Rules for common test to medical courses finalised
According to a report by IANS the Supreme Court has been informed by the central government about the finalization of rules and regulations for all India common entrance test (CET) meant for the admission in post-graduate medical courses.
The rules and regulations for undergraduate medical course have also been made final.
According to the Solicitor General, the aim behind holding a common entrance test was to have uniformity in standards of medical education all over the country. A consensus now has been evolved among the private and government colleges on conducting these common entrance examinations.
The Supreme Court was informed that the Medical Council of India (MCI) had made announcement for the common entrance test but it had to be put off due to opposition from the Tamil Nadu government where admission to professional courses is given on the basis of marks obtained in qualifying exams.
But the court has told the government that it should not hurry with the notification and should be careful since it could lead to opposition from other states also.
