NEET will facilitate students to get admission in allied health, Agriculture and Veterinary courses in the State

 Recent decision of the Government of Kerala to admit students for allied Medical, Agriculture and Veterinary Under graduate programmes through NEET-National eligibility cum Entrance test creates mixed response among parents and students. After the Supreme Court announcement during April 2016 that NEET would be the only qualifying test, there was uncertainty on whether the states will conduct entrance test or not. It will facilitate students to get admission through single examination. Admission to MBBS, BDS, Bachelor in Ayurveda, Homeo, Sidha, Unani, BSc Agriculture, and BSc Forestry, Bachelor in Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry and Fisheries Science will be through NEET scores. There is common apprehension among parents and students about the probable questions of NEET and Kerala Medical Agricultural examination. Since the syllabus is same there is no need for panicky about the questions. But in order to succeed in NEET, students require appropriate coaching. Success in NEET depends on the scoring rate of Biology questions. Of the 180 questions there will be 90 questions from Biology and 45 questions each from Physics and Chemistry. Total marks will be 760. A student who scores 90 percent marks in Biology and 50 percent each from Physics and Chemistry may get nearly 500 marks so as to get better rank positions for medical or allied courses. With regard to Agriculture and Veterinary Science, Indian Council of Agriculture Research and Veterinary Council of India used to conduct National level entrance tests for 15 percent of the seats available under National quota in State Agricultural, Veterinary and Fisheries Universities. They have not yet included their selection through NEET rank list.
By 2017 spectacular employment opportunities are emerging in the country in agri and allied sectors including E commerce, Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Dairying, Banking, inter disciplinary research, Agribusiness and Food processing sectors. Since services sector creates more employment, it is the need of the hour for agriculture and allied sector to exploit the opportunities in services sector to improve career potential. Selection of students through NEET will position the courses at the National level in a better manner so as to facilitate agriculture graduates to perform well in career and Post graduate programmes within the country or abroad. When the country is looking for clean India, clean air and clean water and to double the farmers profit by 2022 these sectors are emerging as the catalysts to achieve these targets.
Recently Government of India decided to conduct NEET in 6 regional languages like Hindi, Assamese, Tamil, Telugu, Gujarati and Marathi. It may facilitate students from rural areas of these states to perform better in the National level eligibility tests. Unfortunately students and parents hadn’t assessed the gravity of the situation.
