There are a lot of rumours flying around on the internet regarding the NEET exam. Some websites are reporting that AIPMT 2016 will be cancelled and be replaced by NEET. Certain websites are intentionally spreading lies and rumours to confuse students.

Read on to find what the truth is.

EDIT - 

The AIPMT exam might not happen on May 1st as had been scheduled before. Dr. Jayshree Mehta, president of MCI told HT that the NEET exam could replace AIPMT this year.

“It could be possible to hold NEET this year if the time schedule fixed by the Supreme Court is extended. We have forwarded the proposal to the government, let the government take a call,” Dr Jayshree Mehta, president MCI, told HT.


 

Supreme Court gave an affirmation to National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET). SC decided to recall its decision of scrapping NEET in 2013, here on 11th April 2015. "Till the matter is decided, NEET can be implemented," the SC gave an affirmation in the favour of NEET.

About NEET

National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) is an entrance examination to the medical courses like MBBS, BDS and PG courses. It was conducted in 2013 for the first time and however it was ruled out by the SC’s verdict.

What is MCI opinion on recalling NEET?

Conducting NEET exam this year is not favoured by Medical Council of India (MCI) due to time constraints and problems of preparing in this short span by the students. Dr C V Bhirmanandham, vice chairman, MCI said in disapproval that the council will have to issue fresh notifications for conduct of the NEET test for all states. He also mentioned that even if the notification is released within a week, aspirants will not have sufficient time for preparation. Moreover lack of uniformity in education across India will make it unfair to ask candidates to sit for a common test based on the CBSE syllabus without giving them sufficient time to prepare.

Who’s opposing NEET?

Due to lack of coaching opportunities Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh gave admissions based on the class 12 marks. Moreover 69 per cent of the seats are reserved after giving 15 per cent all India quota. MCI finds it impractical to come to common grounds with the state and issue NEET notification from fresh end before May exams.

Maharashtra state has requested for the continuation with MH-CET this year instead of NEET. However, Maharashtra ensures to join NEET from the next year.

There are nearly 400 Medical Colleges including Government and Private out of which approximately 80 colleges conduct their own entrance examinations.

What to expect this year?

With this short span of time it appears very difficult that the MCI will conduct NEET examination in 2016. However with the affirmation in favour of NEET, it will be conducted from the next academic session in 2017.
