Single MBBS, BDS entrance on Sunday
The first phase of the single National Eligibility Entrance Test, NEET for admissions to MBBS and BDS courses across the country will be held tomorrow. The Supreme Court today refused to accord an urgent hearing of a plea seeking modification of its earlier order with regard to NEET. A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice T S Thakur said, the matter had been heard by the another bench and it is over for now.
The observation came when lawyers, representing some students, said that the order on NEET needed to be modified as students who had prepared for the state-level entrance exams will find it difficult to prepare for the NEET in such a short span of time. The Apex court, for the time being refused to entertain the plea and asked the lawyers concerned to file an application which would be heard by the regular bench, hearing the case.
The Supreme Court had yesterday said that the entrance test for admission to MBBS and BDS courses for the academic year 2016-17 will be held as per the schedule through the two-phased common entrance test NEET on May 1 and July 24.
