NEET PG 2013 ends Today, Candidates Unhappy

NEET PG 2013 Comes to an end Today
The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET 2013) for Postgraduate courses for admission to postgraduate medical, dental courses across the country comes to an end today.

The National Board of Examinations (NBE), New Delhi conducted the NEET PG 2013 medical entrance exam in 51 centres in 33 cities across the country. NEET PG 2013 will be conducted over 11 days from Nov 23 to Dec 06, 2012. Over 95,000 candidates registered for the computer based admission test for the PG Medical courses. The single entrance exam will be administered as a computer based Test.

The response from the NEET PG 20132 aspirants not that much positive. Students are unhappy with the quality of question paper. It is the first computer based entrance test as far as common medical entrance tests in the country are concerned.

Swaroop, who has completed his MBBS from Mysore Medical College, was not very happy with the quality of the questions. He believed that they were more factual than contextual. "Of course 240 questions, 220 were such that one had to depend entirely on one's power;s to learn by heart to answer them," he said.

The new test does not have negative marking system unlike the CET. Swaroop believed that this increased the chance of luck playing a bigger role in passing the exam than skill and ability.

The format and subjects of the new test had caused anxiety among some students. They felt that there is no separate study material or books for the Entrance exam.

Ashwini from Government Medical College, Mumbai said that the test was scheduled in haphazard manner. "The examinations were held at short notice. We got only two months for preparation,"

Not all are, however, sceptical about the new test. "The questions were short and precise and were of better standard," said Parvati from Kerala.
