AIADMK writes to PM Modi to cancel NEET, all entrance exams

CHENNAI AIADMK coordinator O. Panneerselvam on Sunday wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting a uniform policy decision to abolish not only the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) for medical admissions but all common entrance examinations for admissions into all professional and other courses.

The former CM went on to request the PM to allow the State governments to conduct admissions for these courses based on marks obtained by students in Class 12 exams.

In his letter (a copy was circulated to the media), Mr. Panneerselvam pointed out that the syllabus prescribed for NEET would not provide a level-playing field for students pursuing other syllabi. "The rural students and students from the lower socio-economic background are unable to compete with the urban students in such common entrance examinations, as they lack the requisite training institutions and timely access to course materials," he contended.
