The NEET debate in the country has been on since 2010, when the idea of conduction the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test was first developed.

The latest in the debate is the apex court’s order stating that no special ordinance can be given to the state of Tamil Nadu for admissions under medical colleges. The EPS-led govt was asking for an exemption for the state from the test. As for now, the SC has directed TN to follow NEET and start counselling sessions according to the NEET Merit List of 2017.
