250 extra classes needed to cover Neet syllabus
The National-EligibilityCum-Entrance Test for admission to MBBS and BDS courses will be a tough nut to crack for Andhra Pradesh students with junior colleges having to conduct more than 250 hours of additional classes just to be at par with Neet.

The expert committee appointed by the Board of Intermediate Education to study the implications of Neet on AP students has found that there are several topics in Neet that are not covered in the Inter syllabus.

The committee has come to a conclusion that the Inter syllabus for science subjects is no match for Neet, which is based on the NCERT syllabus. The outcome of this is that junior colleges will have to conduct over 250 additional classes from now to cover the Neet contents.

The committee found that there was a deficiency of 14 per cent in the physics syllabus, 35 per cent in botany, 36 per cent in zoology and 18 per cent in chemistry, when Inter was compared to Neet.

The Inter board has decided to conduct training programmes for lecturers in junior colleges from this month-end to apprise them of the variation in syllabus and the topics they need to cover to prepare students for Neet.

It has already sent circulars to principals to send their science teachers for orientation programmes.
