National Board of Examination (NBE) has released that they are going to consider MBBS marks of aspirants while preparing merit list for NEET Post Graduate 2018. Previous, the date of birth of aspirants was used to select an aspirant among several aspirants with equal score i.e. an aspirant older in age was given the preference over a younger one. The releasement came out on February 2, 2018, soon after the result declaration.
However, the change is the need for the procedure due to an increase in cases of aspirants making inaccurate entries of their MBBS score in the online application forms. The change will also ensure a correct and fair tie-break between/among aspirants.
NEET Post Graduate 2018 was taken by approximately 1.3 lakhs MBBS doctors, to compete for post-graduation seats in top government and private medical college across the country. Given the famously of the exam, the discrepancy in the MBBS scores of the aspirants is inevitable. The introduction of MBBS score as a criterion in preparation of merit list is a suitable step to address this issue.
"This is unlike earlier NEET Post Graduate and All India PG Medical Entrance Examination where the only date of birth was utilized as a tie-breaking criterion. Due to aspirants making inaccurate MBBS marks entries in the online application form and in order to ensure that the tie-breaking is correct, NBE has given a onetime final opportunity to all the participant aspirants to make corrections in their MBBS marks via the online portal and submit their scanned MBBS professional mark sheets as a proof of the same for the purpose of verification by NBE," as said in the press announce by NBE officials.
This year forward aspirants will need to submit their MBBS scorecards for verification by the officials, unlike before.
NEET Post Graduate 2018 was organized on January 7, 2018 and the result of an exam was declared on January 23, 2017. Registration for the counseling session of the aspirants who made it to the merit list is expected to begin by the second week of March 20018.
