The week began with NEET PG candidates seeking a potential postponement of the exam, which is currently slated for March. As the week progressed, updates emerged regarding the registration date for NEET UG, with the latest news surfacing at the end of the week.

Here are the latest developments and important news related to the medical entrance exams

NEET PG Postponement Hearing Update

On Friday, the Supreme Court considered the plea for the postponement of NEET PG 2023 but did not decide. The bench fixed the hearing for the following Monday because of incomplete information.

The National Board of Examinations (NBE) informed the Supreme Court that approximately 2.09 lakh candidates have registered for NEET-PG 2023. They also stated that if the exam is postponed, there may not be another suitable date available in the near future.

The candidates are looking for a postponement of the examination because they believe that due to changes in eligibility, they did not have enough time to study and also to shorten the time between the examination and counseling dates. It was previously one month. We are therefore given less time… We are requesting a slight time extension for the exam. According to LiveLaw, Senior Adv Gopal Shankaranarayanan said to the bench It was pushed last year.

But, the bench warned the candidates that this postponement may upset the entire scenario. “First, you claim that you’re ineligible. You claim there isn’t enough time for the exam after being declared eligible. They were informed that they must wait for months even though they have been prepared for months. We are also aware that when we delay, applicants who have prepared suffer, and the entire dynamic is altered, the bench observed.

The matter has been postponed by the judge pending Additional Solicitor General Aishwarya Bhat’s attendance on behalf of NBE.

The official schedule states that the NEET PG exam will take place on March 5 and that the results will be tentatively accessible by March 31.

One year after the Ukraine-Russia war delayed Indian students' pursuit of their MBBS degrees

Hundreds of Indian students who had been studying in Ukraine for almost a year have now returned home, abandoning their plans to earn a medical degree there. Almost 15,783 students abandoned their MBBS degrees and went back to India due to the Ukraine-Russian conflict. A total of 3,964 Indian medical students have been admitted through the Academic Transfer Program, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Also, some 170 students have signed up for the Academic Mobility Program.

While this was going on, a few nations, including Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and a few others, offered to accept students who were enrolled in Ukrainian medical colleges.

Tamil Nadu government challenges NEET validity in Supreme Court

In an appeal to the Supreme Court, the Tamil Nadu government argues that the single window common test violates the federalism concept and should not be used to determine eligibility for admission to medical programs at universities across the country.

The state government claimed in a lawsuit under Article 131 of the Constitution that the federalism principle, which is a fundamental component of the Constitution, is being infringed by exams like NEET since it denies states’ ability to make decisions about education. The Supreme Court upheld the validity of NEET in 2020, according to the argument made in the petition by attorney Amit Anand Tiwari, on the grounds that it was necessary to stop unfair practices like admitting candidates based on their ability to pay, charging a capitation fee, large-scale fraud, abusing students, making a profit, and commercialization.

“The National Eligibility Comprehension Entrance Test, or NEET, is used to determine admission to medical colleges. Chouhan stated that government school students would receive reservations in medical programs regardless of caste. He continued by saying that the new quota will guarantee admission to medical colleges for a specific number of pupils from public schools.


On February 17, the National Board of Examinations (NBE) reopened the online application window to allow applicants to make changes to the information on the already-completed NEET for Masters of Dental Surgery (MDS) form 2023.

On the official NBE website,, applicants who have already registered for NEET MDS 2023 but committed errors in the application form with regard to photos can add images.
