NEET Vs EAMCET - Differences in Syllabus and Seats

As per the indications from Central and State governments till the date, there will be no relief from NEET for the students of Andhra Pradesh. Here comes the big question now. How to face all the new NEET (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test) within six months. NEET is the all India level common entrance examination for admission into medical courses (MBBS). The MCI's decision to conduct the entrance examination from 2012-13 has left the students from AP in a big confusion. Though the State Government is trying to convince the Health Ministry to exclude AP for one year from NEET, there are no positive indications from any quarter. NEET is scheduled to be conducted on 13th May 2012 across the country.

The main reason for the confusion is vast differences between State and NCERT syllabus. NEET examination will be based on NCERT syllabus. In fact the students of Intermediate final have highly busy schedule in the coming months with the practical and annual examinations. Considering this, they will have just three months to prepare for NEET. Moreover, many students are already geared up for EAMCET and it may be very difficult to tune up to NCERT syllabus at this stage of preparation.

NEET syllabus is mostly based on CBSE plus two syllabus prepared by NCERT. There is a huge difference between CBSE and State Boards Syllabus with regard to three main subjects- Physics, Biology and Chemistry. AP students will have to put extra efforts to cover the vast syllabus apart from concentrating on regular Intermediate examinations. For instance, In Physics, NEET syllabus covers extra topics such as Keplar's Laws, Kinetic Theory of Gases, Variable Force, Optics and the chapter of Electrostatics. In Chemistry also, the difference is clear with regard to number of topics. Biology is another major area where AP students will lost massively. There is difference in majority of the topics including plant physiology and biotechnology. NEET syllabus is focusing on application while EAMCET is concentrating on fundamentals of the topics.

Another drawback for AP students is non-availability of preparation in Telugu medium. The MCI has accepted to prepare question papers in Telugu for the convenience of AP students, the lack of text books in Telugu will be a big disadvantage for AP candidates. Experts feel that seats wise also Andhra Pradesh will be a looser as they have to surrender 700 seats of state pool in exchange of 400 seats (approximately) of national pool. Confusion is also prevailed regarding weightage for Intermediate marks in NEET.
