Health Ministry Proposes to Scrap the NEET-PG for MD/MS admission

The Health Ministry of India has decided to do away with the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for admission at Post-Graduate level. The decision is to scrap NEET-PG for admission to MD/MS. It will instead consider the score of MBBS final exam for admission. According to resources, amendments have already been made in the National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill. The Cabinet is yet to approve the NMC Bill which has been presented by the Health Ministry.

According to the revised Bill, admission to PG programs will be based on the results of National Exit Test (NEXT). The National Exit Test (NEXT) will now be held as a common entrance test across India. Thus, MBBS graduates will no longer have to take a particular entrance examination to get admission in Post-Graduate courses. However, students seeking admission to PG courses offered by AIIMS and NEET Super Specialty will have to take the respective entrance examination.

While preparing for competitive examinations like JEE Main, Mathematics play a very significant role in the preparation. Though, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics carry equal weightage in the JEE Main exam, but Mathematics ultimately becomes the deciding factor in the end result. Mathematics also come to the students’ aid to understand the foundation of physics and chemistry.

Mathematics with its formulae and calculations enables students to improve their JEE Main score. In order to score well in Mathematics, students must ensure to learn all the important formulae and derivations by heart. Since mathematics is all about calculations, students must practice as many Mathematical problems as possible. Undertaking mock tests and solving previous year question papers will also prove fruitful in the preparation for JEE Mathematics section.

Following are some of the most important topics for JEE Main Mathematics Section:

  • Conic Section
  • Application of Derivative
  • Definite Integral
  • Sequence and Series
  • Quadratic Equation
  • Limits and Continuity
  • Trigonometry

Vinay Kumar and Arihant Publications are the best books which may be used for the preparation of JEE Main Mathematics Section. Thus, all JEE aspirants can start with the NCERT books for Mathematics for class XI and XII, and then move on to the more detailed preparation strategy which will help them score great in the Mathematics Section.
