Not so 'NEET' after all
 
Owing to the short window between Boards and NEET 2017, students find themselves perplexed amidst the preparation of National Eligibility cum entrance test and their board exams.

Since May 2016, when Supreme Court of India took the monumental decision to make NEET a single unified medical entrance exam across the nation, CBSE and MCI has been unable to clear doubts and queries of NEET aspirants and their parents.

The board examinations got over on Friday giving students ample time to prepare for NEET. Vaibhav Shahi, a student of Central Academy, Lucknow finds it hard to even take a dayoff after a month of rigorous preparation. Apart from the dwarfed window, the syllabus of NEET is entirely based on curriculum designed by CBSE making it a harder for students from various state boards to even qualify.

Mahesh Mangnani, a student of Maharashtra State Board along with several other students from State board schools across the city will be kick starting their preparation afresh for NEET 2017 scheduled on May 7.

“It is a great decision to make NEET a unified exam, but it has increased the amount of stress over students. Earlier students prepared for their Boards and had a shot at state level medical exams apart from AIPMT. Now with NEET being centralized, that option is gone.” said Prerna Singh Chahal, mother of a NEET aspirant.

Shivani Tiwari, a Class XII student in Tamil Nadu, shares Chahal’s views. She believes her NEET Scores will be affected as she does not get enough time to prepare for the exam. “Given all the confusion surrounding the conduct of the NEET in the state, we hardly have any time to concentrate on preparation for the entrance.” she said.

Many capable students like her are seeking out coaching and training from institutes and centers offering intensive courses and camps to prepare for the exam.

Archana Ram, Managing Director of SMART training resources, said they had seen an overwhelming response among students for the intensive programme that their centers are offering through April.

“State Board students are provided same course material and curriculum as CBSE students but additionally, we prepare them by giving few introductory classes to reorient them with few concepts.” She explained.

NEET 2017 is scheduled on May 07. As per reports released by CBSE, a total of more than 2,300,000 students have applied for NEET 2017. Though the cutoff of NEET 2016 dipped from previous years’,experts believe that it will boom back right up.

So far, all the states have willingly or unwillingly accepted NEET to fill up their MBBS Seats. However, the confusion remains in the state of Tamil Nadu as it is still unclear which exam will be considered for admission in the state medical colleges.
