Supreme Court Hearing on NEET PG 2024 Postponement: The Supreme Court of India will take the first hearing on NEET MDS 2024 postponement on February 16. A petition was filed on February 8 by Advocate Sumanth Nookala on behalf of the petitioners. The petitioners are seeking to postpone the NEET MDS exam 2024 till July. The entrance exam for PG Dental courses is scheduled to be conducted on March 18.

The petitioners indicated that the National Board of Examinations postponed the NEET PG 2024 till July and did not postpone the NEET MDS exam. Usually, both of these exams happen in the same month every year and the counselling also happens at the same time. Therefore, if the candidates appear for the exam on March 18, there will not be any counselling process till August. On the other hand, many aspirants will not be able to complete their internship by the specified cutoff date. Almost 8,800 students signed a digital petition seeking the postponement of NEET MDS.
