance as MCI decision to hold a national level examination for admission in undergraduate and post-graduate courses was opposed by various stake holders. Whereas, several group of students had moved the Supreme Court supporting an All India level examination. After a brief legal battle, the apex court had in March this year held that the MCI will oversee the common entrance test each for undergraduate and postgraduate medical programmes following which the recent notification was issued. In general, an aspirant has to take over a dozen examinations for one medical seat despite facing problems like clash of dates and multiple fees. Various students' bodies have demanded single examination for PG medical entrance on the lines of All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE). Every year about 40,000 students are admitted to undergraduate programmes and some 19,000 for postgraduate courses, MCI officials said. As per official statistics, there are close to 300 private and government controlled medical colleges in the country.

Single Cet from 2011-12

The Supreme Court on Monday gave an important clarification that will enable Medical Council of India (MCI) to go ahead with its plan to hold a single common entrance test (CET) for MBBS and post-graduation seats in all government and private medical colleges from next year, that is the 2011-12 academic session.

The bench clarified that "pendency of petitions will not stand in the way of MCI notifying the new regulations (proposing single CET) and others from challenging the notification (subsequently)".

This clarification will allow MCI to notify its regulations envisaging single CET for MBBS and PG courses in all medical colleges from 2011.

Once MCI issues the notification, there will be a single entrance examination each for MBBS and MD courses offered by all 271 medical colleges, 138 run by governments and 133 under private management. These colleges offer over 31,000 seats for MBBS courses and another 11,000 seats for PG degrees.

Addressing the concern of state governments afraid of losing their quota in state medical colleges, MCI clarified that state quota would remain intact as `National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test' (NEET) would draw up a national merit list as well as state-wise ranking list for general category, SC, ST and OBC as well as physically challenged persons.

The MCI proposal had said, "In order to be eligible for admissions to MBBS courses for a particular academic year, it shall be necessary for a candidate to obtain minimum 50% marks in each paper of NEET held for the said academic year. However, in respect of candidates belonging to SC, ST and OBC, the minimum percentage of marks shall be 40% in each paper and for candidates with locomotory disability of lower limbs, it would be 45% in each paper."

Single entrance test for MBBS from 2011

There will be only one common entrance test each for over 30,000 MBBS seats and over 11,000 MD seats in all government and medical colleges in the country from 2011.

This important decision, taken by the Medical Council of India and accepted by the Union ministry of health, was conveyed to the Supreme Court, bringing huge relief to lakhs of aspiring doctors.

Earlier, students wanting to take up courses in medicine had to appear in at least five to six entrance tests for various colleges and worry about attendant problems like clash of exam dates as well as travel to distant places for counselling for allotment of seats.

But from 2011, there will be just one entrance test each for MBBS and MD courses offered by all 271 medical colleges, 138 government-run and 133 under private management. These colleges together offer over 31,000 seats for MBBS courses and another 11,000 for PG.
