Centre asks SC to allow states to hold separate medical entrance test

NEW DELHI: The Centre today moved the Supreme Court seeking modification of yesterday’s order to allow state governments and private colleges to hold separate entrance examinations for MBBS and BDS courses for the academic year 2016-17.
The plea in this regard was mentioned by Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi before a bench of Justices AR Dave and AK Goel.
The AG suggested that the order passed by the apex court yesterday had allowed holding of a two-phased single common entrance test for MBBS, BDS and PG courses through National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) on May 1 and July 24 but there appear to be some genuine difficulties and there is a need for some change in the order.
He suggested that the first phase of NEET scheduled for May 1 be scrapped and all the students be allowed to take the exams on July 24.
