MBBS Aspirants have been demanding the postponement of the NEET examination scheduled on July 17 due to the fact that it is close to other competitive exams giving them very limited time for preparations. The counselling of NEET-UG 2021 ended in March and the 2022 edition is scheduled on July 17 and students have been wondering how to revise such a vast syllabus in just three months.
Moreover, other examinations such as the Boards, CUET and JEE Mains are all scheduled during the same time, creating trauma and pressure on the students. Experts suggest the NEET must be held after JEE Mains so that the students can prepare well as the session is not going to begin before February 2023 for NEET aspirants as counselling will take time.
Over 18.72 lakh registrations have been received for the NEET examination among which 771 are foreigners, 910 are non-resident Indians and 647 are overseas citizen of India card holders. English has been opted as the medium of examination by the highest number of candidates.
