Medical students to move court against GUís entrance test decision
The students decision comes after the university authorities on Thursday clearly told them that there was no other alternative than to conduct its own entrance test because of the delay in the Supreme Court verdict on petitions challenging National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) conducted by the Medical Council of India ( MCI).
NEET, which is a common entrance test for admissions to post-graduate degree and diploma courses in medical and dental institutes across the country, was conducted between November and December 2012. Over 1,000 students from medical colleges affiliated to GU were among over one lakh students reported to have appeared for the NEET.
Under NEET, 50 per cent PG seats are reserved for the students of the state where the colleges are located and the rest of the seats are under national quota. The new system was introduced to improve the standard of PG medical and dental education in the country.
However, some private college managements in Rajasthan, Maharashtra and some of the southern states challenged MCIís decision in the Supreme Court. The apex court ordered MCI not to declare NEET results till final decision.
According to GU authorities, the apex courtís verdict was expected by the end of January 2013. But, there is no judgment in the case
