No negative marking in MBBS entrance exams (NEET-UG)

Medical Council of India (MCI) has setup an expert committee to review the proposed common entrance exam for MBBS admission across India and recommend changes to enhance the overall quality of the exam.

The committee has recommended a key change in the MBBS entrance exam to remove negative marking.

The committee has also recommended conducting the exam with objective questions and producing a percentile score based on the candidate’s performance. The percentile score should then be utilized to determine the merit holders in the National eligibility-cum-entrance test (NEET-UG) for admission in MBBS programs from 2012.

The committee has suggested that these changes will help students to find appropriate MBBS college, which they could not get earlier because of low scores. Many colleges had no takers for their seats because there were no eligible candidates. The MCI may also reduce the cut-off for MBBS admission from 2012 onwards.

These recommendations have been submitted to MCI who will take a final decision after consulting it with the health ministry. If the planned changes are introduced in the MBBS admissions by MCI, it will radically impact the pattern of NEET-UG which is expected to be held on May 13, 2012.
