  • What is NEET ?

    There is a major change in medical entrance exam, all exam will be combine and it will be NEET. The first country-wide common entrance examination for 42,000 seats will be conducted by CBSE in 2013.

    About NEET :

    National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) for admissions to MBBS (NEET-UG) and Postgraduate Courses (NEET-PG) will be prepared by the National Council of Education, Research and Training (NCERT), The NEET will be the only entry route in nearly 42,000 MBBS seats in private and government medical colleges, adding that the mammoth examination would be conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education. The modalities for NEET-PG (MD/MS) for 20,600 seats are also being worked out. The admissions through NEET are applicable from the academic year commencing from 2013-14.

    In every possibility, the prospered NEET is likely to be an extension of AIPMT. With NEET turning to be a single entrance for medical admissions, the number taking this examination is likely to go up as compared to those taking AIPMT. So a two stage examinations itself may be doubtful. But these are all speculations. Only an official announcement can clarify this aspect.

    • No negative marking for wrong answers.

    • Scores will be calculated on percentile basis.

    • The minimum score for passing is 50 percentile whereas for SC/ST/OBC the minimum score is 40 percentile.

    • NEET will be held at ALL District Head Quarters of every state.

    • Medium of instruction for NEET examination is English and Hindi.

    • The allotted time for NEET is 3 Hours or 180 minutes.

    The NEET exam will consist of questions from EACH of these following subjects:

    • Physics (45 questions)

    • Chemistry (45 questions)

    • Biology (90 questions)

    (ISEET) Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test

    Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test (ISEET): The Common Engineering Entrance Examination:

    The Human Resource Development Ministry, Government of India is all set to go ahead with its plan to conduct a common engineering entrance examination from 2013, but the first nation-wide test may only cover technical institutions funded by the Centre.

    IIT-JEE and AIEEE — for long the gateways to India’s top engineering colleges including the IITs and NITs— is all set to be replaced by a brand new test to be called as ISEET – Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test. As reported by The Indian Express on January 31, the new exam modeled on lines of the international test – ‘SAT’ comes into force starting 2013. The introduction of this test is expected to help do away with multiple entrance examinations and thereby reduce the stress levels of students.

    ISEET Benefits

    • Borderline IIT students can directly get admission into next best colleges as they will not be required to sit for AIEEE. ISEET will be conducted twice or more in a year and scores will be valid for 2 years. Students will get more chances to improve their score.

    • The coaching classes will be helping students to prepare directly for IIT level paper, board examination and aptitude test. Students will now give equal importance to board examinations along with ISEET mains and advanced papers.

    • Engineering aspirants can focus on one examination and prepare accordingly. They will not be required to appear for various engineering entrance examinations conducted every year.

    • If the papers are going to be set by IITians, then the standard of the examination will be maintained.

    • Students can feel relaxed and study better. They will no longer be required to deal with pressures related to Time and Money including Examination fees and travel expenses.

    • Students can choose a choice of their Institution due to zero restriction and physical limitation.

    • Students won’t have to schedule and prepare for different exams separately. They can focus on a single one.

    ISEET Exam Date (Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test):

    The ISEET is going to be effective for admissions into the IITs and NITs for Admission year 2013 and therefore is expected to be conducted in either March or April 2013.

    ISEET Test Pattern (Indian Science Engineering Eligibility Test):

    ISEET will have two papers on the same day

    ISEET Main :

    – Duration of ISEET Main – 3 hours

    – Paper-Test Pattern of ISEET Main – Areas Tested at ISEET: Reading Comprehension & Critical – Thinking and Logical Reasoning

    – Weightage to ISEET Main: 30% minimum

  • ISEET Advance :

    – Duration of ISEET Advance – 3 hours

    – Paper-Test Pattern of ISEET Main – Areas Tested at ISEET: Problem Solving Ability in Basic Science Subjects

    – Weightage for ISEET Advance: 30% minimum

    – The two tests ISEET Main and ISEET Advance together will indicate a candidate’s scholastic level and aptitude for science and engineering.
