Will NEET PG be made an exit exam for MBBS graduates?
Though the government has started working to make this possible but this is still just a proposal right now. It’s highly unlikely that it will be implemented this year.
When will NEET Super Specialty be conducted?
NEET SS 2017 will be organized in May-June 2017.
What about Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Jammu and Kashmir?
Andhra Pradesh, Telangana & Jammu and Kashmir have been bestowed a special status wherein these states do not contribute their Medical PG Seats to the All India 50% pool and as a result, Medical Graduates from these states cannot participate in the All India Quota.
However, admissions in these states will be done through NEET scores only.
Will NEET PG replace FMGE?
This is also a proposal by government and will not likely be implemented this year. We have to wait for more details on this.
How will NEET PG be different from AIPGMEE?
The level of competition will increase. NEET PG is expected to be taken by more than 1.1 lakh candidates while AIPGMEE was taken only by 70,000 candidates.
Having said that, your chances of getting a PG seat through merit will increase since many seats will be saved that were otherwise sold by private colleges.
