Ahmedabad: The Medical Council of India (MCI) has decided to make changes in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), a common test for admission in medical colleges all over India.
Officials said that the new syllabus will be declared by the second week of November. In April this year, a meeting of the core committee of NEET including MCI, CBSE and central health ministry was held where it was decided to invite recommendations from all the states.
Nearly 1,970 people wrote e-mails to the core committee making useful suggestions to render the proposed test more adaptable to students of all the states. Of these 450 letters were written by students, parents and academicians from Gujarat.
Following these suggestions and recommendations, the MCI has decided to effect changes in the syllabus of the test. The first NEET exam is scheduled to be held in May 2012.
