Ahmedabad: Students aspiring for admissions through management quota in medical colleges will now be able to fill a single form and access the common pool of seats from all self-financed medical and dental colleges, said health minister Nitin Patel, after a meeting with the deans and management of self-financed colleges.
Sources in the health department said admissions to the management quota pool will be handled by a committee separate from the Admission Committee of Professional Medical Educational Courses (ACPMEC). This committee will have government representative and one member from each self-financed college.
These admissions, however, will now be based on NEET scores and marks attained in class XII science will not be taken into count. The entire process will be conducted from BJ Medical College under a monitoring committee. Fees for these seats will be decided later by the fee regulatory committee, said officials in the health department.
