National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBEMS), New Delhi, recently issued a public notice announcing the postponement of the NEET MDS 2022 examination. Previously, the National Eligibility Entrance Examination (NEET) MDS 2022 was scheduled to be held on December 19, 2021. However, due to the 2021-22 admissions being incomplete, the exam has now been shifted to June 04, 2022. With this deadline in mind, students can expect the NEET MDS 2022 application form to come out in January 2022. Once released, interested candidates must ensure to fulfil the eligibility before applying on nbe.edu.in.
Earlier, in September 2021, NBEMS had issued a public notice announcing the tentative schedule for all its exams. Based on this schedule, the NEET MDS 2022 examination was expected to be conducted on December 19, 2021. After announcing the tentative schedule, candidates were advised to visit the official portal frequently for any updates on the exact schedule. The two websites to visit were natboard.edu.in or nbe.edu.in.
After almost a month, authorities had not released the NEET MDS 2022 application form or even the exact schedule of events. Instead, they announced a postponement of almost 6 months for the conduction of the PG Dental exam. This was, reportedly, because of a delay in admissions for the 2021-22 academic session.
The NEET MDS 2021 examination was held in December 2020 and results for the same were announced a month later, in January 2021. The counselling schedule could have begun immediately but was delayed due to a delay in the conduction of NEET PG 2021. Finally, the postgraduate medical exam was held on September 11, 2021, due to which the counselling session for both exams started late.
To conduct the PG dental exam for the 2022-23 academic year while conducting the 2021-22 counselling session could have led to chaos and confusion. Possibly, with that viewpoint in mind, NBEMS decided to postpone the exam to the next year.
Based on the NEET MDS 2022 new exam date, the application form and information brochure might come out in January 2022. Candidates will have a good 2-3 months to fill the online application form but, only after ensuring their eligibility for the exam. A correction window will also be provided later to rectify any mistakes committed in the application form. All these events will take place only on the official portals. Hence, candidates are advised to visit these websites or the space here for any updates in this regard.
