Inter students breathe easy,
Hyderabad, Dec 01: The high court judgment staying National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) has given a breather to medical aspirants from the city. They will now write Eamcet for medical college admissions this academic year.
Many students are relieved to be spared from studying Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) syllabus which is prescribed by MCI for NEET. It's a bigger relief for Inter Telugu medium students as NEET is supposed to be only in English and Hindi medium.
Students said they would now be able to concentrate on their studies.
"During the past two months our college managements have encouraged us to buy CBSE textbooks so that we can familiarise ourselves with the new syllabus and brace up for new exam pattern. Even a rigorous study of the CBSE syllabus for the next three months would not have been enough to tackle the NEET. The HC directive has come as a relief," said Etula Lakshmi, a student of a private college.
Faculty members of colleges said that MCI should give an exemption for two years to AP. "Students who join intermediate in 2012 will have adequate time to be taught CBSE syllabus before they appear for NEET in 2014," said senior professor Narayana Junior College.
