For many years now, in Tamil Nadu there have not been separate entrance exams. It is all based on their 12th marks and this is to ensure that urban and rural students are all assessed on a single window platform, and also help rural students who can't afford expensive private coaching for entrance exams.
With the announcement by the Supreme Court to make NEET compulsory from this year many students started protests demanding the cancellation of the examination for one more year.
There are many students who after the SC decision started to focus on NEET exams and have done well too. Now the Centre's decision to support the State to pass a special ordinance for one year exemption from NEET has not gone down well.
Those who have been relying on NEET have said that they want this format of selection to start. In fact while medical counselling has begun in many states, aspirants in Tamil Nadu are still waiting for a conclusion in the NEET decision itself and they are ready to go on a long legal battle too if need be.
The National eligibility cum entrance test (NEET) is the entrance for medical aspirants to acquire a seat in government and medical college. It is promises to ensure a single entrance format for the medical students across different syllabuses in the country.
