New Delhi: Over 10,000 people who are interested in getting their MBBS have written letters to the National Testing Agency (NTA) requesting that the National Eligibility and Eligibility Test (NEET) be postponed because the date it is currently scheduled for is too close to the dates of other competitive exams.

The date of the pivotal test has been set for July 17th of this calendar year. MBBS applicants wrote in the letter that the date for this year’s National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) has been announced, despite the fact that counselling for the exam from the previous year has not yet been completed.

“A large number of candidates for NEET and dropouts from 2021 waited until the mop-up round of NEET 2021 counselling in the hope of getting a seat in a medical program, but they were unsuccessful.”

This year, many students could not calculate their percentage of getting a seat due to the changed reservation policy in NEET 2021 counselling, and suddenly, after three days,

NTA announced on April 6 that NEET 2022 would be conducted on July 17, 2022, “the letter read.” The mop up round concluded in the first week of April. State counseling is not yet complete in many states.

It was stated that there would not be sufficient time for a multitude of dropouts and freshmen to prepare for NEET. The exam for the previous year was initially scheduled to take place on August 1;

however, it was moved to September 12 as a result of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. ” In addition, the CUET will take place during the first and second weeks of July, and the second attempt at the JEE mains will begin on July 21, 2022. Students will have a significant amount of stress to deal with on July 17 due to NEET.

“The pursuit of an MBBS degree is an aspiration shared by lakhs of students, and the feelings of their parents and educators are intimately connected to this goal.”

However, as a direct result of the premature dates that were announced, they are beginning to give up on their dreams. “Kindly ensure that they have enough time to prepare for the test in order for them to do well on it,” the letter states.

The petitions seeking a postponement of the 2022 NEET-Post Graduate examinations were rejected by the Supreme Court last week. The court stated that any change to the date of May 21 “will create chaos, uncertainty, and a deficiency of doctors in hospitals.”
