Biology Not Necessary For Medical Admission: Rajasthan HC

By Editor : Shreya Bansal      Aug 31, 2018      0 Comments      2,652 Views

In a recent judgment, the Rajasthan High Court has ruled that to pursue MBBS degree, the study of biology is not necessary and the students from a non-biology stream can also pursue MBBS.

The Rajasthan High Court was hearing a petition filed by two students named Neha Chaudhary and Suraj Bansal who cleared the NEET entrance examination but were denied admission by the college saying that they had not studied biology at a higher secondary level as per Undergraduate Medical Education Regulation 1997.

The court rejecting the stand taken by the college said that the candidates have cleared NEET 2018, there is no point to not grant them admission as they have already made themselves thorough with biology while preparing for the exam.

Further, the court relied on a division bench order of the Delhi High Court in the Tanishq Gangwar v. Union of India case in which it was ordered that “the disqualification of biology or biotechnology as an additional subject at 10+2 not be permissible.”

Thereby, the court ordered the allotment of admission to both the students in Mahatma Gandhi Medical College and Government Medical College Dungarpur, respectively.
