The National Board of Examinations (NBE) has announced that there is a least possibility to conduct NEET Super Speciality or NEET SS in July or August as coronavirus continues wreaking havoc leading to increased cases of total count across the country.
The NBE, the national level body working under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare conducts various post graduate medical entrance examinations. It has already differed the exit examinations of MD, MS and DNB Broad Specialty candidates across the country in view of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, as per a report.
“In view of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the exit examinations of MD, MS and DNB Broad Specialty candidates have been deferred across the country. Therefore, their Final Examinations results are also unlikely to be declared by 15th July 2020 which is the cutoff date as per existing regulations to qualify MD/MS/DNB Broad Specialty exit exam for being eligible to appear in NEET SS of respective admission year,” the Board said in a statement recently.
“The NEET SS – 2020 is, therefore, unlikely to be conducted in July/August 2020,” the statement added.
However, the Board has advised candidates to check the NBE website (www.natboard.edu.in) regularly where the schedule for conduct of NEET-SS 2020 will be published in due course.
