The national board of examination NBE has realised the NEET PG-2023 exam pattern along with the information brochure at nbe.edu.in. The exam pattern of NEET PG-2023 mentions the structure, number of NEET PG-2023 questions ,marking scheme duration and other details.
As per the NEET PG-2023 paper pattern, a total of 200 multiple choice questions will be asked in the NEET PG exam. The NEET PG-2023 question paper will be of total 800 marks. For every correct answer ,four marks will be awarded while one mark will be deducted for every wrong attempt.
If NBE had directly released the cut-off date when the information bulletin was released in January 2023, there would have been no issues. How can a candidate who got permission to apply barely 25 days prior to the examination be equal to the candidates who had permission to apply 60 days prior to the examination”, the petitioners argued.
During the hearing on Friday, the bench observed that postponement of the exam will cause to hardship to several students, considering the fact that over 2 lakh candidates have already registered for NEET-PG 2023. The bench also observed that the petitioners were not otherwise eligible to appear for the exam on March 5, 2023, and became eligible only because of the relaxation granted by the NBE. Therefore, can the petitioners now seek to defer the exams, asked the bench.
The bench however sought the response of the NBE and posted the matter today.
