New Delhi: The National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (Postgraduate) or NEET (PG) is likely to be held in March 2024 if the National Exit Test (NExT), which is a qualifying test for final-year MBBS students as well as a licentiate exam, could not be conducted next year.
The National Medical Commission (NMC) has provided the tentative date for the PG medical admission process. As per it, the first round of the NEET (PG) counselling for All-India Quota will be held from May 10 to 20 next year, while the state-level counselling will be held from May 20 to 31.
The academic sessions will commence from July 1 after the second and mop-up rounds, state the NMC guidelines.
Though the Commission earlier initiated measures to implement the NExT, the authorities later withdrew from it. A new date for conducting the test is yet to be announced. Given the scenario, the chances of holding the NEET (PG) in the next academic year as well are high.
The NEET-Super Specialty (NEET-SS) will be held on July 10 and the results published on the 15th. The first round of counselling will be held on July 31 and the second round on August 20. The classes will start on August 1.
NEET-SS is conducted every year by the National Board of Examinations for admission to over 5,000 D.M, M.Ch and DNB SS seats. (D.M denotes Doctorate of Medicine; M.Ch is Master of Chirurgiae; and DNB is Diplomate of National Board.)
As per the draft Post-Graduate Medical Education Regulations (PGMER) PG Medical and Super Specialty course students should prepare an e-log book by detailing the activities carried out in each week, and update it without fail. The Guides of the students should inspect this every month.
