NEET : SC adjourns govt hearing on Thursday


The Supreme Court on Tuesday adjourned hearing to Thursday on a plea filed by Goa government seeking admissions to medicine and dentistry degree courses through the Goa Common Entrance Test (GCET) in 2016-17.

The state government’s argument was heard on Tuesday by a special bench of Supreme Court, sources said.

As Goa wants to join the National Eligibility and Entrance Test in 2017-18 and not during the upcoming academic session. State officials said that Goa students were mentally prepared to answer the GCET and it is difficult for them to come to terms at the last minute with the fact that they have to answer the NEET.

On April 28, 2016, the Supreme Court ordered that the centralized admission exam National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET ) be mandatorily held for admissions to all medicine and dentistry degree seats across India.

The order directed that the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) held on May 1 be considered as the first phase of NEET and that the test to be held on July 24 be taken as the second phase.

Nearly 3,500 students from Goa, appearing for MBBS and BDS seats are affected by the recent SC judgement.
