Attention Aspirants, The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) could soon be scrapped for postgraduate students. The Union Health Ministry has proposed to do away with NEET-PG and instead the final MBBS examination would be enough for admission in MD and MS programmes.
As per the official “The amendment has been incorporated in the revised draft National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill which would be sent to the Cabinet soon”. According to them, the changes have been incorporated in the bill on the directions of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).
According to the amendments, entry into PG programmes will be on the basis of the result of the National Exit Test (NEXT), which would be held as a common exam across the country. So Candidates would not have to appear in a separate exam after clearing the MBBS final exam for admission to PG courses. Also added that the students would not be required to appear in a separate exam after MBBS to obtain a license to practice.
However, for admission to PG programmes at AIIMS Colleges, Clearing a separate entrance exam will remain mandatory. On the other hand, As per the sources, The NEET Super Speciality, Which is a national level entrance examination conducted to provide the admission in DM/MCH courses, will continue the same.
Best of Luck…!!
