NEET PG: Fate of Andhra Pradesh will be clear only by Nov.22
NEET has been a total disaster since the date of announcement. With registration, exam slot booking, rescheduling all getting messed up, now eligibility of candidates from certain states is being questioned. Regarding APPG(Andhra Pradesh Post Graduate Entrance) for Medical Education , confusion still remains and this article on DC only adds to the confusion. The report is a little inaccurate regarding mention of numbers of candidates appearing for exam.
Update: As on 23rd November , Andhra Pradesh Doctors are asked to appear for NEET PG.
The state government on Friday said that it can provide some clarity on the National-Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test for admission to post-graduate medical courses only after the Supreme Court delivers its final verdict on this matter on November 22.
About 50,000 students from Andhra Pradesh have registered for the first-ever Neet to be held from November 23 to December 6.
But since November 6, when the AP High Court granted a stay on the implementation of the test, students are not sure whether they must take the test or not.
Speaking to reporters, the minister for medical education, Mr Kondru Murali, said that if the Supreme Court exempts the state from Neet, the government will conduct its own entrance for PG medical admissions in February 2013.
“The government understands the concerns of PG medical aspirants. However, it cannot take any decision on this issue at this stage. We will have clarity on Neet based on the SC verdict,” he said.
