NEET by Medical Council of India for MBBS from 2012
Students aspiring for MBBS admissions will not take the EAMCET route but write the National Entrance and Eligibility Test by Medical Council of India (MCI) from 2012.
The test will be conducted at the national level by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on behalf of MCI but the counselling and selection would be done by the State Government. Thus there be uniform standards of testing for admissions instead of each State having its own question papers. Nevertheless, there would be both State and national rankings.
Andhra Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir are the only States which were exempted from joining the Central pool by a Presidential order.
The State had to contribute 15% of the seats to outside-State Students but its own Students would have got an additional 1,500 seats at the national level if it had joined the scheme.
