Hope the thrusting of NEET on Non-CBSE Syllabus MBBS aspirants of Tamil Nadu is adapted by the NEET qualified candidates.

We salute the brave students who are from the state board syllabus but yet wrote NEET which is dominated by CBSE syllabus.

An interesting statistics about Tamil Nadu, who agreed to NEET reluctantly this year 2017.

Can you believe, the state board syllabus studied XII students are 3.46 lakh and CBSE studied students are 4675 only?

Should the Tamil Nadu state run medical colleges be NEET exempted?

Practically it looks unfair to thrust NEET on these hapless students who are not comfortable with CBSE Syllabus NEET.





The Tamil Nadu government and the opposition tried their best to avoid NEET. Even going for an approval in the Tamil Nadu assembly, however, could not get President’s nod.

The reason is that nobody is above the law; and that the passing of amendment of IMC Act 1956 in 2016  in parliament; to cancel all entrances exams and have only NEET.

Thrusting NEET on Non-CBSE Syllabus MBBS aspirants of Tamil Nadu | Affect the results and ranks

83,859 Tamil Nadu students appeared for NEET 2017,  however, 32,570 have qaulifying marks. It is not surprising that MBBS aspirants of Tamil Nadu were missing the top ranks, because of the CBSE syllabus.



The state selection committee, however, has taken a number of options to follow the procedure of counseling.

One of the options being giving weight age to state board XII marks and reservation for state students.

The other option is completely on the NEET ranks merit list sent by CBSE.

Director of Medical Education of Tamil Nadu is waiting for the final state government’s nod.

The counseling to start from the 3rd week of July, i.e., once the center completes the All India quota seats.

Is the thrusting of NEET on Non-CBSE Syllabus MBBS aspirants of Tamil Nadu is fair? Hoping the state board syllabus dominated students slowly adapt to CBSE NEET.
