What are the important details to know about the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test – Post Graduate (NEET PG) 2017 Examination?

Asked By: Gupta B,
A Answer By: GetmyuniEnterprise

National Eligibility cum Entrance Test – Post Graduate [NEET PG] is prescribed as the single entrance examination for individuals seeking MD/MS and PG Diploma courses in India.

The first NEET PG ever was conducted by the National Board Of Examinations from the 23rd of November till the 6th of December in 2012, which was referred to as the "Testing Window" (with 24th, 25th, 28 November and 2 December as Non-Testing days). The test was a computer-based

The test was a Computer Based Test [CBT], unlike the traditional pen and paper based test which AIIMS had been conducting over the years for admission to 50% All India Quota for Post Graduate courses in India.

The new test pattern and schedule suffered a lot of negative criticism on the fact that it was conducted about five weeks earlier than its predecessor, the annual All India Post Graduate Entrance Examination, which is scheduled around January.

The candidates went on and on about the difficulty in the Application Process for the test with long queues at the banks where the Activation Coupons were being sold. More than 38000 registrations were recorded on the neet pg servers within first few hours of launch. The exam was conducted flawlessly and over 95,000 candidates registered for the test.

A total of 38,000+ registrations were recorded on the NEET PG servers within the first few hours of launch. The exam was conducted flawlessly and over 95,000 candidates registered for the test.

NEET PG was conducted flawlessly and over 95,000 candidates registered for the test.

NEET PG was conducted flawlessly but the results were put on hold, due to a Supreme Court case concerning the exam.

More than 90,000 candidates were in wait for the NEET PG results to be declared. The results were declared on the 16th of May 2013 and were available on the National Board Of Examinations Official Website (www.nbe.gov.in).

On the 13th of May 2013, the Supreme Court issued an interim order and granted NEET the permission to declare the results pending the final verdict on the ongoing litigation. The council declared the results to NEET PGand about 49,000 out of 90,000 candidates qualified on the account of ‘Percentile’ (not percentage) as prescribed by NEET and which was also approved by the government.

And curious to the point, once the NEET PG Results were declared as per the Supreme Court order, the Government, in the first week of the month itself ordered an amendment.

Ina complete twist and turn of events, the government issued orders, were about making a departure from ‘Percentile system’ to ‘Percentage system’.

Thus the number of qualified candidates suddenly went up from approximately 49,000 to 70,000.

And we have been following the uniform ‘Percentage system’ for NEET as well ever since.

NEET has been through a lot of bumps and growths ever since and finally has gained the requisition of being the sole Entrance Exam for admissions to Medical Courses in all colleges under Indian Regulations throughout the country.
