Telangana, Andhra Pradesh students still have to take NEET

The decks were cleared on Tuesday for exempting state government medical colleges from the Supreme Court-mandated Neet (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) for a year with President Pranab Mukherjee giving assent to the Central government’s Ordinance before starting on his China visit.

However, students from Telangana state will have to write two tests — Eamcet and Neet — to fulfil their ambition of a career in medicine. While Eamcet will form the basis for filling all seats in government colleges and 50 per cent convener quota in private medical colleges, Neet will be the qualifying exam for management quota seats in all private colleges.

And students will have to write these two exams inside two months. While Neet is slated for July 24, the fresh date of TS Eamcet is yet to be announced. Students from AP, however, have been spared the twin exam worries because they have already cleared the Eamcet hurdle and now need to write only the Neet to get admissions under management category in various private colleges.
