NEET PG 2024: Aspirants fear delay in counselling process, demand full schedule | Education News


NEET PG 2024: In its recent academic calendar, the National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBEMS) announced that the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test – postgraduate (NEET PG 2024) will be conducted on March 3, 2024.

While the exam date has been released, the counselling schedule remains unannounced. Due to this, the NEET PG 2024 aspirants are apprehensive as last year the counselling process began in September. Aspirants discuss the effects and fears of the unknown schedule.

It is not right at all to have the NEET PG examination in March and the counselling to be held in September or around that because in the meantime the doctor is neither doing his duty nor studying. They are struggling with a lot of mental stress. Those people who do not get selected or are not getting a good branch, they also remain in a lot of dilemma and are not able to complete their studies, that is why there is a need to fix this quickly.

The repercussions of this abrupt gap go far and wide. It leads to increasingly stressed students and goes forth to swamped PG JRs, waiting for the juniors to arrive. Such a gap is more of an imposed waste of time for the students, who neither get some added time that can be utilised prior to the exam nor do they get their counselling done in a timely manner. Moreover, the chances of grasping a virtuous job offer in the meanwhile, stand grim.

We always want that the counselling should be on schedule, and students should not be subject to any delay. The gap between the exam and counselling is needed due to several litigations. There are a lot of states  that conduct their counselling and the NMC has to match their dates in accordance to them too. Things have been streamlined and the timelines have improved, and it is set to become better.

It is also necessary to have this gap between the exam and counselling. Completing MBBS and appearing for NEET PG is a long and tiring process, and students need this gap to destress. Moreover, there is no dearth of learning now. In this technological advanced world, there are several online courses and other ways in which candidates can sharpen their skills. They can also work at hospitals to add on to their work experience during this gap.

For the past few years, there has been confusion regarding the NEET PG exam and counselling schedule. In some instances, there have been calls for postponement as well which has further confused aspirants. It is important that NMC and NBE work together on this and ensure there is no big time gap between exam date and counseling as this creates undue pressure in our minds. Such a gap also causes disturbance in rhythm of our study. They should remember that at this stage we are even unsure if we will get our desired branch in counselling, which keeps adding on to the anxiety of uncertainty. So the timeline of this is really important, especially when future of lakhs of aspirants is at stake.

In recent years, the waiting period between NEET PG and Counselling has usually been more than six months. As an aspirant I believe that this window is a total waste of time as it creates additional burden among students. Rather than delaying the counselling process, it is better that NMC and NBE delay the NEET PG exam at least by three months so that the doctors and interns may use that time for preparation and score good marks in NEET PG.
