Though the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) will be held across India exclusively for admission to medical colleges, the students from the state of Gujarat will find it to be another added burden to the string of exams they will have to take for admission to professional courses in the state.
This is because if the students want admission in dental and paramedical courses in Gujarat, they will need to have scores of the local entrance exam GujCET as well. This effectively means that even if Gujarat adopts NEET from May 2013 and not this year, the students in the future will have to appear for six different exams just to get their HSC (science) scores and the scores of the qualifying entrance tests as well to compete for admissions in professional courses. "On one hand, the education department says that they want to decrease the burden on students but if you consider the semester system introduced in class XI and XII science from this year, the students will give four board exams and two entrance exams namely NEET and GujCET for admission in professional courses in the B group. If the students have also taken A group, the number if entrance tests will be much higher", said Riddhi Patel, parent of a class XI science student. Earlier, officials in the education department said that in the meeting held to discuss NEET held in January this year in Hyderabad, it was discussed that dental and paramedical courses should also be covered by this test. But it was held that NEET will be exclusively for medical admissions.
