NMC Explains Infeasibility of Conducting NEET UG Exam Twice a Year

The National Medical Commission (NMC) has explained its reasons for not conducting the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) UG twice a year. In response to a letter from the All India Student’s Union demanding biannual NEET UG exams, the NMC stated that all MBBS seats are already filled during the counselling process, making it unfeasible to hold the exam twice.

The NMC highlighted the significant financial and resource requirements associated with conducting the NEET UG exam, emphasizing that holding it twice a year would impose an excessive burden on the government’s finances. As an alternative, the NMC suggested that candidates should apply for the medical entrance test in the following year.

In other news, the NMC has withdrawn the recently issued guidelines under the Graduate Medical Education Regulations 2023. The commission has now invited feedback from stakeholders on new guidelines, including the Competency Based Medical Education Curriculum Regulations 2023, Minimum Standard Requirements for Establishment of New Medical College/Increase of Seats in MBBS Course Regulations 2023, and Maintenance of Standards of Medical Education Regulations 2023.
