The first country-wide examination for 42,000 seats will be conducted by CBSE

The first nation-wide common entrance tests for MBBS courses will be held in May 2012, whose syllabus has now been released by the Medical Council of India.

Prepared by the National Council of Education, Research and Training (NCERT), the draft syllabus providing details of study materials in physics, chemistry and biology has been uploaded on MCI website inviting comments. It will be up on the website for comments till August 11.

Following a Supreme Court directive, the MCI has decided to hold the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test for undergraduates (NEET-UG) for admission to MBBS in next May.

The NEET will be the only entry route in nearly 42,000 MBBS seats in private and government colleges, sources said, adding that the mammoth examination would be conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education.

The modalities for NEET-PG (MD/MS) for 20,600 seats are also being worked out. The post-graduate examination is scheduled in January-February 2012 for the academic year 2012-2013.

The NEET-SS for super-speciality courses (DM/MCh) admissions across the country, is scheduled for next June for 2012-2013 academic year. The pattern of the post graduate examination, distribution of questions across different MBBS subjects and model questions will be made available on the website in August 2011, said an MCI official.

As per the MCI proposal, the NEET would lead to an all India merit list as well as state-wise merit list of the eligible candidates. All candidates would be admitted only on the basis of the merit list.

The common merit list of different states can be easily taken out so that reservation policies followed by various states could be applied to state common entrance merit list, officials said, adding that no candidate who failed to obtain the minimum eligibility marks would be admitted in the MBBS course.
