No MBBS Entrance Exam For Students In Tamil Nadu

The Tamil Nadu Government said there would be no entrance exams for MBBS in the state for 2011-12. Students will be considered only on the basis of the marks obtained by them at 10+2 level. Previously, Supreme Court had given its approval to the Medical Council of India (MCI) to conduct Common Entrance Examination for admission to MBBS across the country. However, state government challenged Madras High Court MCI notification which was willing to make all entrance test compulsory for admission to MBBS and got a stay on January 6 this year.
