The common entrance examination will be introduced by India from 2013. This will put an end to the trend of having multiple entrance exams so as to get admissions to different colleges. There were separate exams for each states conducted to get admissions in the government colleges. Some private associations had separate exams to have seats in the management stream in earlier years. There are separate admission tests for big private universities.
The government has propses to have CET (Common Entrance TEST) for the students applying for the engineering and medical courses. There will be JTEE conducted for the students wishing to choose engineering course . An NEET test for the students aspiring to apply for the MBBS and MD?MS courses. Also there will be NEET-UG (Undergraduate) for BDS and MBBS courses and an NEET PG for the postgraduate Medical courses.
But there were many loopholes for NEET PG, which consisted of technical failure, exams centers at distant places from residing places, no change of location or refund once the person has registered for exam. This showed a defeat for the exam as it was loss of money and time for students.
The NEET –UG has its own challenge and Special states have put front their request with CoBSE. JEE is proposed for IIT, NIIT and other IT field institutes
Registration for NEET-PG ends on 12th November , 2012 and exams will be conducted between 23rd November to 6th December 2012 at 47 centres across 33 cities. JEE details available on website and NEET-UG will make debut in 2013.
