No more CET in Karnataka for medical seats: Will be replaced by a national level entrance exam called NEET

NO MORE CET FOR MEDICAL SEATS FROM 2013 | NEET – National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test

All good things come to an end but the question is will it be replaced by a better one! The simple, well understood and Karnataka state friendly CET examinations will be replaced by NEET from 2014. The Medical Council of India confirmed that the NEET test to be conducted by CBSE will be held in May 14 2014.

NEET is National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test which is all set to start from 2013 for all the UG courses ( in the sense we believe Dental and Medical, not sure of Engineering ). This exam will be conducted by CBSE and will allow the students to participate in the national level and students can choose seats from 271 medical colleges including private colleges ( approximately 30,000 seats ) from all over India.


Reason for the change :
The main reason for the change would be to ensure that all the seats are filled in all colleges which were left vacant when there were state entrance exams.

Will it be helpful for students?

  • Well, that depends as every process will have pros and cons. This will lead to change of syllabus and make one single syllabus for every student attempting NEET. Hence reducing the burden of studying different syllabus for different exams.
  • This will allow students to apply for colleges in other states without writing multiple exams. There will be more seats in this process.

May be a problem for students too?

  • The entrance exams of state would ensure that students from that state would get more preference as majority of exam takers would be from the state. But now, students will have to compete with more number of students and traveling to other state may become compulsory.
  • The whole system will change. The syllabus and even the criteria to attend NEET will be different.
  • Management seats are not included in this exam, so there will be problems regarding quota during admissions.
  • Students had more chances of getting into their desired colleges but now the equation will change.
  • Students who wanted to join Under-graduate courses at the AIIMS in New Delhi and Post-graduate Institute for Medical Education and Research in Chandigarh will have to attend another exam as these institutions do not follow NEET.

You can add some points to these and say what you feel about the change in process. Is it the right move?

  2. zabi says:

    it is not good move as the particular state students wiil not get seats.
    and what about NRI students

  3. harshith says:

    more reservation in a college must be given to perticular state students

  4. Manjunath says:

    It is better to provide more seat reserved for Karnataka students .
    and fee structure will be as early as in Karnataka will be good.
    and some benefits to be given for poor people.

  5. Beeresh says:

  22. Muneer says:

    It’s a good initiative for north students bcz in the north side there are good coaching centres for such exams whereas in Karnataka only few are there so chances of getting medical seats for the northies are very high..and upon that there will be reservations so my friends Karnataka students have a bit disadvantage but if u take it positively then my friends it’s a good initiative where u can have a lot of opportunities not only in Karnataka but in the whole country…so prepare well n score well only deserved will be benefited..
