Presenting the Union Budget 2018-19, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley announced that the Government intends to open 24 new medical colleges and hospitals over the course of the coming year, primarily by upgrading the existing hospitals in each district. Speaking before the Lok Sabha on February 1, 2018, Jaitley said the objective behind this is to improve the “accessibility of quality of quality medical education and healthcare” throughout the country. According to Jaitley, the move would ensure that there would be one medical college for every three parliamentary constituencies, automatically translating to one medical college in every state.Related Post -NEET 2019NEET Eligibility Criteria 2019NEET Application Form 2019NEET Admit Card 2019

“In order to further enhance accessibility of quality medical education and healthcare, we will be setting up 24 new Government Medical Colleges and Hospitals by upgrading existing district hospitals in the country. This would ensure that there is atleast 1 Medical College for every 3 Parliamentary Constituencies and atleast 1 Government Medical College in each State of the country,” the Minister was quoted saying in part 62 of his Budget Speech, under Section II. ‘Investment, Expenditure and Policy Initiatives’, the sub-section being ‘Health, Education and Social Protection’.

While the Union Government’s focus on expanding medical education this year may seem low-key when compared to the 2017-18 budget where it had announced a slew of new measures, the announcement is still likely to be welcomed by a majority of medical aspirants, especially those from states without medical colleges of their own.
Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland and Mizoram are currently the states which do not have any medical colleges of their own, while Sikkim lacks a Government medical college. That said, Government medical colleges in the above mentioned states have been under construction for the last two years or more through previously announced plans of the same Government. Therefore, it is unclear whether Jaitley was counting these under-construction colleges in his list of 24 or proposing the construction of new ones altogether. Also, it wasn’t clarified whether the intention of opening a new medical college in every state extends to Union Territories as well. Lakshadweep and Daman & Diu are yet to have their own medical colleges, while one is currently being set up in Dadra & Nagar Haveli.
Last year, the Budget had focussed more on expanding the scope of postgraduate medical education in the country. Jaitley had announced then that 5000 new seats would be added at PG level to ensure the existing shortage of doctors in the country was overcome. In December 2017, the Union Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare Ashwini Kumar Choubey confirmed that over 5800 PG seats had been added over the course of the year. This year, the Budget plan to open new colleges at undergraduate level is in line with the Government’s stated objective of increasing the doctor-population ratio from the existing 0.63:1000 to the prescribed WHO norm of 1:1000.
The proposed increase in the number of colleges and focus on improving the healthcare sector will be a welcome move considering the disparity in the number of students who aspire to get admission in medical colleges and the number of seats currently available in the country. As per the existing CBSE data, more than 11 lakh candidates appear annually in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) which determines admissions to 90,000 undergraduate medical and dental seats across the country. Meeting the needs of medical aspirants will go a long way towards ensuring this gap between healthcare demand and supply is bridged.

Know the Neet syllabus & what’s important
Study all the chapters taught in class 11 and 12 thoroughly. 70 to 80 percent of the overall questions are either directly taken from NCERT or are an advanced form of its learnings. Before you take on the study effort, go through the previous years' papers, so much so that, you can identify the important topics and concepts. Study those thoroughly, and prioritize these topics before you move to the less important ones.
Make a study strategy
Ensure you make a good timetable that includes solving test papers, regular revisions, and small breaks to help you recuperate and start afresh. Strictly abide by it and allocate more time to difficult subjects. Make it a habit to cover difficult topics along with interesting ones so that preparation does not become monotonous. Keep a track of time as you do not want one chapter to consume time and affect your overall study plan.
Solve test papers
As soon as you complete your syllabus, start solving as many test papers as you can. As the final date approaches, solve 3-4 test papers/mocks tests a day. Try to complete the test papers within the designated time. Demarcate the questions where you made a mistake and identify its cause. Revise all the incorrectly attempted questions well. In this manner, you will be able to understand your weaknesses better and prepare strategically, which is very important for a competitive exam like NEET.
Along with your mock test papers take some time out to revise lessons. This should begin after you have completed studying all the lessons. If you are facing difficulty in grasping a certain topic, formula, diagram, etc, prepare a learning aid (like flashcards) and fix it in front of your study table. Do not be overconfident about your preparation and pay attention to the technique applied to crack the question while you’re revising.
Develop your own study technique
Every student will have a different strategy to crack the exam. While preparing for a competitive exam like NEET, follow a study technique that helps you recall your lessons well and allows you to solve the paper in the stipulated time. Follow the one that suits you best and adhere to the pattern till the day of examination. Do not panic and alter your strategy a few days before the exam - this is likely to hamper your preparation and affect your confidence before the examination.
