Are you a NEET 2019 Aspirant? Medicine is one the most important field that provides Service directly to the people. A Student must have Good percentage in PCBM since Grade 9 to choose Medicine as a Career. National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) is an entrance exam in India for students to pursue UG/PG Medical and Dental science conducted by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

NEET-UG exam was conducted for the first time in the month of May 2013 in which every correct answer achieves 4 marks and 1 mark is deducted for every wrong answer. NEET-PG exam, also called as Common Entrance Test is conducted for PG medical courses and was held online for the first time in the month of November 2012.

Subsequent to the announcement from MCI regarding the commencement of NEET-UG exam in 2012, several regions including Tamilnadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, West Bengal and Gujarat opposed the changes as there was a variation in the NEET Syllabus and their state syllabus.

In 2016, All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT) was conducted in May, 2016 and was considered as NEET Phase-1. Due to several controversies, NEET Phase 2 was held in the month of July 2016. Aspirants who registered for Phase-1 were also given an option to take NEET Phase-2 with a condition that they have to give up there NEET Phase-1 score.

However, NEET 2016 was conducted in English and Hindi, it was declared that NEET Aspirants can write exams in their regional languages from 2017. NEET Question Papers are published in 9 regional languages such as Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi, Odia, Tamil, Telugu, alongside English and Hindi.

Why Tamilnadu candidates are facing difficulties with NEET Exam?

Tamil Nadu Professional Courses Entrance Examination (TNPCEE) was an entrance examination conducted for admitting students into engineering and medical Colleges in Tamilnadu. This exam was first introduced in 1984 by Anna University behalf of state government.

Later, by 2006 it was spared and substituted by Unified Single Window Counselling, based on +2 marks. Prior to TNPCEE, an Interview was conducted to choose the right candidates. Before 2016, Tamilnadu has its own medical counselling system and private medical colleges have their own Admission Guidelines too.

Tamilnadu candidates are facing difficulties with NEET Exam because of:

  • Simple state-board syllabus for 11th-12th
  • Inadequate NEET Training in schools
  • Lack of authorized NEET Coaching institutes
  • Insufficient CBSE/ICSE schools in the state
  • Fees structure
