More time for postgraduate counselling?
Bangalore: Medicos aspiring for post graduate studies may get an additional month for seat selection process. Aspirants who have written RGUHS PG entrance test, National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) PG 2013, and other entrance examinations have to wait for the announcement of results. However, the delay on NEET judgment has taken away a lot of time for PG counselling.
A senior officer from Medical Education Department said, “As per the SC order, admissions for post graduate seats must be completed by May 30. But due to the case hearing on NEET, there is a possibility of extending the last date to June 30. There will be no compromise on ensuring that students get maximum time for seat selection process.”
“The judgment on NEET will be heard on Thursday and soon, counselling will begin. If there is a paucity of time, the government may decide to conduct just one round of counselling to complete the admissions,” the official said.
