MBBS Students Asked to Vacate their Colleges Seats

The 519 students who qualified the toughest NEET exam were thrown out of their colleges by the Medical Council of India (MCI). The MBBS students were issued discharge notices by MCI of India, and asked to vacate their college seats as they had been ‘directly’ admitted without counselling. Doing so meant violation of the Supreme Court order of September 28, 2016, to state governments to hold centralised counselling and allot colleges to students based on their NEET performance.

MBBS Students, say they are disheartened by this act. Qualifying NEET to get into another medical college next year is impossible as they have “no strength left to study for the exams again,” they say. According to them this is ‘unfair’ as they have high NEET scores and those with low scores continue with their MBBS course as they got admission through counselling.

“I scored 252 in NEET but I took direct admission and didn’t appear for counselling. MCI has cancelled my admission. But in my college, many students who have come through counselling have scored less than 200,” says Pratibha, a student from Venkateshwara Institute of Medical Sciences, Gajraula, UP.

MCI had provided a list of 17 colleges from four states which admitted the 519 students directly. These include Hind Institute of Medical Sciences and Saraswati Medical College, Unnao, affiliated to King George’s Medical University, Lucknow. Krishna Mohan Medical College and Hospital, Mathura, affiliated to Dr BR Ambedkar University, Agra; Rajshree Medical Research Institute, Bareilly, and Rohilkhand Medical College and Hospital, Bareilly, affiliated to MJP Rohilkhand University, among others.
