National Eligibility cum Entrance Test, NEET 2023 notification would be released by National Testing Agency in a few weeks from now. The entrance examination is the largest national level examination conducted in the country. National Testing Agency, NTA would be conducting the examination in pen and paper mode and announcing the exam dates soon. Sources have now shared suggested exam dates for NEET UG 2023.While the final dates have not been announced as yet, sources have revealed that NTA has shared three probable dates with Ministry of Health and Family Welfare as well as Ministry of Education for confirmation. The finalization of the date would happen only when NTA gets a nod from NMC as well as Ministry of Health.
As for the dates, sources suggest there are three probable. These are May 28, June 11 or June 18. NTA officials have shared that the intent is to conduct the NEET UG examination latest by June so as to adjust the academic calendar.“Medical Education has been severely impacted by the pandemic. While the academic calendar for all has been affected, for medical colleges, this was more so. With PG exams postponed to accommodate the high demand for doctors, these resulted in delays. The trickle down impact is that the first year classes were delayed by about 4 months,” shared a senior official with the ministry.The impact is such that as NEET UG Counselling ends, the first year classes are only just beginning in colleges. This has to be considered so as to accommodate next year’s batch.“There is a possibility that NEET UG date might be delayed till July as well. However, for most June 18 seems to be the most favourable and latest date by which the exam ought to be conducted. Final date, however, would be decided only when the schedules are available and the calendar is drawn out,” shared an NTA official on conditions of anonymity.
Based on inputs, it is safe to suggest that NEET 2023 would be conducted in last week of May or by mid-June. NTA is expected to announce the date only by January 2023 and the registration process is expected to begin from February 1, 2023 on neet.nta.nic.in. Updates, once received, would be provided on this page.
