National Testing Agency, NTA would be releasing the calendar for the next year’s examinations soon. Amongst the many, National Eligibility cum Entrance Test, NEET 2023 exam date is of great interest to over 15 lakh students at least. While no date has been officially announced, there is a probability that NEET 2023 may not be conducted in May, as is being speculated.A report last week suggested that the NEET UG examination may be conducted in the month of May. However, soon after the National Medical Commission, NMC released the revised MBBS academic calendar. The calendar lists out that 1st year for students who have taken admission in this year would end on December 15, 2023.
It is important to point out that the academic year for medical education is decided centrally and followed by all colleges. This is also in line with the new batch of students which would enrol the next year.With the first year of this year’s batch completing in December itself, it can be presumed that starting the new batch of MBBS before end of November might be a bit of a challenge.In view of the same, it can be suggested that the undergraduate NEET counselling might end by First week of November. If MCC takes about two months to conduct the counselling, it is likely that the examination would be conducted about 3 to 4 months before that.
