The National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test-Postgraduate examination has been rescheduled to July 7 this year, the National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences said on Tuesday. The cut-off date for the purpose of eligibility for the exam this year is August 15.

The exam was earlier scheduled to be held on March 3. “In supersession of NBEMS notice dated 09.11.2023 and pursuant to the receipt of NMC letter dated January 3, 2024, the conduct of NEET-PG 2024 examination, which was earlier notified to be tentatively held on March 3, 2024, stands rescheduled,” the NBEMS said in a notice. “The NEET-PG 2024 shall now be conducted on July 7, 2024,” it said.

Welcoming the decision, Dr Arival Mathur, President, Federation of Resident Doctors of Association, said, “The extended gap between counseling and the exam, being addressed through the rescheduling of exam, is a positive step that recognizes the ongoing challenges posed by the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope that the adjustment will contribute to a more streamlined academic session, considering the persisting disruptions caused by the pandemic”.

The NEET-PG is an eligibility-cum-ranking examination prescribed as the single entrance examination for admission to various MD/MS and PG diploma courses under the National Medical Commission Act, 2019.
