The phase 1 of National Eligibility Entrance Test was conducted on Sunday, May 1. About 6.5 lakh students appeared in the AIPMT (NEET phase 1) for admission to MBBS and BDS degree courses in the medical colleges across the country. The test was conducted at 1040 centres across the country.
CBSE had taken proper measures to check the cheating in NEET -1 exam as mobile jammers and metal detectors were deployed at the test centres. Candidates were also asked to wear slippers and half sleeved clothes. All kind of accessories such as rings, watches, caps and bracelets were also prohibited in the examination halls.
Female candidates were also asked to tie their hair and a special place was arranged for the frisking of students. The students were asked to report two and a half hours before the start time of test to carry the frisking process.
The Karnataka state government had advised the students to appear in both the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) on May 1 and Common Entrance Test to be conducted on May 4 and 5 for admission to MBBS and BDS in order to avoid risks.
The State will also file a petition in the Supreme Court to implement the NEET from the next academic year 2017-18 and not from this year. The Supreme Court will hear the petitions filed by the private medical colleges on May 3.
The Indian Medical Association said on Saturday, that the decision for conduction of National Eligibility Entrance Test by cancelling the EAMCET for admission to medical colleges in Andhra Pradesh is not fair for the students.
The syllabus of the NEET and EAMCET is not same and the students have to prepare separately for NEET if the EAMCET is cancelled. IMA will be moving the Supreme Court on behalf of the Andhra Pradesh state.
EAMCET is a state level examination and NEET is an All India level test comprising of CBSE syllabus. Moreover, the Andhra Pradesh students from Telugu medium will face hardship appearing in NEET.
