Parents of NEET aspirants in Mumbai oppose last-minute syllabus change

1/20/2018

A day after the human resource development (HRD) minister Prakash Javadekar announced the centre’s decision to consider the syllabi of state education boards for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET), parents of students across the country opposed the plans by voicing their opinion on social media.
 
Many parents have warned the ministry against the introduction of any last minute changes to the national level medical entrance test, which will be held in May 2018.
 
“For the past two years, students have been working hard to focus only on the central board syllabus in order to do well in NEET 2018. Now, the HRD ministry is suddenly coming up with new ideas, which will be of no help to children,” said Sudha Shenoy, mother of a NEET aspirant from Mumbai.
 
The decision to consider the inclusion of state board syllabus to the final NEET exam was in order to ensure that state board students were not at a disadvantage, Javadekar said in a press statement.
 
Apart from the last minute changes, parents have also questioned the union government’s understanding of ‘state syllabi’.
 
“Every state board covers a different syllabus and there is rarely any common link between two or more state boards. How is the union HRD ministry planning to include the syllabus of 29 state boards?” another parent said.
 
NEET was first introduced in May 2013 and all other state-conducted medical entrance tests were scrapped.
 
After receiving several complaints about the NEET exam being based solely on the CBSE syllabus, making it difficult for other board students to do well in the test, the Supreme Court ordered to scrap NEET in 2014, after which all states conducted their own entrance tests for admissions to medical institutes.
 
However, in April 2016, a petition called for NEET to be re-introduced in order to bring about a single entrance test as opposed to several different tests conducted by various states. In April 2016, the Supreme Court once again scrapped all state conducted CETs to make NEET the only entrance test applicable for medical and dental admissions.
 
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), which conducts NEET, has not yet made any announcement on registration, nor the date on which the exam will be held this year.
