Director Of AIMS Slams MCI And NEET Entrance Exams

AIMS Director Against MCI And NEET Exam
Ramesh Chandra Deka, the Director and Chief Executive Officer of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIMS) slammed MCI (Medical Council of India) for trying to conduct a single National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) for MBBS admissions at various government and private medical colleges across the country. He also claimed that NEET exam is incapable of yielding any desired results and will be unable to enhance the quality of medical education in India.

 

The AIMS Chief also clearly stated that the institution will not adopt the test since the whole idea of conducting a single national level common entrance exam for MBBS admissions in a transparent manner in a vast country like India was lofty. He also claimed that in India no one follows a uniform syllabus for higher secondary education. Various states follow their own curriculum and students at times opt for writing examinations in their vernacular languages. He also highlighted the fact that certain standards should have been set for the qualifying exam before introducing NEET exam.

Introduction of a Uniform Higher Secondary Curriculum should have been a requisite before conducting a single entrance exam on an All-India basis. Since uniformity of syllabus was not taken care of, AIIMS as well as 2 states that is, Karnataka and Gujarath have decided to opt out of NEET for ensuring justice to the rural children of India.

He also stated that Medical Entrance exams should be conducted by UGC (University Grants Commission) or by Medical Universities based in different states, since it will be an easier task for them to conduct the exams in a much more transparent and fool proof manner. Decentralization of exams was required in India rather than centralization.

The MCI duty was to ensure quality of medical education and proper infrastructure at various medical education institutes across the country and not conducting examinations. With a prime medical institution like AIIMS not adopting NEET exam, will other medical institutions in India still adopt the NEET exam expected to be held for the first time on May 13, 2012.
