There is good news for the students who have passed 12th from open school. Now students passed from such schools will also be able to give NEET exam. The Supreme Court has said that all open schools recognized by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and State Education Boards will now be recognized by the National Medical Council (NMC) for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET). That means students who have passed 10+2 from recognized open schools will also be eligible to appear in such examination.

Earlier, the Medical Council of India (MCI) had barred such candidates from appearing for the NEET exam as per the provisions of Section 4(2)(a) of the Regulations on Graduate Medical Education, 1997. However, in 2018, the Delhi High Court canceled this provision, terming it unconstitutional. While striking down the provisions of the Medical Council, the bench of Justice Sanjiv Khanna and Justice Chander Shekhar had then said that the Medical Council has advanced the notion that students/candidates who do not attend regular schools due to financial troubles and difficulties and social reasons , They are inferior and less capable than other students.

The High Court had also said in its decision that such a concept should be rejected as it is against the constitutional provisions and public perception as it is a violation of Article 14 of the Constitution and the right to an opportunity to acquire a professional degree. . MCI later appealed against this decision in the Supreme Court, on which the recent decision has come.

When the bench of Justice PS Narasimha and Justice Arvind Kumar started hearing the case, the counsel for the defendant submitted to the bench a copy of a letter dated 02.11.2023 written by the Undergraduate Medical Education Board to the National Medical Commission (NMC), in which it stated It was said that all open schools recognized by CBSE and State Education Board will be considered for recognition in NEET exam.

The board told the court that on the same day a public notice was also issued that the NMC has framed Undergraduate Medical Education Rules 2023. Clause 11(b) of this new rule states that students who have passed 10+2 from open school will also be considered eligible to appear for NEET exam, which was not there in the 1997 rules. After this initiative of the Board, the Supreme Court rejected the appeal and gave the green signal to the Board’s proposal.
