NEET MDS 2022, NEET PG: Medical Students Association Writes Mansukh Mandaviya to Postpone Medical Exams

Medical Students Association has written to the union health minister to postpone NEET MDS 2022, NEET PG exams in the country as NEET PG 2021 counselling is still underway and there will be less gap between counselling and NEET PG 2022. 




It all happened when All India Medical Students Association (AIMSA) decided to write to Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya mainly to demand the postpone of National Eligibility Entrance Test for postgraduate and master of dental surgery, NEET PG 2022 and NEET MDS 2022 at least by 8-12 weeks.

In their demand, they cited ineligibility of medical interns as they are about to appar for these exams. They also cited NEET PG 2021 counselling due to which they will get lesser gap between counselling and entrance exams.

This is what the AIMSA letter written to the Union Home Minister said, “We are NEET PG and NEET MDS aspirants and would like to bring to your notice the issues faced by the aspirants as well as the interns who cannot appear for the upcoming medical post graduation entrance exams,” it read.



Postpone NEET PG, NEET MDS 2022: AIMSA Writes to Health Minister


Take a look at the issue that are being faced by NEET PG and NEET MDS 2022 aspirants:


NEET PG 2021 is still underway and is likely to get over by May 3, 2022. Due to the uncertainty in the overall counselling process has left medical students in a state of confusion mainly due to its conduct and concluding date.

Another point is that the time interval between NEET PG 2021 counselling and NEET PG 2022 date is less as per their expectation. And this is going to bring stress, especially to those who couldn’t rank well in the exam.

The number of mid ranker students is huge and they obviously hope to score well if they get some more time to prepare for the exam. It can only happen after the cancellation of mop up round of counselling.




The concern for students who didn’t get a seat in the NEET PG 2021 counselling and also didn’t register for NEET PG 2022 because of remaining busy in the counselling process. The problem will start rising if they fail to get a seat in counselling and also don’t get enough time to prepare for NEET PG 2022

As per a report, 2000 interns who intended to serve during COVID-19 pandemic are ineligible for NEET MDS and NEET PG 2022 as they had to suffer delay in their final exams.

Due to all the above reasons, the president of medical students’ association urged health minister Mandaviya to simply defer the exam at least by 9-10 weeks for “smooth conduct of counselling while solving other issues.”
