No separate medical entrance test in Assam
The Assam government has decided that it will not conduct a separate post-graduate medical entrance test and will rather follow the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) from this year.
Counselling will start as soon as the state merit list of the NEET-PG comes. The result of the NEET-PG exam conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) was declared on May 17. A source said, "We did not receive the state merit list till date. As soon as we receive it with the existing rules, we will go for counselling."
He added that 50 per cent of the total seats in the state will be allotted by NEET-PG for the state. "Earlier, the state government used to conduct its own entrance test for post-graduate medical studies," the source said.
