After NEET was made compulsory even for students pursuing medical courses abroad, parents of nearly 100 students who are studying in Phillippines met at Maninagar on Sunday to decide on the next course of action. Today, the parents and an agent from each state will gather in Delhi to meet the Union Health Minister to gain clarity on the new rule.
The parents said: “The first year is a premedical course and the medical course is taught over the remaining four years. Now, the biggest question for us is if it is mandatory for students who cleared NEET in 2017 to reappear for NEET in 2018? This is because they will be registered for the medical course only in 2018 in Philippines. We will request the ministry to exclude these students.”
