Just when you thought that all the issues with regards to the NEET have been settled, a new issue has come to the fore with regards to the Medical entrance test. With the apex court making the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) obligatory to obtain admissions into the medical and dental universities, there is disarray over the destiny of NRI admissions. In the state of Gujarat, as many as 260 seats in the various medical universities are saved for NRI students.
According to some of the senior members of these universities in Gujarat, NRI students were given admission on premise of equal endorsement of HSC. They were exempted from showing up for the Gujarat Common Entrance Test (GujCET).
"With NEET now made obligatory at last, the NRI kids won't have the capacity to show up for the test. In the event that it is ordered to offer admission to NRIs just on premise of NRI score, a large number of them may not take affirmation in Gujarat and pick universities in Russia, Philippines, China and so on," said a high authority of one of the major medical schools.
Authorities said that no less than 60-80 NRI students take admissions within the NRI quota while NRI-supported students are conceded in different seats. The expense of NRI students ranges from Rs12 lakh to Rs15 lakh.
"At present there is no clarity on the admissions of the NRI students. It might be ideal if clarity is acquired on the issue," the senior member of another medical school said.
