President Pranab Mukherjee has sought clarity on NEET ordinance and its legal aspects before signing the special order cleared by union cabinet on May 20, 2016. Health Minister J P Nadda is likely to meet the president today to clarify Centre’s approach on deferring NEET by a year.

According to media reports, the President had sought legal advice on the matter and also asked the government to explain why the ordinance was brought in such a hurry.

Earlier, the union cabinet had cleared the special order which puts state-level medical entrance tests out of NEET ambit to overrule the Supreme Court order on implementing NEET from current academic year.  Supreme Court on May 9 had ruled that NEET will be the only medical entrance exam for admission to state government colleges and private and deemed medical institutes from the academic year 2016-17.

If the ordinance comes to effect, states will be allowed to continue with their entrance exam for this year.

The government had decided to bring the ordinance after many states and political parties raised concerns on different aspects of NEET implementation. During a consultation meeting with union health minister, majority of the states had cited reasons such as different syllabus and language as deterrents for states towards aligning with NEET.

 

The first phase of NEET was conducted on May 1. The second phase is scheduled to be conducted on July 24, 2016. Nearly 6.5 lakh candidates have appeared in phase 1 test.

is ncert book enough in chemistry for neet..... if not then which book should mostly i prefer???

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 17th Nov, 2019
Chemistry is divided into Inorganic, Physical and Organic chemistry. For inorganic chemistry, you must refer to the NCERT. Organic comprises of many reactions and reagents which can be practised by writing over and over again. Physical chemistry requires a comparatively deeper understanding of concepts, so preparing with the NCERT and referring to study material a level higher than NCERT should be the way to go.

any notification received for councelling registration against NEET 2020 from any medical college from Kerala or any other state in India ?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 17th Nov, 2019

First NTA will release an official schedule and then release the online application forms. After the completion of the exam and once the results have been declared, the respective States will release the State merit list and the counselling dates. Private Colleges will release their Cut offs so interested candidates can apply. Now at this juncture, it is too early for any State or College to release its registration process. Usually Colleges like CMC start the registration process from January/ February.

I failed in 12th board but next year I got 60 %... but my marksheet status show me as EX-Candidate. is Im eligible for neet 2020

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 17th Nov, 2019

Reza, based on your Category, you should secure a minimum aggregate of 50% in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. It is 50% for General Category, 45% for PWD and 40% for OBC,SC,ST. So, if you have secured this  aggregate, you are eligible for NEET though you cleared in in supplementary exams.

sir mere pcb me 45% haii aur overall sare sub. mila kr 55% haii....i m belongs to general category....kya may neet 2020 ka form bhar skti hu??

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 17th Nov, 2019

Mishu, for being eligible for NEET, your aggregate in Physics, Chemistry and Biology are considered and not your 12th aggregate. Though secured 55% in your 12th, because the aggregate in Physics, Chemistry and Biology is 45% and also because you belong to General Category, you are not eligible for appearing for NEET. 50% is the required aggregate for General Category students in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. You have to appear for improvement exams and improve your aggregate if you want to appear for NEET.

If you want to take admission in any medical college in Delhi and if you are a General category student, then you have to score approx 620+ marks to get safe seat.

Hope this will help you.
