Tamil Nadu Opts Out Of NEET With A New Bill

The suicide of a medical aspirant fearing the result of the medical entrance test pushed the state govt to proposed a bill that allow medical admissions on the basis of marks obtained by students in Class 12. . Chief Minister M K Stalin introduced the Bill and parties AIADMK, PMK and  Congress, supported the bill. Only BJP opposed the bill.

 

This adopted bill will discard National Entrance-cum-Eligibility Test (NEET) and will make way for admission to medical courses based on Class XII marks. Bill seeks to provide admission to UG courses in medicine, dentistry, Indian medicine and homoeopathy on the basis of marks obtained in the qualifying examination i.e Class XII.

If the Bill gets the Presidential approval, students in the state will get entry to medical colleges on basis of their marks in Class 12 exams. But this will take effect only from the next year. For the current year, admissions will take place on the basis of NEET score only.
