0

One of the biggest decisions that took place in the education sector this week was the Supreme Court’s dismissal of the plea regarding postponement of NEET PG 2022 exam. In addition to that, state boards released results of board classes and universities are extending registration deadlines after NTA, too, extended registration deadline for CUET 2022.

NEET PG 2022

The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed petitions seeking postponement of the 2022 NEET-Post Graduate examinations, saying any change to the May 21 date “will create chaos and uncertainty and deficiency of doctors in hospitals”.

Medical students had been protesting from the last week of April and had also gathered at a site near the Jantar Mantar on May 8, 2022, urging the National Board of Examinations (NBE) and Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) to postpone the NEET PG exam, which is scheduled to take place on May 21, 2022.

After repeated requests from several organisations, such as Indian Medical Association, ABVP and many more, the Supreme Court decided to not extend the exam date. A bench of Justices D Y Chandrachud and Surya Kant said the registration for NEET-PG 2022 was closed on March 25 and more than 2 lakh doctors who registered for the exam will be put to prejudice if it is further postponed. “The academic schedule has already been delayed by over four months… Any delay in conducting the exam will result in fewer number of resident doctors. Only two sets of doctors are there this year. The request cannot be granted,” he added.

Meanwhile, AIIMS also announced the results for the July 2022 session for Institute of National Importance Combined Entrance Test (INI CET 2022) July session on May 14, 2022 (Saturday). Results for the INI-CET July session exam are now available on the official AIIMS website — aiimsexams.ac.in.
