Health minister of Gujarat Jay Narayan Vyas has said that Gujarat will join National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET), a common medical entrance test mooted for admission in MBBS courses all over the country, from 2013 if the test is also offered in Gujarati language.
Mr. Vyas has written a letter to central health and family welfare minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, where he has said Gujarat will be able to join NEET only if the test is offered in Gujarati language as well. "Nearly 70 per cent of students in Gujarat study in Gujarati medium. It is important that the test is also offered in Gujarati language for these students. Moreover, it is important for doctors to be proficient in the local language to treat the population effectively", Vyas said. He added, also put another condition before the central health ministry. He said that Gujarat will also want that 85 per cent of the medical seats are reserved for students studying with the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) and the schools affiliated with Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in the state. "Students from other states tend to go back to their home states after studying in local colleges. If 85 per cent seats are reserved for local students, then Gujarat will join NEET", the minister said. It needs mention that the GSHSEB has improved its class XI and XII (science) syllabus and brought in on par with the syllabuses offered on the national level. However, parents of local students too were against the government joining NEET if the test is not offered in the local language. The gazette regarding the NEET has been made public in February where it mentions that NEET will be administered only in English and Hindi languages. Meanwhile, Vyas said “that students will have to appear for GUJCET for admission in physiotherapy, dental and other para-medical colleges”.
