1.The Union Health Ministry has cleared an amendment to a law, which, if cleared by Parliament, will allow the Medical Council of India to conduct a single, common entrance test for admissions for undergraduate and post-graduate medical courses across the country.

2.The test may be introduced in 2016 if the Cabinet approves the proposal. A draft note has been circulated among the Ministries before it is presented to the Cabinet, a senior Health Ministry official told PTI.

3.After Cabinet clearance, the amended Indian Medical Council Act needs to be cleared by Parliament for the MCI to finally have the power to conduct such an examination.

4.If it comes into being, students will be spared the burden of traversing the length and breadth of the country and pay multiple entrance fees to take several tests for a shot at a medical seat. The MCI, it is learnt, has told the government that it could either notify an existing examination, for instance, the All-India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT), or a new one as the common test.
