Uncertainty over NEET
Uncertainty continues over National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) for MBBS and BDS courses admissions in Private medical colleges as they have advertised to conduct their own entrance exams.

All the things will depend on the Supreme Court verdict on NEET, whether the colleges will provide admission to the students through NEET or their own entrance exams.

Already some private universities and Institutions announced the notification for admissions in MBBS and BDS courses in their institutions.

Kalinga Institute of Medical Science (KIMS) and Kalinga Institute of Dental Sciences (KIDS) both are scheduled to hold entrance exam for MBBS and BDS courses in different slots between April 25 and April 29.

Similarly, SOA University's Institute of Medical Science (IMS) and Institute of Dental Sciences (IDS) will hold the separate entrance exam on May 18.

The institutes, however, are awaiting the April 02 date when the SC is likely to hear petitions by private medical colleges and the states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and UT of Puducherry, seeking exemption from NEET.

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), New Delhi to conduct the NEET UG 2013 on May 05, 2013.

Earlier, Medical Council of India (MCI) has announced that NEET, to be held for the first time this year, is mandatory for admissions to undergraduate and postgraduate medical courses in all government and private medical colleges that come under the ambit of the Indian Medical Council (IMC) Act, 1956.

However, hearing the pleas of opposing states and private medical colleges, the SC on December 13, 2012, permitted then to conduct their respective examinations for MBBS and BDS and postgraduate courses, but retrained them from published the results of the entrance exams. The fate of the such entrance exam will depend on the final SC verdict.

"As the court has given permission to conduct the test, we are planning ahead the entrance test procedure. However, we will abide by the court verdict," said Sasmita Samant, registrar of KIIT.
