MBBS admissions: Plea to HC for weightage for Plus 2 marks

Chennai: The Madras High Court sought the Medical Council of India’s stand on a plea for factoring in both the NEET and the higher secondary examination marks of students for admitting them to the MBBS course in the state.

A vacation bench of justices N Kirubakaran and V Parthiban sought the stands of MCI and other respondents, issuing them notices for tomorrow, when the matter will again come up for the hearing.

The plea to take into account the marks of both the ‘plus 2’ and the National Eligibility-cum Entrance Test for the admission to the under-graduate medical courses in the state was made to the court by Dr P Ramachandran of Kattumannarkoil in Cuddalore district.

Petitioner Ramachandran said the clause V of the MCI’s notification dated December 21, 2010 had said all admissions shall be made solely on the basis of the marks secured in the NEET.

The petitioner prayed for a direction to the MCI to modify this in the interest of the students coming from backward states like Tamil Nadu.

  1. The reservation of govt quota, state quota, csi,st quota all will affect Medical PG course quality and then why the NEET is conducting – in fact give every one PG seats who can afford to study. It seems to be total confusion about the quota, fees and each state all different rules. It is pne India and all one in states medical education l college with one fees for all. instead Govt /Medical college/Deemed universities or minority college/ universities should make one rule and one fees. Up to undergraduate it is okay for for quotas and fees discounts etc. it up to the govt/MCI/Medical college to fix the fees, but not like fish markets, For quality Education for PG degree these all to be avoided and.NEET to be implemented or 100 % undergraduate of Medicine to be admitted in Medical college for PG DEGREE. NO incentive for Govt Doctors or others apart from NRI Parents direct sons/or daughters instead they migrate to USA or Europe or Australia for studies

  2. Definitely there must be change in NEET for sure bcoz this has been become the only entrance through which candidates could get admission in neet and if by chance a student get sth wrong during his neet examination and his paper get ruined by some reason then the students

    Admission in MBBS course should be based strictly on NEET score.However NEET should include 25%GK questions.
