The UGC has decided to instruct all constituent medical colleges of deemed universities to comply with the MCI on adopting single eligibility-cum-entrance test.

In its recent meeting on May 22, the UGC took into consideration the writ petitions filed before the Karnataka HC regarding MCI notification (dated Dec 21, 2010) to conduct single eligibility-cum-entrance exam for MBBS course.

It was decided that all the constituent medical colleges  may be asked to comply with the UGC notification. The decision was taken in view of the UGC (Institutions Deemed to be Universities) Regulation, 2010. The regulation states that admission to all deemed universities shall be made strictly on merit based on an all India examination.

Commenting on the decision, T R Pachamuthu, Chairman of SRM Medical College Hospital & Research Centre, said, “When the HRD Ministry granted approval for a deemed university, it said the university can conduct its own entrance test. If the rules are frequently changed, it will only create confusion. The original status should be continued.”
