NEET Online Registration To Open From December 1The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has announced the much-awaited timetable for its first “National Eligibility cum Entrance Test” (NEET) for undergraduate medical and dental courses to be held on May 12, 2013. The online registration will continue till 31 December; there is no facility for offline submission of forms, the CBSE has clarified in the announcement.

The admit cards for the pan India test will be available online between April 15 through 30. The results of NEET will be announced in the second week of June, the exact date to be notified later.

The eligibility criteria for students from open category will be minimum 50% marks in Physics, Chemistry and Biology (PCB) group. Students from reserved category will be eligible for a relaxation of 10% in the above mentioned condition.

This time around the CBSE will also conduct the NEET in the respective local languages for the states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat and West Bengal apart from English and Hindi available for all aspirants. The objective type question paper will be of 180 marks.

However, the Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court has granted interim stay on the conduct of NEET. The respondents in the petition – Medical Council of India, CBSE and State Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) – have been granted time till December 13 to submit their reply to the petition wherein the petitioners have pleaded before the Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court that the state board (in Maharashtra) syllabus is still not at par, thus putting them at a disadvantage.

“Prima facie we find that the policy of holding NEET can’t be flouted. However, prior to doing that we are of the view that it will be necessary that the syllabus for entire country is common and the students should be put on same level before they appeared in the test,” the judges observed, while issuing the notices to the respondents.
