NEET PG postponement, FMGE result to NEET SS criterion change
From the revision of NEET Super Speciality eligibility criteria to FMGE result and extension for MBBS internship for NEET PG
February began as an eventful month for medical students with multiple notifications released for undergraduate and postgraduate aspirants.
From the revision of NEET Super Speciality eligibility criteria to FMGE result and extension for MBBS internship for NEET PG, here’s what all happened in the medical education sector this week.
NEET PG aspirants, along with the FAIMA delegation, on February 7 protested at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi demanding the postponement of the exam.
Candidates are urging the authorities to postpone the medical entrance exam to May or June stating that there is a huge gap between the counselling and the examination date.
In response, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya on February 10 told Lok Sabha that the NEET-PG examination will be conducted as per schedule on March 5 for those aspiring to get admission to postgraduate medical courses.
Considering the requests of thousands of students, Union Health Ministry has extended the cut-off date for MBBS aspirants to complete their mandatory one-year internship to August 11.
Earlier, on January 13, the cut-off date was extended from March 31 to June 30.
With this decision, more than 13,000 MBBS students across 5 states/UTs will now be eligible for NEET PG 2023 exam.
The National Board of Examinations (NBE) will re-open the registration window for such students on February 9 which will remain available till February 12.
