A section of dental students have been demanding the NEET MDS to be held in July 2024. These aspirants took to several social media platforms expressing their disappointment for the insufficient information from NBEMS. NEET MDS aspirants have been tagging Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, and Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya on social media platforms to look into the matter.
Taking to X (formally Twitter), a candidate posted, “If you’re a dental student concerned about the NEET MDS 2024 exam being scheduled for March instead of July, you’re not alone! There has been no official notification of this change, and it’s unclear why the exam dates are still not out! However, we believe that this change is unfair to students who have been preparing for the exam without clear dates and schedule. We urge everyone reading this to help the aspirants by joining our voices in calling for the exam to be postponed to July. This way, all students can have a fair chance at success.”
Another aspirant wrote on X, “It feels discriminated as a dental graduate as NEETMDS is reportedly scheduled for the 3rd week of March while NEETPG has been pushed to July7th with counseling in August. Feeling the weight of unfair treatment.”
