Postpone NEET PG 2022 Exam! Students irked with clash in counselling and exam schedule, call it unfair

National Eligibility cum Entrance Test, NEET PG 2022 Exam postponement is being demanded by medical aspirants, soon after National Board of Examinations, NBE announced the new exam date for March 12, 2022. Disturbed about the clash between NEET Counselling and exam schedule, students have taken to social media, calling this system ‘unfair.’

NEET PG 2022 Exam! – Why are students irked and demanding postponement?

On seeing the NEET PG 2021 counselling dates, one would notice that the counselling finally concludes only on March 16, 2022. However, as per the new schedule released for NEET PG 2022, the exam would be conducted on March 12, 2022.

This has upset many candidates as those who are expecting to get seats in the later rounds of counselling, are now confused whether to apply for the next exam. Some have even said that even if they apply for the exam, they hardly have any time to prepare and give a just attempt.

Several NEET PG aspirants spoke to Times Now (on conditions of anonymity) and said that the problem is not just about many aspirants giving another exam in the middle of counselling. It is much bigger than that and stretches to the internship aspect as well.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many medical exams got postponed which led to many students starting their internships late. NEET PG 2022 aspirants further shared that under usual circumstances, interns are eligible to appear for NEET PG as their internships get completed before the counselling begins. However, this time due to the delay, it is likely that many aspirants will not be eligible to appear in the postgraduate exam, depriving them of a fair chance.
