Maharashtra: Since the announcement of PG NEET and NEET SS as a sole entry point to higher medical education in the country, from this year, confusion have grown in the mind of students regarding the process and pattern of the said examination. While the National Board of Examinations has been entrusted with the responsibility of conducting the NEET PG and NEET SS from this year onwards, the organisation itself in the process of chalking out the details and guidelines of the impending exam .
Meanwhile, Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors have written to the Union Health minister, demanding that the said examination should be held in a single session, in order to ensure a “LEVEL PLAYING FIELD” for all aspirants.
” For post graduate admission in our country, with one national level exam,around 1 lakh doctors would give the exam after mbbs for entry into PG. It is important that the exam pattern creates a level playing field for all students. Till now, the exam is held over a duration of 8-10 days, with each student getting a specific date, with students being exposed to a number of luck factors rather than fairness. Moreover, students are also exposed to inefficient infrastructure and suffer with major drawbacks such as system failure and computer crashes. It is important that all these issues be sorted out before holding NEET PG and NEET SS this year,” said Dr Sagar Mundada, President MARD.
” This is our rightful demand on behalf of the medical student community from this ministry to direct the National Board Of Examination for single session examination for both AIPGEE/NEET PG, DNB and NEET superspeciality on priority basis ,” he added.
