The Foreign Medical Graduate Examination will be conducted on June 18, 2021, by the National Board of Examinations. The online application for the same was filled from April 16, 2021, to May 6, 2021. Owing to the written exam in June, NBE will release the admit card for the same on June 11, 2021 at nbe.edu.in. The candidates who have filled the application form and are waiting for the admit card can check the same on the official website once it is released. As per the date schedule, the result of the exam in June will be out by June 30, 2021.
The major concern here is that the Association of MD Physicians has asked the Delhi HC to postpone the exam amid the covid pandemic. However, the plea of AMD has been opposed by NBE and NMC who have suggested that students who have a problem in appearing for the June session can take up the exam in December 2021.
Amidst all of these protests, the NBE has decided to move forward with releasing the admit cards for the candidates who are willing to appear for the examination on their website. The candidates who wish to download the same can visit the portal and find the FMGE June 2021 link. Post this, they will be redirected to the official webpage of the FMGE June 2021 session. Therein, they have to click on the Download Admit Card option. Next, the candidates have to enter their USER ID and Password along with the captcha code and hit submit button. In the end, the admit card of the candidate will be displayed on the screen that they have to download and keep for future use.
