Medical college education: NEET cut off variation: any moral questions by society, celebrities and media?

Going by selection of candidates as doctors, If given a choice, by whom  a patient will like to get treated? A candidate who scored 20 % marks or a person getting 60% or 80%  marks.   NEET eligibility getting lower and  a  candidate getting around 20 % of marks  may be able to secure a degree to treat patients.  What will be the deciding factor? The criteria as to why a person with 60%  marks will  not be given a seat and with 20% marks will be able to secure. It will depend upon, whether  a student  is able to pay the exorbitant fee or not. Present system and mechanism of admission permit and accept such huge  variation! That strange equation is acceptable in lieu of money paid!

In this whole process, who will be the sufferer?

Is it only the  meritorious  and honest candidate. children who has worked hard are going to lose faith in system, besides irreversible damage to career.

– the people and society, who wish for best doctors.

– in general, honesty and hard work and merit is a causality.

– But in the long run candidate, who purchase degrees with money  may also suffer. As in the times of consumerism and risk associated with less desirable medical services. Candidates may themselves be at risk. Rich candidates may be capable of becoming health investors and health managers by money power, so as to evade  the increasing litigation. But  those from average family backgrounds ,who practice as doctors, will  be at some risk in today’s  difficult environment   for doctors.

 Exit  exams from these paid colleges  need to be better regulated. These colleges are minting money for distributing degrees. Likely is that, ultimately  most of the  students will pass and try to recover  their investments.

Infrastructure ,  number of teachers and investment on training is unlikely to be uniform in such colleges.   It is a matter of speculation, how much facilities a student gets, specially at a time uncertainty  about uniformity of medical education is a matter of great debate. It is also doubtful that money charged  from students as fee, is spent on medical education of the aspiring doctors.

      National exit exam may solve uniformity issues to some extent, but like NEET, its correct  implementation is a big   uncertainty itself.  Doctors have to listen comments about quality of doctors everyday. Rather than doctors themselves, it is the system to select them  needs improvement, which permit and accepts such huge variation in marks and fee.  Someone will definitely ponder, why one should not get best available candidate as doctor?

  1. NEET again taken by those who can invest in coaching. Good coaching needs about Rs. 100,000 or even more. The some deserving candidates are not in a position to afford that money and hence they are not faring well. Further, what is going on India, all the entrance exam are paving way to make money by some middle man and they also take care of the all their links including the private medical college and Govt official. This is exactly happened in Vyapam and it is happening in all exam and may be with NEET UG also.

Medical aspirants who do not have money are not able to do mbbs …coz money matters ….who are we to blame on Non availability of less cost seats ..More infrastructure equals more opportunities for Students with low marks not to that extent…Marks studied from the past cant decide what we will do for the future….It is the youth who will have to change and stop this chain of Paying hefty sums and investing for a peice of paper….
