As per the latest news, those students who want to get admission in AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, and Homoeopathy) will also have to appear NEET 2018. There are various states which conducted CET(Common Entrance Test) for AYUSH exam. There are various states, those conducted their own CET exam for AYUSH. Students are confused whether they have to write NEET (National Entrance cum Eligibility Test) or only CET exam. Every aspirants minds a question will be raised i.e. Can Ayush Applicants give NEET 2018?
There are various colleges which are conducted their own entrance exam but they are not issued any notification whether the admission is on the basis of NEET 2018 or CET. Some of the entrance exam is listed below:
- Amrita University BAMS Exam
- Punjab Ayush Entrance Test(PAET)
- CEEAH Gauhati
- HP BAHMS/BAMS
- MP PAHUNT
Karnataka Examination Authority(KEA) also conduct CET. They are also confused for the same. They have to soon call for the application forms and finalize the brochure who will eligible to apply. They also need a clarity from the Department of Health and Family Welfare.
Last year, Central Council of Indian Medicine had sent letters to chief secretaries and health secretaries of all states, that NEET will be the single entrance exam for the AYUSH courses as well as MBBS/BDS courses.
However State Government conducted only the CET exam and take admission on the basis of CET Rank.Through CET rank 20% seats are filled in unaided colleges and 80% seats are filled in aided colleges in all government colleges.
This year students are concerned from the Ayush Exam that syllabus is totally differ from the 2017 exam. NEET Exam is purely based on NCERT syllabus whereas CET Exam depends on state syllabus which is easy for the students. Specially for KEA students CET syllabus mostly covered the PUC syllabi prescribed by the Department of Pre- University Education of Karnataka state. It is not just for the KEA state also for other states who face difficulty. NEET 2018 will be conducted on May 6,2018. Students need to switch from the state syllabus and move to the NEET syllabus quickly.
