Centre decides to defer change in NEET-SS Exam pattern to 2022-23
| Education Jagat - 16 Oct 2021

In relief to thousands of young doctors pursuing higher specialisation courses, the Centre told the Supreme Court that in the interest of students, it has decided to implement changes in the pattern of the NEET-Super Speciality (NEET-SS) examination from the academic year 2022-23. The government indicated that it may defer the examination for the academic year 2021-22 by a couple of months as they have to start the process all over again.
 The top court was hearing a batch of pleas of 41 post-graduate doctors and others who had challenged the last-minute changes made to the syllabus after the notification was issued on July 23 for the test to be held on November 13 and 14. A Bench of Justices DY Chandrachud, Vikram Nath, and BV Nagarathna recorded the submission of Additional Solicitor General Aishwarya Bhati and disposed of a batch of pleas of students who have challenged the Centre’s decision to implement changes in the examination pattern of NEET-Super Speciality from this year.
 Bhati said: “In the interest of the students, who have prepared in line with the old scheme, the government in consultation with the two expert bodies (National Medical Commission (NMC) and National Board of Examination (NBE)) has decided that this revised scheme of NEET-SS will be implemented from 2022.”
 She said that this will mean that the current NEET-SS-2021 will be held by the norms that were there in the NEET-SS-2020.
