Bengal has dropped the plan to hold a separate medical entrance examination after the center said the common national entrance exam's regional language papers next year would be the translation of English version.
The national entrance-cum-eligibility test (NEET) this year sparked allegations that the NEET Question paper in English was easier than some of the regional language ones, including Bengali.
However according to Bengal education minister, the state is exploring all possibilities to keep medical aspirants of Bengal out of the ambit of common test for another year. He said the main intention behind this is to give the center at least a year to see whether they can develop a mechanism so that the students particularly from rural areas studying mostly in state board don't face problems which had happened in Tamil Nadu in NEET 2017.
