Medical CET may be held this year

Medical Council of India (MCI) is trying to hold the common entrance test (CET) for admission to government and private medical colleges from the 2011-12 academic year, as directed by the Supreme Court (SC).

A senior health ministry official had said last week it would be difficult to implement the Supreme Court order this year as many states had already issued notifications for pre-medical tests. But an MCI member said on Monday not all states and institutions had notified and CET could still be held.

Another reason MCI wants to hold the test from this year itself is the worry that an appeal against the SC order could delay it further.

“Discussions are on and we are working on conducting CET this academic session itself. We know it is late, but not too late. It will be difficult, but not possible,” a member said.
