NEET PG 2024 Exam Date To Be Out This Week

The new date for the National Eligibility Entrance Test (Postgraduate) (NEET PG) is scheduled to be announced this week. The exam was postponed on June 22, less than 12 hours before the planned time, shocking pupils and raising worries about the exam body, the National Testing Agency (NTA).

The exam was postponed amid a major controversy over the NEET UG paper leak and the cancellation of the UGC-NET. NEET-PG is held to determine if MBBS graduates are eligible to enrol in postgraduate medical programmes at government and private medical schools across the country.

The last-minute cancellation of the NEET PG exam drew criticism from applicants.

Meanwhile, the Indian Medical Association (IMA), comprising over 3.5 lakh doctors as members, stated that the difficulties endured by NEET PG students are an inevitable corollary of the welcome reforms by the Government, and we hope for the robust mechanism as promised by the Government.

"We urge the Government to take swift action to ensure that counseling for admission in Medical, Dental, and other courses begins on time," it added.

The exam is conducted for admission to approximately 26,168 Doctor of Medicine (MD), 13,649 Master of Surgery (MS), and 922 PG Diploma seats in 6,102 government, private, and deemed/central universities.

NEET PG 2024: Exam Pattern

The exam consists of 200 multiple-choice questions, each with four response options. Candidates must choose the correct, best, or most appropriate answer from the given options. The exam duration is 3 hours and 30 minutes.

A correct response earns 4 marks, while an incorrect answer results in a deduction of 1 mark. No marks are deducted for unanswered questions.
