All India Pre-Medical/Pre-Dental Test ( AIPMT ) to be held in 1st week of May 2016 will have similar pattern of examination as last year. There will be no change in pattern of exam for 2016, this means no Preliminary & Mains type of examination. News of AIPMT (Read Here) in two stage ( Preliminary & Mains ) came into light after Official meeting of CBSE & MCI representatives.
In this meeting, proposal for AIPMT in two stage was put forward to curb incidence of cheating or leak. Other members said two stage pattern would further complicate the process & in case if there is misconduct in it then conducting re-exam in two stage will not be possible. There is also less time to implement two stage pattern from 2016 as it requires approval from different government authorities.
NO NEET in 2016
Also there will be No NEET in 2016 (As we published earlier), MCI & Govt. is showing much interest in conducting Common entrance test for Medical Courses. Major obstacle in conducting Common entrance test is the law, MCI is the Govt. body which looks after Medical education in India. By law Private Medical College & State Medical College have there right to admit students according to their merit list. Not all Private Medical Colleges or State are interested in joining Common entrance test due to their vested interests.
National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET-UG) for Undergraduate Courses was previously conducted in 2013 but it was not successful, due to opposition from Private Medical Colleges & few States. Case was heard in Supreme Court by three different bench of judges. Two disagreed with it due to law & one bench favoured NEET. The apex court ruled that the Medical Council of India cannot conduct a unified examination. Final order on 18th July 2013, stated NEET-UG will be not voluntary, only those who are interested can participate.
Advantages of Common Entrance Test:
– Free from trouble of applying for so many entrance exams & cost saving.
– Relief for parents & students as they have to arrange so many things for exams apart from study like examination center, travelling, hotels.
– Single Syllabus for examination.
– No conflict of dates of different Entrance test.
– Less chance of unfair distribution of MBBS seats in Private Medical Colleges.
Obstacles In Conducting NEET:
– Law: currently law doesn’t permit MCI to hold NEET.
– Language of Question paper: as some states have paper in their regional laguage.
– Syllabus: CBSE & States Syllabus differs.
– Interest of Private Medical Colleges.
