NEET PG 2023: MBBS aspirants have urged the National Board of Examinations (NBE) to postpone the NEET PG 2023 examination. The main reason for postponing the exam is due to the revision of the NEET PG exam eligibility criteria, and more students can appear for the same. Every year, students from all across India appear for the NEET PG exam to get admission to various PG programmes offered by India's various prestigious medical institutions.
NEET PG shall be replaced by the National Exit Test (NEXT) in the coming years. It is one of the prime reasons why MBBS students request the NEET PG 2023 postponement. As per the official notice, the NEET PG admit card 2023 will be released on Feb 27. The NEET PG exam 2023 is going to be conducted on Mar 5.
The applicants must complete a one-year internship by July 2023 per the National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences' (NBEMS) stated criteria. However, by August 2023, 10,000 MBBS students from various states—including Bihar, Telangana, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, etc.—will have finished their internships. If the exam is held on the specified date, such students will not be permitted to take the NEET PG 2023 exam.
Senior doctors believe these MBBS interns deserve a chance to sit for the NEET PG 2023 exam. The Telangana MBBS student's internship would be finished by August, said Dr. Karthik Nagula, president of the Telangana Junior Doctors Association. According to Dr. Nagula, these medical students are exceptionally gifted and have the ability to pass the NEET PG 2023 exam in one attempt. Why steal an opportunity from such deserving MBBS students, he questions.
Junior physicians, individual MBBS doctors, and the local and national wings of the Indian Medical Association (IMA) have all sent memoranda in support of this deferral to the Union Health Minister, Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya, over the past few weeks.
