COMEDK UGET 2016 Entrance Exam for Medical and Dental stream that was scheduled on this Sunday, May 8, 2016, has been cancelled. However, there is no change in the schedule of COMEDK UGET 2016 Entrance Exam held for Engineering Stream (Sunday, May 8, 2016).
This decision has been taken in accordance with the Hon’ble Supreme Court direction that no examination will be allowed for admission into Medical and Dental streams by any Private College or University. An email in this regard is being sent to all candidates.
More than 1 Lakh candidates have applied for COMDEK UGET 2016 to get admission to MBBS or BDS courses. COMDEK UGET 2016 Exam was going to be held for around 708 seats for MBBS course and 31 seats for BDS courses. The competent authority has asked medical/dental aspirants not to send any kind hard copies of COMDEK UGET 2016 Application Form to COMDEK Corporate office. The exam will now be held only for engineering students who will compete for around 18,000 Engineering seats in 161colleges.
The candidates can now get admission into medical or dental courses all over the country only through All India Pre-Medical Test 2016 or AIPMT 2016.
AIPMT 2016 held on May 01, 2016 will be considered as the first round of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test 2016 (NEET 2016). The candidates who have not given the AIPMT 2016 (NEET Phase 1) exam are eligible to apply for the second phase of NEET 2016. The second phase of NEET 2016 will be conducted on July 24, 2016.
The results for both NEET Phase 1 and 2 will be declared on August 17, 2016. Many State Exams such as AP EAMCET and TS EAMCET are also likely to be cancelled.
Many states have protested against National Eligibility cum Entrance Test. They argued that the syllabus of NEET is different from their state level exam syllabus. In addition to this, the students who don’t know either Hindi or English language will not be able to give this Exam as it is conducted in only two languages.
But Honorable Supreme Court has declared that other than NEET no other entrance examination will be considered for admission into medical courses in India.
