The coronavirus pandemic already had a devastating impact on the academic calendar. Further to that, all competitive examinations like NEET, JEE, etc. were delayed.
NEET PG is a national level entrance exam conducted once a year in online mode for postgraduate admission to medical colleges in the country.
Although, the official announcement in regards to NEET PG 2021 dates have been made. NEET PG 2021 is to be held on 18th April, 2021 which is delayed by three months. The National Board of Examinations (NBE) has commenced the registration process for National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (NEET) PG 2021 on its official website from 23rd February, 2021 and will be available till March 15. Candidates seeking admission to various MD/MS and PG Diploma Courses offered by medical colleges/institutes must complete the registration within the stipulated date.
The National Board of Examinations (NBE) on February 23 released the information brochure for the NEET-PG on the official website of the board. The NEET PG 2021 official bulletin includes some major changes that include the number of the NEET PG 2021 exam centers, hike in NEET PG 2021 application fees, and change in exam schedule amongst others.
Due to the change in the exam pattern of NEET PG 2021 aspirants are under pressure. Although, the number of questions were reduced to 200 from 300 and the time was increased by half an hour which means aspirants will get 21 seconds extra for each question. But this could be a drawback for the aspirants due to which they are under pressure. The reason is there are a lot of chances that NEET PG 2021 paper will be lengthy in comparison to previous year exam papers. Even the syllabus is not yet disseminated and decided which is also creating chaos and confusion among aspirants.
Commenting on this Mr. Gaurav Tyagi, Founder- Career Xpert said,” Students should not panic and stay focused. There are lots of chances that more clinical questions will be asked, paper will be lengthy but this is the opportunity for the aspirants who have command on clinical part. It can be presumed that questions based on videos, gifs will be more and one liner questions from first and second prop i.e. Anatomy and Non-Clinical branches can be there. Hence, students should review the previous year questions from these sections, this can help them to score good marks. There are chances that this time cut-off will be average and this can somewhere affect the counseling process. But students should focus on the clinical part and give their best. My best wishes to all the aspirants.”
