NEET PG 2024: Exam Date, Registration, Eligibility, and More

NEET PG 2024

New Delhi: The National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBEMS) has released the preliminary exam schedule for the medical entrance examinations to be conducted in 2024. The schedule includes the date for the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test-Postgraduate (NEET PG) 2024, which is one of the most sought-after exams for admission to postgraduate medical courses in India.

NEET PG 2024 Exam Date

According to the NBEMS timetable, the NEET PG 2024 exam will be held on March 3, 2024. The exam will be conducted in a computer-based mode at various test centers across the country. The exam will consist of 300 multiple-choice questions covering the subjects taught in the MBBS curriculum. The duration of the exam will be 3 hours and 30 minutes.

The NEET PG 2024 exam date is much earlier than the previous years, as the exam was usually held in the last week of June or the first week of July. This change is by the recommendations of the National Medical Commission (NMC), which is the apex regulatory body for medical education in India. The NMC has suggested that the NEET PG exam should be conducted in the first quarter of the year so that the counseling and admission process can be completed by the end of August.

However, the NBEMS has clarified that the exam date announced is only tentative and subject to change. The board will declare the final and confirmed date for the NEET PG 2024 exam soon. Candidates are advised to keep checking the official websites of the NBEMS, or, for the latest updates and notifications.
