India Study Solution - EduNews

Students wanting to pursue MBBS or any other undergraduate medicine courses in foreign universities will have to clear the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) from this year, 2018.
The notification also bars students paying out of open schools from taking NEET. This means students passing from National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) will not be able to take the NEET 2018, to be conducted by the CBSE. Private students passing out from other boards are also not allowed to take the NEET.
"The ministry of health has decided that candidates who wish to pursue MBBS or BDS from foreign medical colleges and foreign medical colleges need to qualify the NEET," said the information bulletin issued by the CBSE.
The Medical Council of India (MCI) which regulates medical education said the provision of NEET qualification has been introduced to ensure that only meritorious students go for medical education to foreign countries. According to one MCI sources, "Indian students mostly go to former USER countries, China and the Philippines. When they come back, they appear in an exam to be able to practice. But less than 25% students qualify the exam to be able to medical practice. The NEET qualification will ensure quality to some extent."
An NIOS official said the students paying out of the institutions were allowed to take NEET till last year. The MCI sources said the NIOS students, who pursue education in the correspondence mode, did not have practical classes and so could not be allowed to appear for the NEET (National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test).
As per the CBSE notice to be eligible for NEET one needs to have studied physics, chemistry, biology or bio-technology in the past two years of their 12 - year schooling.

 Some More Information about NEET
v   The state governments of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana have decided to offer the 15% all India quotas in medical colleges run by them.

Now that the two states have decided to implement the reservation, medical aspirants from these two states can apply for MBBS admission in colleges in other states under the all India quota.
v   The CBSE will hold the NEET in English and other regional languages like - Hindi, Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi, Odia, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu.

"The NTA (National Testing Agency) will initially conduct those entrance examinations which are currently being conducted by the CBSE ... Other examinations, tests will be taken up gradually after the NTA is fully geared up ... The entrance examinations will be conducted in online mode at least twice a year, giving adequate opportunity to candidates to bring out their best," HRD Minister of State Upendra Kushwaha said in a written answer in the Lok Sabha.

At present all these entrance tests NEET, JEE Main, NET etc. are held once in a year. If the proposal is passed, then from 2019 National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) and Joint entrance Examination Main (JEE Main) will be conducted twice a year by NTA instead of Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). NTA will also locate the examination centers at sub-district and district levels.
