CBSE students incompetent to join Tamil Nadu Medical Colleges?

Do you know?
From 2013-2015, NO CBSE candidate was given MBBS admission in any government medical college in Tamil Nadu under the 85% state quota.
Do you think CBSE students are incompetent compared to Tamil Nadu State Board students? Are they not competent enough to join Tamil Nadu government medical colleges? Can they not match the Tamil Nadu state board students in studying MBBS? I do not know. But, that’s what the Tamil Nadu State MBBS admission statistics from the past three years (2013-2015) reveals. Please read through as I explain the difficulties faced by CBSE students in Tamil Nadu Professional Courses admission.


CBSE Students at a disadvantage? Times of India reported in May 2013 that CBSE students are on back foot. The report highlighted that even with very high scores, a CBSE student has little chance of getting a seat for a professional course in a good college in Tamil Nadu.

Will NEET-II be tougher than NEET-I?

The All India Pre-Medical/ Pre-Dental Entrance Examination (AIPMT) was conducted on 1st May, 2016 and it is considered as Phase-I of NEET 2016. We will call it NEET-I (National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test Phase I). Several candidates did not appear for the NEET-I and were only preparing for their state level entrance examinations and entrance examinations conducted by private medical colleges.

Subsequently Hon'ble Supremen Court of India directed that NEET should be the only entrance examination to be used for admission to MBBS/ BDS courses in all government and private medical colleges. As this was a sudden development, CBSE proposed a second phase of the NEET exam for the current year (2016) to give an opportunity to all the candidates to appear in NEET. This exam is proposed to be conducted on July 24, 2016. We will call this as NEET-II (National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test Phase II).

However, an Ordinance by the Central Government overruled the Supreme Court Judgment parti…
