IMA Intervenes for the cause of medical students
 
IMA was flooded with students calls after the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) said that AIPMT attempts will be included in the proposed NEET exam (UG) starting this year.
 
IMA immediately took up the cause. I spoke to MCI and also to Dr Ketan Desai, President World Medical Association (WMA). Immediate action was taken and the result is the enclosed clarification circular (click on read more for circular). 
 
The Health Ministry has now clarified that "since any new regulation takes effect prospectively, NEET-2017 shall be counted as the first attempt for this purpose irrespective of the previous attempts in AIPMT/NEET, subject to the upper age limit. CBSE has been advised to make necessary corrections in the information bulletin and on their website cbseneet.nic.in. so that any application is not rejected on this ground. Data pertaining to applications already rejected will be erased so that rejected applications can be filed afresh" (Press Information Bureau, 3.2.17).
