The students took this decision to move to the court when the University authorities very clearly stated that the University has now left with no other choice other than conducting its own entrance exam. The officials from the University has been bound to take this decision due to the delay in Supreme court verdict on NEET.
As per the protesting students, it is impossible to prepare for such a tough exam within such a short period of time. They had prepared for nine months to appear in NEET and now the declaration of a second test is almost impossible for the students to agree with.
Previously, when NEET was conducted in the month of November and December 2012 around 1000 students among one lakh students for medical colleges affiliated to Gujarat University had appeared for NEET.
As per the authorities of GU, the court is still pending with the verdict, which was about to take place by the end of January, 2013.
The higher authority of the Gujarat University said that "the decision was made in favor of the students. June 30 is the last date for admission in PG courses in all medical colleges and if the Supreme Court's verdict is not out at least two months before the last date, then it will be difficult to complete the PG admissions within time, which may lead to a zero academic session in 2013 -14 for PG classes in Gujarat University."
"This will risk the careers of all medical and dental students as well as for the government hospitals associated with the medical colleges who will not get their resident doctors. As a result, to avoid all the aforementioned risks, university has decided to conduct their entrance exams, as the apex court has not objected to conducting exams but only asked not to declare Results", he added.
"The university will wait for the verdict of the court. If the court approves NEET then they will cancel their entrance exams and if the court delays then they will request the court for the continuation of their admission process so that the students do not suffer."
However, NEET verdict has been postponed continuously from nearly to two months. Finally, it is to be heard in the first week of April. Its not just few students or universities who are waiting for the verdict results. But, Medical and Dental colleges and aspirants across India are seriously waiting for the verdict of NEET.
