The state government is strongly batting for exemption from the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) -2013.
Stating this at Vijayawada on Tuesday , chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy said that he had held discussions with Union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad in this regard. He said that they were expecting a formal announcement from the Medical Council of India (MCI) anytime now and intermediate second year students could go ahead with their preparation for Eamcet.
Speaking at a meeting at Gannavaram, CM said that they had decided to request the Centre to allow them to join the national stream of entrance from 2014 as the second year syllabus was designed to suite only Eamcet. Since the first year syllabus from the current academic year was changed and designed on the lines of CBSE, there would not be any difficulty for the state students to take Neet from 2014, he said.
