Hyderabad, October 27: Medical admissions in Andhra Pradesh from next year (2012-13 academic year) most likely will happen based on the rank obtained in a proposed All India Medical Entrance Test. According to the Andhra Pradesh Health Minister D.L. Ravindra Reddy, MBBS admissions may come out of EAMCET. As the medical admissions are going out of basket, the EAMCET pattern may also changed.
Earlier, Union Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal indicated that the government is seriously mulling to conduct a uniform medical entrance test to conduct the MBBS admissions in the country, instead of state wise admission tests.
While AP is conducting EAMCET for professional courses admissions, Karnataka with KCET, Tamil Nadu with TCET and Maharashtra with MHCET are the key test for state wise admissions.
The HRD move was aimed to maintain the uniformity in academic calendar in medical education and improve the quality.
