What do NEET PG 2023 students demand?

Candidates taking the NEET PG 2023 exam want it to be delayed by a few weeks because their internship schedule doesn’t allow them to complete the exam quickly. The national board of examination has set the exam date and increased the internship time. Many counselors and experts are backing the students to extend the exam time. This is due to the ongoing Covid situation, causing delays in exams every year. The exam was supposed to be held in January but was postponed last year because doctors were busy treating Covid patients.

What is the official decision regarding the NEET PG 2023 exam?

The NEET exam will still happen as planned and no delay has been announced, according to the official information posted on their website.
