Uttarakhand scraps UPMT; admissions only through NEET

Uttarakhand scraps UPMT; admissions only through NEET The Uttarakhand Department of Medical Education has scrapped the Uttarakhand Pre Medical Test (UPMT) and will be admitting students to state medical institutes through NEET from the academic year 2016-17, states a notification issued by HNB Uttarakhand Medical Education University, the conducting authority of UPMT.

In a media meet following the notice, Om Prakash, Principal Secretary, Department of Medical Education, Uttarakhand was quoted as saying to English daily, Tribune that the state will follow the Supreme Court’s order to facilitate admissions to MBBS and BDS courses through NEET from this current academic session.

Admissions Open Now
SRM Admissions 2018 open. START your application now.

 

He further added that the curricula followed by schools in Uttarakhand are based on the CBSE pattern and thus aspirants will not find NEET difficult to qualify.

 

UPMT 2016 was earlier scheduled to be conducted on May 15, 2016, but it was cancelled after the Supreme Court’s ruling on May 9, which demanded the implementation of NEET for MBBS and BDS programmes in state, private and deemed medical colleges from this academic year.

 

However, citing that the immediate implementation of NEET would be unfair to students from state boards in terms of preparation, the Centre issued an ordinance on NEET, allowing states to conduct their own entrance tests for this academic session.

 

Following Uttarakhand’s decision to scrap UPMT, admissions to 85 per cent state quota seats in medical and dental colleges of Uttarakhand will be filled through NEET scores only along with 15 per cent all India quota seats.

You have less chances to get seat in private colleges based on your marks for MBBS and BDS. If you are interested you can take admission in paramedical courses.

You have less chances to get seat under state and AIQ  but if you want you can try for private colleges as there is no such domicile required.

Hope this helps!!!
