ABVP Against NEET, It Will Affect Rural Students

NEET Will Affect Rural Students
The Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) member of Udupi staged against the NEET (National Eligibility Entrance Test) in front of the clock tower on Nov 07, 2012. Students have demanded to cancel the system of the NEET 2013 against the National Medical Entrance Test which is replacing the state level examinations. They demanded justice and cancellation of NEET.


"The NEET is conducted by the Central Board of Examination (CBSE) according to its syllabus for class 12, while the state pre-university science students in the final year now, are being taught as per the state syllabus. It is difficult task for a students", said Ramesh K, state President ABVP.

A memo of the same has been forwarded to the SP.

Mangalore MLA, U T Khader said that the implementation of NEET UG instead of State's Common Entrance Test (CET) will affect the rural students ans those studying under the state syllabus.

Addressing the press meet, Mr Khader expressed concern that due to this system, students from poor background in state would be unable to compete with urban students in the country who had studied CBSE syllabus in schools.

He said, "The poor students have to be educated in the CBSE syllabus to be capable as those studying under central system. The teachers also have to be trained as per the central syllabus. State government have to take proper steps to train them within the upcoming exam in this academic year or the implement itself has to be postponed to the next academic year."

The Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has been directed by supreme court to cinduct the NEET UG and be made mandatory from the academic year 2013-14. Initially the students were preparing themselves for a Common Entrance Test (CET) in their respective state, but now they have to switch to CNSE model of education.
