NEET Application: Open School and Private Candidates not allowed to appear for NEET 2018

By: R Chandrakala on February 12, 2018

Central Board of Secondary Education has released the NEET 2018 Notification as of today. National Eligibility cum Entrance Test which determines the eligibility of candidates to get admitted to MBBS and BDS courses would be held on May 6, 2018. In contrast to reports which have suggested that Medical Council of India is working on its decision in order to not allow open school students in the examination, the NEET notification currently passed has made it clear that candidates who have passed 10+2 from open schools or private candidates would not be allowed to appear for the national level medical entrance examination.

It was reported early on, that a decision in favor of the open school students would be passed for NEET. HRD Ministry had communicated to the Health Ministry that the MCI Order has been issued against the policy of the government to give out equal learning opportunities for students. 

Candidates who have passed 10+2 from open schools or as private candidates shall not be eligible to appear for National Eligibility cum Entrance Test-UG as per the notification. Further to this, the study of Biology/Biotechnology as an additional subject at 10+2 level would also not be permissible. 

A regular student would be required to pass subjects of Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Biotechnology on an individual basis, and should have obtained a minimum of 50% taken overall in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Biotechnology in the qualifying examination. 

As per the reports, more than 2 Lakh students appear for National Institute of Open Learning (NIOS) Grade 12 Examination. Apart from this, Open School Bodies in various states conduct examinations for Grade 12 students. 

NEET 2018 Application Procedure is all set to begin from today and would be going on until March 9, 2018. 

Students willing to study MBBS in foreign universities may be required to clear NEET Examination, as the government is planning to make the test mandatory for them, to ensure only competent students make the cut. Currently, students wishing to study medicine in any government or private medical college would be required to clear National Eligibility Entrance Test which has come into existence from 2016 onwards. 

This proposal seems to be at an advanced stage of discussion. As per the official, among those who go abroad to study medicine, about 12-15% of the candidates manage to clear Foreign Medical Graduates Examination(FMGE), a licensure examination that is conducted by the Medical Council of India. 

Every year, it has been noticed that about 7000 students go outside India to study medicine. Most of the students go to countries like China and Russia.
