NEET: Single-window test for medicals now

New Delhi: Clearing the air on admissions in MBBS/BDS courses in government and private medical colleges or in deemed universities, the Supreme court held that from now onwards institutions will have to follow NEET and admit students on the basis of their performance in the single-window test.
Several states, universities and private colleges had conducted their entrance tests during the last fortnight when the SC was hearing their pleas to allow them to admit students on the basis of their tests, but Monday's order nullifies them. 
Although NEET II is scheduled for July 24, the Supreme Court allowed CBSE and Centre to reschedule the examination date in case of logistical problems.
The Supreme Court bench on Monday made it clear that those students who had appeared for NEET-I held on May 1 would be allowed to take second phase of NEET but their marks in previous test would stand scrapped.
However, examinations conducted by AIIMS and PGIMER for their MBBS seats stand valid as they are regulated by Central legislation.
The apex court refused to modify its April 28 order which directed implementation of NEET for 2016-17 academic year itself. It said that NEET only provides for conducting entrance tests and it did not violate special provisions on reservation in colleges and rights of minority institutions.
