July 5, 2024 4:46 PM IST

The National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBEMS) announced new dates for the NEET PG exam, originally scheduled for June 23 but postponed as a ‘precautionary measure’ just 12 hours before the examination.

According to the announcement, the NEET PG exam will now be conducted in two shifts on August 11.

The cut-off date for purpose of eligibility to appear in the NEET-PG 2024 exam held for admission to postgraduate medical programmes in government or private medical colleges remains August 15.

The government had postponed the NEET-PG 2024 examinations following controversy over alleged exam ‘irregularities’ in the NEET-UG exam held on May 5.

The National Testing Agency (NTA), which conducted the NEET-UG examination, is facing criticism over alleged irregularities. This prompted a series of protests across the country, with demonstrators and political parties demanding to disband the NTA.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court is scheduled to hear on July 8 a batch of pleas alleging paper leaks and irregularities in the NEET-UG exam.

The NEET PG is a national-level entrance examination administered by the National Board of Examinations (NBE). It is required for admission into postgraduate medical courses such as MD (Doctor of Medicine), MS (Master of Surgery), DNB (Diplomate of National Board), and NBEMS diploma courses offered by medical colleges across the country.
