NEET PG 2023 could be the last; to be replaced with National Exit Test for MBBS students



The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test-Postgraduate (NEET-PG) examination scheduled for April-May next year could be the last such examination as the admission to PG medical courses thereafter will be based on the results of the National Exit Test to be taken by final-year MBBS students, officials have said.

At a high-level meeting held recently, the National Medical Commission (NMC) is learned to have conveyed to the Union Health Ministry that it intends to conduct the National Exit Test (NExT) in December 2023. If held in December 2023, MBBS students of the 2019-2020 batch will have to appear for the examination.

The results of the exam will also be used for admission to postgraduate medical courses from the 2024-2025 batch.
