Jayalalitha opposes Medical Entrance Tests Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, J Jayalalitha, is learnt to have urged the Prime Minister, to exempt Tamil Nadu from the common test, proposed by Dental Council of India (DCI), for the admissions to BDS and MDS courses.

Protesting against the Centre’s move to conduct an All India Common Entrance Test for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses in dental colleges, the CM has written, “In this context, I would like to record my strong objection to the introduction of these tests,” in a letter to the Prime Minister on Friday.

The chief minister said the state government had already objected to the introduction of a NEET for admission to UG and PG medical courses in her earlier letter to the Prime Minister on July 30.

The Tamil Nadu State Government has taken steps since 2005 and finally abolished the entrance examinations in the state for professional courses from the year 2007-2008. The reason for removal has been given that such common entrance examinations put students from rural areas and lower socio-economic backgrounds at a disadvantage due to lack of geographical and financial access to requisite training institutions.
