After president of India, Pranab Mukherjee, signed the ordinance on NEET, CBSE to start the online registration for NEET Phase II test to be held on July 24, 2016.
National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) is in the news for a considerable time now. In the following development, CBSE will start the process of online application for the NEET Phase II test to provide admissions into MBBS and BDS. The test is scheduled to take place on July 242016, as per the information available for now.
NEET came into the news on April 28 this year when the apex court gave a decision putting NEET as the only test to get admission into MBBS and BDS courses throughout India. The court gave the orders to consider AIPMT 2016 held on May 1, 2016 as NEET Phase I. On May 9 2016, the Supreme Court (SC) of India refused to amend its directive on April 28 and upheld NEET as the only test to fill up MBBS and BDS seats in the colleges throughout India.
After the concerns put forth by the state governments, Union Cabinet cleared an ordinance on 20th May 2014 that honourable president of India, Pranab Mukherjee, signed after meeting with the union health minister, JP Nadda. As the president signed the ordinance, the implementation of NEET as the only test for selecting candidates for MBBS and BDS courses in India is deferred by one year.
As the CBSE starts the online registration for NEET Phase II, the test will be applicable to provide admission to government quota seats in states where government opts for NEET, all India quota seats and Management/Private/NRI quota seats in all private Medical/Dental Colleges or in any deemed/private university for that matter.
As per the orders of SC, those who somehow could not appear for the NEET Phase I (AIPMT 2016) or those who are apprehensive about scoring low in the test owing to their own reasons, need to submit an undertaking to give up their candidate in NEET Phase I to apply for NEET Phase II. Candidates can reach out to the official website of AIPMT to find out the detailed information about eligibility criteria, syllabus and test.
After the honourable president of India signed the ordinance on NEET, state governments have been given two options: either conduct their own exams or be the part of NEET to fill 85 percent of their seats in MBBS and BDS courses.
