Has turned the pied piper around.Sushmita Krishnan
The common entrance test for students aspiring medical courses in their undergraduate level has been a very sensitive issue and has tickled the fancies of many to come up with their views. Now let us try to closely understand what it feels to welcome such an exam.
Each state had its own way of counselling to allot seats in medical colleges . But it has streamlined to one single process through NEET . Many were unable to get into medical colleges in other states , but now it has been possible through the all India quota.
Students also has the burden of preparing for so many entrance exams but one the crap is over with a single shot. We have so far seen the overall perspective of NEET.
Now let us see the students point of view about NEET. Some states which follow a different state syllabus find it harder. For instance ,Tamil Nadu with so much novel educational methodologies find it very difficult only because of the variation in the syllabus. A major drawback in Tamil Nadu is the negligence of class 11 th portions which sums upto 50 % of the question paper.
Being a student from Tamil Nadu , I can closely tell you the ongoing confusion of NEET. The maximum number of students in the state are enrolled in state board schools. They are well paid by parents and provide good infrastructure. So it is possible for them to provide the advanced learning for NEET from the upcoming academic year. If not students those who can afford to access the coaching centers succeed in learning.
But we must not forget that there is a considerate number of students who are academically eminent but financially in a lower level. Those pursuing in government schools are barred from the opportunity of getting into medical colleges.
I am making it clear to the readers that my conviction is not against NEET , but a demand in a betterment of education in the government schools. The government school teachers are paid the highest and are expected to be more qualified , then why not an extra mile in the improvement of education in their schools. The books can be improvised and taken to a higher standard meeting the needs of entrance exams.
A student preparing for class 12 public exams has to specially go for coaching classes to perform well in NEET. In that case the community of coaching centers begin to flourish. So , the purpose of education becomes a commercial process.
So , it is high time that the syllabus of state reach a standard wherein a student interested in self study is able to achieve a considerate level of success through hard work.
