The Kerala Government on December 20 decided not to conduct separate entrance exam for medical as well as its allied programmes from the 2017-18 academic year. The students would be instead admitted to medical, agricultural, AYUSH and veterinary sciences on the basis of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). The exam authority, Commissioner of Entrance Examination, Kerala is expected to release a notification on the same soon.
According to the media reports, the decision to accept NEET for even the allied programmes was taken at the Cabinet meeting by the Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan.
