Govt. Postpone NEET for next year as many state oppose
Even as the Supreme Court is yet to decide on holding a pan-India
single entrance test for admission to MBBS courses, government has decided to postpone
the test by another year after opposition from several states.
In view of this, CBSE has decided to carry on with its All India Pre-Medical/Pre-Dental
Entrance Examination (AIPMT) for filling only 15 per cent all-India quota seats
as per the existing pattern. CBSE will hold the AIPMT Preliminary Examination on
April 1, 2012, and final examination on May 13, 2012. CBSE had earlier announced
the conduct of the all India National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) for admission
to MBBS courses across the country on May 13, 2012 in keeping with the decision
of Union Health Ministry.
