NEET PG Counselling 2023 likely to commence on July 15
On Wednesday, the National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBEMS) announced the results for the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test-Postgraduate (NEET PG) 2023. Candidates can access their scores on the official website, natboard.edu.in.
Individual scorecards will be available for download from March 25 onwards. This year, the NEET PG cut-off for admission to MD/MS/DNB/Diploma courses is 291 for general and EWS categories, 274 for general-PWBD candidates, and 257 for SC, ST, and OBC candidates (including PwBD of SC/ST/OBC).
Qualified candidates must apply for NEET PG counselling to complete the admission process. For 50% of all India quota seats, candidates must apply with the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) on mcc.nic.in. For state quota seats, they must apply through respective state authorities.
During a hearing of the NEET PG postponement plea last month, the centre informed the Supreme Court of India that NBE intends to begin NEET PG counselling from July 15 onwards. This was in response to petitioners who argued that even if NEET PG is held in March, counselling cannot begin before August 11, which is the deadline for completing internships. The centre stated that those who do not complete their internships by July 15 and are without certificates will be allowed to participate provisionally. However, candidates are advised to regularly check the MCC website for the official schedule of NEET PG counselling.
